  • This is an interesting State Park About Native American Indians. So little is said in our modern culture about the "original americans!" MORE needs to be said about these "great people." This park has...  more »

  • Town Creek Indian Mounds is an undeveloped historical site. The visitors facility was being renovated at the time of my visit. The reservation doesent make a huge tourist attraction so it does a great job preserving the natural environment at the same time highlighting the historical relevance.
  • Primitive site but very educational. Paving new road and parking lot. Visitor Center closed for renovation. Closed on Mondays regularly. Beautiful nature trail. Estimate spending 2 hours minimal. Will come back again.
  • We visited on a late summer afternoon during the week and had a great time. This historical site is off the beaten path, but well worth visiting. The information presented was informative, entertaining, and well laid out. We found the facilities clean and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and well versed on the site. Leaving the visitors center and entering the actual mound site really gives a feeling of stepping back in time.
  • Great history experience for all ages and friendly people. A must see environment.
  • I live right near the burial site. My ancestors have been DNA. Traced back to the pee dee Indian whitch. Have been linked to the tribes. That lived along the pee dee river long before it had a name it is a wonderful place to visit and take in some of the history of and about early Natives
