  • It's a very beautiful place with a lot of good historical information. When it's wet, it can be a little muddy, so wear shoes that won't slip and slide. There is a nice nature trail to walk. Unfortunately, the gift shop/info center was closed, but the gentleman came outside to greet us and explain the various pamphlets. He was very knowledgeable and gave good directions on how to begin our self guided tour
  • 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.
  • It's store and museum is currently closed for renovation. However our grandson had a great time.
  • 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.
