    In truth it is a park with two small hills. The hills have been raised by indigenous people of which we know almost nothing. Who wants to walk a round and nice people explained by somewhat detailed the above let is right here. After the many free-ride, we were happy to be able to run a piece. So a recommendation.

    Denege Patterson was our docent who has an impressive knowledge of the Calusa Indians & the surrounding area's historical development. We happily added our name to the waiting list for the 2nd printing of her book looking at the history of the area! The signs make it an easy day of exploration on your own...or you can arrange a guided tour by calling ahead. Picnic area available for public use or the Pine Island Lodge is steps away for nice restaurant experience.

    Very informative, great gift shop, and an important historic site

    It is a beautiful place and a true testament to the ingenuity of people. However, this site is not (or not only) Calusa. It shares obvious construction techniques with a site in Georgia, and multiple sites in Mexico. Thus not only is this place a testament of ingenuity but also is a testament to the Diffusion of people of North and Central America.

    A gem of a historical archeology site inhabited by the Calusa people thousands of years ago. Well marked trail with dozens of interpretive signs, benches, viewing platforms and amazing views from the tops of the shell middens. Makes you rethink what you were taught in school that "Columbus discovered America."

    Nice nature trail and historical info about the Calusa natives, including background on tools, society and shell mounds, iof which there are multiple along the 0.7 miles of flora-rich and pond-strewn trails. About a dozen interpretive placards posted along the trails. Informative volunteer staff at the info center and gift shop. Suggested donations.
