  • This is a very interesting place for archaeology buffs. The main structure, Saul's Mound is 72 feet high and there are stairs to take you to the top. The rest of the area has some other smaller mounds...  read more »
  • This is a good historical site and takes about three hours to fully enjoy. Lots of area to runs kids around and tire them out. 
  • Had no idea this was maintained as it is. Hats off to the State of Tennessee in preserving and maintaining history and nature! 
  • A perfect place for a spring or fall stroll through West Tennessee woodlands that formerly were inhabited by Native Americans. They even have an "under mound" museum dedicated to the history of the area. They still don't know what the mounds were for but one of them has an observation deck on top that you can look out for miles of there aren't leaves in the trees once traverse the several flights of stairs to the top. There's also a board walk that snakes through the cypress trees along the river.
  • This was a beautiful park but something about it bothered me. It seems weird to have bike paths and steps to the tops of mounds when the place really is like a cemetery. It seemed that whomever developed the park had little reverence for the original purposes of the land. It was indeed beautiful though.
  • Amazing they don't charge for how nice it is.
  • The Pinson Mounds Park may be one of the best sites east of the Mississippi River to learn about Native American and Chickasaw culture. The main building at the park is built to resemble what a mound would look like as it did in it's own time. The facility is first rate. The staff is great! They were more knowledgeable than I could have ever imagined. Part of my family heritage goes back to Chickasaws that lived in northern Mississippi. If you have an interest in, or family connection to Native Americans, this park is a must see!!! .
  • A great experience for a German to learn about American natives. Not so many differences to german prehistoric knowledge.
