If you are looking for historical text and artifacts, visit the nearby San Luis. This site is undisturbed burial mounds in a peaceful N. FL setting. I wouldn't recommend this as an "attraction" for visitors traveling through Tallahassee, but it is a must visit for...More

Love the site interpretation; cool history and a beautiful peaceful place. Could use more visible staff but understand budget restrictions.

It's a nice place to visit if you want to get out for a short walk. It would also be a great place to take your dog for a walk or to visit with small children.

A hidden gem, and a truly beautiful state park. Gorgeous trees and a creek that runs by. Not very many people, quiet and calm.

Lake Jackson Mounds preserves several beautifully preserved "Fort Walton" or Mississippian-era mounds and has a beautiful nature trail that winds through the remains of a 19th century plantation farming operation. The largest of the mounds is absolutely magnificent in size!

A bit of history tucked away just off Lake Jackson. Interesting mounds and history of the early peoples of that area. When you walk the area and see how close it was to the lake, you can get a glimpse of what their life may...More
