The site itself is basically the museum built to resemble a native mound,nature trails, a few small mounds, and the remaining large mound The film is boring but the museum has a good collection of items from excavated mounds. Saul's Mound, the... More

The mounds were cool to look at, and we liked that the museum was made to look like a mound. The only disappointment we had was that the boardwalk was closed partway down the trail due to repair and there was no sign indicating that until you walked all the way to the closed portion.

Be sure to wear comfortable clothing and shoes for this primarily outdoor park. There are several Native American mounds located at the park, mostly accessible from walking trails. The largest one is difficult to see because of the trees and underbrush growing on it. However, the most adventurous will get an idea of its size by climbing the many flights... More

I walk the trails here weekly and it's always well maintained. The museum and plaques posted around the mounds are full of information regarding the historical aspect of the area. They have a nice picnic area with a newer, up to date play area for the kids.

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. Everything is covered with trees so it is not as visually arresting as it could be. However, the key to appreciating this... More

Native Americans in the Mid south region were unique in habit and culture. Learn more by watching the movie. The hills and depressions along the walking trails were used for various ceremonies. For cool fun,look into renting the group camp. Bunk house style cabins, showers and full kitchen. Bring the family bikes and ride around. No camping or digging allowed.... More
