  • Lovely museum! My family and I stopped here and I am so glad we did ! With a GORGEOUS Native American Wood Carving in front, honoring all the native Americans especially those from the "Trail of Tears " , inside they display many historical items from the era and beyond. Plus free admission makes it a can't miss!!! Highly Recommend!!!
  • Let me start with the good. Beavers Bend State Park is a beautiful area to visit and paddle along the river. We have visited several times and enjoyed ourselves each time. However, we visited this past weekend and were surprised/disappointed when we stopped by the Heritage Center on the way out to pay for our campsite. Our group of 4 adults and 1 toddler stayed for 2 nights at a single campsite in Hickory that consisted of a picnic table, fire ring, and charcoal grill. According to their documentation, a single site should cost $14/night. But when stopping by the Heritage Center to pay our fees, we were asked how many tents and/or hammocks were on the site. We told them 2 tents (3 person tent and 6 person tent) and 3 hammocks so they wrote up the ticket as $84 for the two nights. We explained that it was only 4 adults and a toddler at a single primitive site but they told us that a tent and hammock makes up a unit and that each unit is $14/night. A couple thoughts. First, that would mean they undercharged us. Second, that's robbery. And third, they don't even advertise a "unit" price in the handout they had there at the center. Oddly enough, when questioned about this, several people in the office affirmed that $84 was the correct price. This was the first time we were ever charged this much. As much as we enjoy visiting this place, there is no way we will pay this kind of price again. If a partial refund is not issued and they stand by this as truly being their rate, we will find other places to camp going forward.
