Great place. Enjoy the usual quietude and ask a lot of questions. There are a couple different locations to visit in the area. Look for their Harness series lectures and try to attend any you are interested in.
An amazing place! When at the visitor center, be sure to see the short film which provides an explanation about the earthworks and some insights into the brilliance of the native American culture that built them. The earthworks are impressive!
