Welcome to Ocmulgee National Monument. This park is a memorial to the relationship between people and natural resources. Native Americans first came here during the Paleo-Indian period to hunt Ice Age mammals. Several cultures occupied this land for thousands of years, each creating their own history here. The Mississippian culture arrived here around 900CE and constructed mounds for the elite members of their society. Today the mounds remain for all to see and explore.

The visitor centre has an exhibition with archaeological finds. Outside you can take a walk to a reconstructed large hut (under grands and the corridor is low and narrow) and to several other locations. Very special.
Very interesting place to visit. The rich history of the indigenous peoples of this region is something so significant and I appreciate the preservation of this national park. Walking through the visitor center is a very memorable experience. I highly recommend anyone who may be in the Macon area to make a point of going to see these mounds.
Driving back to Florida and looking for something on the way home. Had no clue about this place before we stopped. It was interesting and informative. You can do a quick visit or take your time and look at things in more detail. Free!
