Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park

The Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park is a historic site that preserves the remains of a complex Native American civilization that thrived in the area thousands of years ago. The park contains 17 earthen mounds, as well as other evidence of a sophisticated culture, such as a plaza, village sites, and a defensive ditch. The mounds, some of which are over 60 feet tall, were built by the Mississippian people between 900 and 1150 A.D. and served as the foundations for important structures and homes. Visitors to the Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park can explore the mounds, learn about the lives of the people who built them, and see a reconstructed earthlodge, which provides a glimpse into the lifestyle of the Native Americans who lived in the area.

Places to Stay

FYI: The hotel prices are estimated and will most likely fluctuate since I looked them up on their website.  I will keep them updated the best I can every three months.  I look for the cheapest available room, usually a queen bed. I typically look at book rates two months in advance and in the middle of the month to get average rates. Reminder: It is an ESTIMATE
