Great Native American field trip. This is a big open park, so you do have to do a lot of walking and climbing if you want to see it all. There are parking areas near each mound for those who want to drive then walk.

There is a small building that has a museum of artifacts from the excavation of the mounds. It shows a movie all about it, and sells things like tee shirts, necklaces, and books information on Native Americans.

There are several mounds, and some allow you to climb to the top.

And at the time we went they had a small garden or plants veggies that would have been at bottom of a mound that would have been food for the natives.
