Get lost in beauty and history while visiting Kolomoki Mounds State Park. This historically-significant park is the oldest and largest Woodland Indian site in the southeast, dating back to 350 to 750 a.d. The mounds include Georgia’s oldest great temple mound, standing 57 feet high, two smaller burial mounds and four ceremonial mounds. The park’s museum is built around an excavated mound. Inside, visitors can view artifacts and watch a film.
In addition to learning about Native Americans, visitors to Kolomoki Mounds can also enjoy outdoor activities. Two lakes create opportunities for fishing and boating, and the park has canoes and kayaks available to rent. Hikers can choose from three scenic trails that offer views of the lakes, circle the mounds and pass through part of the village area. There are playgrounds and a beach for seasonal swimming. There is also a miniature golf course and picnic shelters. Those staying overnight will find a campground nestled under hardwood and pines with room for tents and RVs. Visitors also have access to public restrooms and a gift shop.
