Be sure you go to the right area. We visited the mound group first and found nada. Mound CITY is where you want to be. Good facilities. Beautiful at dawn. Interesting and worth a stop. Be sure to bring sunscreen, hat, and bug spray.

23 plus earthen mounds over previous cremated charnel houses of the ancient Native American cultures indigenous to Southern Ohio.Enjoyed the knowledge of the Rangers. Also visit Trip Earthworks on US T 50 while in the area.

We had a wonderful day in the lovely outdoors visiting Mound City. It was awe inspiring and mind boggling to see what our ancestors planned and built with so little mechanical technology!
