This is a great small state park, It's hidden but well worth a visit. Great place to take the family and learn some history, take a walk and enjoy a lunch under the pavilion.

Mounds are not too exciting, but the surrounding area is beautiful. They trees, the grass, the open air. All is great and similar to other earthworks around town. Must visit!
