Kolomoki Mounds

The mounds located in the park were built by the Weeden Island, Swift River, Kolomoki and Lamar Tribes of Native Americans. They probably chose this spot due to its proximity to three creeks/rivers. The mounds were built 200 BC and 1200 AD with all three tribes contributing to the mounds in the area. Pictured here is the Temple Mound which was used for religious ceremonies and commanded a great view of the village that existed below. This mound was built about 1200 AD.

Museum and Mound E

The visitors center and museum was built into the side of Mound E. This gives you a unique perspective into what a mound looks like during excavation and how the archeologists approach these sites to learn their secrets.

The Lakes

In addition to the mounds and museum, there are two lakes on site for boating and fishing. There are also 24 camping sites, group and individual picnic areas, hiking trails, and mini golf. The swimming pool is closed due to "economic reasons". Do not swim in the lakes unless you really want to see if you can outswim an alligator.
