'off the beaten path'

Mounds State Park, located off I-69 east of Anderson, features 10 unique "earthworks" built by a group of prehistoric Indians known as the Adena-Hopewell people. The largest earthwork, the "Great Mound", is believed to have been constructed around 160 B.C. Archaeological surveys seem to indicate it was used as a gathering place for religious ceremonies. Be sure to include time to visit the new Nature Center. The new building includes a bird viewing room, small animal displays and much more.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
April 28 my favorite park by yvonne
we love the space in between each campsite! the beach at the mounds campground is clean and beautiful. we come every year for the spooktacular in october. we try to camp there once a month during camping season.
June 1 Great place by DLDELIGHT
This campgrounds is great! The restrooms and showers are nice and clean! Also, the nature center is wonderful. The White River is great for kayaking and canoeing. It runs right by the campgrounds too.

Small park, but some decent (although easy) trails.. nothing strenuous at all, or longer than 2.5 miles. Lovely old trees, though!
February 15
The Mounds Park is a great place for Family gatherings. But when the system goes down to make reservations than the park office should be allowed to take the reservations.
June 20 Small park....grab picnic areas early by Jessie
The Pool was completely over capacity. Basically you were elbow to elbow. I thought they had capacity limits for safety? It was not pleasant when someone got sick in the pool and the staff waited to determine what to do. Then the staff decided to announce that the pool would close early. Not well managed.
May 10 by Jordan
Mounds is very nice and they have wonderful walkways. They do have a little raccoon problem though so its best to secure your food and flash lights.
May 7 awesome wilderness and forest by tina
