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.

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!
