This site brings together the history of many cultures that have lived alongside the Ocmulgee River in Georgia since ancient times, featuring a trove of archaeological artifacts on display at the visitor center, a thousand-year-old earthen lodge, and seven burial and ceremonial mounds to explore. The river corridor itself offers hiking, boating, and bird-watching opportunities, and the park hosts a spectacular Native American festival each September, showcasing hundreds of dancers, singers, musicians, storytellers and artists from more than a dozen different Native American nations.
