Kolomoki Mounds
Copyright: - Georgia State Parks
Kolomoki Mounds
Description - Kolomoki Mounds State Historic Park is an important archaeological site as well as a recreational area. Seven earthen mounds within the 1,293 acre park were built during the 12th and 13th centuries by the Swift Creek and Weeden Island Indians. The mounds include Georgia's oldest great temple mound, two burial mounds and four ceremonial mounds. The park's museum features an actual excavated mound, providing an unusual setting for viewing artifacts and a film.

The park offers visitors 43 tent, trailer and RV campsites, a group camp, two group shelters, and seven picnic shelters. There are also two lakes for water activities, two swimming pools, hiking trails, and a miniature golf course.

Recreation - Kolomoki Mounds State Historic Park offers plenty of water recreation on the park's two lakes. Visitors can fish and boat taking advantage of the lake's docks, ramps and boat rentals. Camping, picnicking, hiking, swimming, miniature golfing, and touring the museum are also available at the park.

Climate - Georgia has a warm climate, especially in the southern regions of the state. Expect high temperatures and humidity levels during spring and summer months. The area can offer a relatively warm escape for snow-free outdoor recreation during the winter months.

Location - Kolomoki Mounds State Historic Park is located near the border of Georgia and Alabama in the Plains Region of southwestern Georgia. The park is situated six miles north of Blakely off of U.S. Hwy. 27.
