Lake Jackson Mounds Archeological State Park

3600 Indian Mounds Road, Tallahassee, Florida 32303 USA

“features 4 earthen mounds”

More than eight centuries ago, Native Americans inhabited the area around Lake Jackson, just north of Tallahassee. The park site was part of what is now known as the Southeastern Ceremonial Complex. Today the park encompasses four earthen temple mounds, with two available for viewing by the public. The largest mound is 278 feet by 312 feet at the base and approximately 36 feet in height. The village at the base of these mounds was a cultural, religious and population center in 1100-1200 AD. Our trails offer visitors a chance to hike within the park. The interpretive trail passes remnants of Florida’s Territorial Period and early statehood (1825-1860) when the land was part of a large plantation owned by Colonel Robert Butler. The remains of an 1800s grist mill may be seen along the trail. The nature trail winds through a sandhill community, passing many native trees and plants. Picnic tables are located within view of the two largest mounds. A pavilion is available for family gatherings and other special occasions. Guided tours are available upon request. Lake Jackson offers numerous opportunities for wildlife viewing and bird watching.
