REVIEWS OF Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park IN Arkansas

Jeremy Rhodes

Wow! It has been years, when I was a kid, since I have been here. But this place is great. What little impression I had when I was a kid was blown out of the water by what we experienced today, we took the family of four, which included a …

Kris Huckaba

Awesome experience, learned a lot thanks to the wonderful park interpreters.

Shawn

Off the beaten Path but worth the stop but being water and mosquito repellant in the summer months...trails are paved..lots of covered bench areas...

Mark Young

Very interesting park. Beautiful walk, especially down by the river oxbow.

Michael Skinner

Boys love learning an seeing the mounds cold day but great time

Cindy Warhurst

It was a wonderful experience to go an see the mounds. They have a 10 minute movie to watch that explains about the mounds an history of the area. The museum had lot of information on how Indians made tools an cured animal skins an the use of them. Very clean...very friendly staff. It's totally free. If you have a few hours an like history an museums you should see it.

Always interesting

Daniel Botero

Small park, but great facilities. There is a short 3/4 mile, paved trail around the park that includes a scenic walk over parts of the lake. Along the way signs and the booklet they give you talk about the different parts of the park. Inside the main entrance is a small museum. All in all, my family had a very pleasant visit and were fascinated to see artifacts and learn about the people that occupied this area 1000 years ago.

John Stevens

I went with friends and I enjoyed it

Trisha Freitag

Out of the way, away from Little Rock, gorgeous and interesting park.

Dawna Stirrup

Very cool state park! They provide lots of free materials and have a great mini museum with a fur pelt touch table. Tails are short and flat, making this an easy trip for the family. Loved that pets are welcome!

Great experience. Friendly and helpful staff. Educational.

crystal gibson

A great piece of history!

Went for a Cub Scout activity and everything was amazing. The ladies there were very friendly and informative and kept all the boys engaged throughout the day with different activities. It's a great place for anyone interested in Native American history.

Dan Durning

Enjoyable visit to the past. Many mysteries. Good self-guided walking tour.

Stephiane Stovall

Toltec Monds was a great experience! Little one is working on her Explorer Badge. One State Park down. Three more to go.

Laura Hestwood

Kind staff. Some of the paths are paved and easily wheel chair/stroller accessible. The rest are dirt paths that could also be if you have good tires. Cool morning walk just a little ways outside Little Rock

Scotty Earnest

Very educational about our heritage. Take the kids out there and have fun. Easy to find take Hwy 165 south out of North Little Rock Ar. towards England Ar. Have fun and be safe this summer and learn something.

Gnome and Fairy Pottery

Really beautiful park. We really enjoyed it

jeanine millar

It was really interesting

Chuck Duncan

Mound sites are always a special place to visit. Misunderstood and unappreciated, their importance is a lost science. This is a must see if you are in the area. Spend the day here, it is worth it.

David Tanner

It's a bit hilly but other than that quite beautiful and the people who work there are quite knowledgeable about their subjects

Rebecca Schramm

Very low key. The visitors center is aimed at kids, but the mounds themselves are really cool. For what it is, it was very interesting.

Candice Collins

Nice friendly

Terry Clark

Had a great visit. Museum was informative and the grounds were nice. A good place for a short hike around the grounds.

MO

Very neat little place! Nice walk around the mounds. A great place for a family outing!

Francisco Vasquez III

Love the plum bayou trail and the cute French interpreter

Rebecca Hau-Scritchfield

We went for the winter solstice to watch the sunset and take the tour. The tour was fantastic, filled with great great information from knowledgeable rangers. We've been a few times now and I learn something new each time.

Joseph Smith

It was a cool adventure and they have excellent guides to inform you on the history of the mounds and the area.

Suzan Hugen

Wonderful learning experience

Paul Aviles

This is a mysterious place. Peaceful, beautiful grasslands, prairies, and wetlands. Bring the mosquito spray if its warm out. The mounds are amazing! Entry is free, souvenirs are priced affordably the bathrooms are spotless. Please donate what you can to keep places like these running and clean.

Emily Bures

I love this park. Great for exercise with breath taking scenery. There are bald eagles on the lake as well.

Ann W

I took my children to see the mounds. We arrived too late to go out on the trail, so we shopped at the store. It has a lot of affordable items. We were also able to see the museum inside. What a beautiful place, and narrated as well! No charge for that. I will definitely be returning there!

Lincoln Estill

Interesting history though a little lack luster.

Shae Porter

We had a quiet and relaxing walk through the mounds. We fed a few turtles on the Arkansas River and there was no cost associated with any of the tours, museum or videos.

Brian Golden

Nice education and visitor center with a short movie and various displays. Two easy hikes available, one that is paved throughout. Dont miss the boardwalk behind the larger mound.

Amber Vaughn

Very interesting and informative

Scott Denton

I visited this place as a teenager and enjoyed it a lot. So I took my grandkids out there on spring break for something to do for a day. The kidos liked it more than I thought they would. It didn't cost a penny and was pretty cool for a few dirt hills in the middle of a field.

Charles Todd

Boring, no guided tour or events to draw interest. Good exercise if you just want to walk the trails around a open field and read a few signs with information on them. Staff was friendly, but its just not enough to do or see.

S. Jason Bransford

Awesome history! Great hike and info as you go. Great addition to Poverty Point!

kenny diffy

Neat place & historically interesting. Friendly staff but after calling days ahead to confirm and being reassured they could accommodate our potentially large group they were largely unprepared even though we brought less than half our anticipated group.

Steven King

Went on a field trip and the kids had an awesome time. Emily was a fantastic guide!!!

Micaela Campbell

Very beautiful park, I recommend the shorter trail, absolutley beautiful bridges and lake.

king tony

Great experience

John Donna

Interesting exhibits in (free) visitor center, big picnic/bbq area. Nice paved and/or grass paths with easy access. (Dogs allowed, on leash.) Huge grounds, so even if there's a school field trip it won't be overcrowded - there's even a separate Education Center building. Good & relevant gift shop. Allow time for the nearby Plantation Agriculture Museum, they have much more than you'd think.

Melanie Holmes

They have really good staff. The tram/walking trail is very educational and is going to be a memory I hold on too.

AquaPink 368

It is very historical and cool.

T Nolan

All the rangers are knowledgeable, passionate, friendly and welcoming. We laughed a lot and laughed a lot!

Kelly Renode

I love visiting this place

Jeannie Belew

Great place to go on a nice day....nice little walk around the mounds

Michael Matthews

Good little park, nice gift shop and staff.

Gary Griggers

Awesome place. Real neat waterfront path as well there

Edward Hobbs

Easy to get to, and we'll worth the visit. There"s a museum and the mounds themselves are amazing to look at.

Heather Miller

nice walk even for wheel chairs. stop off resting places shaded

Casalauren. com

Not too much to see but very interesting.

Andy Morgan

Wonderful little museum with friendly staff. The walk around the Mounds is easy and beautiful. The walk is hot in the summer though.

Bradley Atkins

I visited as part of a BSA Archeology trip. The park guides were very helpful and informational. The mounds were a sight to behold, only able to be appreciated from up close.

Jessica Grgurich

We enjoyed our visit here. Super peaceful reflection on our history and lots of information in the museum. Easy walking path around the mounds and along the pond. We stayed on the paved path though could probably easily have done the other longer path with the stroller. Really neat FREE experience!

Dave Jackson

Well preserved and well interpreted archeological site. They can accommodate small and large groups, have a nice gift shop and have professionally made exhibits.

Mark Brown

Easy access, lots of displays and uninterrupted native grounds. Looks as if the original peoples just broke camp and left. The state parks wisely left the interpretation of what went on here up to the visitor. They share archaeology methods and findings but force no "vision" on visitors. Great little park

Tracy Phillips

Interesting place to visit. Nice visitor center.

Jac Duc

The overall experience was pretty good. There were 2 trails to choose from, one was a bit longer than the other. And both trails had little guide books to help you understand the history of the Plum Bayou people. The scenery was very nice and the view by the lake was very beautiful. The only problem I had when visiting was the concrete path I took. I choose the Knappe trail, the 3/4 mile trail, and on the path was what seemed like duck poop all over. I couldn't look up very often because of the poop. But other than that it was a really good experience.

MotherGoosePermaculture A-S-Kelly

Good natural science collection. Friendly and knowledgeable ranger.

Justin Bearden

Tour guide was amazing one of the best parks in the state

Michael Smith

If you like to learn about Native American history in Arkansas this has some interesting things to see. There are only a few remaining mounds as previous farmers flattening the others for agriculture. It's a bit disappointing that there is so little known about the inhabitants or what tribe called this place home. The state has done a nice job trying to figure out who they were through excavation and historical maps. It has a nice paved walking trail that is 0.8 miles and a rustic trail that is just short of 2 miles. The trails have numbered markers and a booklet with information to read as you go. The trails pass around the plazas and there is a nice boardwalk to the oxbow lake with many Bald Cypress trees that border the site. It's free to tour the museum and self guided tour. They offer guided tours a few days a week for a fee. The staff was friendly and helpful, the facilities were clean and maintained. I'm surprised I didn't visit the site before and I plan on returning soon. Nothing flashy or digital but it's nice to take in nature and try to imagine the life these people led.

Robert Oliver

Great place for historic tour....

Alex volpert

Nice, clean visitor center with an educational museum area. Restrooms, snacks and novelty gifts. Hike around park is educational and the views are inspiring.

atina 90

Lovely park with great history about the Native Americans of Arkansas. Short drive from Little Rock. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The 10min film provides a good background of how the site was used.

Pearl Street

Fascinating!

Sidney Counts

The interpreters were great. I went with a work group and will go back with my family in the future.

Joseph/Donald/ Matone

Nice

John Love

great place

Marsha Lance

An interesting g stop if you are in the area.

Dennis Simpson

As usual in Arkansas and most other states state parks are one of the greatest values around... In the state of Arkansas all state parks are free and the Toltec Mounds is no exception but it is an exceptional Place prehistoric and I mean prehistoric tens of thousands of years ago Indians lived here built large Mounds on this incredibly fertile Plains on the Delta live near the Arkansas River and were able to harvest a great livelihood and sustain themselves for Millennia... Although little is known about the people the state of Arkansas has spent a great deal of time and energy trying to must have been exceptional use of our tax dollars

Carol Swboni

The native garden is fantastic. The walk around the Mounds area is flat, so walking is easy. Lots to learn!

Kelly Moss

This was a great trip! So cool that such great history is in our backyard!

Wendy Collier

This was a long walk but would definitely be coming back lots of history
