Beautiful Setting... not sure about the 'Extras' – This is a lovely little park way out in the country. The closest gas station is at least 5 minutes away, the closest resturant is probably in Lebanon, about 10 minutes away. I saw this entry and couldn't help but laugh at the section that states "Argosy Casino and Resort is just down the road in Indiana." If by just down the road you mean at least an hour drive, then sure. If you were planning to include both the Mounds and the Casino in the same trip, make sure you plan accordingly.
With an eye to the past, the ancient serpent mounds and lush greenery are a sight for city-sore eyes. – In Short
Fort Ancient features 18,000 feet of earthen walls built 2,000 years ago by Native Americans as well as the famous serpent mounds. The site offers beautiful vistas along hiking trails. The Museum at Fort Ancient contains many interactive units, focusing on 15,000 years of Native American history in the Ohio Valley, as well as a classroom, a research area and a gft shop with many fine Native American items.
