Excursion to the Bottle Creek Mound Complex

Saturday, December 2nd,
Saturday, December 16th, and
January 13th

This winter Blakeley Park offers you several opportunities to join us for a guided excursion to the famous Bottle Creek Mounds, one of the Gulf Coast's largest Native American mound centers. As the site is accessible only by boat and located in the heart of the Mobile-Tensaw Delta, the best opportunity for a visit is in the winter when water levels are lower and vegetation less dense. The incredible Bottle Creek site features eighteen earthen mounds built centuries ago by Native Americans and was once of the largest communities in the region. The tallest of the mounds rises some 45 feet above the Delta marsh, ranking it among the largest of its type in the Southeast.

Guests will board the Delta Explorer at Lower Bryant's Landing (see map) at 9:30 AM for the cruise to the site, then go ashore for a walking tour of the mound complex and an optional hike to the top of the tallest of the mounds before returning to the Landing.
Historic Blakeley State Park staff will guide the tour.

$35 for adults/$17 for children ages 6-12
