This park is just beautiful. We walked most of the trails on a drizzly wet day in about 30-45 minutes. We climbed the steps to the biggest mound and could see out onto the river as well as around the park. It was a nice quiet place that we really enjoyed. Due to COVID, the museum is closed so there is very little information about the area. The signs are very lacking and maybe downright confusing. They did, thankfully, have the restrooms open. There is an honor box to collect your $3 fee to the park. No attendant, so have correct change or you can make an extra donation to the FL State Parks! ;)

This is a pleasant& accessible way to see mounds. The park building is closed but a large mound is a short walk from the parking lot. The views of the river from the top are great. You can spend 1/2 hour and see one mound or longer to walk the trails. Nice signage & the benches at the top of the mound are a nice touch.

Nice clean park to take a walk. Signs are very informative. We took our pups with us. Nice view from the top of the stairs on the shell mound.

Been to crystal River many times, and a rainy and windy day meant we had to look for non-water related things to do. This is a neat place, and you can do it all in about a half hour. Didn’t go inside, just walked around and read the plaques. Great views from the platform as well.
