OCUMULGEE MOUNDS VISITOR CENTER PICNIC AREA

The largest picnic area at Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park is located at the opposite end of the parking lot from the Visitor Center building. There are roughly thirty tables, but no grills. Some of the tables are connected to the parking lot via a paved path, so those in wheelchairs can access them. The rest are in the grass. Large trees shade the area from the sun.

FUNERAL MOUND PICNIC AREA

There are four tables located in the parking lot for Funeral Mound. There is absolutely no shade, and the tables are surrounded by asphalt, so on a hot day in Georgia you might as well be dining in hell. As with the tables near the Visitor Center, there are no grills.
