Returning to Nature
Visitors are enjoying Cartersville’s Red Top Mountain State Park and Etowah Indian Mounds State Historic Site now more than ever. While Georgia State Park’s and Historic Sites remained open during COVID-19, many of the parks are experiencing times when day-use visitors exceed Georgia Department of Natural Resources Guidelines. When planning your next visit to enjoy Red Top Mountain State Park’s beautiful trails, beach and picnic facilities see ALERTS for current updates that may impact your visit.
The Etowah Indian Mounds State Historic Site is now open daily from 9 AM-5 PM. Plan a visit to make new discoveries at the Etowah Archaeological Museum, see Native American fish traps in the Etowah River, and get your daily steps in with a climb up Mounds A, B & C. Pack a picnic and spend the day at this pre-historic landmark overlooking the Etowah Valley District, which at 40,000 acres is, the largest district in the National Register of Historic Places.
