Ranger Guided Programs

September through May, visiting Mound City Group and the other public units of Hopewell Culture NHP are self-guided. Pick-up site bulletins and walking maps at the Mound City Group visitor center to begin your journey. Ranger guided programs take place Memorial Day through Labor Day. Check back for details or look for a scheduled event in the calendar below.

If you're visiting with a group, you can request a guided tour of the park. Please call the park three weeks in advance to advise us of your visit so that we can confirm there will be sufficient staff on hand to provide the tour. Please call the park at 740-774-1126 for more information or to schedule your tour. All tours and programs are always free.
