Letchworth-Love Mounds Archaeological State Park is just a short drive east of Tallahassee, Florida, and offers numerous recreational opportunities.

Located at the site of a large ceremonial complex, the park features one of the tallest earthen mounds in Florida, nearly 50 feet in height! There’s a paved walking surface and boardwalk to take you close to this inspiring ceremonial mound.

The park tells the story of the Native peoples who occupied the site. I always enjoy a walk down the nature trail where you may see animals such as deer, turkeys and squirrels in their natural habitat.

While you’re enjoying the park be sure to look up. Many migratory bird species can often be spotted heading to Lake Miccosukee in the winter months.

If you have questions about the park, wish to reserve a pavilion or inquire about our numerous volunteer opportunities, please call the Tallahassee-St. Marks administration office at 850-487-7989.

I look forward to seeing you in the park!
