Florence Marina State Park
Florence Marina is near the Rood Creek Indian Mound site located on Lake Walter F. George in western Stewart County. These eight mounds were focal points of an Indian community and served as a center for political and ceremonial activities during the Mississippian period. A model of the Rood Creek site is available in the Kirbo Interpretative Center. The Kirbo Interpretive Center showcases area wildlife and plants, local history and Native Americans, including artifacts from the prehistoric Paleo-Indian period through the early 20th century. Ten miles southeast is Providence Canyon State Conservation Park, known as Georgia’s Little Grand Canyon. The park once offered Rood Creek Indian Mounds tour every Saturday , April through November. It is unknown if and when these tours will ever be offered again.
