The Turtle Mound is a nice place to visit if it's not very hot nor early/late in the day when mosquito's are most lively. It is a pretty amazing gathering of shells collected by the early Indians and great view of the Lagoon and Ocean at the top. Small park and some historical buildings in the area there to visit... 更多
Absolutely worth the visit (other reviews give great details as to why). I just want to remind visitors that Mosquito Lagoon is named that for a reason. Don't let that scare you off - just be prepared so the bugs don't ruin your visit. I went early morning when bugs were at their worst but temps were at the best... 更多
This was a surprise for us - never anticipated such a scrap mound of shells from Native Americans having lived here - some 30 feet high! Nicely presented within the Canaveral National Seashore (another beautiful surprise at its well-maintained isolation). they also have an area walk along the shoreline that is under renovation - it provides a glimpse of how... 更多
Take a drive down through Canaveral National Seashore & stop at Turtle Mound. Great views of the ocean & river. Very peaceful location. I rode my bike here & just walked it up to the top.
The walkway to the turtle mound is a must. It is incredible how large the mound is. The view from the mound is amazing, you can see the Lagoon and the Ocean at the same time.
Beautiful place to visit. Turtle mound is built on oyster shells and has a great view when you go to the top. Very easy walk and very historical.
The highest peak in the region, Turtle Mound is 35 feet high entirely built of oysters, clams and other seashells and bones. Part of Canaveral National Seashore Park at the Southernmost point of New Smyrna Beach, it is an archeological site that contains information about the original Indian settlers, the Timucuans. A long wooden walkway, well maintained by the Park... 更多
Still some mosquitoes around, but a fascinating place to visit. Interesting bit of history. Went there with three 7-year-olds and even they found it interesting - but second in interest to the beach.
Great spot to view Florida in the wild. Use to be a coast watch location during WW 2. Home of Indians hundreds of years ago. Had to be tough life years ago. But no politics of TV. What a concept?
I don't know what I was expecting, but, whatever it was, I didn't find it there. With a name like Turtle Mound, I didn't expect it to be something that the Indians had started. It was a nice walk, and you could view the ocean and the intercostal waterway from the higher points on the trail.
