Built and inhabited between 1200 and 1500 CE, Lake Jackson Mounds Archaeological State Park was the ceremonial center for the people of the Lake Walton culture.

Today, archaeological features in the park include four excavated temple mounds, the largest of which is 36 feet tall. The main nature trail that runs through the park leads you past other interesting historical features like the remains of a 19th-century grist mill and other historical remnants from the mid-1800s.
