Hiking, wildlife viewing, and picnicking may be the most traditional activities observed at Lake Jackson Mounds Archaeological State Park, but families might be interested in taking a guided tour of the park's earthen temple mounds as well. A journey into Florida's Territorial Period and early statehood is just a short drive north of Florida State University, on the wildlife-rich southern border of Lake Jackson.
