Entrance to an Ocmulgee 
Earth Lodge
RV Vacation Idea: Ocmulgee National Monument 



Ancient American Indian culture is the centerpiece of this National Monument.   A number of prehistoric native people inhabited this land back some 17,000 years.  



The mounds are solid earth and were constructed to place structures on top of them.   They were also built to serve as places for the elite of the village to conduct meetings, important ceremonies and ultimately, to be buried there.  

You'll want to make sure you visit the museum while there to view relics from these ancient peoples.  Pottery, jewelry, pipes, and woodworking tools are just some of the artifacts you'll find there.  Other points of interest here are the Ocmulgee River Trail and the very special Ocmulgee Indian Celebration on the third weekend in September


While there are no campgrounds inside the monument, there are campgrounds in the vicinity.   Check out this Google map of nearby rv campgrounds for more information. 

Please visit our locations map to find a location that is suitable for your trip.

RV Recipe of the Month
Turtle Cookies
1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 large egg, separated, plus 1 additional egg white 
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup pecans, finely chopped
Carmel filling:
14 soft caramel candies
3 tablespoons heavy cream
Chocolate drizzle (optional)
2 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
1 teaspoon shortening
In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, cocoa and salt. Set aside.
On high speed in a stand mixer or with a hand mixer, beat together butter and sugar for about 2 minutes until light and fluffy.
Add egg yolk, milk and vanilla. Mix until incorporated. Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture until combined.
~ Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour.
~ Whisk egg white in a bowl until frothy.
~ Roll cookie dough into one inch balls. 
~ Dip the cookie balls into the egg white and roll in the chopped pecans until outside is coated.
~ Place the balls 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet and with a teaspoon, make a small indentation in each ball. 
Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes or until set. 
While they are baking prepare the caramel filling. Melt the caramel and heavy cream in the microwave stirring every 30 seconds until it is fully melted.
Once the cookies are baked, make the indentation again and using a teaspoon fill each indentation with the caramel.
If drizzling with chocolate, melt the chocolate and shortening in the microwave, and scoop into a ziplock bag. Barely snip the corner and drizzle over the cookies.
Note:  1 recipe yields 24 cookies
~ Enjoy!

Terra Pass Carbon Offset Option

We believe in Green RV'ing!  El Monte RV offers customers a way to offset the carbon emissions from their motorhome vacation by requesting the carbon offset option. This option is completely voluntary and is a very nominal fee.  We encourage you to consider this when booking your trip!


You can request the carbon offset option when you reserve via the call center, or when picking up at the rental counter.  It's easy, affordable, and every cent of this nominal fee goes straight to Terra Pass to fund various carbon-offsetting programs.
