The Adamson Mounds Site (38KE11) is an archaeological site located near Camden, Kershaw County, South Carolina. It is a prehistoric Native American village site containing one large platform mound, a smaller mound, possibly a third still smaller mound, and a burial area. It served as a regional ceremonial center. This site represents a widespread, late prehistoric Mississippian culture known by the names of Lamar, Irene, or Pee Dee and dates probably between AD 1400 and AD 1700.[2][3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.[1]
