Indian Springs State Park, Flovilla

#48 of 75 in Nature in Georgia
Conveniently located near I-75 in middle Georgia, Indian Springs is one of the oldest state parks in the United States and a popular spot for outdoor recreation.

For centuries, Creek Indians collected the spring water for its healing qualities, and during the 1800s, the area was a bustling resort town. Today, visitors can still sample the spring water flowing inside the stone Spring House built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression.

Park guests can enjoy wading in Sandy Creek or swimming in McIntosh Lake, named for Creek Chief William McIntosh who signed an illegal treaty deeding Indian land to Georgia in 1825. A small museum, open seasonally, highlights Creek Indians, the resort era and CCC history. Cottages and campsites may be reserved for overnight stays.

Parking is $5 per vehicle. Office hours are from 8:00am - 5:00pm daily. Park gates open at 7:00am and close at sunset daily.

  • Off the beaten path. Camp sites are a mixture of large for motorhomes to small for tents and small campers. This place has a great history. I look forward to getting back there soon.  more »

  • This park is very well maintained. It's quiet and peaceful. Outside this park are some quaint little shops and beautiful gardens to walk around and explore the beauty of Georgia.  more »
  • Been here when I was younger and now that I'm older I can enjoy the memories and the amount of history and nature of this park. The visitors center is an old & beautiful building. The park rangers are all very friendly and they take good care of the park! (You all rock). I walked all over the park and loved every step. The two trails this park has are something to admire. I'll probably visit this park more and maybe take on some camping.
  • This was a really nice park. I loved the layout and the views are amazing. I liked that the cabins were heated and it made my stay very comfortable. I loved walking some of the trails. I was there for a Nero larping event and had a lot of fun walking the park during my down time.
  • Well kept secret. Beautiful park with facilities including stone made Pavilion, camp sites, group shelter, small lake and pleasant park personnel. Loads of history.
  • This park has always been a simple place to get back to nature. Nothing exciting, but picturesque and serene. Now they are transitioning into some type of retreat/conference center. I'm personally not a fan, but maybe it will help get more visitors.
  • Clean bathrooms and ample parking. No signs indicating if the museum was open or closed down. Would be a nice place for a summer picnic.
