Indian Springs State Park, Flovilla

#47 of 74 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.

    When we went to the park there was no fishing and no swimming allowed. So that was a bummer. But the Springs was cool to see and drink from. Interesting little place for a quick visit to stretch your ...  more »

    I love this place for it's history and spring. Even someone stationed at the small museum. My son liked the dirt bike trail. Other than that there isn't much. Miniature golf is a little weathered.

    One weekend a month from Nov.-Jun. We come to this park for SOLAR events. The park itself is great. The few little shops at the entries are neat as well. The town its in not so much.

    I've been coming here for 32 years for a yearly family reunion. Not much has changed, the park is always clean, as well as the covered shelter we use yearly as well. In all the years of coming here, I've only seen the actual spring maybe once. The spring itself isnt all that spectacular. The park is nice though.

    I enjoyed a visit to this park when my good friend used it as a venue for his wedding. The cabins were clean, comfortable, inviting, and reasonably priced and afforded a lovely view of autumn leaves in the morning and evening.
