Indian Springs State Park, Flovilla

(4.1/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Be aware of a $5 parking fee (unless you are a season Parking Pass holder). Nice views, peaceful location. Several interesting amenities including a beach?, mini golf, camping etc.
  • This is possibly my favorite park. The facilities are amazing, although they have taken a long time to get up to modern specs. The hiking trail is wonderful, well marked, and one of the best in the state. I have, on occasion, had issues with a couple of Rangers who were more rude than their job required. As a person who frequents these parks multiple times a month, I appreciate the hard work. I have in fact volunteered more than a few times with my family and however these guys (there are two that come to mind) seem to think they have to be harsh and disrespectful to people to get things done. Sad, because otherwise this would be 5 stars! However, I still visit this park and would recommend it!
  • Love Indian Springs. It is a unique park with amazing stone filled streams, Stone buildings, and the world famous springs. Great camping and lake. Group camp is amazing.
  • Good place for an outting/picnic. Great view. Park for kids to play.
  • Such a beautiful location!! The grounds are very well maintained with great trails, and lots of wildlife (plus hidden gems for photographers). We went for the full experience and camped out in a back lot. The experience was in a word, AWESOME. Nobody bothered us, the groundskeeper kept an eye on everything without being worrisome, and the insects weren't overwhelming. Take a few days, visit this place and get back to nature.
