Indian Springs State Park, Flovilla

4.2
#50 of 94 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 »

  • I love going to Indian Springs to enjoy nature and play on the rocks in the river. There is a lake for fishing, areas to camp, a venue for weddings, putt putt and a playground. It makes a great back drop for photography as well.
  • Stayed one night passing through. Got in after dark with my large 5th wheel. Randy, camp host site 62, was very helpful in guiding me in to my site with the help of his golf cart lights. Was a very quiet evening with the exception of the rain. Campground wad very nice!
  • I love this place! I love it so much I moved within 5 miles of it. Picturesque scenery, and perfect for any mood or event.
  • Came down here to get water from the spring. Awesome place. Indian Springs State Park is a good place for a picnic when it's warm or just bringing the kids to play on the playground. And it's even great for single people who just want to get away from the city and take time for yourself reading a book.
  • 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.
