Create an itinerary including Indian Springs State Park
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.

  • We camped at this delightful state park in February. The campground is located quite far into the park so just keep driving. That being said, there’s a lot of neat things to do and see between the entrance and campground. You could spend several days here playing mini golf, kayaking, biking, hiking, exploring the cemetery... You can even find other state parks within a few miles. We joined the line at the spring to get a gallon of water to take with us. It was nice to reuse a bottle and meet the people who drink the water regularly. They told us that we should allow the water to sit for a few days to allow the sulfur to dissipate. I liked the water better than my mother’s tap water so try it., but not right away. I’m sure this park is busier in the summer so reserve ahead of time.
  • Wonderful place to go to for natural spring water. You have to pay a parking fee of $5. The hours vary, so don't depend on Google posted hours. You can get water as long as you are there before sunset. At that time, the ranger locks the gate to the sheltered water spigot. Beautiful scenery. Received 4 stars because the last time we were there the ranger was not very friendly. Plan time to visit the waterfront and enjoy the water cascading over the rocks. be careful because it is very slippery. Many pavilions to reserve for your enjoyment.
