Indian Springs State Park, Flovilla

#45 of 114 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.

  • Such a delightful little park with clean restroom facilities and a feeling of a "walk through time." We love taking pictures in front of the streams and natural rocks every time we drive through. Definitely worth going a little out of your way to visit this beautiful park.
  • Rented a cottage right on the lake for 3 days. Indian springs cottages are beautiful. We could sit on back porch and look at lake. Had an amazing 3 days. Great place for family or a get away like ours just my husband and me. Would recommend to anyone.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
