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 hiked this trail on 1/1/2023. We really enjoyed this trail! It was well kept and as pups, it was easy on our paws! There are many bikers who go to this location though, so be aware! As pups, this was a little scary! There are also a couple of bridges, and it was a little wet today. This made the bridges quite slick and Mom slipped twice! Mom and Dad really enjoyed this trail though and we will definitely be returning at some point!
  • Wonderful park! Do need a day pass Dogs are allowed with a 6ft leash Camping and boating allowed Beautiful historic buildings to walk around. Had tons of picnic benches and bathrooms. Lots of open space for people to activities. Great for kids every age with 2 playgrounds.
  • Hiking trail is off to the side of the entrance of the park. I enjoyed the hike and the water along the way. Such a cute little state park. It’s a multi-use trail so you’ll walk by lodging along the trail. The trail leads to the nature center, no summit nor scenic ending, but the hike is nice despite being an out n back. The views are along the hike. Don’t underestimate the trail though! The elevation and hills came with its challenges. Overall- I loved it. I will be back.
  • I normally go 2x per months for the spring water and to enjoy the sounds of the beautiful water. I save several jugs to use to fill it. There’s a $5 donation to get in for parking. I’ve seen weddings, photo shots and all around family fun. Towards the back of the park there’s a camp ground community. I would recommend the outdoor fun state park.
  • 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.
