Located off I-75 in middle Georgia, Indian Springs is thought to be the oldest state park in the nation. It was acquired by the state in 1825 and became an official "State Forest Park" in 1927. The Creek Indians used the springs for centuries to heal the sick and impart extra vigor to the well. During the 1800s, the area was a bustling resort town. Today, visitors can still sample the spring water while enjoying the park?s cottages, camping, swimming, fishing and boating. Many structures within the park, such as the spring house, were built during the Great Depression by members of FDR?s Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). A museum (hours limited) highlights Creek Indians, the resort era and CCC history.




Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
May 29 My Favorite State Park! by Happy Camper
I have visited this park since 1995, and it remains my favorite state park in Georgia. It is a fun family get-a-way, not too far outside of Atlanta, and provides visitors with a variety of activities such as swimming, mini golf, boating, fishing, picnicking, hiking, camping ... just to name a few. It is close to Dauset Trails, which is also a great place to commune with nature. Highly recommend this park! Easily accessible and fun for all ages!

My granddaughter had her wedding there on Oct 27,2017. Yes, the area is beautiful. We were charged almost $900.00 to the area of the wedding. We had to put up and take down all chairs and tables. Then full clean up. On top of that the park charged $5.00 per car coming to the wedding. After that very high amount,us having to do everythin, the parking fee should have been included . There were approximate 70 people at the wedding from Georgia and Florida...that is 70 people that will never be back to this park
September 5 My favorite park
Been going to Indian Springs since 1956 still camp there on every occasion I get. I would like to see it expanded with more camping area or camping area #1 brought up to the condition of area #2. The people there are great keep up the good work. Eddie Mathews Thomaston, Ga
