LABOR DAY POOL NOTICE: The pool will have a 25-person limit for Labor Day weekend due to limited lifeguard staff. Although the pool will close for the season after Labor Day, the park's Splash Pad will remain open until October 1. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Beautiful Magnolia Springs State Park is known for its crystal clear springs flowing 7 million gallons per day. A boardwalk spans the cool water, allowing visitors to look for alligators, turtles and other wildlife near the springs. A small lake is available for fishing. Overnight guests can choose from cottages and a campground. Magnolia Springs State Park is part of the Muddy Spokes Club, encouraging bikers to finish a 3-mile loop and work toward earning a members-only t-shirt.
During the Civil War, this site was called Camp Lawton and served as “the world’s largest prison.” Today, little remains of the prison stockade; however, the earthen breastworks which guarded it may still be seen. During 2010, Georgia Southern University archaeology teams uncovered the stockade wall and numerous personal articles from soldiers.  Their discovery has been heralded as one of the most significant finds in recent history.  Artifacts are currently on display at the university.
