LAKE NOTICE: Lake McIntosh continues to experience low water levels while repairs to the dam are being made. The lake is far below full pool, which has caused the beach and boat ramp to close. Swimming and fishing is not available; however canoes and kayaks are permitted. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope that our guests will still enjoy our walking trails, picnic areas, spring house, camping and cabins. Visitors may also cool off in the creek shoals. Please call the park with any questions.

"Indian Springs State Park is one of the oldest state parks in the nation, drawing people to its mineral rich healing waters and tranquil natural setting, offering you a journey through time from its Creek Indian origins to the stone buildings built by the CCC."

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.
