We just got back from a trip to Indian Springs State Park. We had a blast just my husband and I. We stayed in Cottage #9 and the lay out of the place is so nice and tranquil. The cottage is nestled near the trees and the lake can be seen from there as well. If you have kids, it's a great place to check out the springs and let them get wet. There is no swimming and there are signs posted. We did the hike, which is across the street; and it was great! We took back two gallons of the spring water, which is the limit; however, we saw people taking more than the two gallon limit. All-in-all, we had a wonderful time. We will return for another visit.

This quaint state park is a beautiful getaway with lots to do for campers of all ages (fishing, kayaking, putt-putt, paddle boats, etc). Most of the campsites were shaded with good spacing between most of them. Good access to the lake via public access areas. Although many sites are very close to the lake, there are no real open views of the lake due to the trees and underbrush. Tight access for big rigs but doable. ZERO AT&T cell signal unless you make your way to higher ground. Limited TV reception but free cable TV! 30 amp service only. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Bring an empty gallon jug and be sure to get some of the highly prized and famous spring water from the spring house!

We needed a stop over driving from Savannah to Atlanta, and this was a great place to do so. Tranquil and peaceful. They had a nice camping area, and even have a mini golf. We enjoyed the view of the lake and the whole park in general

The Park is small and there not much to see, unless you are biking / hiking to Dauset Trails, or camping and touring the area.

We did collect some of the famous mineral water. There was a queue of people filling large containers. The sign says limit of 2 gallons a fill, but people were filing 5 gallons or more each, so we just got in line and waited our turn filling our two gallon size containers. The water smells and tastes heavily of Sulphur (rotten eggs) that even after a week of sitting was still present, but a little less strong. The water may have good and healing properties but its very much an acquired taste. Collecting the water seems very popular and we were told its always busy, so be prepared to wait in line a while to fill your containers and its locked at night.

So, we do not live far from this and I wanted to hit this one since it’s close. It’s great!! The trail... 3 miles one way, be prepared to work up a sweat! It’s so worth it...it felt amazing to walk through the woods and breath in the fresh air! The falls are beautiful and the rocks are too! Clean restrooms & the lady in the visitors center was so sweet!! We played putt-putt after our hike and had a blast! It’s worth it!!!

This state park sits right off the main drag in beautiful Flovilla. Once part of the Cherokee lands, this park is rife with history as well as natural beauty. Now part of the GA State Parks system, this park’s resources now include CCC stone building throughout which serve to highlight the healing waters popular over the last two centuries. The lines for the water, even on Christmas Day, were surprising, especially given the sulphuric after taste of the Spring; however, the locals we spoke with swore by it - and they brought all manner of containers to fill their little wagons and handcarts. Must be something to it! Fantastic and beautiful park - definitely recommend!

We spent the weekend here on our way to North Georgia mountains. Great park with lots of nice quiet spacious parking spots. We had a full hook up spot (#6) and enjoyed the park immensely. Not a lot to do in the immediate area but since we went there to relax and get away, it was perfect. The water provides plenty of activities for those so inclined and we spent considerable time just walking around the park saying hello to people and enjoying the peacefulness. They provide sowers and restrooms though we did not need either and the store has a little of everything one might need. This was the first state park we have been to that had putt putt golf for the guests The park has a museum and some other small local attractions that will keep you busy if you are so inclined also. The staff were pleasant and helpful and were just plain fun to talk to. When we woke up this morning, we could smell bacon, sausage, eggs and coffee throughout the park. What a way to end the weekend. We had no issues with cellular connection and were able to stream on Verizon. Then we read they had cable and saw the hookup but we never used it. The over the air TV reception was minimal but since we were streaming, it did not bother us.

We needed a break and this fit the bill. It is a very old state park on what was Indian land. There is a spring in a building built by the CCC. Locals were lined up to fill their jugs. We passed on that. We spent 2 nights in Cabin 6. We had a beautiful view of the lake. This cabin is pet friendly so we had our little dog with us. The cabin was very clean as was the whole park. Cabin had 2 bedrooms, small kitchen, dining and living room area and 1 bath. There were 2 tvs. There was a screened in porch, a fire pit and a picnic table. We brought all our food because there is nothing near by. There were plenty of plates etc. There was a wood burning fireplace and there was an odor from past fire. We didn't use it because it was very hot. The cabin to get if you don't have a pet would be 10. It is on a point overlooking the lake. Park has mini golf, playground, picnic area , camping and an event center. We did walk part of the multi use trail. It was nice with some good lake views and wild flowers. The trail head is right outside the park entrance. You can walk to Dauset Trails nature Center.

The sulphur springs area was closed and dry. I assume due to covid. We were there during week and the little Indian village is mostly closed except for weekends. Nice little river off from park that children were playing in.
