Indian Springs State Park

Added by camprate admin

1 review

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.

Summary:

Rude State staff

Date:

September 5, 2012


The staff especially the rangers and DNR staff are rude. They will charge you just to ride through to see if you like the campground and just generally don't care if you come there or not. If you go a few miles away to High Falls State park you will have a much friendlier State staff. Unless the Chief ranger cleans up his staff and the campground its going to continue to go down. They only keep one loop open until it fills up which puts campers right on top of each other when there is no need to be. I camp here because it is close but generally I end up at high falls even though I like the Indian Springs park better.
I have never had a problem once camping but just when I am looking for a site. I have dome the same thing at alot of state parks with no problem. If you show up and see a heavyset lady at the boot or a attractive female Ranger be prepared they are rude.
