Great place to visit very clean and friendly
This is the site of a lesser known confederate civil war prison. There was some archeological work going on when we were there. The spring is very pretty, with turtles and fish swimming under the bridges of the walkway, and there were lots of alligators along the stream. We let our dogs swim in the lake before we realized the gators were probably there as well. There is an aquarium for Georgia fish at the park. The campground is in tall pine trees with shade, but not much privacy. Most are level. Water and electric sites and a dump station.
Not much to do but the campground is quiet and clean, a good passing through place.
This state park has a beautiful natural spring that is home to aquatic turtles, fish and aligators. It has history as a prisoner of war camp for the civil war and you can see some of that natural history as you walk it's many trails. The knowledgeable rangers work hand in hand with the local college and it's students in archeology to uncover more and more of it's secrets. Here you can play on athe playground with its water splashpad, go down the slides, and walk around the stream looking for aligators (don't feed the aligators) There is birdwatching, kicking and canoeing or paddleboats if you prefer on the lake. You can primitive camp, use a tent or RV space with water and power or rent a cabin. The friends of the park and the rangers host many various activities to make your stay a memorable one. Enjoy!
Plenty of trails with birdwatching and animal watching including alligators. There is a beautiful natural spring and the site has a museum. Campground has spacious sites. Bath house is well maintained. There are several playgrounds and a splash pad for the kids. We usually try to get here two to three times a year.
This is our home park. We come for a night or a weekend and sometimes the week. It’s our get out of the house go to park. I love going to the spring and seeing the turtles. Or looking on the banks to see the alligator sunning. Magnolia has just rebuilt their fishing deck to make it wheelchair accessible. I took the trail in my powerchair and was able to go almost the whole trail. Their bathrooms are so clean. We love boating, so using your own boat or renting one of their paddle boats, kayaks or canoes is simple. You will love the friendliness of this park. For the day or for the week, come visit. They have monthly kids movies, and guided tours.
