Unfortunately the weather wasn’t the best when we stayed here. I want to go back in the summer and hike the long trail. When we arrived there was obviously an event going on. The small town along the front of Indian Springs State Park seems to be very in tune with the park. There is an event center, excellent restaurant and small gas/grocery right by the entrance. The campground was full even though it was February, which once again speaks to the community and residents. Not the most private sites but they are roomy. I was way to close to the playground. Screaming children are annoying… I’m not referring to yelling and cavorting. These were squalling, screeching hellions with no regard to others around them. One even made a rush at my dogs as I was walking by :( Not much view but you are above some water. No trail near the campground unfortunately. I did not use the showerhouse, it was conveniently located, but was the only one so I’m sure it gets busy.
We enjoyed the nature trail but skipped the longer more difficult trail due to incoming weather. Saw some deer, not much else. Not a well marked trail but we figured it out. I saw people headed to the spring with empty containers and the falls or cascades, were very beautiful.
Traveling across Georgia from NC to visit family in MO, we thought we would stay overnight at a state park. Well GA in all is wisdom has the asinine rule that you must stay two nights even if the park is virtually empty so we were left scrambling to find a nice place to camp. Scenic Mountain is a little gem. A little off the beaten track but easy to find, great roads, super friendly staff, facilities for dogs, and even some short walking trails in the woods. Level sites, fire pits and a nice club house.
We had a great time at this park - we had adjacent spots with freinds in spot 32 and shared a big grassy area between us. The campground was very clean and the lots in the loop we were on (23-34) we very big and was pretty quiet. The other lots were smaller but a little more wooded. The bath house by us was newer than the others and was very clean. The visitor center had very basic needs and the museum was very eduational about the area, and the staff was very friendly and helpful at both. We got the kayaks out on the lake and paddled a couple miles plus there are playgrounds all over for the kids to enjoy. With this being an hour out of ATL we can see this becoming a regular stop. Next visit we will check out Dauset nature center.
We were on our own little adventure to see ghosts! We were trying to find a place that was close to the old state mental hospital and we came across this little gem of a place. We were greeted in the southern fashion like we were old friends! Site was level and had everything we needed. Yes neighbors were close but everyone was enjoying their families. Hiked the trails around the ponds and caught a few bass. Would recommend staying here if you want a place that is quiet!
We reserved a spot yet you pick it when you get there. Georgia is changing that where you can book site specific. We drove through the loops & picked Site #81. It was big, private, on the end with water, electric & cable. There is spring water people come there & collect drinking water. I loved this campground when we were there it was so quiet maybe 2 other campers in the entire loop. We were there in mid June. We had so many lightening bugs after sunset it was amazing.
We kayaked the lake you can fish on the lake too. We were the only ones out there, how relaxing!
High Falls state park is up the road we drove to it & walked around, checked out the camping. I like Indian springs state park better. The pool at High Springs was a zoo, tons of kids & loud. If you're younger with Kids High Springs might be better for you. We hiked along the river to the real falls it was beautiful. We picked up peaches and boiled peanuts near High Falls state park in the Dollar General parking lot. they were the best.
We took a back road coming back from Ingles grocery store & came up on the Dauset trail visitor center it was amazing. There were lots of rescued animals there. Bear, mountain lion, beaver, Bison, Deer, Owls, Eagle, Hawks & more. Beautiful gardens & trails.
We went to the Jarrell Plantation that was really cool.
There is a old grave yard in the park that has so many headstones with just a first name or initials. Some families and doctors and others , dating back to 1830
Loved the campground! Large spacious sites and lots of shade. The lake is so serene, lots of picnic areas and day use spaces. Area to play in the river was great with the hot weather. Bathrooms are clean. Friendly staff. Our golden retrievers enjoyed it to. Will be back again.
