Details Join us for an easy, relaxing kayak trip around the beautiful 105 acre lake at GA's Indian Springs State Park. This family friendly trip is open to everyone, experienced or brand new to boating. Amazing birds nest on this lake, and kayaking is so quiet, you simply glide into view. This beautiful state park is located just south of Atlanta, and the lake is not accessible to boats with gas engines, so kayaking is a safe and pleasant joy. The boat ramp makes launching a kayak or canoe very easy. This particular state park only had flat bottom fishing boats for rent last summer, so if you want to kayak or canoe, you will have to bring your own boat. As this is a state park, there is a parking fee. $5.00 daily or I suggest you purchase an annual pass @ [url=]Ga State Park Indian Springs State Park Lake[/url meet me @ the boat ramp, unload, sign in, please move your car...

This is one of my favorite places to have a peaceful, easy paddle.

Conveniently located near I-75 just south of Atlanta, 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.
