- Indian Springs State Park is considered one of the oldest state parks in the United States. 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. Many structures within the park were built during the Depression by members of the Civilian Conservation Corps.
