General Information

Magnolia Springs.
Copyright: - Georgia State Parks
Magnolia Springs.
Description - Magnolia Springs State Park is known for its crystal clear springs that flow at an estimated 9 million gallons of water per day. During the Civil War, the site was called Camp Lawton and was used as a prison because of the natural springs. Remnants of the 10,000-prisoner camp can still be found, and two huge timbers recovered from the stream remind visitors of the prison walls.

During warmer months, young visitors delight in playing in the three playgrounds or watching for alligators and other wildlife along the natural spring interpretive boardwalk. Visitors will also enjoy the freshwater aquarium, swimming pool and historic exhibits. This 1071 acre park offers 26 tent, trailer and RV campsites, 85 capacity group camp, six cottages, three group shelters, and eight picnic shelters.

Recreation - Magnolia Springs State Park is a great place for camping, picnicking, hiking, swimming, fishing, and boating activities. Magnolia Springs has an accessible dock and ramp and fishing boat and canoe rental are available.

Climate - Georgia generally experiences mild, comfortable winters and warm to hot, humid summers. The area can offer a relatively warm escape for snow-free outdoor recreation during the winter months. Be prepared for occasional cold weather during the winter, especially at the higher elevations in northern Georgia.

Location - Magnolia Springs State Park is located inland just south of Augusta in the Coastal Region of eastern Georgia. The park is found five miles north of Millen on U.S. Hwy. 25.
