1053 Magnolia Springs Drive, Millen Georgia 30442
This 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 the warmer months, young visitors delight in watching for alligators and other wildlife near the beautiful springs. A freshwater aquarium is also available.
Ofer 25 campsites and cottages are available. Swimming pool, playgrounds, group shelters, historic exhibits, nature trails, and bicycle trails are available.
