Magnolia Springs State Park

Nine Million Gallon per Day Magnolia Springs


Description:

Magnolia Springs State Park is known for its crystal-clear springs flowing 7 to 9 million gallons of water per day and the beautiful boardwalk which spans the cool water. During warmer months, visitors may watch for alligators, turtles and other wildlife near the springs. A 28-acre lake with accessible dock is available for fishing and boating. Numerous picnic shelters and tables are perfect locations for family reunions and birthday parties. During the Civil War, the site was called Camp Lawton and served as "the world's largest prison." Today, little remains of the prison stockade; however, the earthen breastworks which guarded it may still be seen.

There are several trails in the park including Beaver Trail and Woodpecker Woods Nature Trail. Beaver Trail is 2.3 miles long and features a nice view of the lake.
