About: 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.

Magnolia Springs State Park is part of both the Park Paddlers Club and the Muddy Spokes Club. Paddlers who explore the small lake and bikers who finish the park’s 3-mile loop can work toward earning members-only t-shirts.

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.
