The Great Outdoors

RV camping at the Indian Springs Campground offers easy access to all the recreational pursuits of the surrounding state park. Springwater revered for its healing qualities has been collected here for centuries. Visitors still flock here to sample the water that flows inside the stone-built Spring House, which was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression. Swimming, fishing, and boating are also available on McIntosh Lake, which is named for Creek Chief William McIntosh, who was responsible for signing an illegal treaty that deeded Native American land to Georgia in 1825.A short drive southeast of the campsites at Indian Springs Campground is the Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge, which sprawls across 35,000 acres of hardwood forests, wetlands, and beaver ponds. It was established in 1939 after much of the original forests had been cleared for farming and the continuous planing of cotton led to soil infertility. The forest has now been re-established, and the wildlife has returned, with endangered red-cockaded woodpeckers, white-tailed deer, and neotropical songbirds all spotted here.The Indian Springs Campground also makes a good base for visiting the Scull Shoals Experimental Forest, which sprawls across 4,500 acres on the edge of the Oconee National Forest. It has served as the site of silvicultural research studies since the 1930s and is home to the ruins of Scull Shoals, a former textile and mill town that was first settled in 1784. Visitors to the forest can see the remains of the town, which was largely destroyed by a devastating flood in 1887, then hit the hiking trails of the adjacent Oconee National Forest.

Exploring the City

Campsites at the Indian Springs Campground are just ten minutes' drive from Flovilla, where you’ll find a small general store and a gas station if you need to fill up your RV rental. Alternatively, Jackson is also just ten minutes' drive away and has a wider choice of services, including plenty of fast-food restaurants and eateries if you want to dine out.While visiting the region, be sure to stop in at the nearby Dauset Trails Nature Center, an environmental education and outdoor recreation hub. It’s home to more than a dozen native animals, such as bobcats and otters that have been rescued and cannot be returned to the wild, as well as a 19th-century inspired farm exhibit where you can get up close to friendly cows, donkeys, and goats. Witness live reptiles that are native to Georgia in the Wonder Room, then stretch your legs on the Woodland Garden Trail or one of the more challenging hiking routes.Camp in an RV near Flovilla and spend a day exploring the sights of the Georgia capital, Atlanta, which is around an hour’s drive away. Head to the Atlanta History Center to learn about the role Atlanta played in both the Civil War and the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, then learn about the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. at his namesake National Historic Site. Other sights not to miss include the leafy green space of Piedmont Park and the huge Georgia Aquarium, which is the largest indoor aquarium in the Western Hemisphere.The Indian Springs Campground can also be used as a base for visiting Athens, which marks the start of Georgia’s Antebellum Trail. Admire its heritage-listed residences, such as the Greek Revival-style Taylor Grady House and the historic T.R.R. Cobb House, which houses a museum detailing the history of the Southern region. Athens is also renowned for its football culture, and a game day spent tailgating and soaking up the atmosphere is a “must” for sports fans.Whether you want to sip the healing waters of Indian Springs or discover the museums and mansions of Athens and Atlanta, book an RV in Butts County and start planning your next vacation.


Whether you’re on or off the grid, you have options when it comes to powering your RV. Here are the pros and cons for each.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
