Welcome to Idlewilde Event Center at Indian Springs State Park


As part of an ongoing statewide effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites strongly encourages guests to practice social distancing and follow guidelines for hygiene while visiting the parks. View COVID-19 safety guidelines.

Conveniently located near I-75 in middle Georgia, Indian Springs is one of the oldest state parks in the United States and a popular spot for outdoor recreation.

Idlewilde Event Center at Indian Springs State Park is available for reservations. The name is derived from the majestic house on the property that serves as the park office and visitor center; and is on the National Historic Register. With another nod to past, the individual rooms in the center are even named after the historic hotels that once thrived in the village of Indian Springs. Idlewilde has 20,000 square feet of event space including a massive lake side porch with beautiful views of the water. With a capacity of 500 people, Idlewilde can accommodate a variety of events, from birthday parties and family reunions, to weddings and corporate retreats. Additional features include a catering kitchen and audio visual capabilities in every room.
