"Magnolia Springs State Park is known for its crystal-clear springs from which seven to nine million gallons of water flow each day into the lake systems of the park. A boardwalk spans this crisp, cool water. The reliable water source led the Confederate Army to use this site during the Civil War as a prison camp for nearly 40,000 Union soldiers. The earthen breastworks of Fort Lawton, built to defend the prison stockade, can still be seen by park visitors. Archaeological surveys are underway, and a museum in Group Shelter 1 contains information on Camp Lawton. Nearby is the Millen National Fish Hatchery, which is no longer operational, but Bo Ginn Aquarium is operated by the park and is a must-see during your visit here. The aquarium is open 9 AM to 4 PM daily and displays numerous native fish species."
