Drink From a Cave

Drink from a cave and swim in a spring-fed pool in the shape of Georgia

If you’re looking for a small town where time seems to have slowed down, you’ll find it in Cave Spring, Georgia just 5 miles from the Alabama border. People come here to fish Big Cedar Creek, stroll the quaint main street and of course to visit Rolater Park home to the natural spring that gives the town its name.  

According to the Rolater park website,"the spring produces 2 million gallons a day of the purest, best-tasting water you're likely to find anywhere. People from miles around come to fill jugs and take home the award-winning water." My family tried it, and we agree!

In addition to filling up your jug, make sure you check out the cave (open seasonally). The entrance fee is $2 per person (cash). As always, make sure to check the website before going for the most up-to-date information.

In Rolater Park you will also find a 1.5 acre spring fed mineral water pool in the shape of Georgia! I haven't taken a plunge here yet but I hear it is quite refreshing (read: chilly). I did, however enjoy wading in the spring that leads to the pool. This is a great spot for little ones to splash around!

If you go, make sure to save some time to check out the small town as there is a lot of history here and, I just got a tip that Martha Jane's fudge shop cannot be missed!

Please Note: The pool is only open in the summer but the cave is open from April-September. As always, just a reminder to do your own research, like checking opening hours, etc before any adventure!

Hi, thanks for stopping by!

Hi, I'm Kerry!


I have lived in Georgia for over 10 years and love to share local spots, art, history, nature and more within 3 hours of Atlanta (and easy getaways from the Peach State). 

I am glad you're here and I am looking forward to growing our backyard bucketlist together!

Let the posts
come to you.
