Located less than 10 minutes downstream of a group of seeps, springs, and cascades on the Withlacoochie River, Pot Spring is a circular basin that opens directly into the river on the east bank. Water flows strongly from a limestone cavity that was approximately 14 feet deep on the date of visit (river was low). The pool is approximately 40 feet across. The bottom of the pool is sandy, and the water is clear and blue when the river is low or at normal levels. A wooden platform is at the downstream end of the pool, with steps leading from it to a sand parking lot. Small fish inhabit the spring. The natural levee of the river rises on three sides of the spring to a height of 15-20 feet. The clear water of the spring contrasts the darker—sometimes much darker—water of the river.
- Directly across the river from the spring, on a bluff, is a rope spring. RB observed teenagers swimming across the river and swinging into the dark water.
- The steps seem to have been installed to help prevent erosion, which is evident at the spring.
- The authors were told (by sources whose reliability was not necessarily unimpeachable) the spring's name is derived from its popularity as place to smoke marijuana.
The spring is very attractive. The platform and boardwalk help prevent erosion and frame the site nicely.
