The spring forms a semicircular pool at the edge of the river. Thepool was about 50 feet wide on date of visit, and visibility in the waterunder winter and evening conditions (January 2001) was only about one foot.The pool is canopied by cypress and hardwoods, and the low area aroundthe spring is thick floodplain forest. No flow was visible.
- It appears that people occasionally camp or picnic at this site, as therewas garbage on the land near the spring. The spring may also be used forswimming, but is in a low and muddy area and is not appealing for thatpurpose.
- Besides being accessible from the Wanamake boat ramp described above, thespring is also just a few minutes’ paddle downstream of the boat ramp nearCampground and Trail Springs.
The spring is not dramatic in appearance and can be easy to miss, especiallywhen there is no visible flow. Look for the telltale circular pool. Thesite would likely be clearer on a sunny summer day.
