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