|Summary of Features
From the junction of U.S. 27/19 and U.S. 98 in Perry, drive west on U.S. 98 for 2.55 miles. Turn right (north) at sign for Hunter Creek development and proceed just under a mile to the bridge over Spring Creek. The spring is near the bridge on the SE side.

The springs consist of two small boils near the SE corner of the bridge and bridge support. One boil was two feet in diameter, and the other (which was a few feet away) was one foot in diameter. On date of visit in February 2001, a time of historic drought, the boils were pronounced, raised, issued clear water, and easy to spot. The surrounding creek was very shallow, completely covered in hydrilla, and strewn with garbage. The boils were the only areas that were not covered in the aquatic vegetation. Turtles were sunning themselves near the vents.
- The only use of the site appears to be as a place to illegally dispose of garbage and refuse, including a deer carcass that was spilling out of a plastic trash bag. People apparently toss garbage out of their car windows as they pass over the bridge.
The two boils are points of mild interest in this otherwise unsightly and abused site.
