    Hi am looking for a springs I can get spring water to drink. Where would that be or is it illegal? Thank You Judy

    My grandparents have lived on this river their whole life and their parents before them, I have never tried to get drinking water from it before but I will try next time I visit and update everyone! The water is crystal clear and motor boats aren’t allow at the head spring, which is good for pollution! I’ll try to fill up some jugs and come back with a response!

    How do I know if the water from this spring is not contaminated with industrial run off?

    It is illegal to take anything out of a state park. If you get caught there are fines. Of course hunting and fishing allowed with permit.
