Overview Location & Specifics Conditions Resources Nearby Systems  
Portions of the following information were taken from Florida Geological Survey Bulletin 31.

Adams Spring is about 3.4 mi NW. of Ellaville and about 1 mi E. of the Withlacoochee River. From the junction of State Hwy 6 and State Hw 141, drive southwest on State Hwy 141 for 4.4 mi, turn west onto Corinth Church Road and drive for less than 2 mi to the end, turn south down dirt road a few tenths of a mile, turn west at old wood frame house and house trailer, continue down righthand road 0.7 mi to the spring.

Description The spring pool, kidney shaped, is 500 to 600 ft long and 200 to 250 ft wide. More than half the pool was covered with green algae at the time of visit. The banks are steep and land surface is about 15 to 20 ft above the water level. The entire area is heavily forested; trees grow around the perimeter and in the pool. There was no flow on the date visited and the bottom of the spring could not be seen through the murky brown water. Utilization Residents use the pool for swimming. A diving platform has been built at the north end.

8/4/2010 Guy Bryant ? Noticed that Adams Spring is listed as a cave dive. There is no cave nor cavern here. The water flows from some small fist sized openings on one side to a downstream entrance on the other. Years ago Lamar English and myself attempted to penetrate the downstream side with no mount technique....not possible....too small. I would change the listing of this site to open water.
