**Question from Admin – Is this accessible to people for drinking water?**  Anyone who knows please post a comment!

Big Springs is one of the headwaters of the Snake River. Located in Island Park, Idaho, this large springs gushes forth large volumes of crystal clear water. Big Springs is known for two things. First, the large trout that are visible from the bridge. Visitor love to feed the fish. Second, for Johnny Sacks cabin.

One hundred and twenty million gallons of pure water a day — enough to meet the water needs of a million people — surge out of the ground here. A short distance from the glassy pool is a bridge. Toss bread crumbs into the water from it, and you’ll see that constant flow (at a year-round temperature of 52 degrees) and the clean gravel bottom make for perfect trout habitat.
