    Thank You for listing this spring the waters taste is exceptional and it comes out cold. I have been coming to this spring for almost a year now. The owner is very friendly and he says as long as the water is flowing people are welcome to it.

    • Shari Wagner says:

      I’m thinking of visiting this spring for the first time this week. Do you happen to know if it’s been tested? I was using a great-tasting spring up in NH for a year before I learned it had high levels of naturally occurring arsenic.

  9. Freddiemema says:

    I absolutly love this place, would love to pitch a tent and stay here….

    what’s the best way to ask the owner if it’s okay to collect water from their spring? we drove pass the house (at least i think it was the right one) a month ago and didn’t want to knock on a strangers door asking for water-goodness. has anyone spoken with the owner and how did you go about it?

  11. Atomrogers says:

    i just drove by tonight around 7pm and filled a jug full, the dogs are friendly and the owners gave me a thumbs up to take some from inside their living room window!

  12. Guest says:

    Does anyone wonder how the water flows if it is 31 Fahrenheith? That is below freezing point of water!

    • jyrhino says:

      32′ F is the freezing point of pure distilled water at sealevel. Any contaminants (salt, iron, phosphorus, sulfur, etc.) change the boiling and freezing points. Pressure can keep it from freezing – in the oceans salt water has been found to be way below 0F, -132F in Antarctica. Also – water has a specific heat that helps it have multiple freezing points – there’s areas in pressure/temp that water can be liquid, gas, or solid, depending on conditions. Water – the coolest thing in the universe – the jack off all trades!

  13. John says:

    I was out there today. A company named Overland Development has taken pver the land there for the purposes of strip mining the whole landscape. Horrible. THe spring is no longer there. No pipes np water. nothing. The grass and brush is 3 ft high. Maybe I had the wrong side of the road but according to this photo and pinpoint, I was in the right place. I will ask the neighbors tomorrow what happened but I can already guess- the greedy land developers have capped it and cemented the springs. I will start complaining to the county and sending a letter a week to as many local and state politicians as I can. Anyone in the area care to join me?

  14. Pam says:

    I live in Bentonville (JOHN), what can I do to help?

  15. Ryan says:

    Any updates on this spring? I am close by so I may drive by. Hopefully it is not gone!

  16. Sonny Jones says:

    The actual address is 12590 Cross Hollow Road, not 12059. Hopefully this helps you find it a little easier.

    • David Fitch says:

      Does anyone know if this water has been tested for contaminents, pH, or whatever? I would guess you’d want to run this thru a filter such as a Berkey filter before consuming. If anyone has any idea please help, we’d like to use for someone who is sick and want to provide the purest possible water. Thank you!

  17. Shari Wagner says:

    I would like to know also. I just moved to the area and need a water source.

  18. Shari Wagner says:

    Also, if the real address is 12590 Cross Hollow Road, can the website please be updated?

  19. Arkansas Jones says:

    Clearing up some confusion here: The Wautauga Spring is in Ravenden, in NE Arkansas. THIS one is at 12590 Cross Hollow Rd. in Rogers, NW AR. The friendly owner believes the water is meant to be shared freely. He asks that folks back off the road into the driveway, and visit from 8 – 5 only. The 52 degree (not 32!) water is tested twice a year. This water, friends and neighbors, is as good as it gets. Please respect the resource, the property, and the owner’s generosity.

  20. Shari Wagner says:

    I spoke to the owner yesterday and he said the same water comes out of all his taps and that his wife (a microbiologist) tests the water twice a year. Good to know I can stop putting Lugol’s in my spring water…I get water there about once a week and it’s all I drink 🙂

  21. PATRICK says:

    Does anyone know what material the pipe is made of? I’m going to be traveling to the area soon and am interested in visiting this spring.

  22. Shawn says:

    What do I use to fill up the water? Just learning about this now.

  23. Anastasia says:

    Just got some water today, the spring is still there and the property owner is very friendly! Bring your own containers – it’s a faucet outside the fence and the creek runs through the fence as well. So lucky to have this in Northwest Arkansas!

  24. Brenda says:

    I wanted to know if this spring is still open to the public, since the most recent posts were written in 2014. If so, should a person ask/tell the owner they have come to get water, or just get the water. I would definitely want to go about this in the proper manner.

    Just filled up two “Arrow H2O 2.5-Gal Slimline Beverage Dispenser, Blue” at the address 12590 Cross Hollow Spring, Rogers, AR. The Walmart in Rogers for has a rollback on these 2.5-Gal jugs for $6.38/each. I first pulled up to the house after seeing the address on the mailbox, and parked on the side of the road near his garage. I was nervous and paced around his lawn outside the fence eyeballing the constant, dripping faucet for about a minute before his two short dogs [one a beagle and the other a mixed breed(?)] ran under his ‘knee-high’ fence to me and begged for ear rubs. This eased my fidgeting and I proceeded to, for unknown reasons, tip-toe to the dripping faucet. As I finished filling the first jug, the owner came out and I just about ran, but he reassured me that everything was fine and to make sure to just “park in his driveway behind his car” because people come down the dirt road hill really fast and could possibly hit my car. He added, “I’ll let you know if you need to move if I need to pull out my driveway,” and then went back into his house. This made me feel better about the situation, and I finished my last jug, closed the faucet tightly, and gave the dogs one last ear rub before they ran back under the short fence to drink the flowing creek spring water that nestles the side of the house up to the faucet. Note: If facing the house, the faucet is right in front of the fence, on the left side next to the flowing creek. The faucet handle is adorned with an image of a half moon and half sun.

  26. Heather says:

    Also confirming this spring water source – it is absolutely 12590 – a bit further east down the road than the pin on the map. April’s description from March 2016 is absolutely correct. Didn’t see the owner or dogs, but it was fairly clear this spring is intended for the public. You can actually smell the fresh mint growing near the small flowing stream! Lovely. A true gift in this industrial region.

  27. Rose says:

    Delicious water and an idyllic location. The owner(s) was not present when we arrived on a weekday afternoon but we filled up about 8 gallons. It is a beautiful property and so nice of the owners to allow public access.

  28. Charlotte says:

    Such a beautiful little place! Friendly owners, a sweet kitty that loves to come say hi when you’re gathering your water, and fresh, cool, clean water.

  29. Dolores says:

    This Spring Has Been Tested per Sunny [the owner] by his Wife who is a Microbiologist or something similar. Her lab tests show no harmful bacteria .. when you see Sunny ask him, he’s a great guy.

  30. Kathy says:

    I have spoken with Sonny, the owner of this spring. Friendly guy. He said it supplies all the water to his house. Their family drinks it daily. I have tasted it myself. It is cool and refreshing on a hot summer day.
