    Does anyone know if you can fill up jugs at this spring? 

  4. Michele says:

    Entrance fee is now $5. I haven’t been here. Hoping someone who has been to the falls here can tell us if there is a place with easy access to fill up jugs — and whether that is even allowed. Knowing how the Texas State officials have been acting in other parts of Texas – not allowing parks with springs to allow people to drink the spring water – I doubt it is really allowed until and unless I hear otherwse.

      I absolutely adore this spring. The water is crisp, clear and way better than anything I have ever tried in my entire life in Orange, CA. After my first sip, I was convinced that I saw Allah and that he was calling me to jump into the waters of his love. So I did, but then a forest ranger said that whatever I was doing was “inappropriate” and “disgusting”. I informed him that his face was disgusting. Anyway, long story short, go to this spring!
