    Slow Flow but good water. 

  2. I was checking this site out and decided to see if a spring that I know about was listed. This is the spring that I was looking for, but the location seems to be off. This spring flows into Desmond Creek where it crosses Hill Road. It is just down from Rapid City Rd. on the south side. The location that you have states there is no parking lot, but indeed there is. it is a rest area along 72, while the correct spot indeed does not have more that a large dirt area. Latitude/Longitude: N44° 46.8365′, W85° 16.5111′

    The recharge area for this spring is to the south, as there is a noticeable rise in the terrain. The elevation there is about 710 ft. The creek starts not much to the south from the spring and may well emerge from below the surface at that point. I have not been back there. The elevation continues to climb to the south until it reaches 1,100 ft about 4,200 ft away. When I measured the flow, it was about 1 gal/minute (magnitude 7).

    As I said, this spring does exist and fits the description of the nearby creek, parking and the picture matches. I hope this updated information helps.
