    This is good stuff. Better than most bottled water. Cold too

  4. Jenny says:

    I drank this water as a child and have started hauling water for my family from it again. Once you have had this water, no other water tastes quite right. Even my nine year old said, “Mommy, I used to not like to drink water but this water tastes GOOD!”

  5. Jamie says:

    How close is this place to Enid? Anyone have easy directions to find it? =\

    Thanks!!

  6. Jenny says:

    Jamie, the spring is a little over 2 hours from Enid. Take Hwy. 81 to Rush Springs and then go east at the flashing light on Hwy. 17/Blakely Ave. Continue on Blakely through town and over the railroad tracks. Jeff Davis Park will be on the north side of the road. The lane through the park goes directly by the spring.

    HI! I am wanting to contribute a few photos of a spring that is already listed, but has no photos yet. The spring is called Rush Springs in Rush Springs, OK. Please let me know how I can add these to the listing.

    Thank you!
