Camp Seminole Spring is a 4th magnitude spring with a heart-shaped pool about 115 feet long by 90 feet wide and enclosed by a concrete wall. Clear water issues from a 4-foot-wide sand boil on the west side of the pool at the end of the dock. No boil was visible on the pool's surface. A working gristmill adjacent to the spring pool marks the outlet to the spring run, which flows toward the north about 0.2 mile to Orange Creek. A well is used to supplement the flow.
The property, spring pool, and gristmill were originally developed as a honeymoon resort in the 1970s and later purchased by the Girl Scouts for use as a camp. The property also has several other smaller springs in Orange Creek flowing from the hillside overlooking the creek's floodplain.
Camp Seminole Spring has been altered into a heart-shaped concrete pool 90 ft wide, 114 ft long, and 3 ft deep. Clear water issues from a 4 ft wide sand boil located next to a wooden dock on the west side of the pool. Green algae grows in the spring pool. Adjacent to the pool is a working gristmill which marks the head of the spring run. The run is 5 ft wide, 0.6 ft deep, and flows 0.2 miles north into Orange Creek. The original owners created a resort for honeymooners. The current owners use this property as a Girl Scout camp. The average discharge for 2000 was 0.79 ft3/s.
