Satsuma Spring is a low 3rd magnitude spring with a circular pool 22 feet in diameter. Clear, blue water discharges from a 5-foot-diameter opening in the bottom of the pool. A prominent boil is visible on the pool surface and there is a strong hydrogen sulfide odor. The sand bottom was covered with organic debris and algae. The spring run flows about 0.2 mile toward the northwest to the St. Johns River.
Satsuma Spring is located along the St. Johns River about 3.5 miles southwest of Satsuma and 3 miles north of Welaka. From the intersection of U.S. Highway 17 and State Road (SR) 309 in Satsuma, drive south on SR 309 for about 3 miles to the town of Nashua. Turn west (right) at Norton's Fish Camp Road in Nashua and drive 0.4 mile to the end of the road. The spring is about 400 feet from the east bank of the St. Johns River.
I was informed by a local neighbor that the spring is on property owned by a "CP Talyor", undergoing treatment for leukemia. I was told I could write (119 Norton's Fish Camp Road) or call to gain permission.
