The single vent opening on the west end of the pool runs down into the bank to a line of sight depth of 10 ft (3 m). The small spring pool has a 15 ft (4.6 m) diameter. Limestone is exposed around the pool and sand covers the bottom. The water is clear and greenish. Algae are prevalent on submerged surfaces.
Suwanacoochee Spring discharges from the base of 25 ft high banks along the river through the remains of a late 1800’s rock bath house intended to pool the water for swimming. The rock structure has rectangular window openings and has become disfigured with age. Both sides of the river have high forested banks with limestone overlain by sand. Cave divers report that Suwanacoochee and Ellaville Springs are connected by an extensive underwater cave system that extends underneath the Suwannee River bed.
The spring flows into the Withlacoochee River near its confluence with the Suwannee River, 13 miles (21 km) northwest of Live Oak. From the intersection with I-10 northwest of Live Oak, drive northwest on US 90 approximately 6 miles (9.7 km) to the Suwannee River. Cross over the river and turn north (right) on NE Drew Way. Follow the road to the Suwannee River State Park Picnic Area Annex. Follow the gated track in the picnic area southeast under the railroad trestle to the spring. Suwanacoochee Spring is situated on the southwest bank of the Withlacoochee River within view of the river’s confluence with the Suwannee River.
