Spring is located in the southern extent of the Ponce de Leon Springs
State Recreation Area, just south of I-10. The spring is surrounded
by the low floodplain of Sandy Creek and can be difficult to locate
under average to high stage levels. Jackson Spring can be found at
the head of a 400-foot run in between the I-10 rest area and Sandy
Creek. The vent is currently covered with sediments; however, discharge
can still be observed issuing from several distinct sand boil groups.
