Great diving spot with convenient parking (with a 4WD)
Water was mostly clear 5-10ft of visibility.
No wetsuit necessary as the water was around 88DEG.
Wellspring was really cool, lots of fish and found one 12-15lb channel cat under a crevice.
20-25ft deep, will be returning very soon

This is definitely one of the better spots on this side, we go here pretty often. The vis and depth ratings are correct. You usually see fish and turtles here. Some spots are better than others. The bottom is a mix of sand and clay and there are trees, pipes, tires, and natural items on the bottom. A shore entry can be made just a few hundred feet from the entrance to the road.

If anyone wants to give this spot a chance let me know.

That is where I first dove 20 some odd years ago. How far down the channel did you go before getting wet?
