JailBird Springs is a low volume spring, about a 5th magnatude, recently formed by Momma Nature, and it feeds Juniper Creek. It was located by Mark & Peggy of The JailBirds, during a recent outing down Juniper Run.

To find this spring, proceed to the Juniper Springs Campground on Hgwy 40, a few miles west of Hgwy 19. Admission into the park is about $5. Canoe rentals are available for a fee. You can also arrange a shuttle pick up from the take out point on Hgwy 19, back to the campground, for about $6. When I make this paddle, I enter the campground, pay the entrance fee, go to the concession stand, pay the shuttle fee, drop off my boat and drive to the take out point. The shuttle picks me up there, bringing me back to my boat. This way, when I finish the 7 to 8 mile paddle, and I am sore and smelly, my truck is waiting for me.
