Portions of the following information were taken from Florida Geological Survey Bulletin 66.

From the boat landing in the Suwannee River State Park, cross over the wooden bridge and follow to the riverside trail and the spring is on the left, approximately 250 feet west of the boat landing.

Description - Lime Spring, also known as Little Gem, forms an oval pool that measures 13 ft by 16 ft. Depth of the pool is 12 ft. The spring flow was reversed during the November 2002 visit and water was siphoning into the vent. The river water flowing into the siphon was tannic. Duckweed was present on the pool surface. Limestone bluffs rise approximately 25 ft above the pool to an access trail. Wooden steps lead down the eastern bank of the spring pool. Grasses, shrubs, and mixed hardwoods sparsely cover the surrounding hillside. Behind the trail above the spring the hardwood forest becomes denser. The spring is located within the Suwannee River State Park.
