Fanning Spring is a borderline first -magnitude spring, with clear bluish water. The spring pool is about 207 feet by 144 feet, and the main funnel-shaped vent is about 20 feet deep. Several other small seeps create sand boils and trickle into the spring pool from limestone outcroppings on one end. This is a very popular spring for families, with shallow sandy areas, a floating dock, and a platform for jumping into the deepest water above the vent.
