During the 19th century, seven springs of mineral-enriched water attracted people to the community of Dixon Springs about 10 miles west of Golconda
. Today, those visiting the park may take a swim in its outdoor pool or simply soak up the relaxing atmosphere of the park's moss-covered boulders, craggy overhangs and rushing brook.
