One of the most photographed mills in the Ozarks.
Caught it one time with a thick fog over the spring.
Very cool place !!!

Hesitate to write another review, but just visited again taking some family to this site. Alley Springs is a picturesque historic site. It is worth a trip there just to see it. But, once their you will have a hard time choosing what to do in the area. Choices seem unliimited.

The historic mill is nestled along Spring creek and is a beautiful sitting which the trail loops through. Also their is another short trail that give you a great overlook to the Mill. For fee camping is less than mile away and Jack's Fork river is great for floating.
