The reservoir before you taps into the famous Scott Spring. The original outlet emanates from the base of a steep rock hill to the east. The refreshing water of Scott Spring offered abundant drinking water to many travelers on the Oregon Trail and became an inviting camp site on their long journey. The spring currently waters livestock and feeds Rock Creek just as it did so many years ago.
