Also called Guaranto Springs, Gornto Springs is owned by Dixie County. It is a pleasant 2nd magnitude spring just perfect for picnicking.

Steps lead to the spring from both sides, and there is a platform on the south side that extends to provide a view of the vent. The water is clear and blue over the vent, and 10 feet deep. There is a parking area on the south side of the spring, and a picnic shelter on the north side.
