Alley Spring is the 7th largest spring in Missouri. The water maintains a temperature of 57 degrees year round. Rainfall and runoff entering sinkholes 15 miles to the northwest has been determined to enter a labyrinth of cave passageways formed in dissolved dolomite (a type of limestone) and eventually empties into Alley Spring.
