Jan Stokes notes that Charlie Newcomer, Sr., built this hunting cabin on Spring Lake Creek in the early 1940s and it’s still in use today. Spring Lake Creek is a tributary of the Ocmulgee River near the Wilcox-Ben Hill County line and is fed by one of several springs in the area. I spent many holidays here in my youth swimming and exploring the surrounding woods. The spring-fed water was so cold that we cooled our watermelons in it. I made this photo in 1986.
