Hecla Junction Hot Springs?

Random question for Arkansas buzzards- Why is there a 'Browns Canyon Warm Springs' on the map right up the road from the Hecla Junction boat ramp? Definitely did not see anything warm and watery around there, but I didn't investigate too thoroughly.

There is a very small spring in the draw that comes down to the holding ponds above the boat ramp. It doesn't even flow when things get really dry and it's not very warm, just warm enough to keep from freezing in the winter. It's not listed on most maps.
