Moccasin Springs is a 4th magnitude spring that flows from several sand boils into a large pool about 40 feet long and 30 feet wide. The spring run flows toward the east to Black Water Creek through dense forests of hardwoods, palms, and palmettos.
Moccasin Springs is located in the Seminole State Forest about 3.5 miles southeast of Cassia. From the south entrance of Seminole State Forest on State Road 46 (about 0.4 mile west of the Wekiva River), turn north and drive past the stop sign, through the gate, and cross the bridge over Black Water Creek. Drive about 0.2 mile from the bridge to the next intersection. Turn to the left and go toward the southwest for 0.5 mile, veer left and drive another 0.2 mile, then veer left onto Moccasin Camp Road and park at the end of the road near the tree line. Walk about 300 feet toward the south-southeast down the trail and Moccasin Springs is on the right at the base of the slope. Access and fee information can be obtained at the Seminole State Forest south entrance.
