Palm Springs is a 4th magnitude spring flowing from up to 7 vents or sand boils in the run. The upper 4 vents are labeled A, B, C, and D. The upper vent A is in a small pool that is closest to the road at the bottom of the ravine. Vent B is in the upper middle part of the run, vent C is in the lower middle part, and vent D is in the lower part of the run as it flows toward the northeast for about 0.3 mile to Black Water Creek. Prior to April 2003 the spring vents were impounded in a one acre pond by a dam. In April 2003 the earthen dam was removed, exposing the vents.
Palm Springs is located in the Seminole State Forest about 3.8 miles south-southeast of Cassia. From the south entrance of Seminole State Forest on State Road 46 (about 0.4 miles 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 to the next intersection. Turn to the left and go toward the southwest for 0.5 mile, then veer left and drive another 0.6 mile (about 0.4 mile past Moccasin Camp Road). Park in this area since no vehicles are allowed on the horse trails. Veer left onto a horse trail and walk another 0.4 mile. Walk about 100 feet to the east toward the upper vent A of Palm Springs at the bottom of a ravine. Access and fee information can be obtained at the Seminole State Forest south entrance.
