“scenic freshwater spring”

A wonderful scenic freshwater spring just off the Escambia River on the Florida Panhandle. The cool, clear Escambia River is popular for fishing and swimming, and is largely protected under District ownership.  Some 30 miles of forested river corridor, covering about 35,000 acres of floodplain, is being preserved in its natural state for posterity.  While providing access for nature appreciation and recreation, the area, operated as the Escambia River Water Management Area (WMA), also secures a vegetated buffer that filters runoff and preserves water quality in an endangered system, which flows to Pensacola Bay.  The extensive preserve also offers a continuous ecosystem of diverse habitats. The Escambia River WMA provides several boat ramps and primitive campsites, as well as the Mystic Springs Group Use Campsite, available on weekends by reservation for groups of 25 or less.  A group area permit application is required.  It includes primitive campsites, picnic tables, fire rings, trails, charcoal grills, a toilet and a pavilion.  A public boat ramp is located nearby.

Mystic Springs does not resemble the official description or picture.

This site is owned by the North West Florida Water Management t District.

The Escambia River at this location is brown and muddy looking. We could not find any springs but there were a few ponds in the area

There are free primitive campsites (no electricity, water, sewer, or dump station) however reservations are required.

There’s also a boat ramp and chemical toilet.

It is a quiet spot to camp but if you are expecting a beautiful spring you will be sorely disappointed
