Location

Markee Spring is located in the Seminole State Forest about 1.6 miles southeast of Cassia.

Description

Markee Spring, also known as Mud Stone Spring, has an oval-shaped pool 22 feet long, 10 feet wide and 2.1 feet deep. There is a slight cone-like depression at the center of the pool. Water flows from sand boils covered with organic debris. The vent is not discernable due to mud, leaves, and organic debris covering the pool bottom. The water is tannic but clear. No aquatic vegetation or algae are present and no boil is visible. The run is 500 feet long, 10 feet wide and 1 foot deep. It splits and meanders as it flows north into the surrounding floodplain and ultimately into the Sulphur Run. Like the spring pool, its bottom is covered with mud and an abundance of debris. The spring is about 500 feet from Sulphur Run.

The surrounding area is lowland hardwood forest.

Utilization

The spring is undeveloped.
