More Info:
Goose Pasture is the only public camp ground on the lower Wacissa River. It is one of the take out points for boat trips from the head spring. From the Wacissa River head spring parking lot, drive north about 3/4 mile and turn south (left) on Hwy 59. Turn left on Hwy 98 and continue until you cross the Aucilla River. Turn left on the second paved road off 98. About 3 miles down the paved road it will turn into a dirt road. Take a left at the first dirt crossroad. Continue straight where the road forks, it will terminate at Goose Pasture.

Thanks for including a video I took of Cassidy Spring! I love seeing any sites dedicated to this wonderful river, on which I spend a great deal of time. The birds are great, too!
