Portions of the following information were taken from Florida Geological Survey Bulletin 66.

Bugg Spring is located about 0.4 mile northwest of Okahumpka on private property and is not open to the public. The spring is leased to the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory for underwater sound research.

Description - Bugg Spring is a 2nd magnitude spring with a deep, circular pool about 400 feet in diameter. Except on the western side, the side walls are almost vertical, reaching depths of 170 feet to 175 feet. There is no boil observed on the pool surface due to the depth of the spring opening. There is very little aquatic vegetation, but algae is present in the spring pool and run. The spring run flows north about 0.8 mile into the Helena Run outflow from Lake Denham. The low-lying areas around the spring are densely forested, with sandhills to the south.
