There are 53 full hookup RV sites, 28 primitive tent sites, boat ramps and parking, general store and boat rentals. All this lies next to and on the Chassahowitzka River.
Both the RV camping and primitive camping areas are partially shaded with mature oaks, cedars, pines and palms. The individual RV sites feature fire rings, picnic tables, 30 or 50 amp electrical service, sewer connections, and spigots for potable water. There is a wifi signal broadcast throughout the RV Park. Of the 53 RV sites, 8 are the pull-through type. There is a dump station near the entrance to the RV park.
The tent or primitive camping area is separate from the RV Park, further to the west. It also features fire rings and picnic tables at each campsite.
I have stayed here several times and it is a nice spot to stage for visiting Homosassa, Manatees and the greater Crystal River area! The campground has a tent-only loop and an RV loop and nice showers and even some recreation on-site. They have a boat ramp to go kayak, paddleboard, or boat and there are several springs on the river (The Chaz).
Took a spur of the moment camping trip with some friends — my buddy called the campground up on a Saturday night late afternoon/early evening and they had a spot open. So, once our friend finished worked (pretty late at night - around 10pm or so), we made the 1.5-2 hour drive north.
We arrived after dark but had no issues finding our site. It was a great little spot to stay overnight to get our “camping fix” as well as have easy access in the AM to springs, rivers, nature & offroading trails.
Also - pet friendly! Big plus as one of the members of our group & myself brought our dogs (spur of moment wouldn’t have been possible had they not been pet friendly!)
We have stayed here before. The sites are tight! Must be prepared to take your time to get your unit in and out. The costumer service a one star for sure. Tried calling and emailing before our arrival and no response ever! We booked online. Horse flies and mosquitoes were viscous this time so bring lots of spray. Picnic tables and fire ring were at the site this time. Bring kayaks and bikes to enjoy park.
I know some campers like to have huge crowds and loud music late into the night so I book campgrounds that have a quiet hour policy. This campground did have stated quiet hours (and a no alcohol policy). They didn’t enforce either. One group had loud parties two nights in a row. I don’t know when they ended but I fell asleep at 1:30 and they were still partying. There was no security to speak of. There was a gate but it didn’t look like it had been closed ever so people drove through at all hours. If you want to party this place is a good spot. Sites are cramped but shady. Bring bug spray. Site #18 was tricky to get into but had a private side.
First time ever taking the camper out. Staff was extremely helpful and welcoming. Sites did lack a ton of privacy depending on your site, but campground itself was beautiful and very quiet. Our site was at the front so we did not experience any of the potholes on the property, but did see some while walking around. Definitely recommend site 3 as it is one of the largest sites with great proximity to everything. Bathrooms were clean and very close to all the sites. Best part was the close proximity of the river and the availability to rent a canoe. Went to Seven Sisters Springs for the day. Incredibly beautiful. Overall, great campground for a relaxing getaway.
What a great time we had here! Canoeing one day, Kayaking the next. Lots of swimming in such a beautiful Spring -filled area! 3 Sisters spring was fun to swim in and out of the "HOLES"! Manatees, Otters, many Water Fowl, and Turtles! Trails to explore. Nice camp store. Nice CLEAN Shower/bath houses with hot water. The canoe/kayak staff were so very helpful and patient helping my husband in and out of the canoe, so important ! Need to go bck, there so much more to see!
The first night we had power surges all night we were told that our spot had an old box that needed to replace. We had to move to A difference by the next day. The springs were gorgeous but make sure if you go you ask for a spot with a newer power supply so you don’t run into the same issue. The park help that lived on site was very rude to my husband and I was told by the store staff that he’s just not a people person. We have a brand new unit and unfortunately lost one electronic device due to power surges. Definitely investing in a surge protector for our unit. Don’t believe we will visit this campground again.
This is one of the best places to just chill in the water and swim through some caves. The river has a good mix of wild life and natural springs. You can see manatee easily here. The campground is quite and plenty to do there too. They have a play ground horse shoes, corn hole, and basketball at the front. There’s plenty of electric and primitive camping for your pleasure. The spaces accommodate a few tents and hammocks on each site. The bathrooms are clean and need a code so not everyone can use them. There is a local bar in walking distance down the street if you want to stay up and talk with the locals there is a 10pm quite time. That is the only downside because we were up hanging out late and were told to quite down by the owners or we’d be thrown out after we were drinking on the river all day. It was only 10:15 and barley anyone at the campground.
This is a campground located in the swamp. That being said it's buggy, wet if raining. The restrooms are clean and modern. The river is the draw. Canoes and kayak rentals are available. There is also a fleet of fishing guides available. The river is spring fed shallow and beautiful.
This campground is very close to major Springs such as weeki watchi, three sisters, and homosassa. There is a boat ramp in the campground where you are able to take a short paddle to a spring head. The campsites themselves are large and shaded by nature trees. This campground is also pet friendly.
