We love small RV parks with easy living and charm. Cedars Lake is such a park in Old Homosassa Florida. Sites are situated around a small pond, under large oak canopies. The full-time and part-time folks are friendly. The management couple, who live onsite, are welcoming and very helpful. And Ernie, the Blue Heron, is entertaining. Essentials include laundry, wifi, picnic tables, pool, rec room, etc. Close to lots of things to do, like state parks, walking trails, museums, manatee watching, fishing. There must be 30+ local restaurants nearby. The Museum Cafe (authentic Cuban sandwiches) is our favorite. We've stayed in all types of RV parks from WA to FL and this is the sweetest. Initially we reserved it for a week and, once here, stayed three weeks because it was a charming home away from home.
Love this campground. You can have a waterfront site. The kids were able to play in the water right from camp. There are fire rings and the bathrooms were clean. No privacy but the sites are spaced out. There are a few nice trails across the street. It is on a military base.
Our stay at the campground was unfortunately cut short due to uncooperative weather, but we enjoyed our time there. The sites are roomy but fairly private or very private depending on the site, and well-kept with a fire ring and picnic table. The bathrooms were extremely clean, lit, and well maintained.
Spacey sites, though tent campers run the risk of RV generators in your ear as per most Florida state park sites.
Took me two days to see monkeys. I'd recommend staying 3 days if this is your primary reason for visiting the park. The Swamp and River trails (both trailheads are near the campground) are your best bet for seeing them on foot, but I only saw them by boat.
If you have your own boat or paddleboard, you can launch from the ramp half a mile off the River trail ($2 launch fee) and paddle upriver, then float down in the hopes of seeing monkeys. You can also launch from Ray Wayside Park and paddle all the way up (6 miles, get wrecked).
In addition to a troop of rhesus macaques I saw gators, cormorants, anhinga, hella fish, great blue heron, red bellied cooters, and one otter!
This campground is beautiful. Spanish moss hangs in the trees, the grounds are very well maintained, and the shower house is updated & pristine. We arrived after dark & were told we would need to use one of the pull through sites until morning so campground associate could assist us backing into our site. This was fine since we had been driving all day & were tired. Many RVs there for the season, some which appear annual, and full timers. Good mix & everyone was very nice. The dog park is excellent & there are plenty of potty stations with bags around the dog walk. We rented kayaks one day ($15 for a single kayak for one hour). The creek was gorgeous & easy to float. Wish we would have done that float daily. Would highly recommend this campground & we certainly will be back!
