We love this place! Great sites on the Intercoastal & good interior sites as well. Bathrooms are modern & clean. Great heated pool & hot tubs. Staff is excellent. Lots of beaches & places to visit & explore nearby. We come back every January & it always feels like home!
This was the first stop after picking up our Caravel Airstream (from Airstream of Tampa). The campground is quaint, clean and easy to find however the spots are a bit tight and spaced fairly closely together. "Backing in' to spot #49 was a bit of a challenge as this is a fairly new hobby for us! Everyone we met was super friendly. The campsite has their own dock (next to the Trading Post) where you can rent canoes and kayaks. You can see manatees and numerous native birds. We will absolutely be back!
I just wanted to update the review. As of mid January, 2021…sites are covid spaced, no host, all sites are reserve only .
I have camped here several times, in different seasons. Late spring into summer river is high and fast. This time of year low and slow. By March/April its really low. Now, in mid Jan, its still easy to get to the "lake" , later on you may have to portage a short way depending on rainfall.
Camping there has always been fun, its almost dry camping, shower's hot. Not for big rigs (go to silver lake) no elec. $15 + fee
Campsites are actually on the Little Withlacoochee river..with makes a junction with the… Withlacoochee!
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.
As a beginner camper the time I have spent on these campgrounds has been a lot of fun. Got to go there with a group of 8 guys and were able to have enough space to be by ourselves and plenty room for activities like frisbee, football, and soccer. Canoeing to your camp site is the way to go. We did the 8-mile trek which wasn't too bad for a group of 30 year old guys that are out of shape. However the campgrounds do get pricey. Either way its a great time for a group.
We loved our stay at Buttonwood. It is a popular snowbird community, but they also have spots for people that are short term. It is in a very desirable location- 0.8 miles to the beach and 0.2 miles from an awesome fish taco place- Tide Tables. If you need to go to the grocery or any shopping- Home Depot, Walmart, TJMaxx, Hobby Lobby, Starbucks, Dollar Tree, Walgreens, etc is within 10 minutes.
Wifi worked awesome and very fast. AT&T service worked great as well.
There are palm trees that divide sites, so although fairly close to your neighbors, you feel more private. Level site- not sandy or dusty. The row right by the road probably hear's more road noise, but at site 26 it was subtle. I can't find anything bad to say about this place and we would recommend to anyone. The price is worth it!
The only thing we struggled with were a few tiny black ants that came in after sitting there for 2 weeks, but we quickly resolved.
Fort De Soto will forever be one of my favorite camp grounds. The beautiful weather, the critters, the terrain…all of it. Expect a nice, calming breeze rustling through the trees whisking you off to sleep. It’s totally zen.
All sites are pretty spacious, but I highly recommend riverside if you can snag one (a tad bit pricier). Note that the dog friendly site has great spots, but a little less privacy.
The best part about this spot, hands down, is the people you’ll run into there. People from all over the US travel just to spend a few nights there, and you’ll find yourself making new acquaintances every time.
The camp store just a short walk away has all the necessities you could ask for (even a snack bar a full Icecream shop!) should you forget anything, but most things are a bit pricier as to be expected. Should you need anything, I highly suggest running down to the 711 just a few miles away from the campground. They have firewood year round, and it’s 7 dollars as compared to 10 dollars a bag at the camp shop.
Be mindful of the raccoons at this campground. They are absolutely everywhere (most likely due to people feeding them in the past) and will have their hands in your cooler the moment the sun goes down. I highly suggest keeping food in your vehicle.
