Great Manatee and bird watching opportunities at this quaint campsite.

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!

Old Florida Vibe

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.

Stayed twice

Relaxing and scenic. Good trails. Kayaks/Canoes available to rent. Bathrooms and showers were always clean.

The best!!!

Love this place so many trails

Camp Site # 9

Starkey’s Campground has everything you could want or need. Friendly staff, plenty of critters, and beautiful trails to walk.

Campsite #9 has so far been my most favorite spot here. It’s VERY spacious (could easily fit 5 large tents here) and the back of the site has a trail that leads directly to The McNeil Homestead. If you’re looking for a bit of a spook, I highly suggest walking this at night time.

This campsite is the only one that has a turning grill on the fire pit, so you won’t have to bring any cooking gear.

Great place to camp, especially site # 9.

Very nice

The place is very quiet and nice. Restrooms are very clean. Right by the trails. We stay here every year. The pond seems clean enough for a swim.

Beautiful & Restful

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!

Sweet spot in the middle of CMA

Great location, decent size campsites. Right in the middle of Croom Motorcycle Area and trail access for OHV is 10ft from out campsite.

Bathrooms aren’t heated so can be cold at night.

Amazing view of the stars at night

Expect to hear dirt bikes and ATVs all day if you camp here.

Love this place !

Small,quiet, and out of the way in the middle of the Withlacoochee State Forest. Only 27 sites with water and electric and a dump station on the way out. All sites have fire pit with grill, picnic table and level cement pad. We had a large beautiful oak on our site. Lots of hiking and hunting if you want it. Way out in the forest yet near to town. A campground for tents or RV. They have a clean, well maintained bathroom and recycling at the trash house. Fenced and gated (I assume to keep pets and people safe from the wildlife). Kinda sketchy cell service. I only wish we had more time here. A change of plans left only one night. And I was unable to get reservations to extend our stay for longer. So plan well ahead of time.
