This is a campground--not a RV resort. No fancy slabs. But when we were there, most of the people were friendly. One office worker has very bad manners. Although, the park owner was a wonderful lady. Most campers were friendly. Down side is park opened their doors to traveling workers for power plant. Some were nice, others were very undesirable. Several other parks in area, but each has distinct classifications. Pool was nice, fishing good. We would not choose to camp in Crystal River again. Personally, we enjoyed the campground, we did not care for the area.

This park is poorly maintained. Roads are in disrepair. Activities were great for kids on halloween weekend. The only plus. Security was non existent. When I asked who was security for night, I was shocked at what I saw. Party went on with "security" in charge. Air horns at 4 am so "security" could have fun. For an Encore, this was a big dissapointment. This park really is a joke. For the price, go down south to some great rv resorts. On other respects, the wi-fi was good at our site, bathrooms were clean, but backed up overnight and were not unplugged until morning. I was told "security" knew, but did nothing. Added plus was breakfast on Saturday. Left early Sunday for a real rv resort. We won't be back. I was told by a resident the manager leaves each weekend for Daytona. Cops every weekend. Can't blame him, this place is a zoo. This is my last stay at any Encore park.

This is a beautiful ownership park located in northern Crystal River. The sites are wide, long and clean. Lawn maintenance is excellent. Laundry, shower, pool all clean and well maintained. Wi-Fi is good with improvements being made. Excellent connection in clubhouse. A new clubhouse was built while we were there. We stayed here six months and may return and purchase a site. A safe, quiet park for long term or while exploring the area.

We were towed in as our truck broke down. These people were great. They extended our stay as needed. Park is clean, convenient and very professional. Sites are level pads. Breakfast is included in the fee. We will stop there again.

This park has all the bells and whistles. Rv parks need to be more than facilities. Taking your money at check-in, the lady is nice and polite. When you decide to move on, her attitude turns to resentment and anger. Nicest person in the park was the landscaper. This park is eliminating RV's. 90% is now park models. Plenty of other excellent parks in area.

This is a beautiful park. Clean and well maintained. At check-in, I was given a tour of pool, spa, clubhouse, laundry, restrooms, etc. The exercise room had new equipment and an massage lounge chair. There are 5 computers available to guests, plus a dial-up port, plus wi-fi. It is only $4 per day and, evidently, works just fine. Beautiful sunsets and quiet. Trains are everywhere in the west. Try living near an air force base! This is a delightful park. We will be back.

This is one of the nicest parks we have ever been to. Very friendly and helpful owners. Clean, clean, clean! Not a blade of grass out of place. Had trouble with wifi and owner was on it immediately. Pool is delightful. Town is small, but adequate with restaurants, food store and a quilt store. I'm a happy camper! Went for the weekend and stayed for a week. On the favorites list!

Park is over run with red ants. No mail service at all. Park changed hands this year and new owners are ill advised on rv park management. Food in cafe is awlful and cafe is dirty. Dock is barricaded and unusable. County dock is beside camp and is much better, but not accessable through camp. No propane as no one there is qualified to pump. This was a beautiful RV resort, but no longer. Safety is a problem. Golf course is in need of repairs. Plenty of other parks in area which are nicer and closer to Ocala.
