The price is averaged from our month stay. The park is OK, with fairly level cement and gravel sites. Wi-Fi is available but is not free. We were on the side next to a small canal with a tiny private dock so if you have a boat you might like it better but the canal faces houses so is not very pretty. Our site fit our 40' motorhome just fine but many of the sites wouldn't work for that size. There is a large dock in the park with a fish-cleaning station that can smell really bad and a lot of vultures hang out to feast. There are many lots that people pay to keep year-round and when the couple next to us arrived the guy actually yelled at us for having our sewer hose on the ground next to our coach because he said he paid for everything past our cement pad. People just did not seem friendly at all. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

This was more of a campground for locals to set up semi-permanent RVs for fishing than a resort type CG. July is scallop season so it was crowded. We would not go back and wish we had read reviews before purchasing a week from Encore Resorts sales folks at an FMCA event. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

Loved this RV Resort! Stayed here for two months with my husband's job and fell in love with the park and the people in it. Made many good friends and plan to go back when we're able. Office clerks were wonderful, helpful and friendly. Grounds are well kept along with laundromat and restrooms. Great park with lots to do! We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The girls at the office were very nice and helpful. The park was not very full at the time so we were given a nice site that was paved. It rained in the evening, so many of the sites in our area were flooded. Be prepared for the no-seeums! We received a list of the rules and guidelines, but they are not followed or enforced at all. The site next to us was occupied by a permanent resident who was obviously a hoarder. There was trash all over the site--at least 30 plants in pots, many empty pots, 4 large plastic bins sitting all over, picnic table piled high with stuff and lots more behind the camper. The pets were not kept on leashes. This was not the only site like this. The trash dumpster smelled so bad of dead fish or animals that you could smell it for 2 blocks. This could be a nice park, but many things are badly in need of repair. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here through Coast to Coast. Sites are large, some need work, some are great. Ours had lots of room, with pond in rear and space on each side. This is an older park but the restrooms are well kept and quite clean. I would stay here again as the amenities are nice and the area is very interesting. Nice pool, one tennis court in good shape, hot tub not working. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly staff, helpful. Tight back ins, but full service, including good free cable. Wi-Fi is cheap, $3 for 2 users for 24 hours. We played tennis and swam in a nice pool. We here before the large group of snowbirds are coming through, so we had lots of space. We kayaked with Manatees nearby, so bring your boats/kayaks, lots of water around. We will return.

This is a low lying campground, so when it rains, for any duration, you are going to have mud and soft ground. They do not have adequate drainage, and this is evident with all of the stagnant water. We experienced A/C problems, turning on/off and not staying on. We found that there was just an inadequate amount of power at the 50 amp sites to accommodate all of us. We did report this to management. Laundry was clean. Store was very small and had essentials only. The grounds have lots of amenities; unfortunately, they do not appear to be maintained. Canal Elite Plus sites are recommended due to high ground, paving, and waterfront. They are $30/night more. The pool has a lot of potential but has been let go for too long. The kiddie pool was filled. The hot tub was not working. The big pool had some crumbling walls. Roads are narrow but paved. The cabins, 1-10, are across from sites 201-217 and do not have sufficient parking. It is under a new manager, and they were working to raise the lots for campers, etc. However, they have a lot of work ahead of them. Staff appeared to be overworked, and this reflected on their personality when greeting arrivals. Note that the wi-fi is an additional fee for daily, weekly, monthly, or annually. It doesn't appear to be limited either. We would not stay here again. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

This is an attractive park with lots of amenities. Staff is friendly and helpful. Conveniently located to tour the area and see its main draw: Manatees. The Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park is a must see. We enjoyed our stay here. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here 2 nights and were pleased by the roominess and natural surroundings. Even though it is a large park, there were enough trees and open spaces where it almost felt like a state or national park campground but with great amenities. The activities director is great - you could tell she tried to have things for everyone. We joined a bus trip to the Hard Rock Casino. The pool and hot tub were clean and nice, also. For our dog, there were plenty of spaces and "doggy stations" with bags, etc. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

Large park with paved roads and a mix of hard surface and gravel sites. They have WiFi available for $3 day. Verizon and MiFi work great. The pool and club house are nice and the showers were clean and had plenty of hot water. It's close to manatee habitat and right on a canal with their own boat ramp if you are into fishing. Generally a pretty quiet place. The space we got into was a bit tight to get into but the long time residents here had kind of expanded to take over the sites on either side of us with some stuff so we weren't right on top of one another. All and all an OK place that I'd stay at again if we were in the area. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Passport America. Nice RV park - lots of space, most sites are backin. Sites range from waterfront to wooded; and full cement pads to just plain ground. Waterfront sites seemed to be all taken for year rounders, but there's a decent boat ramp and storage for RVers with boats. We were advised that the grounds around our rig might flood if there were heavy rains, (we grabbed a full cement pad to avoid any potential problem). Laundry seemed nice, bathrooms were standard, but not convenient to tent sites. Pool, hot tub, and kiddie pool were nice. They provide a buffet breakfast for a fee on weekends. Our biggest complaint is not something the campground can generally do something about - but the biting insects were severe - no-see-ums and chiggers love new blood (me more-so than spouse's). We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nights Stayed – 2 Park Overall – We arrived late our 1st night, so we were only there one full day. There are canal and lake sites as well as off water sites. The park has well maintained paved roads. All sites are cement with cement patios. Many park residents were there long term or permanent. The sites are close but ample. There is a coin laundry. RV Type Used - 5th Wheel 28 Ft, one slide. My Site (54) – Is on the canal, if you have a boat you could tie it to the provided dock, The RV parking area and the patio are cement and 1st class. The site is level. Bath house is a 1 minute walk. Small but adequate side. Restroom –Very clean, heated, hand soap and towels. Bath – Very clean, heated Cell Service - Verizon worked, 3+ bars - 3G at lease Internet Access – NA – We connected via Verizon Hotspot on our phone. Satellite TV – Did not connect DTV. The parks’ cable is adequate for a 66 year old. Basic Shopping – Town is about 4 miles away, everything you need. Would I Return – Yes, I like the park and the area looks interesting. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for two nights through our TT membership as a waystop to our actual destination. We were pleasantly surprised at the beauty and quality of the grounds and the friendliness of the staff. Very pleasant RV spots surrounded by trees, green grass and ponds/canal. Residents are a combination of short-stay and long-stay RVers who were all very friendly. We intend to come back for a longer stay. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park. They have improved the cable TV. We have never experienced any problems. However the no see-ums will carry you away if you don't use bug spray. Also they allow fire pits for those who like to have a fire. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

Without electricity since 07/16/11 sat a.m. Horrendous flooding problems on west side of park and no real concern by regional management. Offers no refund and must move to another resort tomorrow because no electric in site and mud hole around management home. Would not recommend this park or any Encore Resort that has no concern for clients. No site cleanup by staff, palm fronds and sticks and leaf litter contribute to plugged storm drains resulting in flooding. I've been here since April and planned on another year, not now, moving tomorrow. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.
