Staff was very friendly and helpful. Park has many seasonal and full-time residents. Most resident sites were well kept. We were led to our site and had assistance in parking as well as explanation of utilities. Site rental was full hookup 50 amp including cable TV and free WiFi on grass. We were unable to get free WiFi to work. Our site was open, so we could receive sat TV. Verizon signal was 4 bars LTE. Interior roads are paved. We camped at Lake Rousseau RV Park & Fishing Resort in a Motorhome.

This campground is a bit off the beaten track. It's on the north side of Crystal River so it takes 15 minutes to get to most of the things in Crystal River, and about 25 minutes to Homosassa Springs. It is a quiet campground with very friendly residents. Everyone we met were very kind and always sprung up a conversation. A fair number are permanent residents and there are also a large number of trailer homes but they look cared for. The campground felt very safe and rather homey. Lake Rousseau offers free wifi through tengo, you have to get a coupon for each device. We didn't use their wifi and simply used our hotspot. The signal for AT&T is pretty weak in that area, and Verizon LTE was weak but acceptable. We used our booster for better signal. The sites are some gravel, sand, and grass. Mostly level with the utilities behind the coach. There are a lot of old trees so many of the sites are fairly shaded. Our site (33) is nice and large, but the one right next to us had almost no camping area. The campground is situated right on Lake Rousseau with a boat launch area. The lake is not dog-friendly (alligators are present) but very pretty to look at. It also had a couple of dog park areas you could use. They have a swimming pool but we didn't use it. This is a good place if you're looking for quiet and perhaps some fishing. It's not a resort and there are not a lot of activities to do. The campground is quiet, pretty, and well-tended but a bit further away from town. We'd stay there again. We camped at Lake Rousseau RV Park & Fishing Resort in a Motorhome.

It was a nice campground in a natural setting. Nothing fancy, clean and well kept. A good number of snowbirds/seasonal campers. Electric was reliable. We would stay here again. We camped at Lake Rousseau RV Park & Fishing Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

A bit too congested for our tastes, and no concrete pads or patios. For non permanents, the sites are simply all over the large yard on grass and dirt. Huge water oaks with hanging moss are pretty, but during windy conditions can drop branches and limbs on your unit. Had all kinds of problems with our cable hookup, but the maintenance person did manage to correct with a new end piece. Very nice fellow. Bath house always clean. The lake is full of stumps, but still nice for a canoe trip. Lots of duck hunters and bass fisherman use the lake. The best site in the whole park is #77. All others have no view of the lake. This is old Florida style living. 12 miles to get to any supplies, so come stocked. Roads are narrow coming in. Park is mostly seasonals and permanents. We camped at Lake Rousseau RV Park & Fishing Resort in a Motorhome.

This is just a really a nice park. If you are looking for glitz, go somewhere else. But, if you are looking for big, gorgeous sites under hundred year old mossy oak trees, come here. The sites in our side of the park are large with concrete patios and tables, and easily accessible sewage and electric. The staff runs around in golf carts to ensure safety and park compliance, but they don't feel intrusive. The lake is beautiful and is full of fish. The staff is helpful and friendly, and you'll probably want to come back year after year. The location is very good as well. It is 35 minutes from Cedar Key, a short distance to gorgeous Rainbow Springs and Homosassa, and both Tampa and Orlando within 75 miles. This campsite is not near major roads, so the tradeoff is you have to go a little out of the way (about 5 miles maybe). It's pristine and quiet. Laundry is fine and bathrooms always clean. The pool is warm and very clean as well. It's heated. I'd recommend this RV park. We camped at Lake Rousseau RV Park & Fishing Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We were surprised at the number of high ratings for this park - it was just okay - the grounds and facilities are tired and in need of updating, the staff in the office were not friendly, although the work campers and residents/other campers were very friendly. Sites were not well organized - easy to get into and big, but the sewer connections were practically in your neighbor's site, thus their connection in your site. Verizon 3G worked well; they offer TengoNet ($5/day) for WiFi, but we didn't use it. We camped at Lake Rousseau RV Park & Fishing Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We gathered here for a family reunion and it was wonderful. It is a family owned and operated park and you can sure tell. They are proud of their park and pay attention to the details. The clubhouse is so pleasant, the whole facility is clean as whistle, and the staff couldn't have been nicer. There is a beautiful lake view, there are big shade trees, and there are activities, too. We had such a good time, we will come back on our own and do some fishing, which looks to be a great opportunity. There is a store and a bait shop, a swimming pool, and a nice place to walk. We sat in a swing and looked at the lake; it was wonderful. We camped at Lake Rousseau RV Park & Fishing Resort in a Motorhome.

Very pretty place on the lake. Great fishing, and everything you'd want for a peaceful stay. A little out of the way but they have a great club house and small store on the property. Staff is friendly. Will stay again. We camped at Lake Rousseau RV Park & Fishing Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This park has mostly permanent or seasonal sites, extensions built on RVs or park models with porches, etc. We had a "water view" site, but the water was on our off door side, so we couldn't see the water unless we walked around our RV and the others parked closer to the water. It was a challenge to back in to site due to other RVs and vehicles. We had to back up so close to another rig that we could have watched each other cook dinner! Site are gravel & grass. We felt the rate of $37/night is high for what you get. We probably will not stay here again. We camped at Lake Rousseau RV Park & Fishing Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice, friendly park. A fair number of seasonal occupants, who come for the season. Good size sites, very inexpensive for what you get. A bit outside of town, but VERY quiet at night. Good cable, excellent park store, friendly staff. We would stay here again. We camped at Lake Rousseau RV Park & Fishing Resort in a Motorhome.

Fabulous water views and great fishing for panfish like bluegill and crappie, and especially the bass, which we saw in the 8-10 lb. range. They have a boat ramp, slips, fishing dock, and swimming pool. Most sites are shaded by big oak trees in Spanish moss, very Old Florida in a beautiful natural setting. We had one of the premium spots down near the water for a little extra. The place is owned and operated by an extremely nice family with great Southern hospitality, and the staff really goes out of their way to help make your stay the best it can be. Everyone we met there was really agreeable and helpful, an excellent experience. The park facilities including restrooms and clubhouse etc. were very clean and attractively decorated, with lots of extra touches. They have a full service bait shop and store with conveniences and basic items you might need for camping. There are manatee sightseeing and swimming tours in the town nearby, and a clear spring fed river for tubing and canoeing. We camped at Lake Rousseau RV Park & Fishing Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here for 8 nights while my mother recovered from recent cancer treatment. I picked this campground because I was looking for someplace quiet, shady, and that had that "old Florida" feel because this trip was my mother's first time in the state of Florida. This campground met all of those requirements and then some. The staff gave us site 75 which had a magnificent view of Lake Rousseau which all three of us enjoyed (me, my mom, and my sister who flew down from Delaware). There are HUGE live oak trees with masses of Spanish moss hanging from the branches that adds to the picturesque nature of the campground. We didn't fish but enjoyed watching the fishermen launch their boats at the boat launch not more than a hundred feet away from our site. We all three enjoyed our stay and hated to leave. The only thing I could find to complain about would be the design of the sites on our side of the loop. It would have been great to pull into the spot rather than back in so as to take better advantage of the lake view while sitting outside. But that is such a minor thing. Also, while we were there, Mother Nature decided to make life interesting with HOARDS of midges which are harmless flying insects that resemble mosquitoes. They covered everything and were more of an annoyance than anything else but if you're going to camp in Florida you had better get used to the bugs. I also liked the fact that the campground allows campers to wash their rigs on their site. I wish every campground would do the same to prevent the mildewy roofs and walls of the long-term campers I've seen in other parks that really detract from the surroundings. There is a local man who will come to your site and wash your rig for you at a reasonable price. Check with the office for his number. We camped at Lake Rousseau RV Park & Fishing Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Lake Rousseau RV Park & Fishing Resort in a Motorhome.

Very friendly park at the end of a long road. WiFi available and free cable. While we didn't fish, it was oriented to fishing. Big bass, saw pics of our neighbor with a 10 pounder. We camped at Lake Rousseau RV Park & Fishing Resort in a Motorhome.
