4 Parks near Homosassa, Florida
Oct 2015 - $40.00
Very noisy parties kept us from sleeping for two nights in a row. This campground could be OK if it wasn't for a group of regulars who party there on the week-end until 2 AM. Not teenagers but older people who get drunk, make loud music, bang on tables, women screaming etc. You could hear them from inside our trailer even with earplugs. We did not want to start a fight with drunks or call the cops but we'll never go back.
I give it a 2 rating because the boat ramp was nice, pool is OK and the place was clean. If you want to fish and get drunk, it may be fine. - Jacques Mertens

We called ahead of time to make certain our very sweet Rottweillers would be welcome. After staying two weeks of our three months I was verbally attacked and told 'nobody wants you here, just leave'! This happened right out in the open for no reason as we were minding our own business and thought everything was fine. Apparently this is how they compel a camper to leave. The sites were very tight. The people were all very clickish. If you weren't a seasonal camper, you were Not spoken to. Have Never been treated thusly. Will certainly Not go back. We were on a bucket list trip. Our Rotties are our babies and we've stayed at several campgrounds as we are avid campers where we've had compliments on how well behaved they are. We were able, on short notice to find a campground we were welcome. We did not use the restrooms, the pool looked inviting. The views of wildlife from the boardwalk are perfect. - susan baranowski

We were put in a site that they said was a pull in and back out of but it was just the opposite. We ended up moving to another site because the cable and the electric didn't work on the first site. Campground interior roads are tight to say the least and every 20 feet there is a speed bump that rocks the coach and with roads that small, the speed bumps don't seem necessary at all. Very tight camp spaces as well. Because they are on the water, and you are surrounded by trees, be prepared for biting insects. Just bring insect repellent and you should be okay. - mhmama

Spent a week here, enjoying the forest and river. The site (#9) was roomy, mostly level, grass and sand with a picnic table, fire pit and integrated grill. The hookups were good, but no cable and no OTA TV stations were obtainable. However -- and I never thought I would ever say this about any RV park -- the WiFi was awesome! We were able to stream TV/movies without much difficulty. No, it wasn't perfect, but it was the best I've seen. Good laundry room, clean restroom/showers, recreation room with large screen DirecTV/TV, and saw a children's playground.
The roads in the park were sand/dirt and had a few potholes, but not a big deal if you go slow. The surrounding forest, from floor to canopy, was fabulous and quiet and we very much enjoyed being there. I think because of the fire rings, a lot of people lit fires (partly, I'm sure, because it was cold, too!) so it was smokey some of the time. Everyone we met was very friendly.
The office also rents kayaks and canoes, and there is a boat ramp. We would definitely want to camp here again, and for ever longer! - RobtL

We stayed here specifically because the kayaking was advertised as excellent. We were not disappointed. Even though the water was quite shallow in places, we were able to explore both upstream and down (and also saw our first manatees closeup from our kayak). The boat launch was at least 1/4 mile from the campground, and parking near the launch area cost $5 per day (with no discount offered for campers). We chose to drop off our boat and park the car back at our campsite to save the additional cost. However, it would have been much more convenient to be parked closer. Campsites are nice and big with lots of tall trees. Most other campers were in smaller trailers and tents. Wood fires were quite popular. The unpaved road through the campground had some seriously deep potholes. - The Borgs

No security which is surprising for a county park; the road meanders through residential area and at the end you go right for the day use area, left for the campground. No gate, but the bathroom has a code-entry lock & you are advised to keep everything locked when you are away from your site. Very shady but no screening between sites. WiFi was good at my site #4. Major grocery store 2 miles away. Lots to do in the area but of course the main attraction is canoeing or kayaking on the Chassahowitzka River. It's beautiful with lots of wildlife. A bit pricy if paying by the day $33, but by the month it's a good deal at $389. - BigPa

We have stayed at this campground for the past two winters. The campground is now under new management and the owners are doing much needed upgrades. Close to three rivers leading to the Gulf of Mexico. The fresh spring fed rivers are home to the manatees during the winter months, and there are many local businesses catering to the visitors. - heartlandks

We had a spot right next to the water which had a nice dock for our boat. The marina restaurant and bar is a great place to meet people and the bartenders are pleasant and a lot of fun. The grounds are maintained well and the shower house is clean. The staff we dealt with help provide information about the area. Great place to vacation. - Earnest P

I have a love-hate relationship with this park. Has everything. Marina, bar/restaurant overlooking the river, clubhouse and much more. If you get the right spot you're shady with some room. Lots of permanents and seasonals so getting one of those spots unlikely. We were out in short term area. Spots were so tight couldn't use the awning and slides had very little extra space. We could see the river, but only if you looked under or around the 5th wheelers blocking the view. No table or patio. If you are a beer drinker you have found nirvana. I was here on a weekend and at dusk the golf carts came out with one hand on the wheel and the other holding a brew. I checked out other parks and would still stay here again. - plove

This is more of a "trailer park" than a campground. It's a huge place and I would say about 80-90% of occupants are either permanent or seasonal. There is a small area that appears to be set aside for short term campers. It's a nice, well-kept park, but felt a little weird. Lots of people zooming all over in golf carts and barely even a wave. Kind of like you're trespassing on their "community". Maybe that's just me. The sites are fairly close together and I'm not sure how big-rig friendly most of the non-permanent sites are. I'd call first if I had a huge rig with tow car. They have a really nice laundry, one of the best I've come across in eight months on the road full-time, and the restrooms were clean, bright, and modern. The shower stalls have doors, a small changing area with a bench and a couple hooks, and a normal size shower stall with a curtain. The wi-fi worked ok and Verizon signal was good. At $35/day including tax and Good Sam discount, it's pretty reasonably priced in my opinion, and a decent place to stay in the area. I would stay again. - Pdxjoanne
