A very quiet, safe residential neighborhood in rural area. Great for bird and squirrel watching, reading a book, star gazing, sleeping, or just chillin by your campfire. We are only ten minutes from swimming with the manatees, snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking etc. ...all in crystal clear rivers, springs, and Kings Bay. Homosassa Wildlife Park, and tubing on the Rainbow River..15 min away...WeekiWachee, the Spring of the live mermaids, and Ocala's glass bottom boats at Silver Springs both less than 45 min away. Great salt water fishing in the Gulf, or the dark waters of the Withlacoochee River are full of all kinds of freshwater fish, turtles, and gators...😂. Two tree swings for the kids...wood is available for each fire ring. I have a big old country porch with lots of rockers if you like to chat, drink coffee, or watch my hummingbirds up close...😃. A short walk will take you to a friendly neighbor that sells his local honey and gift items, or sit in the plum garden filled with wild Florida plums!  Crystal River has lots of quaint, small town shopping ...or if you prefer big town shopping....Gainesville and Tampa are about an hour and a half away. The neighbor behind us has a huge pasture with lots of cows and calves that come up to the fence... a real country atmosphere here...pajamas are allowed 24/7...😂🤣. Come relax, have fun ...if you prefer, you can use my WiFi. Both sites are full hookups ...one is a back in, the other can be back in or pull thru. 30 amp service ...very level ground. Mostly grass. Picnic tables and fire pits.  Hope to see you soon!

Upon arrival Betty was very friendly sweet and welcoming. Both campsites have Full hookups at a great price and a great location just minutes to Crystal River, FL.
We booked site #1 which is a back in site. There is plenty of room to maneuver into the site from the very large back yard. The site is level and has a picnic table and a rather large brick fire pit. The other site is far enough away that it felt private plus we facing the opposite direction from it. There was also some firewood stacked up between both sites that was available for our use. Site #1 backs up to a large beautiful pasture with some cows In the distance and it was absolutely beautiful to wake up to.
I would love to come back next time I’m visiting the Crystal River area.

I didn’t realize upon Michaels arrival that I was hosting a fellow HipCamp Host! Such a friendly couple! Only wish their visit could have lasted longer...would have loved picking their brains because after they left I checked out their HipCamp in North Carolina...Wow! Such a beautiful place with a stream running thru it...I will def stay with them next time I go thru North Carolina.....they definitely know how to host if you check them out....Gateway to the Smokies...you will see the ultimate HipCamp!

Away from the crowds! Loved staying in Betty's spacious backyard/garden. Staying here was like visiting a beloved family member. She let us have as much privacy as we wanted and provided us with everything a camper needs and then some. Full hook ups, picnic table, and fire pit. Close to many beautiful springs (we went paddle boarding on the beautiful Rainbow Springs). Added bonus... Feeding and watching the many birds. We will come back whenever we are in the area.

Thank you Beverly for the great review. You and Rob were the best under the worst weather conditions ever! Hurricane Elsa coming at us..wet wood, rain, rain, rain! And usually the birds are everywhere...so glad you got some golfing in...between showers! And wanted to compliment you on your two little dogs ....they were so well mannered.

Betty was a wonderful host and the site and property were beautiful. The site is close to Crystal river while still feeling secluded enough to feel like you are camping. I can not say enough great things about Betty. She made us feel so warm and welcomed. Thank you Betty!

Peaceful plum garden with granny

Great spot. Quiet and lots of privacy. Big area assigned to both spots with full hookups. Cows, eagles, squirrels, hawks and a host of song birds. The plum garden is heavenly! Close to Yankeetown for the best sunsets in the country. Close to Crystal River and the high quality seafood at Charlie’s. Pristine fishing at nearby Lake Rousseau, Withlacoochee River, and Gulf of Mexico. Amazing scuba diving with the manatees at King’s Bay, and snorkeling down the Rainbow River was world class. Scalloping in the flats, and a great walking/biking trail are just a few minutes away on the barge canal.

You’re both always welcome here and I pray you’ll always feel this place is your place when you’re not in Wyoming!! Can’t wait to see y’all again!!
