Hosts were very accommodating, site was clean and quiet. Close enough to reality to go out for what you need, but secluded enough to get some solitude.

We drove out to The Old White House by way of Ocala, Florida. It was a pretty country drive with a lot of beautiful old growth trees spread out on flat to rolling pasture. I wanted to stop many times because the photos would have been gorgeous, but were were racing to get past a brooding storm that was crackling lightning and thunder. The Old White House is a 126 years old, the oldest structure in the county! It now serves as an antique shop that has monthly sales along with live music and food trucks. We pulled in behind the house to a lovely flat yard with a huge oak just perfect for us to tuck our van under.
There was a string of lights already hanging in the tree, a small fire ring, a table with four chairs, and a bathroom off the back of the house open and clean for us to use. Though the house is on a fairly busy road we felt safe and comfortable set up in the open space behind it.
Brenda and Chris welcomed as we got there and couldn’t have been nicer or more excited for our visit. We felt right at home immediately. There is enough space here for several campers at once, especially because the yard outback works like a circle. They have left an island of trees and shrubs in the center so it actually provides more privacy than if the entire yard was mowed.
If you are looking for a unique spot to set up camp, don’t hesitate to choose this one! It’s right near the Withlacoochee State Park and just 7 miles from the Homosassa Springs State Park where you can see manatees during the spring! The camp site is also very close to shops, gas stations, and grocery stores.

Such great buildings at this site.Under this tree is where we set up camp.This used to be the inspection station in town.Checking out the scenery!

Great spot to camp if you’re in the Inverness Crystal River area. Lots of room to camp and a camp host that brought us fresh fruit and loads of great local knowledge.

I could not be happier that I found The Old White House in Lecanto FL. I am on a property scouting mission here and needed a safe, convenient location. After a terrible week at an I 75 rv "resort", parked in the only remaining site next to the water treatment plant, I found Brenda Lee and Chris. We hit it off immediately and I am sure will be friends as I move forward with my wooded camp project. Great people and and great location!

From the pics online I thought site was more in the woods. Road traffic and sirens ( hospital around corner) can be heard all night. Also the listing does not say electric is an addition $10 on top of the $20. The property is behind a antique shop. There is a bathroom. Showers are out side. Several fire ant mounds that need treated. The person acting as camp host is very friendly and sociable. We enjoyed swapping stories with him.
