    The Indian mounds have a peaceful feeling and since there are few visitors you can walk and think without running into others. Beautiful at sunset. There is something about this place that calls me to come back Every time I am here. Serenity found.

    This is an interesting place whether you have have an interest in Indian/Native American culture or just history in general. The ranger at the museum was very knowledgeable and friendly, speaking with me for an hour and answering questions.

Where to stay in Crystal River

If you wish to explore Florida's great outdoors on your own terms, consider renting a cabin in or near the quiet community of Crystal River. The area's vacation rentals not only offer fully equipped kitchens, private pools and spas, game rooms, and laundry facilities, but also provide you with more privacy than a hotel, motel, or bed and breakfast could. For something even more outdoorsy, and considerably less expensive, consider one of the area's campgrounds or RV parks.
