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.
