RV Parks in or around Crystal River, FL

Just wanted to know if anyone knows of good RV parks around this area that are good to stay at.
Also, from what we're reading, some of the parks don't like "school buses" being in there so we're just looking for the good and bad.

Thanks

Look into the State or County Parks - I have never really had any problem there. RV parks / resorts may not be as accepting.
The State parks are less expensive. I have stayed at several in Florida over the last few months - and really like them.
County parks are great, too. Sometimes they are even better- but every county is a little different.
You can reserve or browse state parks through ReserveAmerica.com - but I recommend going to the park in person (they seem pretty booked in the winter time around Florida).

Good luck!

We just like Manatee Springs State Park - really pretty there

I plan on making a trip to Yosemite and the Redwood Forest to show my daughter the places we hung out at as kids. My sister tells me it costs $80 to get into Yosemite now and that's if you're lucky enough to get your reservation in for your desired time frame. Back in the late 50's and early 60's when my older brothers got out of school for the summer dad would pack us all up and go to Yosemite for the summer. He would get up and shower at the cam ground and then go to work, come back in the afternoon. Back when they had the amazing firefalls and the water was clean and there was no litter like I hear it is today. Bears and raccoons through the site every night, cool childhood. Got to drive through the redwood tree as a child also.

Also look up Corps of Engineers Parks. There are quite a few around, many are gorgeous, they are cheap to free and typically very lightly used.
