The river is beautiful and we saw a couple of manatees and beautiful birds. My only negative thing that I saw was a very small island with four stressed out monkeys on it. I love wildlife but this was more like a side show attraction!...More
We visited Homosassa whilst sightseeing in Florida. As it was late afternoon we decided to go back and hire a pontoon on the river as it looked so beautiful. Not having done this before we didn’t realise we needed ID to hire one so we’re...More
We put our pontoon boat in on the Homosassa River to get out to the Gulf. It is well marked and easy to navigate. After the Gulf we come back to the Springs where the water is 72 degrees all year round. In the winter...More
Hey, if you really want to experience "Old Florida" this may be your spot. Slow and easy going through the week, but come weekends and holidays it explodes with locals and tourists alike. They come to not only experience the Manatees, but to enjoy the...More
We take the pontoon boat on the river frequently. The entire experience on the Halls River with the Manatee and all the wonderful restaurants with river parking and tons of activity make this a must visit place. We like it so much we finally bought...More

Have repeatedly stayed here over the last 10 years . The recent purchase by Sun Communities has been a great improvement , pool, club house , landscaping signage all have been improved . I recommend over any other RV Resort in the area.
There's a terrific put-in place and it's free to use. It's at Riversport Kayaks where they do tours, sell kayaks and rent them, but they allow individuals to use their ramp that is safe. You can call them at 352-621-4972 for... More
There's a terrific put-in place and it's free to use. It's at Riversport Kayaks where they do tours, sell kayaks and rent them, but they allow individuals to use their ramp that is safe. You can call them at 352-621-4972 for exact directions from where you are. If you have a GPS, the address is 5297 S. Cherokee Way, Homosassa, FL. Once you're there, and put the kayaks in the water, you'll turn right and will immediately see what's referred to as Bird Island - where Spider monkeys live and play. Circle this island for good photos. When you're ready, just turn right and continue on the Homosassa River all the way to the Wildlife Park where you'll see a platform. The manatees are still around in great numbers - We watched them swim under our boats the other day. What fun. I know you'll have a great trip. Best, Arline
