I live at a dead end on a canal that leads out to the Crystal River. There is room on the side of the house where you can park and sit by the water or on the dock. There is also a fire ring near the dock. Manatee and dolphin can often be spotted. Awesome place to kayak ! I may not be home when you arrive so please text me at (352) 586-8838 with any questions. You don’t need to ‘check in’ as I have friends that come and go. Please be considerate of my neighbors. Thank you. Suggested Local Attractions:Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. Fishing. Kayak and boat rentals. Swim with the manatee. Scalloping charters in summer

Empty nester that travels a lot Details: I own a business that lets me travel and just purchased a Ram Promaster to make adventures easier. I have taken in Couchsurfers for a few years and met some incredible people from around the world. For now we are trapped in the US so figured I’d see it and offer a place for others. Home Town: I live in Crystal River, Florida. It is the manatee capitol of the world. Lots of tourist come to swim with them. Otherwise just a small town north of TampA Favorite Boondocking Locations: Working on this. Skills or Expertise to Share: I am an experienced backpacker and still Like to be in the wilderness.

    Easy access, great communications with the host, fantastic location on the river. Lots of shaded room for RVs and very quiet neighborhoods The host was kind enough to let us use her kayak to slowly paddle down the river. A great stay recommended without any reservation

    Super generous host with a fabulously private and quiet spot right on the water. We loved riding bikes to town and kayaking in Kings Bay to view the sea cows! Absolutely recommend!

    J was the consummate host. The location was amazing on the corner of 2 canals off of Crystal River. We were able to use her double kayak and spent 2.5 hours exploring the waterways. Parking was private and shaded with an available fire pit and Adirondack chairs. We will be back if we are in the area again. Highly recommend!
