We are in a quiet residential neighborhood on about an acre of property. The spur to park your RV is tucked in to a spot next to and under oak trees that are well trimmed with no low hanging branches. The spur is 20'x30' mostly level and is located perpendicular to and to the side of our RV carport.
Our neighborhood is surrounded by wooded areas and thus there is the possibility of seeing some wildlife such as turkeys, bobcats and coyotes. We have a swing hanging from a large oak tree and you are welcome to use it.
Our house rules are pretty simple.
1. We can offer 30amp power, but it is located approximately 50' away so extension cords are required. The hookup for the city water is about 35' away and also requires plenty of hose.
2. If you decide to use a generator that is fine with the exception of the noisier types will need to be shut down by 9:30 p.m. as a courtesy to our neighbors.
3. Pets are welcome and we please ask that you keep them on a leash at all times and please pick up after them.
4. Alcohol is allowed as long as you are a responsible drinker and do not cause problems. Smoking is allowed only in your RV as we don't want to have to pick up butts from the ground.
There is a paved street behind our house at the rear of our property where the parking spur is located and it is accessed privately without having to go through our yard. It is a gravel drive where you will back up or pull in up a slight slope and then make a turn backing/pulling in to the spur. The spur has trees surrounding it and are they are well back from the parking area as well as no low hanging branches. The spur is set well away from the house and is actually prepped for an eventual carport. It is pretty level and is located perpendicular to the side of where our RV is parked under a carport.
30amp power is available but located about 50' from the spur, so additional cord will be required. Water is about 35' and requires a length of hose to reach as well.
If in a class A, B, C or a truck camper without a toad, you can either drive in and back out or back-in and drive out... it's up to you. Otherwise, this is a back-in spot located behind our house on a spur off of our RV Carport. Once backed in to the spot, you can unhook your tow vehicle and park it in front of it. If pulling a towed vehicle, you can unhook on the street and then back-in your RV and park your vehicle in front of it. It does require backing up a slight incline and making a turn.
We sometimes have appointments during the day so may need to be in touch to coordinate your arrival times so we can assist you with backing in your RV to the spot.
We are located near the Homosassa State Wildlife Park where there is an under water observatory to view manatees and see other wild life native to Florida. Our area offers great little places to eat locally caught seafood and we have some of the best flats fishing in the area. Kayaking, golfing, hiking and biking trails are near by. We are a few miles from the Withlacoochee State Forest where there are opportunities for taking off-road quiet drives. Crystal River is only five miles away and has some of the best kayaking available for seeing up close and personal the manatees at the Three Sisters Springs. The Chassahowitzka River is twelve miles to the south and also offers great kayaking as well.
A grocery store is only three miles away.
We enjoyed our stay at the Quiet Little Spur and touring around the Crystal River area for a couple days. Loved meeting our hosts. Appreciated them sharing their little paradise with us. Took advantage of topping off our water tank which we really appreciated.
Wonderful host,they were so friendly and kind. We enjoy the great conversations we’ve had with them. It was just great.

What a great quiet spot, very convenient to Weeki Wachee, Homosassa and Crystal River. And the hosts are just so very nice and accommodating! Hope we have the opportunity to return some day!
We arrived late afternoon to a warm welcome from the Sandbirds, was easy to find and relatively easy back in to a level elevated site. Quiet spot and slept great on a cool Florida spring evening. We have a nice chat in the morning and shared experiences, camping, adventures and general life. Great hosts, and a great stop if you're in the area. We hope to see the Sandbirds at our host site in the future if they find themselves in our neck of the woods.
Two nights on the spur with lots of shade and easy access. Next to agreat little town for dining out and shopping.
But the best part of the Little Spur were the host very accommodating and just good friendly people.
TheSandbirds are well seasoned RV'ers as are we which made it a fun stop comparing travel adventures, both good and not so good. Will definitely make a return visit.
This is a quiet and safe location. They have lots of experience with RVs and were willing to share their knowledge and as newbies we were delighted to have met them and learned new things.
