Your hosts at Lake Rousseau RV Resort want to invite you to a feast for your eyes and a dose of calm for your spirit under our vast canopy of ancient live oak trees here at the water's edge. Come drown worms and catch trophy-sized bass, crappie, and bluegill or plan a visit that includes kicking back on the porch and reading a good book. From breath-taking sunrises at the cove to gorgeous sunsets over the lake, your days can be as active or as lazy as you like.
We are a year-round destination resort on the Nature Coast of Florida, where you will experience a corner of the world filled with great scenery, heron, egrets, and other abundant wildlife; there’s a designated birding trail near the Inglis Dam, just two miles from our Park. Bring your camera and capture some of the greatest photo-ops imaginable. We are located in a secluded, unspoiled area only 10 miles northeast of Crystal River and 10 miles southwest of Dunnellon. In our area you will find modern stores, quaint shops, and friendly people. For Golf Lovers we have several affordable golf courses in the area. We also have Boat Tours, Airboat Rides, Fishing Charters, Guide Service, Scalloping Trips, and Manatee Tours.
If boating and fishing are what you like, our 3,500-acre dam-controlled lake is one of the finest in the state for trophy-sized bass and great crappie and bluegill. Lake Rousseau is fed by the Withlacoochee River and the natural springs of the Rainbow River, which flow into the Withlacoochee at Dunnellon. These two rivers provide Lake Rousseau with an abundant supply of water. While fully navigable, Lake Rousseau is not traveled at high speeds due to the presence of stumps, so your fishing won't be disturbed by jet skis or wake from others passing by at break-neck pace. We have our own boat launch. Just two miles from our park, there's a public brackish water launch below the dam, where you can put in and reach the Gulf of Mexico, as well as a second freshwater launch into the lake. So, fresh water or salt water, we have access to both.
If socializing is more your style, you'll love our friendly residents and regulars and may want to spend your time playing bingo or cards, or just visiting with your new neighbors. Many of our guests have been coming here for several years and will welcome you to join the fun here on beautiful Lake Rousseau!
We have a bait and tackle shop and heated swimming pool on site. Our sparkling bathhouses, laundry, and lovely clubhouse will provide you all the amenities of home. Our park is within easy driving distance of many of Central Florida's main attractions as well as local ones, including viewing West Indian manatees in their natural habit. We’re within two hours’ drive of Orlando or Tampa, and are about thirty minutes from Ocala and just over an hour from Gainesville. Whether it's for a day, a week, or the season, you'll be glad you came!
