Wonderful place to camp! Try to get a place a long the river for best experience. The people working there are really fantastic. Also kids loved the pouch you can buy at the store that makes the campfire turn different colors!!!

This is a nice, somewhat shaded campground with rv slots right on the river. Nice cooking fire ring, cement patio equipped with metal table and 4 chairs. Full hookups, slightly private not terribly close to each other. We enjoyed playing pool each night at the recent center. Swimming pool, laundry, movie library, tv lounge, ice, a small selection of grocery... More

We stayed at here for a return visit from Last year after a somewhat good experience last year. On the way up we recalled the attitude of the owner, Erin Nielsen, and how it wasn't the best and hoped she was having a bad weekend. Well her attitude has not changed and it's even worse. Unfortunately there was a wildfire... More

Stayed for 2 nights at a riverside slot and it was very scenic ! The campground was well maintained and the hostess very helpful and friendly. Only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. Recommend highly !

We have had numerous family reunions at BRB over the years. Our family reunion is scheduled for the weekend of July 28 through July 31 2016. We always reserve early in January for cabins and RV spots. We booked and paid for one night in early January for an RV site for Friday and Saturday night. Never received a confirmation...not...

First impression of this BRB / KOA upon pulling off the Hwy. was how tremendously outdated the camp ground felt. This may appeal to some, but it isn’t my taste, we’re talking 1940’s. The 15 foot long driveway straight of the 50mph+ Hwy pulls immediately to the Reception / Store shack where you are expected to check in. Oh wait….... More

I don't recall which site we had - we were here in early September of 2014 (and this thing only lets me input 2015, so it's labeled incorrectly), but it was alongside the river. I remember the lady who ran the place being really friendly and helpful, there was good wifi (if you needed it), there were REALLY nice bathhouses-... More

I stayed in one of the pet friendly cabins. It was very comfortable and extremely clean! The setting near the river and under lots of trees was beautiful! Each cabin had its own firepit and table to sit outside. I would definitely stay here again.

We were unable to detach our travel trailer from our vehicle. My husband asked the owner to borrow a hammer to loosen the hitch. Ray Nielsen, the owner, came with the hammer and a crowbar, and worked on the problem for a half hour, and finally got it unhitched. We were so grateful. He also suggested repair places for a...

We came accross the BRB Crystal River KOA resort when we were looking for a place that we could stay with our dog. We also wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of staying in a ski resort. What we got was better than we could ever imagine. Our cabin was warm and welcoming, the kitchen was in... More
