Crump's Landing - All Tiki Bars Aren't on the Coast of Florida
Several months ago, we were doing some research on the Hernando County day trip featured here, we were standing across the river from Crump’s Landing and saw a raging fire destroying the sprawling tiki bar.
The fire seemed to burn out of control before the local fire depart got its equipment in place to douse what was left of Crump’s Landing.
We admit Crump’s Landing wasn’t on our radar before watching the fire across the river from the Monkey Bar and other attractions.
A few months later we decided to see how Crump’s was building back. Perhaps the fastest rebuild of a facility this size took place in a matter of these few months.
Our curiosity led us to check out Crump’s Landing on Homosassa River. They built back better and bigger.
Crump’s Landing Great for Entertainment
Today Crump’s is once again treating guests to a tiki bar experience on several waterside levels and a couple of stages for regular entertainment.
Crump’s has their own gift store, huge parking lot, and multiple indoor and outdoor seating choices. Boaters love to visit for lunch or dinner while cruising the river.
You don’t commonly see tiki bars on a river, but Crump’s makes a perfect exception. Their kitchen offers a wide range of typical bar food, but done better than many in the area.
You can visit Crump’s by heading to Homosassa, Florida, and following the river to their remote location at 11210 W. Halls River Road, Homosassa, FL 34448. That is off US 19.
The Crump’s Landing complex is just five miles south of Crystal River, Florida known as the manatee capital of the world.
The trip from Tampa is about 90 minutes using the Veterans Expressway. From Orlando, the trip would be 3 hours.
Don’t forget, you can make Crump’s Landing part of a day trip coupled with Homosassa Wildlife Park.
