Crystal River...Possible Camping

Hello everyone. So i am a grad student in Georgia who loves paddling. I am hoping to make a trip down to Crystal River area in February to do some manatee spotting and perhaps camp on an island for a night with my girlfriend. I was wondering if any one can help me out with any spots that would be good for camping via a paddle. I have found some but limited information in this area about Shell Island, Reports are that its buggy and privately owned. So any information on camp spots in the crystal river area via a paddle would be great. Any help or reference would be greatly appreciated! Thank you. Also very cool community you have here.

Florida in general is not too buggy in the winter months. Still bugs but nowhere as bad as summer. We usually go to Georgia to camp lol. Just camped last weekend in the Tampa area closer to Ocala near the Chaz and minimal bugs. Just keep tent closed while you are in or out of it. Just my opinion but skip the bug spray as Florida mosquitos laugh at it.
