Very Pleasant Combo of Old Florida with Modern Recreation Complex
We're brand new to rv'ing and this was our first stop. Got a great rate with Passport America and management assigned us a nice site that was dry for a beginner, but with nice lake views. This is an older park with some permanent residents, but all sites are clean and neat and there are upgrades being planned for concrete pads. Some have already been installed. This is a wooded piney park with lots of dripping Spanish moss right on the Myakka River. The roads are narrow, but we managed fine. There were even a few big rigs camping near us. It's very quiet off-season which was what we were seeking. I imagine it's very busy in winter because there are 600 sites. What's great is the recreation complex in front. Beautiful large new pool with hot tub, showers, tons of lovely new chairs and shaded lounge areas. It even has an adjoining splash park which we tried out even though we're 50 something! There's horseshoe pits, a giant chess game, and a putting green. Weekly activities are few off- season, water aerobics, cards etc. There is a river dock with fish cleaning station. The location is about 12 minutes to the island of Venice and its lovely beaches and historic downtown. We had the wrong propane line, so we dined out at Brewburgers - great sandwich and burger joint nearby. Snook Haven is 2 minutes away for old Florida menu. We had dinner at sister restaurant Sharkys on the Venice Pier and it was really good with nice service. Also caught a quick $10 lunch at Ristorante San Marco that was outstanding. Venice is very quaint. It was really pleasant to meet so many nice people, both at the park and the tourist areas. My only caution would be the Florida wildlife. Look out for fire ant mounds, a common Florida problem in a sandy area. There was a very small resident gator, but he was very shy. It's very easy to bring your dogs and walk around the park.
Very Pleasant with nice new amenities
Older Florida RV park with a mix of permanent residents and rv campers. Beautiful new pool complex, splash park, horseshoe pits, putting green, and fitness center. Sites are mostly sandy grass, but they are advertising upgrades and there are some concrete pads. Trails are narrow and the park is large. Really nice at this time of year because it is off season. There is a dock and boat launch on the river with fish cleaning station. Beware of fire ants and a resident gator or too although we did not meet him. Everyone we encountered was very friendly. The location is about 15 minutes from the island of Venice and the beaches for a change of pace if needed. Full hookup sites, but wifi was not provided. We used our cellphones as hotspots with no problem. I liked the old Florida feel of the park which admittedly is unlike the front recreational area. Several staff people worked daily to maintain the property.
