Well maintained, clean, friendly staff. The park appears to be a former all manufactured home park slowly being converted to all RV. The old concrete pad on my site should be removed and replaced with something newer. All in all, very convenient location to shopping and the beaches. We camped at Winter Quarters Manatee RV in a Motorhome.

Wal-Mart within 5 minute drive. Publix Supermarket just 10 minutes away. Fast food restaurants close by (Wendy, McDonalds, Burger King). Just down the road within 2 miles is an Outback Steakhouse, Applebees, Culver's, and other local sports bars and eateries. Also an Office Depot. The beach is about a 20 minute drive with lots of parking and plenty if places to eat. Recommend "The Beach House" restaurant on Anna Maria Island.

During winter months, great activities going on. Pretty quiet now though. We stay here a couple times a year, love this area. Personnel, office ladies and annuals area always nice, friendly and helpful. We've been here in October, December, January and May. Usually stay two or three weeks each time. Pools are fabulous, just right temp, gorgeous views, plenty of pool lounges, tables and the hot tub always up and running. We camped at Winter Quarters Manatee RV in a Fifth Wheel.

We came in early in Feb 1st 2019 left Mar 31 2019. Gave no discount for coming in early $84.00 per night I paid $1450 for Feb and $1550 for March the manager wouldn't even give me the average of what Feb 2019 would of been. The propane gas is $5.00 gallon way to expensive and over charged on electric. No WiFi to speak of. I told her I wouldn't be coming back next year didn't seem too care because it seem to be all about making money with out regards to the customer they have. The lots have broken concrete and built for smaller campers 20 years ago. Won't be going back. We camped at Winter Quarters Manatee RV in a Motorhome.

Girls at the front desk were extremely rude. I had previously asked for an early check in when I made the reservation because my husband had a flight to catch. I have not encountered such a lack of customer service skills in awhile. Park was ok nothing special. Will not stay here again. We camped at Winter Quarters Manatee RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Will not return.... this park butts right up to interstate I75 and the noise is horrific anywhere in the park if you are in travel trailer of any kind. Hard to get to any beaches, or shopping as the traffic is so thick. Staff in office are not friendly...they act like someone is making them work there. Also, there were bikes being stolen during the night and staff didn't want this info shared....shame on them. This is not a gated park and there is no security... anyone can come and go as they please. We have stayed in far better resorts and will not be returning to this one and that was voiced by several others. We camped at Winter Quarters Manatee RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Basically this is a very basic campground with full hook ups. The campsite was very small with full timers on each side encroaching on the campsite with cars, golf carts, side by side, furniture, various patio furniture and other personal items. The site was a back in that was adequate for our 40' Class A. The site was broken asphalt. As mentioned in other reviews and is obvious from the map RT 75 is bordering the property and is very loud everywhere on the property. After a walk around the property, we stayed in the RV for the remainder of our stay. The property is not protected by gate or any other security that we could see. This is an Encore property with many seasonal and full time residents. Most sites are crowded with personal vehicles and belongings. There is a Walmart down the street at Cypress Creek Blvd and RT 64. Stay there for a quick overnight. Will not return nor would I recommend this campground.

Unfortunately, the overall condition is deteriorating (we have stayed 3 times over 3 years). The restrooms and showers need some serious attention. On the plus side, the location is very good ... Walmart, Publix, and HomeDepot within 10 minutes ... excellent beaches within 45 minutes. We camped at Winter Quarters Manatee RV in a Motorhome.

We were in a premium site but were still very close to I75. The noise from the highway is difficult for sleeping if you like it quiet. We left a day early because of that. You're also packed like sardines next to other RVs. You have to empty your own trash at the dumpsters by the exit of the facility. I would expect trash service at the rate they charge. Overall, the worst place we stayed at in our 3 month trek throughout Florida. We camped at Winter Quarters Manatee RV in a Motorhome.

We are staying from late Dec through early April. We had a waterfront site which has beautiful views of the lake and community building with is really pretty with the light reflecting on the lake at night. Noise from I-75 is constant, but tends to blend into the background. It can be annoying at times though. The location is very convenient with lots of restaurants and shopping opportunities within a 5 to 25 minute ride. About 40 minutes to the sugar sand beaches on the gulf. The sites vary in the campground - some, like ours have been upgraded with full pads and paved drives. Most are fairly tight. Some are pretty much just gravel with a small patio pad. Two nice pools that are well heated. Lots of activities, though we did not participate in many. Laundry facilities are pretty good. There are a lot of permanent sites with Park models, but there are still lots of RV's in the park. Lots of RV's that come for 3-6 months through the winter like we did. We enjoy the waterfront site and looked around the area to find something similar but with larger sites and a little further from the interstate traffic noise, but didn't find anything better. This is basically our winter home. The location in Bradenton and close to Sarasota as well as family a few miles north of here make this best choice currently available for us. If we found a RV resort with waterfront sites, a little more elbow room and less highway noise, we would be interested in moving, as long as it was in the same general area, but for now we are going to come back for a second season. We camped at Winter Quarters Manatee RV in a Fifth Wheel.

This campsite is just a few miles from our home. We used this campsite to do a test run of our camper to see what we needed before our trip to Tennessee in December. The campsite is a mix of RV and permanent mobile homes. The pool was heated and very refreshing. The restrooms were clean. They do have a small dog park that we could take our dogs to and let them run around off of their leash. The campsite we stayed in was a bit tricky to get backed into. Being only my 2nd time backing up my 34ft travel trailer and being it was at night in the dark did not help any. We got it backed in and all hooked up in the dark, and we stayed for 2 nights. I would recommend this campground to others that will be in the area. We camped at Winter Quarters Manatee RV in a Travel Trailer.

It's a super convenient location and some parts of the park are very pretty. We stayed here a couple of years ago at Christmas time. It was full then, not so during the summer. Everyone is friendly. I feel the area we stayed in could definitely use some sprucing up. Our picnic table was in bad shape, the site marker was down and tossed in the back, the area just looked a bit run down. There is an extra daily "resort" fee and while it is only 4.00 I had to wonder what it was for. You pay extra for wifi and cable if you want it. I felt a bit like a second class citizen for using Passport America. The dog park had been improved from our last visit but it's still a bit rough for dogs to get any exercise. I don't know what other surface could be used though. It is well shaded. We camped at Winter Quarters Manatee RV in a Motorhome.

The check-in experience was good. We were shown sites that we could choose from. Since we were using the Passport America discount of $18.50 per night, we had to stay in the standard sites right next to I-75. It was noisy with the constant traffic day and night. The site was asphalt but it is very aged and crumbled. Electric, water, and sewer service was fine. There are some nicer sites on the north side of the resort that surround the lake. It is a little quieter in those locations too. We camped at Winter Quarters Manatee RV in a Motorhome.

If you like a true NYC deli, visit Sol's NYC Deli in Sarasota. It is at the intersection of Washington and Main in downtown Sarasota. The cheesecake is the best anywhere!!!

Very nice park with wide paved roads. Sites are situated around a very nice pond and even though the sites are a little too tight for us, they are average in width, length was plenty for our motorhome and tow. Only negative is the road noise as this park is adjacent to Rt 75 so the road noise is present all the time. Many say you get use to it and it does not bother them, but my wife and I like it a little quieter. We camped at Winter Quarters Manatee RV in a Motorhome.
