Sarasota Bay is ruled by the resident owned Paradise Bay. Rules, written and unwritten are enforced or ignored with no logic. Although they advertise 300 sites, in reality there are less than 100 as the majority are park models. Office staff in Sara Bay is outstanding, can't say the same for Para Bay. Extended stays here are the norm, and once you are in, you can reserve your site for 3 or more months for next year, prior to Feb. There are no shade trees. HOWEVER..This is a great community for those who return. On site there are bowling, shuffle, bocce, pool leagues, cards and games every night, current movies every Saturday. Boat docks and storage available, $405.00 yearly. Biking distance to Gulf beaches and restaurants. Wireless is absolutely useless, down more than up but Brighthouse is available to install internet or cable usually on a days notice. We have been returning for ten years and have noticed many changes and will return. Have recommended to others. No mail service, but Cortez P.O. is a mile away. Considering all the amenities this is the best value in the area, if you can get in. Para Bay is on the intercoastal and the marina is walking/bicycle distance from the furthest site. We camped at Sarasota Bay RV Park (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is actually very close to Cortez, 2 miles to the great Anna Maria Island beaches, an easy bike. 55 plus community, nice clubhouse with pool tables and a library with Wi-Fi. Children allowed 2 weeks max. No pets. Wi-Fi not available at the RV site. Must make arrangements with Brighthouse to install cable, not good if you are staying only a week or less. A palm tree on each lot. Crushed stone pad with cement patio. Mostly snowbirds with trailers converted to permanent location with cement drives added, but clean and well kept. Looks like they are not allowing any more annual residents to free up space for more transient RV'er. Pool is located at adjacent, related development. Would not stay again, I need my Wi-Fi and cable! We camped at Sarasota Bay RV Park (55+ park) in a Motorhome.
