2 Parks near Cortez, Florida
May 2016 - $22.00
Lovely RV park and so close to the Gulf! It's an easy bike ride (or casual walk) over the short bridge to Anna Maria Island. Lots of nearby restaurants on the intercoastal as well as the island. We saw dolphins in the water while crossing the bridge! RV spaces are a bit too close to each other and there is considerable noise from the road if your site is anywhere near. Bathrooms were clean but there was never any hand soap in the ladies restroom sink. Shower pressure was practically nonexistent in the ladies. My husband said the men's worked just fine though. The landscaping was nicely maintained with many beautiful flowers, trees, and shrubs. The pond with the fountain was nice too, having a couple varieties of water fowl visiting. Campsite amenities were fine, full hook-ups in good condition with a picnic table. The site was concrete with brick pavers for the RV pad which was nice; not all of the sites had that. A great price (with the Passport America discount) for a nice place! - new FL camper

This is just a beautiful park in a wonderful location. Do bring your bikes - it is so easy to tour around. There is major shopping east on Cortez and the gulf is only 10 minutes from the park. We rode our bikes daily over the bridge to catch the sunset and tour the back neighborhoods. It can be very hot in the summer as there just isn't a lot of shade. We were praying for a MH to park next to us and provide some shade. ;-) We decided to get an awning shade before we come here next time. I would consider the park bathrooms to be the worst feature - not enough stalls and poorly laid out. Weekend days bring lots of beach traffic getting out again in your MH may be challenging later on a weekend day - most we saw left early. I detected no sulphur smell but we did contend with a lot of no see ums which left us bitten up. THat was surprising as it was very breezy. - Djinfl
Jan 2016 - $66.00
Peak season rate with no discount, $66/day. We were in site 17, near the road, level, nice pavers, pleasant surrounding, picnic table but no grill. Sites are close together but everyone was very friendly and the place was very neat. The hookups are good and we didn't have any issues with sulfur-smelling water. The wifi is sometimes good, sometimes not. Generally, though, not bad at all. Laundry facilities were very good. Dumpsters were way in the back, but not really that far. I liked that it was relatively small park. A friendly white heron sometimes comes by for a handout! One evening we had torrential rains, but it all drained off quite well overall, so we were happy about that.
It's a very good location, within walking distance of a couple of restaurants (we ate at Seafood Shack; good food), ice cream parlor (awesome!), and a couple of tiny stores. Being the closest RV park to Anna Maria, we rode our bikes on to the island which was quite fun and, with a bike lane for most of the way, not too scary. Lots of restaurants, shops, beaches, etc. on the island... easy to make a full day of just looking around. Very, very nice beaches.
I counted off a bit because of the road noise (if you're at the front of the park); it's bearable but bothersome. - RobtL

We have stayed here several times and have always enjoyed our visit. We enjoy the quaint restaurants on the water and watching the fishing boats going and returning from their fishing trips. It is a small campground but very well run and upscale. We will definitely return again many times. - John & Bobbie

A small, well appointed, but high priced park located just over the causeway from Bradenton Beach and the access to Anna Maria Island. Our rate was $998 for two weeks, plus tax. We stayed here over the Christmas holidays and the park was not completely full, although we were told that would change after January 1. Very competent escort to your site who has you in place in a jiffy. A mix of coaches, fivers and TTs. Comfortable paved sites (several available for sale by private owners, $100K plus), good services, though sites are close together. A small heated pool, laundry and fitness room with two exercise machines. Not a lot of walking/biking room in the park because it is so small, but we were able to go outside the gate and walk some of the local neighborhoods. Very few activities other than a meet and greet. Dogs must go into the grassy areas behind the sites and there are walkways to those areas in the corners of the park. Frankly, the web site photos make this park seem better than it really is. We would return, but would explore other parks in the area first. - M&M
Dec 2013 - $80.00
We stayed here in a 5th wheel for 2 months. High priced, over rated park. The site owners and regulars are not very 5th wheel friendly. 75% of the rigs here are high end Class A motor homes. Sites are all back in and tight. Palm trees are nice. There are no activities other then the seasonal guest and their cliques. We did not feel included. $1125 a month. Will not be back. - chief02
