2 Parks near Cortez, Florida
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

Note that the P.A. rate that I paid was for off-season. There are a lot of positives for this park. 1. It's location. You can walk to local restaurants and to Anna Maria Island. 2. It's management. The new manager is very friendly and helpful. 3. It's sites. They are large, wide, paved and level (the first two rows of sites nearest to the highway are an exception - being gravel and close together). 4. It's internal access roads. Also wide and paved. Two RV can easily pass one another on each roadway. There are a few negatives. The first is the restrooms. Yes, they're clean and modern, but are only "token". For example, the mens' restroom had only one toilet and two showers. They are also a long walk from the sites located at the back of the park. The second negative is the water. While each site has two spigots and good water pressure, there is an undeniable smell of Sulphur. It is so strong that you can smell it whenever water is running through a faucet or even on your body after taking a shower. I wanted to ask the manager about the cause of this, but she was not available on the two or three times that I tried to see and/or phone her. - Edwow74

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
