This is an extremely well maintained class A Resort. Staff was helpful and friendly at check in, and escorted us to our site. The interior roads are paved and wide, so big rig access is good. Our pull in site was very spacious, plenty of space for our towed, but there was little privacy between sites, and no shade trees. Patio furniture was the absolute bare minimum, which we found surprising at a Resort of this caliber. Our level pad was lovely brick pavers, and it was very quiet and peaceful both day and night. We had a river front site, well worth the extra money, as we had a truly wonderful view of the lovely Myakka River through our front windshield. The spotless bathrooms and laundry are located in the clubhouse, along with a fitness center. A pool, spa, pickle ball and tennis courts are located behind the clubhouse. There is a security gate 24/7 which we appreciated. Very pet friendly with a fenced dog run and plenty of pick up bags and disposal stations located around the Resort. Wifi and AT&T were both good. We would stay here again. - tobyjug

Price reflects monthly rate for December 2015 for a front-in site facing out towards the river walk and river. We additionally paid $248 for electricity for the month. Class A only resort with superb amenities and activities. Owners live on site and are very hands on and cordial. There is a security gate and large dog run. Streets are paved with concrete sidewalks and brick sites. Some sites are privately owned with casitas. Park is fairly convenient to shopping and restaurants. We would definitely return. - BigRigTravelerUSA

This is first class Class A resort. This was our second visit and we stayed for a week in early September. The resort has a feeling of seclusion along the beautiful Myakka River but is convenient to the amenities and beaches of the Port Charlotte area.
The resort is well laid out and immaculately cared for. The pool and club house has almost anything you would need; sunset patio bar with BBQ, pool table, laundry, fitness center, washrooms and showers, spa, etc. We especially enjoyed the boardwalk along the river and the large dog park.
We are already planning our next trip. - User1230

First up, would I stay here again.. absolutely. The rate reflects the price for a week long stay. Convenient to the training sports park for the Tampa bay Rays and local amenities. 50 amp service, pet friendly, good WIFI coverage from both Verizon and the paid provider. We had just purchased our motor home and this was our first RV park location. We lived in the area and picked this park based on location and the ability to get set up in our new home. The park has excellent WIFI coverage from Verizon and 5 meg download speeds from the JABBA wifi provider which is a little pricey. No free WIFI is available at the site but free WIFI is available in the club house. The very professional & friendly staff is excellent and the park is well maintained with the streets in pretty good shape for the most part. Nice and wide for large rigs and few, if any, bad spots. The site is considered grass but most of the grass has worn away from heavy use which leaves mostly sand and dirt that is easily tracked into the coach even with an outdoor rug to mitigate for the lack of a pad. However, the site is very spacious and very well maintained with rock solid 50 amp electric and the water pressures were very good. There are a lot of permanent modular homes in this park but it is still a quiet and very safe location. No garbage pick up at the site, you have to take your garbage to a central location near the entrance. The garbage drop off site is large and it's not difficult to use with plenty of space to turn around in. Overall, this is a great park for the most part and would have received 5 stars in every category if the site had a concrete pad and garbage pick up had been provided. The price was a little high for being in April and charged as peak season which should have ended at the end of March when most snowbirds head North but that seems to be standard for Florida's west coast parks. We stayed 2 weeks. - Denny C

This was an acceptable park, especially since our choices were limited in the Fort Meyers area due to availability in the peak season. We had a standard back in site, dirt with concrete picnic table pad. Getting in was somewhat tricky due to the narrow distance between the power pole and keeping the door side wheels off the concrete pad to assure being level, as well as a caution not to back the trailer wheels over the buried water lines near the rear of the site. Mostly park models in our area of the park. The staff was friendly and professional. There seemed to be plenty of activities for long term residents, mainly snowbirds. The pool always seemed crowded and there were pickle ball and tennis games played at courts across from us each night. This area is not as flashy as the resort areas further south on both the Gulf and Atlantic Florida coasts, but not bad. There are plenty of eating and shopping options not far away. - one_strange_texan

This is an Encore park with 500+ sitrs but most are park models. There are standard, elite and preier sites for RVs. The premier are very large but all in open grassy field. We had standard site with a concrete pad for picnic table and sand parking area. Many of these sites are large. We were able to have shade most of the time and get satellite from our roof mount dish. The pool is adequate. Hot tub nice but small for the size of park. There are about 50 fulltime residents who are friendly. Staff very nice. Summer months and mosquitos make sitting side mostly uncomfortable. The roads are very good, drain good during summer storms. The park is quiet and convienent to all shopping in Port Charlotte. - venice

First of all, call to get all the details about wifi and cable. Deceptive advertising is becoming rampant! 2nd, we were pre-assigned a site, but when we went to it, it was already occupied. They gave us, at no extra cost, a "premium" riverside site @ no extra charge..........."Thule Marsh" side is more appropriate. I had to spray ant hills, the water connection leaked a steady stream, every general rule in their pamphlet was broken by most, if not all permanent residents. Wifi is available, at extra cost, and somehow, they screwed it up 2 straight days, to where it was out 2 hrs one afternoon and out all night, from 5pm until we left the next morning! The cable TV is also an extra charge, but OTA is just fine! The managers don't seem to know what is going on, and are never available. Tried to call, but the phone was on answering machine, every time! Suggestion.............Go somewhere else!!! - Dennis H

This park is small which makes for a homey and cozy environment. The club house, screened deck and pool were nice and made for casual community socializing. The sites were comfortable and the views of the river pretty. - The Ellis Family

Girl at desk on Feb 10 at 1pm was eating her lunch while we were waiting in line for another rep. When she was done eating she took care of us with an attitude like we were a bother to her. The other rep was being nice to the people. This place is gated so you have to enter code to enter. Laundry and restrooms are locked and you need code to enter (I don't know why those are locked when you have to know code to enter past gate at entrance.) You need to buy a card for $3.00 to do laundry. Then you have to pay $3.00 to put money on card to wash or dry clothes (1.50 each). About 85% permanents here. Most are nice. But several were junky. Many, many trees providing shade. Park is next to river. They have a nice picnic area there. No cable TV but got several TV channels over the air. They do a lot of activities here. I liked that this resort was away from city traffic but not too far away. - RonH999

The Rambler's Rest RV Resort is located about 4-miles south of I-75, at exit 191 (River Road) on I-75. The park entrance will be on the east side of River Road (left turn if coming from I-75). The entrance comes up on you fairly fast. Our GPS took us right to the gate. After turning into the entrance immediately veer to your right into a large parking lot used for registration. The office is located on the other side of the main road across from the registration lot. Rambler's Rest is part of the Encore/Thousand Trails chain. In general, the resort looks good and seems genuinely cared for but some of the seasonal sites look run-down. I didn't see any concrete pads and our site (W-138) was mostly grass over a small patch of old gravel with full hookups. The park does not offer cable TV but we were able to bring in some local over-the-air channels. If you want to use your satellite dish ask for a spot in the "newer" W-section. Most of those sites will have a clear view of the sky for either roof mounted or portable dishes. The trade off will be little shade. And it gets hot in September. The park is pet friendly and the roads are easily navigable even for big rigs like ours. I had to laugh when I tried the WiFi it offered us complimentary 10-minutes of use before asking us to pay. We opted to use our Verizon hotspot instead. River Road can be busy but we heard absolutely no road noise, just the occasional airplane going over. Site spacing is about average, maybe a bit above. But beware if it rains hard as the ground will become saturated fairly easily. Jack pads are a must. This was our first time at Rambler's Rest and as we were visiting family during the day we didn't have an opportunity to check out the amenities at the resort. We may stay here again. - rk911

This was our 2nd visit. It's a wonderful little park with lots of full timers in Park models scattered around. There are also lots of seasonal folks. So as a transient, you get squeezed into an available slot. Ours was tight, the neighbors in a trailer on one side had previously set up a screen tent partially on our site and almost on the power/water pedestal. Someone at an adjacent campsite had taken the picnic table, so we had none. My point is: BEFORE accepting and going to a site, take the time here to drive to it and check it out. Oh, yeah, the sewer hookup was so far away, I couldn't reach it even with the extension hose I carry. Last time we were here, we had trouble finding the sewer as well. So when we come again, I will ask for 3 available sites and drive to them and look before blindly accepting. OK, that's the real downside. On the plus side, they have put a lot of money into the club house, pool, hot tub and new sewer connectors. Folks we met were all friendly and staff was very helpful. With PA rates, it is well worth the inconvenience. We will be back. - Too-wow

We found this place looking through our Camp Club USA book. While it's mostly a mobile home park, they have sites set aside for RV's at the front of the park next to the street. That said, I was surprised that traffic noise wasn't a problem for us. I'm not 100% certain but I don't think they allow pets so if you're a pet owner, call ahead. Finding someone in the office can sometimes be a bit of a challenge but if you're just looking for an affordable no-frills place to park your RV in Venice, this place just might fit the bill. Of all the towns in Florida we have been to, Venice is the cleanest town we've seen. One day while driving the five miles to the beach to hunt for fossilized sharks teeth, I counted ten pieces of litter -- nothing big, candy wrappers, etc. It's a tidy town of tidy homes and Florida Pines Park is no exception. If it is possible to be too clean, this park may have found that level. I felt like a slob when I kicked my flip flops off like I always do next to the steps before going into our RV. Driving around the park, there is very little ornamentation outside the mobiles. You won't find a lot of tiki lights and stuff cluttered around RV's and mobiles here. Venice is a lovely town of really friendly people who will actually let you out in traffic. Smoking and dogs weren't allowed on any of the beaches we visited. Speaking of beaches, they are beautiful. Some of them are a little rocky but still lovely. The first time you reach down and pick up a whole fossilized sharks tooth, you will remember that feeling for a long time. The ocean is a gorgeous turquoise and watching the dolphins from the wharf was perfect. All in all, Venice is one of my favorite towns. If you're tired of litter and stepping on dog "bombs" left on beaches by lazy owners, Venice could be one of your favorite towns as well. - Travelfish

It's a Retreat, not a Resort. If you're comfortable boondocking, you won't give the entry road a second thought. (Keep to the middle of the road - there are some thick low hanging branches on the right side.) If you are a person who isn't happy without a paved road and a concrete pad, I'd recommend moving on down the road. Once you're in, the grounds are *amazing*. Tons of old growth, nature trails along the Myakka river, it's quite lovely - though it borders on being *outrageously* expensive. (Worth it to me, because it was the last place that had room for the weekend...) - YarrVee.com

If you like rustic, this is better than a 5. That being said, it was hard for us to get passed the dust and ruts in the narrow 3/4 mile drive into the campground.And, be extremely aware of overhanging tree branches. The poor fellow who camped next to us lost his awning. The sites are somewhat small and just grass, but mostly level.The restroom/showers are adequate.We found the staff good natured and helpful. - manarkee

Seems like a RV park on the downhill slide. Worst water I ever encountered, hopefully doesn't have anything to do with the site waste water treatment facility. One guy said the whole town of Venice has bad tasting and smelling water, so who knows. It literally tastes like pond water. I'd say this park is barely big rig friendly. Careful of low hanging trees the entire 1/2 mile trip to your campsite AND within the campground itself. Some of these thick branches can cause some major damage and I'm shocked they haven't remedied the problem. It really shows the laziness when that they can't take a small amount of time to trim up their tree branches. Also be ready to have your fillings shook out from the huge potholes in the road if it rains prior to you arriving or leaving. They charge way too much. Wi-Fi is about a 3 out of 10 and comes with many limitations. There are better parks in the area, just search slightly further out, it will be fine because not much to do around Venice anyways. Won't be back. Rate reflects monthly. Stayed here in a motorhome. - Johnnyboy21

Called ahead and asked about accommodations for our 40 foot RV. Told we could be accommodated. We drove there and were greeted less than kindly. The woman at the counter looked out the window at our coach maybe not realizing I was already at the desk and said "So this is it huh?!" I waited a while before she came around to ask what I needed. She then proceeded to tell me they couldn't put us on this park. I asked why they didn't tell me this when I called. She didn't have a good answer. There was inadequate space to turn around once we had pulled in. This should NOT be listed as an overnight accommodation in any of the RV listings!! - RNRVtravler

A couple of areas that weren't perfect but the service and helpfulness more than made up for it. Stayed for over 3 months due to medical issues and we were treated very well.
Power wasn't very good. Meter showed a consistent 108 volts so we were careful with what appliances we were running. Needed three 10' lengths of sewer hose, slightly up hill at our site (G28).
Mostly seasonal sites. Expect winter time would be hard to book.
A couple of pull throughs.
Would definitely stay again. - MissingLinc

This is an old park with mostly full time residents. As someone else said there is a junky sewer pond. The people were nice. The were just a couple activities each month. Pine Island is rural with not much to do. - Red dog mom

Rate reflected is a monthly rate. The park is older has about 150 spaces with 50 saved for travelers. All other sites have full timers in it. The sites are average size and the park is friendly. A few park get together are planned throughout the month. The pool and hot tub are on the small size but never crowded and kept very clean. The park could use some nicer patio chairs around the pool.The entrance is gated and you use a key pad to drive in. The lots are grass and each one has concrete patio. There is a laundry but I never used it. - Bakmm

We were here as a 'guest' of Thousand Trails. You'll need a long sewer hose. Many of the sites have semi-permanent residents, but there was also a nice number of temporary sites. We stayed 4 nights. - Bastion

Convenient location just a few miles off I-75. New cement patio at site. Office, pool, clubhouse, etc all like new and in beautiful condition. Lots of well cared for trees and shrubs all throughout the beautiful park. On canal. Nice area to have a group campfire. Adjacent road is busy however it does quiet down at night. - Todd Fogelberg

We actually stayed here for 2 months (feb and mar). It was our 2nd time there and have enjoyed both times. The amenities were good and the people very friendly. We have already booked to go back next year and stay the entire winter. We made some great friends there. Comcast is the only vendor for internet,TV, unless you have a satellite which we will have before next year. Very convenient to supermarkets, shops, restaurants and downtown. Lots to do in the area. - Bawaddell
