The only way to describe this place in three sentences is to use massive, run-on sentences. So here goes: this place has two pools, a three-story water slide, hot tubs, an exercise facility (with over 130 exercise programs), a steam room and sauna, an on-site restaurant and bar, and live entertainment almost every night. Plus, it has facilities for billiards, volleyball, Frisbee golf, mini-golf, pickleball, tennis, shuffleboard, horseshoes, bocce ball, lawn bowling, something called petanque, and something else called ga-ga ball, which seems to involve throwing a ball into an octagon with a mass of old geezers and letting them grapple for possession. It even has a track for racing radio-controlled model cars. It boasts over 150 activities, including biking; jogging; fishing in a private lake; poker; bingo; woodworking, lapidary, and stained glass shops; music ensembles; and numerous educational classes, including music lessons and computer operations; as well as a huge variety of special interest clubs (like quilting, music, and every other hobby one can think of). It even has its own ham radio club and club station, W4SNF. And, there are about a gazillion golf courses in the area. And, the resort is only a few minutes from downtown Sarasota, Siesta Key and other islands, and countless, beautiful beaches. As one of the reviewers said, "If you're bored here, it's your own fault." And to top it off, the bathrooms and showers are immaculate and the people are as friendly as we've ever met anywhere. (OK, that was more than three sentences.)

But still, we're not sure it's our kind of place (and hence the "8" rating). To me, it feels like Manhattan--lots to do, but no respite from the oppressive commotion. Would we come here again? We're not sure. But if you're looking for a place with great winter weather and a surplus of ways to occupy yourself, this place would be hard to beat. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Clean, well run park, large pull throughs, easy in, easy out, easy access to the freeway and shopping. I would stay here again. They have every activity a person could want. Think of Sun City for RV'ers. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Go to Venice for a day and St. Armands. You won't regret it.

This is our second year at Sun n Fun. Both years we've stayed for 3 months. The rates vary as follows:
3 months = $55/day
4 months = $47/day
5 months = $41/day
6 months = $37/day
9 months = $30/day
We have been RVing for 5 years and this is the first place that we knew we were going back to a year in advance. Of all the places we've been to so far this has the most activities. If your bored here it's your own fault. Besides all of the things you can do inside the park it is located just 20 minutes from downtown Sarasota which adds to its appeal. My wife likes to shark tooth hunt and Venice beach (one of the better ones for that) is about a half hours drive. Siesta beach was ranked 14th in the world and best in the US last year and is only 25 minutes away. One of our favorite night activities is to visit the hot tubs before bedtime. They have two huge hot tubs, one at 98 degrees and the other at 104. They have a huge Olympic sized heated pool and a multimillion dollar exercise facility. There are more "permanent" residents who live in park models than RVers. But even the park model owners have to be out of the park for 3 months out of the year due to zoning requirements. This park definitely gets busy the week before and after Christmas. Although this year it's a little slower probably due to the warm weather all over the country. We love this place but it isn't cheap. And what can you say about Floridas weather. Sarasota probably has the best I've seen in the country. The park is so large that it even has it's own wood working shop which you can use for a small donation. In two of the activity centers they have singing and comedy acts that appear from time to time. The bar located by the hot tubs has bands, food and bingo just to name a few. They recently added some park models which reduced some of the storage space. I think the park would like to go 100% park models just from a maintenance point of view but I don't know if that will ever happen. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Would highly recommend you give this place a try. We did and love it.

Nice park with a lot of amenities ....2 large pools in great condition. Restaurant and poolside bar on property with good drinks and food. Most sites are level and with good utilities in the correct place. Lots of resident park models mixed in .....but all well kept neat and clean. On Saturday there was a community yard sale that we enjoyed quite a bit.
Roads are all paved and spacious ....sites are gravel and a bit tight but nice. Staff are all friendly and professional.

We would NOT hesitate to return and probably will the next time we are in the area.
You will enjoy this park. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed for two evenings in October 2015 and wish we had spent more nights here. The check in process does not require you to leave your motorhome. The check in window is at the gate. After signing one form we were escorted to our site by golf cart and the driver offered to assist us with parking (though this was not required). The site was fairly level and consisted on compacted shell and sand. The parking pads itself was fairly narrow, but the space between sites is more than adequate. Full hook ups come with every site (electric, water, sewer and cable TV). Each site includes a concrete pad for the picnic table. The pool is ENORMOUS and is situated next to an outdoor bar. The health club is the best we have ever seen at a RV resort and includes and indoor pool. Lots of activities & sports, including our favorite-- pickleball. The staff are friendly and helpful. Their busy season begins in November when there are litterly over 100 activities or clubs every month. Even we live 2 hours away, we might spend a few nights here in December to experience this place when it is rocking! We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Just 1.2 miles east of 75 and 5 miles from downtown Sarasota...a cosmopolitan small town on the Gulf Coast.

A beautiful top rated park. Might be more appropriate for longer term stay than one night. Rather expensive for just a place to park and sleep. But staff is very friendly and helpful, and facilities and activities unending. Even have a dog washing station which we took advantage of. Would love to stay here again, but sure would welcome a discount rate for a "stay-over" and not using the activities programs and some amenities. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This was our annual Park N Leave stay at Sun-N-Fun. The pool, slide and water obstacle course were the kids' favorites. The pool bar was friendly welcome for food, snacks, soda and adult drinks. There are so many activities during theme weekends for the summer, it kept us busy. Even with the rain on most days, we had no problem at our site being on grass. Sad to say though, more park models are being installed and taking up these kind of sites. We enjoy it here. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Sarasota is very close by and great for day trips. We always try to see a movie downtown. Mote Marine laboratory is also close by. Those looking to shop have St. Armand's Circle for the eclectic shops and dining. Venture up one exit to the new mall on University Blvd to University Town Center. Fine dining and major anchor stores.

We have stayed at this park several times. Great location near 75, restaurants and stores. However, the park seems to have gone downhill. Sites are very tired looking. So are utilities. Cables for TV are in a sorry state and laying all over the ground. Very poor water pressure. Many rules. And worst of all is the noxious odor in certain areas we can only assume is coming from a problem with septic. They also allow the public in to use the facilities from the end of April onward which necessitates people staying here to wear a hospital-type bracelet for their entire stay. We would expect better given the rate. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Publix and Target down the road along with restaurants.

Pretty much a parking lot but we like it for the convenient location to Sarasota. Although it looks tight for the big rigs to maneuver somehow they all make it in. It's always full in the winter months. We usually stay in King which is definitely tight in spots; Queen has longer pull throughs. Our site backed up to an RV that was so long they hung well back over the end of their site which meant we needed an extension cord to reach our shore power outlet. We've had some good meals in their restaurant which is very convenient. Diesel, gas and propane are available right across the street from the entrance. Pet friendly though there are some cats running loose. The dog washing stations are great. A few problems we reported have always been addressed immediately. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We have come to this park many times and enjoyed every stay. The kids love it and stay busy in the pool, mini-golf, shuffleboard, etc. The only negatives: the Wi-Fi is spotty at best; landscaping is a bit run down. During the summer we take advantage of their Park-N-Leave program and pay by the month and stay any 12 nights. Looking forward to future visits. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Park sites were fine and there was plenty of room. However, SURPRISE... they charge extra to use their $5M fitness center. We only stayed there for the use of that facility. The charge was $50 per night which seemed high for July. However, we went for the amenities. When we were checking in, they said the fitness center was an extra $6 per person. We nixed the idea because of the already high nightly rate. I'm not sure what else they charge for but they seem to have lots of rules. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This campground is designed as a old-folks place. It is clean, appears to have lots of activities for anyone wanting to participate. It is near shopping of all kinds. It feels like a camper parking lot. Our site was difficult to get into and is very close to the next campers. Sarasota is a lovely area of Florida and I would like to spend more time in this area but would probably try another campground. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We reserved a site that we could park our boat and RV. They assigned us a premium 60' site for 2 weeks, which we paid in full. Within 1 hour of pulling our boat in someone from the office knocked on our door to ask us to park the boat at the parking lot. I was told that anyone staying over 1 week had to park their boat there. I told him I had specifically reserved a site for my boat and RV. That didn't matter they had received a complaint. He said he would send the park supervisor. 2 days later the head of security showed up at my site to say that boats weren't allowed this time of year on the sites (March). I told her I wasn't moving my boat out of my sight. She called the supervisor and she and "another staffer showed up 10 minutes later to tell me they would call the sheriff and have me forcibly evicted. I would have 1 hour to pack up and leave or they would do it for me. We decided to leave without the sheriffs help and told them they had breached our contract and would be getting a summons down the road. There is no regulation for parking boats in Fun N Sun's park rules. By the way don't be mislead by the Wi-Fi hot spots shown on the park map, none of them work. You have to go up to the computer room to get on line. When asked about Wi-Fi was told everybody now uses smart phones so Wi-Fi is one the way out. Stay away from Sun N Fun! We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.
