This is an old park. We pulled into our assigned spot only to find out it was five feet from the very busy US 41, The Tamiami Trail. Constant traffic passing at 55 mph. When I attempted to hook up I found there was no functioning 50 amp service. After I went to the office and tracked down the clerk, he was pumping propane, a repair guy was sent immediately. This guy tested the 50 amp breaker and found it broken. A new breaker was installed. No problems after that. $80 a night on season way too high for what you get. The place did have clean grounds and facilitites. We camped at Myakka River RV Resort (formerly Venice / Myakka River KOA) in a Motorhome.

The manager made us feel very welcome. The park and its facilities are very clean. This park includes year round residents and transients. We stayed here 10 days. Lots of things to do in the area. We would stay again. We camped at Myakka River RV Resort (formerly Venice / Myakka River KOA) in a Travel Trailer.

We love this place and it seems to get better every year. We had a nice pull through and plenty of space. Buildings are a little older, but very well maintained. Lots of seasonal sites but all very nice and no issues. We were scheduled to arrive at night, but broke down on our way and didn't make it until the next morning. The woman in the office was great and didn't even charge us for the night we missed, even though we arrived at 10 AM. Nice pet park and really cool island walk area. Close to North Port and beach. A bit far off interstate, so might not be perfect for overnight stay. Kids enjoyed the pool. We camped at Myakka River RV Resort (formerly Venice / Myakka River KOA) in a Motorhome.

Outdated park and very expensive. Most parks around the SW of Florida are in the $40 to $50 dollar range and have lots of amenities and showers and so on.This park charges too much, the Internet kept shutting down, and the site we were given had the marsh/swamp behind it , which the lady said was one of the better views. NOT! Does not look like the KOAs anywhere else.$89 a night was outrageous ,but we were very tired and had to stop. Unless you don't care what you spend there are other parks down the road much better. We camped at Myakka River RV Resort (formerly Venice / Myakka River KOA) in a Motorhome.

Outdated. The place is need of major renovations. It is overpriced. If you can, pass on this location. KOA used to mean something. This place is terrible. We camped at Myakka River RV Resort (formerly Venice / Myakka River KOA) in a Travel Trailer.

Super clean bathrooms; very homely. Extra marks for effort made to recycle trash. This is a good stop over park for us. We camped at Myakka River RV Resort (formerly Venice / Myakka River KOA) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here 3 nights. This park has a nice pool, laundry, free Wi-Fi, dog walk area and organized activities. It is south of Venice on US 41. The staff was friendly, professional and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped at Myakka River RV Resort (formerly Venice / Myakka River KOA) in a Motorhome.

This is the ONLY KOA we stay at by choice. Very nice smallish park. Good sized sites. Everything works and is well maintained. Best propane prices we found in the area. They make their own deals, so you can often get a decent rate rather than the standard KOA overpriced rip-off. Free WiFi. Rate listed is daily for $750/mo + elec (not bad for south Florida in December.) We camped at Myakka River RV Resort (formerly Venice / Myakka River KOA) in a Motorhome.

While this park is new to the KOA name, it is an older park. Well run and managed by the owners. Excellent WiFi throughout the park. Some of the sites are difficult to back into due to trees, poles, etc. Many pull through sites looked fine for any sized rig. Do watch out for the leaning palm trees, as in places they extend out over the roads, in the park. The park was about 1/3 full when we were here. The actual town address on my GPS was in North Port, Fl and not Venice. Easy access off a 4 lane to the campground. We spent 3 nights here. We camped at Myakka River RV Resort (formerly Venice / Myakka River KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

Price reflects KOA Value Kard discount. Paved streets and crushed shell sites with lots of park models and long term folks. Some low branches somewhat difficult to navigate with a big rig. There was a nice fenced pet area. There is noise from Highway 41, especially on the north side, but we were not bothered by it. We enjoyed our stay and would return.

A nice little park in a great area of Florida--between Venice and North Port, right on the Tamiami Trail. Lots of stuff to see and do in the area, and lots of friendly people in the park. We stayed for a week and enjoyed every minute of it! We camped at Myakka River RV Resort (formerly Venice / Myakka River KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a small park with about half park models. There are views of the Myakka River. We didn't see the park's canoe/kayak river access but we didn't ask about it, either, since it was cold that week. There are no activities in the park (contrary to the park's website). The laundry room is nice. The park is clean and is located half-way between Venice and Port Charlotte. Except for the neighboring seafood restaurant, nothing else right near the park. The Venice beach is 30 minutes away. We would stay here in the future for an overnight but not a longer stay. We camped at Myakka River RV Resort (formerly Venice / Myakka River KOA) in a Motorhome.

Is now a KOA campground. Does not have any playground and is mostly long term guests. Nice spot along the river complete with alligators. We camped at Myakka River RV Resort (formerly Venice / Myakka River KOA) in a Motorhome.

Nice small campground with good Wi-Fi but no cable and limited TV. Staff is friendly. Understand that campground is switching to be a KOA campground. Will be staying there again. We camped at Myakka River RV Resort (formerly Venice / Myakka River KOA) in a Motorhome.
