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!!! We camped at Myakka River RV Resort (formerly Venice / Myakka River KOA) in a Motorhome.

Miles to anything! Traffic is terrible trying to cross out of the place! Go back North on River Road to Snookhaven Restaurant! Dirt road back through the woods, mile or so, but you won't regret it!

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. We camped at Myakka River RV Resort (formerly Venice / Myakka River KOA) in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
