the dog poop stations were well stocked and emptied as needed. the highway noise is to loud for the site we were at. COVID disrupted many of the activities. not a place for school children as there are no playgrounds. grocery and other stores were close by and convent.

Think twice about staying any longer than a couple of days. We are snowbirds. This is the second year in the park and had planned on returning for many years. The quality of the park has declined significantly in just one year. Management shows no sign of addressing the issues.
Nothing is locked for security. Vagrants use the laundry and shower facilities. These areas are not cleaned on the housekeeping staff’s days off.
My husband had his touring bike stolen...one of 15 bike that had disappeared.
The secondary laundry/shower facility has been completely renovated. The shower area has a major leak...as of the day we left, there was still a large area of water laying in front of the door...one month after it was reported.
We left a week early due to these issues...very disappointed...

If you get a spot on the side of the lake closest to I-75 it will be very noisy all night long. I had asked if I could pay the difference in my spot and the one across from me which backed up on the lake. I was told I had to pay almost $100 so that spot stayed vacant all weekend.

Stayed at Winter Quaters Manatee for 8 days.
Location is close to I-75. We had a premium site and did not notice the highway noise.
Staff is good and helpful. Majority of the people staying here were very friendly (some are long term). There are 2 RV repair people living here -Did not end up using them but always good to know - just in case.
Location is very convenient for groceries and stores. Most sightseeing/activities are less than 30 min drive.
Bradenton is very bike friendly. There are a lot of bike lanes. I rode over 40 miles on the bike lanes (with few miles on the road). with no issues.

This park is very nicely laid out, with plenty of things to do and enjoy. It is conveniently located near I-75(a little road noise, but really cant hear it inside too much) which made it perfect for exploring the southern areas of the west coast of Florida. We stayed 9 days and went from Clearwater to Ft Meyers. The staff are mostly friendly except for a few old timers. And it is kept very clean and the campers are all friendly as you know.
