We stayed at Ramblers Rest over Christmas 2007 and we were very pleased with the resort. This is a park in a transition of new owners. The resort was very clean and what made this resort stand alone is the people. We pulled in to set up and we had 3 seasonal campers come to us and offer to help! This resort is primarily seasonal campers with little transient traffic. This has to be the quietest park we have ever stayed in.

The pool and hot tub were great. They were heated to a comfortable temperature. The washrooms are old but spotless and the showers are hot and free. You can tell they are working to make this resort a gem. During our 2 week stay they pulled out 2 older trailers and after talking to the residents there will be more to go.

If you are looking for a place to have your younger children entertained this may not be the place to go. The activities planned for them are limited.

The wild life in the park is immense. From the edge of the Myakka River you can see the biggest alligators you ever want to get that close to in the wild. The fishing from the dock was quite good. We saw a Bald Eagle land in the field beside the pool. While eating our dinner we had a hawk land and capture his pray 10 feet from our table. The Owls put us to sleep at night and the wood peckers woke us up in the morning. A good suggestion is to bring fire ant killer. They are abundant in the park.

In previous trips to Florida we have spent all our time in theme parks and this trip all we wanted was beach, beach is what we got,. Within a 10 minute drive you are at some of the nicest beaches in the world. Venice beach was great but a short drive north and you get to Siesta Key beach and this is a must see.

In conclusion we had a hard time finding information for this park so we gambled and the gamble paid off. We loved it and we recommend this park for a quiet secluded and enjoyable vacation.
