The good. The pools are heated, large and fabulous. Indoor and outdoor. Nice hot tubs. Fun mini golf. Shuffle board. Rec center with good showers. The bad: $117 per night. Sites are crammed in. A quarter mile walk to the bathroom is ridiculous! A lot of light at night. Very expensive. Do not recommend

Property's Favorite Review
We have been here a few times and always have a great time We have been to countless parks and this is a favorite. They have TONS to do here for ALL ages. I saw a review of someone complaining that there was nothing for kids to do and this park should be 55+ pffff I WISH! There are always so many kids and so many activities for them it’s crazy. I wish there were less kids because they take over the pool with diving and being nuts. No one tells them what to do Clyde, is very nice. I saw some karen mom complaining about him telling kids to behave. GOOD no one wants your karen crazy kids here. The park is kept up very well. Its huge and is a great value. The prices are cheap compared to some other parks. Try sun outdoors panama city! $150 for a regular spot and NOT worth it. This park has it all and for a good price My only issue is this - NO one wants to listen to Vietnam 60’s stoner rock at the pool all day every day. Please stop playing that garbage music. People want to have fun. We are not going to war or on acid. Someone that works there seems to put this junk on as their preference and it should be a company standard to have fun, relaxing yet upbeat music on at the pool. Also, the day passes make it hard on the weekend. Too many trashy people show up Other than that, its great here

Dirty upholstery. Dirty lanai floors. Not enough of anything. Tiny TVs. Instead of replacing the over range microwave they just put a countertop one in. Bland and featureless park model, don’t stay in 906. I’d never come back for over $200 a night. But the people are nice here. Rent one owned by private party, they are WAY nicer than the company owned. Cheaper too.

This park used to be our go to special place for many many years. The park has went downhill fast over the past 4-5 years with the new owners. The bartenders at the bar are the rudest in the business!!! Take your $$ elsewhere as they obviously are not in the service business!!!

We’ve been several times. Great location easy to access shopping grocery etc. we went with a family of six (4 kids) and rented a house unit. Everything is great. Only thing I’d mention is it smells like water treatment (sewage) by pool. The drinking water is also very heavily chlorinated you would not want to drink it. Other than that the mainly disappointing feature was the water slide that is so predominantly advertised is rarely open (saying they were too understaffed to regulate it). The kids were continually disappointed with that and with the pool temperature which they didn’t heat enough for the cooler weather - nobody was swimming. Lots to do and see at park great mini putt course volleyball etc. the pickleball was tricky nobody wants to let you use the courts lol they take it very serious. The bar was quite expensive this last time we went and you can’t bring your own drinks to the pool. You’ll want a golf cart the park is very big. They are expensive to rent and book up fast.

Just stayed a week here in our RV. This is our second stay here, but not our last. We enjoyed the pool. One day , the staff opened the water slide early just to make the kids happy The Getaway Cafe puts out pretty good food with friendly staff. A big plus was the use of the fitness center at no additional cost. The front desk staff there were very nice and welcoming each morning We also enjoyed at Pilates class that is held on Tues/Thurs for a fee of $10. The instructor was great Also a shout out to the awesome arts and craft staff in the multi purpose room. That was a nice break from the heat and gave my youngest something creative to do. Overall I love this RV resort. Great location to beautiful area beaches, shopping and restaurants

This is our third and last stay here. Come to find out it’s open to the public. It feels like they bussed in every family with kids. No jumping or diving in the pool signs are a joke. There’s not a safe space place to go in the pool and not get surrounded by kids splashing and jumping around you. No where does it say open to the public anywhere. This sucks!!!

The holiday weekend is predictably busy, but guests should still have the opportunity to enjoy the amenities. Please feel free to bring any questions or concerns to our staff so we can help with the issue and get everyone back to enjoying their time in the Outdoors.

For some reason this place thinks it's okay to sell day passes to locals who are free to pay their $5 or whatever and are then welcome to occupy all the spaces around the pool, take over the playground and shuffleboard so that people who are paying $1500 a week are left with no place to sit at the pool or use any of the other facilities for which they are paying an exorbitant fee!. If you are going to pay $6000 a month there are probably a hundred places in the area that are far better than this place.

Been coming for years! Every time it changes ownership it gets worse! Pool open to the public and people who spend good money to stay here can not get a chair! I was sitting at the edge of the pool enjoying a cocktail that I purchased at the bar and was told I had to be 4 feet from the pool so I stood 4 feet away to talk to my husband and told the man but it’s ok to get hit in the head by a full size football . The staff is soooo rude! Last summer rented 2 vacation homes for my family ., we moved the night stand to find eye glasses that the little one dropped and we couldn’t believe the trash and dirt behind the night stand! In the other unit there was baby roaches under the sink one in the couch and a hung one in the bed were the kids sleeper . On our way out talked to a manager he asked me to share the pictures I took to his email and would take care of us on our next visit well tried calling him leaving messages and never got what he promised! Sad to say we will never be back ! Stay away from this dirty and rude and crowded open to the plublic resort!

Hi Angela, Thank you for visiting and taking the time to leave us a review. Despite the name change and rebranding, the ownership of the park has not changed. The Sun Outdoors name helps campers throughout North America identify the resort-style camping experience they can expect from our properties. The Sarasota County health code requires that food and beverages remain at least four feet from the pool, and we must enforce this in order to remain in compliance; we apologize for the inconvenience. If you would like to follow up on your communication from last summer, please call our office at 844-728-8729 and ask for a member of our management team to discuss your concerns. We are very sorry that your experience was not up to our usual standards, and we would like to continue the conversation when you call.

The employees CURTIS and DUANE there are extremely rude to people unless they have their way and are very bias against young families. We just want a privacy fence but are denied so even though the neighbors behind us have two privacy fences! Please stay away from this business. THEY DO NOT RESPECT MILITARY FAMILIES OR VETERANS.
