The campground was clean, quite, great bathhouses, great pool, and the gator is neat. My kids rode their bikes and made friends. Most everyone was a joy to meet and speak with. We are planning on coming back but for a month next year.

The facilities were everything we expected and a little more. The staff was friendly and helpful. The EV sites have easy electrical, water and sewer. The shower and laundry areas were spotless and perfect. We'd definitely choose Ramblers Rest again if we're in the Venice area.

Beautiful resort with very helpful staff! Large lots and amenities were great! You can fish from the dock on the Myakka River. We had our dog children with us, and they loved it there too. We will definitely visit again.

Very clean and well maintained park. Staff were courteous and helpful. Location was close to shopping, dining and entertainment. Web check-in was easy to navigate and phone support was available. We will use Encore in the future.

Campground is really nice, roads are somewhat narrow yet we got our M/C around without a problem. Most of the office staff are good, one is somewhat opinionated about everything and very unhelpful. Hard to get reservations and waitlist is very, very long. We called for reservations for next year on the second day after the wait list opened; when we came to the campground for a month stay in April we discovered we were not on the wait list, now we are on page 6 and 1/2. Forget about cable or wireless wifi unless you want to engage Jabba Communications, which when previously used two years ago was a waste of time and money. Why Encore uses this form of wifi is beyond me. Most campgrounds we have stayed offer good wifi and some even provide cable hook-ups AND at a cost less than the Encore campgrounds we have visited. I wish campgrounds would request their guests to not fly political flags as it automatically creates lines of division among the campers. Finally, in reading other responses I have noted that the standard response was given to all who review Rambler's Rest, so I expect nothing less from an Encore owned campground. By the way, I wonder if Encore can be declared a monopoly. LOL

The title gives this away. Great place, clean, nice pool and amenities. If you have a question or problem, don't expect an answer or solution very quickly. The people there are wonderful. If they volunteer to lead a class or activity, they do an excellent job!!

Encore might be a premium campground for long stays but site we were given was unlevel sand (not a concrete slap), NO shade and you are squeezed between other fixed sites. Understand maximizing your sites and investment but don't call this site a premium site and change for same. We flew to FL from TX to pick up an RV and drive back to TX.

Highly recommend! The bathrooms were clean, and pool and splash pad were the kid favorites. Site is close to beaches where we hunted for shark teeth. Only downfall is that we could t stay longer! Looking forward to returning!
