Tampa South RV Resort is located in Ruskin Florida.  The park sits right on  Little Manatee River which leads out to the Gulf. I personally love water and seeing their website pictures that is what sold me on this park. The office was very accommodating, and we were then escorted to our lot and to my joy, a gentleman took my job of directing Tommy into the space.


Amenities include a heated pool, laundry, and washrooms. For playtime they do have a pool table, horseshoes and shuffle board. When staying at Tampa South there are many close by beaches including Anna Maria Island.  Another plus is it’s close proximity to Busch Gardens and all that the Tampa area has to offer.

Tampa  South is a Good Sam  park but they do  offer a lower nightly rate for us Florida residents, and also offering a discounted summer special on a long term stay for  Florida residents.  Just an FYI, I was told that in the summer there are kids  and their joyful sound is liked by most  so if you are still raising youngin’s they are welcome.tampa-south_25917772530_o tampa-south_26164715336_o

Boat storage is available dry or docked in the water. No on site boat ramp but there are a few very close by. As I said before Little Manatee River does lead to the Gulf and the fishing is awesome.  A fish cleaning station is also provided on the dock. Wait did I say dock, personally this is my favorite part there’s a beautiful dock with a little walkway on the river, and there is ample sitting places to watch the sunrise or have a little cocktail as the sunsets.  The latter is more my speed I hate those mornings as much as Garfield.


One last note Tampa South is not pet friendly so please keep this in mind.

Backyard Portable Grill from Walmart

Tracie and I have been neglecting to get started on our video posts, mostly out of fear and embaressment.  We just finished setting up camp at Fort Pierce / Port St. Lucie KOA and while sitting there cooking some lunch, I grabbed my phone, started the video camera, and thought to myself “well here we go”.

Check out our video, and hopefully we wont be so nervous on the next one LOL

Here is a link to the grill : click here—> Backyard portable grill
