I cannot recommend Ramblers Rest near Venice.

Very narrow access roads, with low hanging branches.

For a natural setting in Venice, look into Venice Campground. It's on the Myakka River, family oriented, rustic( dirt road for about 1/2 mile to get to the campground) We were there earlier this week

Joe, any problems with the tree branches on that 1/2 mile dirt road?

I recall it being a little tight on that road.

We stayed at Venice Campground last spring. Loved it. Caught about 10 panfish from our campsite one afternoon. Got our 38ft+ DP in okay, though have to be a little cautious in some areas, just go slow.

Also, try out Little Manatee River State Park and Lake Manatee State Park, both near Bradenton, close to I-75. They both offer camping. Though you may not get reservations, they always have some sites that are not reservable. If you get there early Sunday am, you're most likely to get a spot that local families have used for the weekend and have to leave to go back to work/school.

Good luck,
Lois

Dirk,
No problems with tress branches. It is a bit tight, but the road widens in a couple areas and everyone is courteous . In going in, a couple of cars pulled over to allow me thru, we we left, a car was coming in and it was convenient for me to pull over while they passed.
