REVIEW Terra Ceia RV Resort, Palmetto, Florida

Even though we had Terra Ceia RV Resort already booked before buying our Thousand Trails membership, we still got to save our 20% after buying our membership because it was an Encore resort, which helped the fees here a bit.

This resort is located at 9303 Bayshore Road, Palmetto, Florida, 34221. Just minutes from Bradenton. It's more of a trailer park with many permanent sites.

Currently rates were $46 a night and to me this was expensive for what we got. We did save 20% by now being a Thousand Trails member so our cost was $36.80 but they add on the $4 a night resort fee. 

Our site (F10) was a decent size. All grass with a small cement pad for the picnic table. It was level but the grass area was way lower then the cement so we had to pull ahead further to be able to put our stairs down. Even in the rain it remained dry.

There was a very clean pool here which even provided a few pool toys and allowed your own toys in it. It was also heated to a decent temperature so even I could go in. There was no playground here, but the girls could ride both their bikes and their electric jeep around. They met a few friends here so they had a good time here non the less. There was a clubhouse which we didn't enter and a small lake to fish in.

Basically the area we were in was mainly mobile homes. Each lot was responsible for their own garden etc. There was another area of the park that did have a lot of trees (on your right side of map below) and we would have been much happier in that area. I'm rating it as a 2 based on where we were parked with nothing but a grass lot.

The bathrooms and showers here were very clean and well maintained.

STAFF 2.5/5
Honestly this is kind of an unfair judging, and here is why. When I called in to see if we could come a day early I was told there was no room and no over flow parking. Upon arrival we saw an over flow parking area right beside the sign in building. O-well the Walmart here  was great. Then upon registration the person who registered us wasn't friendly or unfriendly, he was rather bland. He signed us in and we parked. That was the only staff interaction we had during our whole stay.

This was a great location if you want to be close to Bradenton area. We had a great time at the South Florida Museum and on the  Bradenton River Walk. We took a day trip to MOTE and Lido Key beach as well. There were a few other things near by I had wanted to do but we didn't book in enough time in this area. There was a dollar store right beside this park too if you ran out of any basics you could walk over.

We were not thrilled with this park but were happy that we had a bit of space on our lot and a decent pool. The location was great for the few items I had planned for us to do. There was WiFi but it was at a cost and we did not buy it.

Somehow I deleted the rest of the resort pictures I took...sorry.
