Great stay! The park is beautifully landscaped, the sites were amazing with great size/space, paver patios, lush landscaping. Often when you get this close to a tourist spot the parks become very cramped and somewhat dumpy. That is not the case here. This park has very attentive management that shows in all aspects. The office manager was great; not just your typical park staff. She has been doing this a long time and it shows. She cares about the park and her guests. This is not big, flashy RV resort. It's a nice quaint, beautiful place to stay. Many of the guests had their sites decorated for Christmas and it was very nice. I really appreciated a dog walk that was well maintained vs the typical weed/ant/burr infested walk area. It's a beautiful grassy area around a small pond with benches. The park is close to many great bars, restaurants and just a short walk/bike ride across the bridge to the island. We did not bring our tow vehicle, just our bikes. We stayed in site 45 and definitely prefer that side of the park vs the side closer to the road. We are 43' with dual side slides and we fit nicely into the site with plenty of room to enjoy. We'll be back.
This is a great little gem. Small park on the bay side but only a 20 minute walk or a 10 minute bike ride over the bridge to the beautiful Bradenton Beach. We also took advantage of the free trolley on the island as well as the trolley to St. Armand's in Sarasota.
Facility is clean and well maintained with large paver or cement pads especially for class A rigs that surround a small pond. Restrooms are very clean and maintained every day. Has a small pool for relaxing.
There are two parts to the park.....a back section for bigger rigs with little road noise and a front section for others with moderate noise. Road noise did not bother us as the amenities were the bonus. If you do not like road noise don't park in the front section. This is also a very pet friendly park!
I would definitely come back to Buttonwood Inlet RV Park as the staff were extremely friendly and helpful!! Thank you for a great Thanksgiving week!!
