We’ve traveled from San Diego California over 3000 miles stayed in 18 RV camp grounds Sun & Shade is by far the WORST the bathroom (there is only one for a huge RV lot) is absolutely terrible dirty and disgusting the shower facets don’t work the water is on or off now way to control the temperature you turn the knob it just spins without effect The floor hasn’t been cleaned in years A sad place indeed do yourself a favor and avoid like the plague !!!

Great people there year after year. You are made to feel comfortable at your first visit. Friendly beer drinking bunch, never out of control. I'm a Male 6'2" 300 lb and nobody has ever made fun of my stomach at the pool. No you can't beat this place of group of people. Office personal could not be better GOOD TIMES

Staff and campers were friendly and the pool was nice, although a bit on the warm side. The roads were narrow and it would have been very difficult to back into our site with our 36' 5th Wheel if there hadn't been a cross street to help the process. The sites were a little tight and to make it worse, some of the campers didn't hesitate to cut through our site with their golf carts. This appeared to be a normal thing at this location.

However, the most irritating issue was the smell. If the wind was from the west you could smell the landfill and that seemed to happen often. Not a pleasant thing to open your door in the morning only to be hit with the awful aroma. I don't think that we'll be staying at this location again.

We have camped at Sun n' Shade many times over the years and can say that it is a hidden gem as far as campsites go. Although this is an older park, it has all the amenities one would like during a camping adventure. Many residents make this park a full time home and they are super friendly and are always willing to help you if you need it. Right in the middle of the park, there's a beautiful swimming pool that gets almost daily use because it's kept clean and tidy everyday. The pool is attached... Read More

We have camped at Sun n' Shade many times over the years and can say that it is a hidden gem as far as campsites go. Although this is an older park, it has all the amenities one would like during a camping adventure. Many residents make this park a full time home and they are super friendly and are always willing to help you if you need it. Right in the middle of the park, there's a beautiful swimming pool that gets almost daily use because it's kept clean and tidy everyday. The pool is attached to a small building that houses restrooms and laundry facilities. You always see people resting around the pool while doing laundry at the same time. If you drive all the way to the back of the property, you'll even find a small putting area for golf fans. Near the front of the property, there's a recreation facility for gatherings to meet new campers or permanent residents, or just having special events to celebrate. There are 30 amp and 50 amp sites, electricity, water, sewer, and you can even purchase internet service if you need it, and of course you get excellent television reception from local stations and you don't even need a satellite dish. Throughout the park you'll find a mix of palm trees as well as pine trees, which gives a degree of privacy. You'll even find two adult Sandhill Cranes that roam the property looking for a free food handout. These birds are not only beautiful, but they can also be loud when they choose. At least you always know when they are around. Very picture worthy since they are tall and stately looking. During the summer months, there is virtually no competition for sites, and there are many, so we choose one of the few sites we prefer. The onsite manager is a pleasant person who has been there running things for many years. She not only runs the daily operations, but pitches in to help out when staff is short. One thing we like the most is that there are plenty of nearby lakes to fish that produce Bass, Tilapia, Mayan Cichlids, Bluegills and Catfish. You won't want to miss the short drive to Webb Lake, and for a small admission fee, you can drive for miles along the lake, where you can fish or take advantage of one of the primitive campgrounds. There's even a shooting range inside this well protected area. One very nice feature about Sun n' Shade is that it's just a few miles from restaurants and shopping if you need any supplies. The staff is very friendly and available 7 days a week. You don't even have to drive to a dumpster, just set your bags out by the road and they will pick it up and dump it for you. Since this park is located off of Hwy. 41 just a few miles south of Punta Gorda, you have easy access to the I75 freeway which takes you North toward Tampa, or South toward Miami and Key West. The park entry is very identifiable with a huge American flat the entry.
