Re-treat: (noun) A place affording peace, quiet, privacy.

Located along Florida’s Gulfcoast in Venice just a few miles from the beach you’ll find CampVenice Retreat. A year-round camping facility located in an old-growth oak hammock along the Wild & Scenic Myakka River. Seperate Waterfront areas occupy RV Sites, Tent Sites, and Rental Cabins. Miles of tropical waterfront and serene shaded areas greet their guests. You’ll find on-Site Canoe Rentals, a Heated Pool, Recreational Provisions, and Clean HomeStyle Facilities along an old growth oak lined stretch of the Myakka River. Right across the river from CampVenice is the Deer Prairie Creek Preserve. So across from the nature trails there you see nothing but nature!

CampVenice is the only Camping Facility offering ‘Actual Waterfront’ Cabin Rentals, RV Site, and Tent Sites on the Myakka River. A true getaway on a beautifully natural section of the Myakka. As a Retreat-Style facility, some restrictions apply regarding number of guests. Group reservations are not accepted, but individual families and couples may book accommodations up to a year in advance. Please contact them directly for further information.

  1. […] at CampVenice Retreat can access parts of the preserve by water directly across from the nature trails of the camping […]

  2. We stayed at the CampVenice Retreat last weekend in a cabin (and yep it’s right on the water). Just a couple sites away from us on the waterfront tenting area there were two pair of Red Shouldered Hawks making new nests in the huge oak trees above!
    I was SO COOL watching the nests beginning to take shape. One of them looks pretty complete. The hawks would come sailing through the camping area just a foot or two off the ground and fly off into the nature trails there. They didn’t seem to notice the people around at all. Of course everyone around there treats the place like a preserve anyway.
    Beautiful place! We’re going to try to go back in a couple weeks and check up on the hawks again!
