Discover Bradenton, FL


Bradenton is a small city about 50 miles or an hour's drive south of Tampa with a population of a little more than 55,000. So if you want to be close to crowd-free beaches and yet still be within commuting distance of Tampa (Union Station) via Amtrak, then renting an RV in Bradenton is highly recommended. If you like history, this tiny city is big in Old Florida and Manatee County pioneer histories. Discover museums and historic buildings, bike and hike in its many nature trails and preserves, and meet working artists straight out of 1920s restored cottages. From here, Egmont National Park is a boat ride away, and Walt Disney World in Orlando is less than 100 miles north, or an hour and a half drive with an RV rental in Bradenton, Florida.


The Great Outdoors


Bordered by the Manatee River to the north, Bradenton is only 15 square miles in size. But what it lacks in land area it more than makes up for its proximity to beaches and barrier islands such as Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key. If you like broad white sand beaches and turquoise waters with a laid back vibe, Anna Maria Island makes a perfect escape from Bradenton--a mere 20 minutes away. Even better, you can pick up your motorhome rental in Bradenton and camp at Sarasota Bay RV Park just five miles down the road.


On the other hand, if you have golf on your mind, or simply access to elegant dining and shopping options, then Longboat Key would make a better destination. Even if sports, food and retail therapy are not what you came here for, you surely will love Longboat Key's 12 miles of white sand beaches. Several campsites for your Bradenton luxury RV rental are within 15 minutes' drive. Manatee County Area Transit (MCAT) buses easily link you to downtown Bradenton so wherever you choose to park your RV rental, the beach is always a stone's throw away.


For a fantastic day trip, you can leave your travel trailer rental in Bradenton and hop on a ferry to Egmont Key State Park not 15 miles offshore. The park is a wildlife refuge with pristine beaches where you can collect shells or simply reflect on the cultural and natural history of the island while visiting its historic sites such as the 1858 lighthouse and Fort Dade, or walking the nature trails where you may encounter gopher tortoises, Florida box turtles, hummingbirds and a host of seabirds that live at the south end of the island. Start your outdoor adventure in Florida with a search for an RV in Bradenton!


With your camper rental in Bradenton, you can venture farther south to one of the largest national parks in the United States, the Everglades. At 2,400 square miles, the park offers plenty of things to see and do. Go on a boat tour of the 10,000 islands, glide quietly on a canoe or kayak, or walk on one of the boardwalk trails to experience the park first-hand and encounter wading birds, deer, and its abundant residents, the alligators.


For a more challenging outdoor activity, take time to explore some longer hiking trails, or go off-trails (slogging) to see the park's elusive species. You can even stay right in the park for a few days to get a more immersive experience. Long Pine Key Campground has a sewer dump station but no hook-ups, while the Flamingo campground has electric hook-ups but no dump station. Regardless, it’s great to have your RV trailer rental in Bradenton right within the park’s campgrounds.


RV Parks


Bradenton has a handful of RV parks within a five-mile radius if you wish to stay close to the city. Vista del Lago MH and RV Resort and Arbor Terrace are both within 15 minutes' drive of the city center while Winter Quarters Manatee RV and Timberlane RV Park are less than eight miles or 20 minutes away.


Vista del Lago RV Resort is not only close to beaches and fishing spots but also to museums, golf courses, and urban conveniences. It's a pet-friendly park (restriction in size applies) for your RV rental in Bradenton, offering heated swimming pools, cable connection, and full hook-ups. Even better, the nearest Walmart is only two miles away and the nearest gas station is only a minute away.


For those wishing to stay closer to Bradenton Beach, park your Bradenton rental RV in Sarasota Bay campground where the beach is only two miles away. The nearest Walmart is four miles away while another is within a 10-mile radius. Gas stations are plenty on the mainland, and the closest to Sarasota RV park is about 15 miles south. Book an RV in Bradenton and you’ll find everything you need close by.


Exploring the City


Despite its small size, Bradenton brims with parks, museums and preserves, and Old Florida history. The De Soto expedition explored the area in 1539; it’s a historic landing commemorated at the De Soto National Memorial five miles west of the city center. For a more recent walk back in time, view the collection of restored, historic buildings from the county's pioneer past at the Manatee Village Historical Park. And if you are into anything artsy, you will love exploring the Village of the Arts where working artists reside and maintain studios in restored cottages from the 1920s and '30s. Take the Manatee County Area Transit (MCAT) buses to see the best the city has to offer while your Bradenton motorhome rental is safely parked close by.

Frequently Asked Questions


What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

How much are average RV rentals?

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

Do RV rentals offer delivery?

Having an RV delivered to your home or destination is a great way to simplify your trip. Many RV owners offer delivery and setup services, usually for an extra fee or within a certain distance of their location. Each listing shows whether or not delivery is an option.

Are there RV rentals near me?

RV rentals are available all over the country! Whether you want to pick up an RV near home to set out an epic road trip or if you want to have one ready at your destination, you can search by location for any type of rig.

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership. It’s also a great way to try out the lifestyle and different types of rigs before you take the plunge and buy your own. Already own an RV? Consider renting yours out to bring in some extra income.

How many people can sleep in an RV?

Small travel trailers and campervans can usually sleep 2-4 people comfortably. Mid-size trailers and motorhomes usually sleep 4-8. Bigger rigs often sleep 6-10, some even 12!
