Discover Oscar Scherer Campground


Have you been searching for RV rentals in Sarasota County but hesitated a bit since you’ve never managed to find the right place to stay? If so, go book an RV right now, because camping at Oscar Scherer Campground is one of the best places around. Just look at everything you can do there: go fishing, hike on trails running through stunning nature, have a campfire, and rent a canoe - you can even look at delicate butterflies. The playground and swings make it ideal for the whole family, and you can have a picnic pretty much anywhere in this RV park.

Oscar Scherer Campground camping is both comfortable and convenient as well as fun, with both restrooms and showers as well as a dump station for all your needs. There are pull-through sites with full hookups and 50/30 amp service, and you can do your laundry at the campground as well, which can be a life-saver if you’re bringing the kids. If you didn’t, or if you just want to talk to your loved ones back home, there’s Wi-Fi available.

But you can’t stay with your rental motorhome at Oscar Scherer Campground the whole vacation, not when places like the exciting town of Osprey and beautiful Siesta Key and Venice are nearby. You can also visit the city of Sarasota, as well as play golf, go to concerts, and pick up groceries. It’s not far to the fishing pier, and you can do all sorts of water activities - and let’s not forget about the beautiful nature surrounding this Osprey campground. Check out celebrities or try to spot scrub-jays - there’s a little bit of something for everybody here.

The Great Outdoors

It would be a shame to rent an RV near Oscar Scherer Campground and not make the most of the state park that shares its name. Being surrounded by urban sprawl, this park truly is an oasis and escape into nature for a little while. There are both hiking and kayak trails, and you can go birding (this is the habitat of the scrub-jay) in addition to geocaching and primitive camping. You can also go fishing and swimming, and even rollerblading if that’s your cup of tea.

Also close to your Osprey motorhome rental but a lot larger is Myakka River State Park. One of the oldest and largest ones in the state, this state park offers you almost the same views as the ones that mesmerized Native Americans and Spanish explorers hundreds of years ago, and you can hear both limpkins and osprey in the air. Go hiking, mountain biking, or paddling before it’s time for a boat tour on Upper Myakka Lake. Don’t forget your camera, because there’s wildlife around.

There are also many smaller parks where you can get a taste of the astounding Florida nature, such as Potter Park, Legacy Trail, and Culverhouse Nature Park. Do some hiking, have a picnic, or play some games, or you could always visit the beach - or parks by the shore, like South Lido County Park, Nora Patterson Bay Island Park, or Blackburn Point Park. Who says you have to leave the city to feel like the noises and pace are far, far away?

Exploring the Area

Leave your RV rental at Oscar Scherer Campground, and head to the shore, where you can watch the various boats calmly bob up and down on the velvety yet sparkling water, or just admire all the architecture and flowers - and look at the stunning views of the ocean, of course. Eat some of the freshest seafood you’ve ever had, and don’t forget to give Historic Spanish Point some of your time. Here, you can get to know more about the history of the area, as well as why it’s like it is today.

Where there’s a beach, there are water activities. At least if the beaches in question are as lovely as the ones around Osprey. You can go sailing on the colorful water, or do some snorkeling beneath its surface before the surfing and jet-skiing start. There are also tours to be taken, like the one that takes you to see dolphins living in the wild. If you’re lucky, they might want to come and play. After all the swimming and sun-bathing, walk around the shops and find the perfect gifts to bring back home. Don’t forget to buy something for yourself.

How about it, RV camping in a stunning state park, spending whole days at the beach, experiencing Florida’s nature, and learning about the area, and then watching an absolutely gorgeous sunset at North Jetty, does that sound like something you’d be interested in? Well then: go search for an Osprey RV rental right now.
