Little Manatee River, a Ruskin Gem

River Vista RV Village is just a boat ride away from Tampa…

The Little Manatee River is one of the most pristine blackwater rivers and is actually designated as an Outstanding Florida Water. Guests are welcome to enjoy an array of RV sites a short walk away from the water, with full hookups and all the conveniences needed for a peaceful getaway.

Activities That Add Years to Your Life

  1. Kayaking. The quintessential Little Manatee River activity is kayaking. There is a brand new boat launch with kayaks to take out at your leisure. On a sunny day, the water is so clear you can see through to the bottom. Weekly groups are taken out on the river and lead by a certified paddling adventurist.

    Kayakers enjoy the day along the Little Manatee River.
  2. Fishing. Take your boat out and discover a variety of fish including spotted sea trout, catfish and redfish here. You may even be lucky enough to spot a few manatees in their natural habitat.
  3. Hiking. There is a perfect 5-mile loop near the resort perfect for exploring, birding, and getting the fresh air you need.
  4. Picnicking. The picnic tables on the banks of the river are a perfect place to watch the sandpipers soar over the water and enjoy a packed lunch with a loved one.
  5. Stargazing. Spending the evening under the stars searching for constellations will rejuvenate your spirit and give you a new perspective on life.
