To Linger. Remember when people had the time to linger? Reminiscent of days gone by, Linger Lodge is the perfect place to recapture those lazy, carefree times. Large, live oak trees dripping in Spanish moss shelter the restaurant and campground. This is "Old Florida" at its best. Located in Bradenton, on the picturesque banks of the Braden River, Linger Lodge is untouched by time.


Starting October 1st 2019, the RV Campground is closed for major renovations and expansion.


We will keep you updated on the progress here. We will be closed for approximately a year while we do the following

  • New clubhouse, pool, bathhouses, laundry facilities, etc.

  • All new utilities, roads and site pads

  • All sites will offer 30 & 50 amp and wifi.


Restaurant remains open during campground renovations.

  • Al Roker named us one of the "Top 5 Weirdest Restaurants in America" and we're proud of it.

  • Preserved native Florida animals adorn every inch of the restaurant.

  • We specialize in Old Florida favorites such as:

    • Fresh alligator bites

    • Frog legs

    • Fried Green Tomatoes

    • Smoked Meats & Seafood
