Calusa Campground Resort and Marina, Key Largo, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

The other reviews are somewhat true, this is mainly a colony of permanently parked trailers, plus a few permanent two and three story vacation homes. There are very few open motorhome sites. We are full-time motorhome travelers (in our sixties) and lucked into a great spot, right near the pool and Marina for three weeks in February. We ignored the reviews and took our chances, and ended up loving Calusa. There is a large population of Spanish speaking, mainly Cuban-heritage folks that come here. But there is also a large group of snowbirds from the Midwest and New England. We made good friends with both groups. The park's Valentine party was really fun -- the DJ played 50s-60s oldies for the first hour, then Latin music later. The pool is beautiful--busy on weekends, quieter during the week. Beautiful sunset viewing, and great boat access if you have kayaks or a boat. The office is well organized, the staff friendly and polite, and security is vigilant. You use a card to get in and out. Publix and Kmart are right across the Overseas Highway. Maybe we were lucky to avoid noisy neighbors at our site. Then again, we also enjoyed being invited out to Cuban culture night on the last Friday of the month in Miami, and partying at home in the park one night with American/Cuban friends. Don't let the bad reviews sway you -- for us this was a gem -- but what site you get may make a huge difference. We had Site 68 -- wonderful for our likes. We camped at Calusa Campground Resort and Marina in a Motorhome.

San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort, Fort Myers Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $85.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed eight nights, at Christmas, in a great spot along the water, facing the mangrove islands. Each day we watched fish jumping, herons and pelicans, and some days dolphins played near us. The sites are small, people are friendly, and pool was warm and clean. There is a dedicated group of regulars who come every year and know each other. We really enjoyed the small Park size and location--easy drive to Sanibel and Captiva, and shopping is nearby. But traffic on San Carlos Blvd is horrible heading to Ft Myers Beach, and is the main complaint for the location. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.
