43 Parks near Bonita Springs, Florida
Jul 2016 - $41.00
Very peaceful camping for 5 nights. The reservation process was very easy and confirmation was received immediately via email. The staff was very friendly and greeted us courteously and professionally. The campground had more units than I expected for this time of year, which indicated to me that people were satisfied with campground. The grounds were immaculate; lawn very manicured, and sites were very clean despite the falling leaves. I noticed one morning that the ground maintenance staff was using blowers around the cement slab and sites. We truly enjoyed the pool; very clean, warm, and it was a pleasure to see the beautiful landscape. The restrooms and baths were roomy and clean. They must have about 30 washers/dryers and although I didn't use them, the manager had explained the fees, which I felt were reasonable at $10 week or $28 monthly for unlimited use. The nightly rate of $45 and the manager honored my being a Good Sam member with a 10% discount. Very close to I-75, shops, farmers market and excellent restaurants. Two beautiful beaches around 15 minutes away, Bonita Beach and Barefoot Beach; I tried both, loving the white sand and clean water (despite the news warnings). We could see some 4th of July fireworks from a park close by. My toy poodle loved the fenced-in area, and they have doggie bags around park. There were several families with children. Our site was nice and shady. The cafe is not opened in the summer. The interior roads were marked with signs and arrows to indicate 'One Way' - We plan to visit the Sanctuary RV Resort again. - Winny The Happy Camper

This is our second year here. We discovered the park last year and booked for three months for this winter. We are booked once more for the next winter season. It is a popular place for snowbirds. During the months of Jan and Feb it is pretty much fully occupied by people staying for two or three months or more. The large pull through spots are pretty much all taken during these months by people staying for the season. So it can be difficult to get a large pull through site for a shorter stay. The price is the same for all of the sites which do vary in size and may be back ins as opposed to pull through. The people here are great. Beautiful club house and this season we had fine dining at the on site café. The bathrooms look to be just fine but we use our own facilities. The laundry is great! You pay a flat reasonable fee of $10 per week or $28 per month and do all of the laundry you want to do. Dog friendly and have to say that the vast majority of dog owners this winter were responsible in their and their pet's behavior. - m2dougherty

We booked a pull-through site and received conformation for a pull-through site 11 months before our arrival. Found out 2 days before that we did not get a pull-through site. The small back-in site they were putting us on would not even come close to fitting my 32ft bumper hitch toy hauler. The staff in the office would not even look at my confirmation receipt of a promised pull-through site. Found them to be rude and uncaring. We had to head 4 hr north to Ocala. We were and still are angry with what happened to us so we would definitely not recommend this park.
On the up side the park looked very well laid out with large pull-through lots, all new washrooms, laundry, pool, and clubhouse and lots of things going on in the park to help entertain you. Too bad we did not get to enjoy it with our friends that were staying there.

This is a decent 55+ park in a great location for visiting several surrounding beaches. Sites are well spaced for multiple slides with concrete patios and gravel for the RV. There are activities & a heated pool that is well maintained. It is quiet. The price shown was for a monthly Dec. stay. We plan to return. - Ron and Jane

Like many other parks in Florida, this one is set up for older folks who want to hang out in nice weather during the winter months, not for families who are on the move and want a nice place for a short layover. That said, my wife and I were ready for a break from our travels and we really liked this place. It is located just a short drive from the excellent Bonita Beach, Fort Myers Beach, Lover's Key State Park, and a little further, Sanibel Island. Many excellent restaurants and shopping areas are nearby. The park itself has lots of activities - tennis, pickle ball, horseshoes, pool sports and many other park events. The folks are friendly, although conversations aren't usually about traveling around in an RV. Sites are a bit tight and interspersed with lots of permanent structures. Utilities are strong and sites are level (we stayed at #186). As previously reported, the WiFi is terrible and a constant topic of complaint, so bring your own if you can. Cell coverage is good and each site has a concrete patio and strong table. Laundry rooms are screened in areas with lots of machines, but a card system was used that we didn't like. Cards for laundry were recharged at the office, so laundry couldn't be done during off-hours or on Sundays unless you planned ahead. UPS and Fedex delivered directly to sites, so this is a good place to stay if you need to do some fix-ups on your rig. We recommend it to anyone 55+ looking for an excellent location to hang out for a while. The daily rate was based on a one-month stay, and be sure to reserve early for January-March. - LowesTravels

We stayed here for about four months this year and plan to come back next year as well. Overall it is a great place to spend the winter in Florida we would rate it very highly. Negatives: They claim to have WiFi but it is not usable. The landscaping is sparse--sketchy grass, stickers that get in dogs' feet, very few trees. Spaces are of various sizes and pretty close together. Parking is tight during Jan-Mar. The office help acts like you are disrupting their day whenever you ask a question or have an issue. Positives: This is the friendliest and most active RV park we have ever stayed at. There are so many things to do every day and people are so friendly. There are "happy hours" every day at 4 at sites all over the park and anyone is welcome to drop in. It is like a big neighborhood in Leave-it-to Beaver land or a college dorm for the over 55 set. Dinner dances, bike trips, cards and games of all kinds, tons of people at the pool and everyone is outdoors walking and chatting all day. It is generally quiet at night. The Bonita Springs area is a delightful place to spend time--great beaches, great restaurants, and night life. Interesting natural areas nearby, cultural events in Naples and Ft. Myers, and the best weather anywhere in the country in the winter. We highly recommend and hope to see you there next year! - MrSunshine

Mostly permanent sites, but very clean and well cared for.
Nice transient sites with concrete pads and grass, quiet
and peaceful. Nice pool and laundry facilities. Paved
roads throughout. Clearly the best option for visiting the area.
We would certainly stay again. - macandphyl

Nice park. No discounts offered, but price is very attractive for this area. The roads are a little tight and the sites are too, but we got our 43' coach into site A15 without any drama. All concrete pads, lots of grass. Nice pool. The park is very well maintained. No cable, no WIFI, good OTA reception, strong AT&T data. Lots of room to walk dogs but no formal fenced dog run.
Most sites contained the rigs of permanent seasonal renters and full time residents. In mid-April most of the seasonal folks had already departed. Everyone we met was very friendly and spoke glowingly about the park and all the activities in season. - bobcovey

On the face of it, this resort should not rate as well as it does! But for the price and location it is hard to beat. Sites are level and many are concrete, but they are not large! Lots of seasonal rentals, but everybody was very friendly without being obtrusive. Clean restrooms and good laundry at a fair price! WiFi worked well for me, but possibly because I was close to the office. I would give it a 10 if the sites were larger, but I would certainly stop here again - great value! - Limey51

We were greeted in the business office by a barking blind dog and five rescue cats. Although, I applaud this effort, I'm not sure all would be comfortable with it. After a ten minute wait a friendly. helpful human led us to our site, and helped us back in (we are beginners). A neighbor then assisted us with getting situated. We then went to find the community bathroom in which we occasionally take showers and were appalled. I went in feeling dirty and left feeling worse. It was filthy, looks as though it is never cleaned, or maintained. If I had wanted to swim, I would have had to deal with a handful of kids. I found this odd in a park that advertises for adults over 55 (in which I seek). One of two dryers was not working and we were just a bit intimidated by a few confederate flags displayed by some of the residents. We won't be back, or recommend it to others, yet we enjoyed some things in the area: especially the dog beach not too far away. We left earlier then we had intended on our next leg to our journey. Happy Trails! - Recession Road RV

Good screening between site so not for big rigs unless you are OK getting paint scratched & not using slides. Sites deep & narrow. Paradise for kayakers; less than 1/4 mile to launch on Estero River then 4.5 miles to Estero Bay & Gulf of Mexico. Campground well back from US41 so minimal traffic noise. Delightful overall. - BigPa

We were excited when we found this campground because southwest Florida is jammed with concrete, overcrowded cities of motorhomes and this was like stepping back in time. It is wooded and rustic. The sites are very private but the foliage providing the privacy also makes the sites tight. There were some bugs but we were in the middle of a jungle setting so if you can't take a few bugs, stay out of Florida, or don't camp for that matter! Stay in a hotel. The most fun of this campground is the fact that when you drive out you are surrounded by shopping and restaurants. We loved the juxtaposition of it all! We will probably return if we come back to this area. - Janemariejoe

We found this campground to be just right for our needs. We have been visiting southwest Florida for years and last visit we came just for the museum but saw the campground and decided to give it a try this year. It is older and may not be everybody's cup of tea but we enjoyed our stay very much. The site was private because of the foliage and the grounds were clean. The area has grown so much in the past few years so it is a nice balance to stay in a rustic setting but be within minutes of shopping and great restaurants. Jeff's Chinese in the plaza across the street was very good. - James Harris

Great park! Excellent location and price! Great friendly staff!
Park is very well maintained. It has a pool, gym, laundry facilities, shuffle board and other amenities.
They have very friendly swans in their lake that you can hand feed.
Plan to stay there again!! - Abner

It's in a very good location. We enjoyed the gym (very good), shuffle board was beautiful. Swimming pool was a little small but nice, we enjoyed the sunsets by the lake. The best thing I can say is the location of the campground. - MikeMayNaama

Very friendly and helpful management and office staff. The park is clean as well as the rest rooms and laundry facilities. The streets are narrow as well as the camp sites, however, I was able to maneuver a 40' fifth wheel with no problems. All the residents are very friendly. We would stay here again. - Digetydog

As another reviewer stated, this is looking more like a trailer park than an RV resort because of so many park models. On the plus side, the park is immaculate and the sites on the lake are pleasant, except for the fact you are looking at mostly park models. Everyone is friendly enough, but they tend to socialize only with other long term residents, so we didn't meet as many other RVers as we'd like.
The price is high for what you get, and the location is pretty far out, requiring about 30 minutes to get into downtown Naples. Strip malls and grocery stores are nearby, however. We would choose something different next time. - Drakelos
Dec 2015 - $55.00
Great place. Second time we stayed here. One of the best campgrounds you will find. Crystal Lakes is well maintained and easy to navigate. Great sites that are textured concrete and far apart.
Not a place for kids as there seems to be very few there. The location is good for getting around Naples. Price is good for what you get. - The VA Gent

A condo park, with all sites owned. Immaculate. Gated entrance, paved roads and sites. Office near entrance and staff most helpful. Led to spacious site by a volunteer resident who offered much information. Everyone encountered most friendly. Good utilities. Very quiet. Our five nights in the area were very enjoyable. Would stay here again. - trees47

We Stayed 1 week at Woodsmoke with easy access to RV and Truck repair services. Walmart is within walking distance. Sites are spacious and well placed. We setup on one of the full service, concrete pull through pads. 4G LTE Verizon cell signal is 4 bars strong. This is a Very clean and well cared for park with friendly staff. Nice Pool, Spa and laundry, all in good repair. - MIL-SAT

We stayed here for 5 weeks in the pull-though sites during Christmas and New Years. We took the pull throughs since we could not get a back in longer term site. The sites were huge, 70-80 feet long and we had no problem getting in or parking our truck in front of the 5th wheel camper. The campground staff were fantastic, helpful and friendly. All the campers we met were friendly. Many were staying the winter and many were just passing thourgh. The campground is conveniently located near many shopping centers, and easy access to Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Bonita Springs. They had a wonderful church service that was very popular in the campground. We totally enjoyed our stay and are planning to return next winter, if we can get a site! - 3RVERS

This was our second trip to the Ft Myers area and we are so glad we found this campground! It is spacious and beautiful. It is easily located right off of 41 so you can get anywhere you want; however, the traffic does get a bit heavy but that is no fault of the campground. We only had a few days this trip but we are already planning our return. Who wouldn't want to return to paradise! - Kittyj9

The bathrooms are disgusting, the same bulk of black hair stayed in the shower stall for the time I was there, which was a week. One weekend I could not access the bathroom because of the door code had locked. Well yes there is a manager on site but you can't ask her for anything after her hours she works which are 9am-3 pm. But she does spend lots of time at the pool drinking and talking about others along with other residents. Agreed very unprofessional but that is what Shady Acres likes. Maintenance is very good if you should need anything. Residents are very friendly and eager to help with whatever you might need. Laundry is new. Trash area has lots of wild life around it. There is also a rat infestation in the resort beware. - wildwoman1963

Initial impression on the phone an hour away was that they didn't want us to come in. We arrived at 5:00 pm on the nose (office closing time) and they acted like it was midnight...they were very put out. The first quarter mile of driveway was horrendously bad and we really thought we were going to a dump. Then we make the final turn into the park and the "curb appeal" was amazingly beautiful. Then we meet the clueless and rude office staff only to be handed off to a very personable site escort. Talk about extreme conflicting first impressions...
After we settled, we walked the grounds. Occupancy rate at the moment is maybe 30% so it feels roomy. When the place fills up in a couple of months, it will be extremely crowded in here. I think we have the only pull-through site out of 300 sites. The sites are grassy and level and utilities are good, but it will be sloppy when wet. Landscaping is pretty especially in the front part of the park with the pool, pond, main facilities, etc. Facilities all look new and extremely clean.
$24/night is the "PA" rate. Not a true 50% rate because we had to pay $3.00 for electric and additional $ for WiFi (both are included at regular $42/nightly rate). This gives us a feeling of being nickeled and dimed to death.
We would stay again if we knew management had a better handle on customer service and the rate policies were cleaned up. We stayed at a bargain rate, but would have felt better paying more and not feeling like they pulled a fast one on us. - Full-Time Roamers

The road into park was much worse than many dirt roads I have used while hunting. Have used park for 3 years, and it has gotten worse annually. Placed on inadequate location in old section with required 50a mp hookups. Sewer hookup higher than outlet on motorhome. Location tight for 42'. After a one-hour wait and 3 trips to office found manager making a personal call.
She arrived and in 15 seconds said space next to us would not be used. Upon arrival stayed for 30 days. Power not only on our spot but also on whole street kept going out. Park employee tried to identify problem without success. Did get electrical contractor for repairs; did fix some issues but we still had disruptions. Inexperienced manager kept saying it was our unit.
Manager very condescending to guests much older. She had no idea what was happening in her park. We along with others will not return next year. I would not recommend this park to anyone.
The newer section didn't seem to have problems. - trims

We stayed at Calusa Cove after losing our previous reservation at another campground, because of returning home for a family emergency. Calusa Cove was the only campground I could find available on short notice for the month of February, 2015. The campground is very small and very rustic. The campground owner was very courteous and extremely helpful. We were greeted warmly and given a nice large site. There are no amenities, but we were thankful to find a spot for the very busy month of Feb. We had a very nice shaded, large yard area for our two small dogs. Calusa Cove wouldn't be our first choice of a Campground, but it served our purposes of seeing Ft. Myers and the surrounding areas. The other people in the campground were very friendly and helpful. Calusa Cove is trying to improve their campground all the time. - campers5350

This is a very rustic RV park. No bathrooms or showers so you must have a self contained unit. However, if you just want a place to park while you go out to explore, this will work just fine. The couple who checked us in were very friendly and helpful. The park is very quiet. The RV sites are a bit irregular, just grassy areas with hookups. Great place to bring a dog and mountain bikes as there are some long trails out of the back of the park. We were glad to find this place as all other parks were full and those that had space were very expensive. Nice new shopping mall only 5 miles south, dog beach about 9 miles south. - User3335
