42 Parks near Fort Myers, Florida

When we talked on the phone, they made the place seem like a great RV Resort. Arriving on a Sunday, as per our reservation, the office was closed (2:30 PM) They had an emergency number listed, but it was answered by a fax machine. We picked out a site a proceeded to park & setup. When backing a water pipe, next to the road, was broken, but could not report it to the fax machine. Basically this a Trailer Park, with no amenities, that one would expect at an RV resort. I'm trying o be nice, but this place is a dump. - Chef

We stayed here on the Passport America weekly rate of $120. This is south Florida at the end of the snowbird season. The rate is only good for a one week stay. We stayed here to be near North Trail RV in order to do an RV inspection for a client. Things got pushed back so we had to stay here two weeks. The park manager honored the PA rate for the second week! Awesome customer service!! This RV park is located at the back of the park in its own area. Dogs are allowed in the park area but not anywhere else. The rest of the place is park models. The sites are nice, rocks and shells with a big concrete patio. The rest is well-maintained grass. The park is nice. We will return if we have need to be in this area. - Howard Jaros

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

Good park. Mostly permanent homes. Restrictive on kids. Lots of activities. - RagFlyer

We made reservations from Woodall's going by 5 star rating. This RV Park is only 20% RV's so we are squeezed between park model's of which there are hundred's. Cable TV is not offered so our only choice is direct TV which was a huge issue. This should not be classified as an RV Park. When calling to make reservations remember to ask about cable and Park Model's. We will make other plans for next year but Woodall's needs to have more details. - vergene

This is an old park in a rundown neighborhood. You can hear gunshots at night. The manager is very abusive and likes to flash his handgun, threatening, and downright mean. He likes to brag about how much money he has. He keeps folks deposits when he shouldn't.. There is a big problem with anything left in your yard getting stolen since the park refuses to install a gate. Many of the mobile homes are empty and abandoned. The laundry is run down, the pool has been deemed unsafe by the city. No WiFi or cable. No services except a small area for your dog to be loose. . The RV sites are small and the roads are narrow. I only stayed here because other parks were full. I worked nights and slept during the day and there was loud loud construction of a school next door with diesel smoke from trucks and equipment and very noisy, Constant noise from sirens and traffic. I stayed 5 months. - Ms Mary

Older dated park, sites clean, many full time older residents. Very friendly owners, great bark park with showers for the dogs. Quiet, yet handy to main street shopping. - pkunk

Over all a nice place - Yes is is/was a mobile home park that is using blank sites for RVs and perimeter sites for RVs as well. The roads were narrow ans I was lucky to be at an intersection so I could maneuver my 35' fiver in to the site w/ ease. Manager & wife are great people and very friendly. The maintain man was there in an instant and trimmed a tree in no time, to keep it off the side & top of the camper. Hard to estimate the ratio of RVs to Mobile homes but there were quite a few RVs that looked to be setting down roots and soon to become a part of the place as well as the mobile homes (though mobile is hardly the term I'd use to describe them. Traffic noise to be expected being right off a 4+ lane main drag through town (an EMS - Fire station was in the nearby area). Very easy to reach the interstate, as well as cycle into the downtown and see the Edison/Ford estates for a good afternoon. Might use this again - will keep in mind - maybe to try for a work camper position one year. Though no WI-FI, my Verizon air card worked well. Cable TV was a service you have to arrange - not worth it for just a week. - D Ward

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

We stayed in a lakefront site for 3 weeks in January and really did enjoy our visit. The sites are large and very well maintained. They are in the process of adding more sites that will almost double the number of sites in the resort. They have many activities that you can participate in if you wish. There is also plenty of place for walking and/or biking in the resort. The check-in was very easy and we were escorted to our site by a very nice gentleman. The office was very nice and helpful also. We will definitely return when in the area. - John & Bobbie

The park was nice, no WIFI except at the clubhouse, The entrance was very hard to maneuver two sets of gates and if you miss the second gate you have to turn around and start over, kind of crazy. Park was clean and close to shopping and I-75. - PAYOFF
Feb 2015 - $50.00
Very Nice park, mostly owners, this is not a very renter friendly park as it's is a bait and switch kind of deal. They are very motivated to sell you a lot. Very clickish! This is a resort style campground, very nice landscaping paved and very large lots. I recommend you stay away from the west side of the park as it joins up to a pig farm and the smell is atrocious. Pigs are loud everyday at feeding times and the owners of the farm party every weekend with Mexican style music very loud till late into
the night! - E Cabinz

This is about as good as it gets for RV resorts. Most, if not all, sites are owned by individuals. If you can rent from an owner, your cost would be about $40-50 a night. Through the resort, it is pricy (weekly rate $500). Sites are paved, back-in (with a few pull ins facing the lakes), nicely landscaped, and very wide and long. Electricity, water, and sewer were all in good condition. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Many owners and other residents volunteer to be gate greeters, opening the gates for new arrivals. We used our Verizon MiFi for internet. Cable TV available through the cable company. A nice book exchange is located in the laundry room. - DiplomatTraveler

We chose Cypress Woods as it was very convenient to Northtrail RV center and we were shopping. That said, if we ever wanted to stay in the area again for any reason, Cypress Woods would be high on the list.
The park is very well kept, very well landscaped and the facilities are top notch. As it happens we knew people that own a lot there and we were included in a "burger bash" that took place while we were there. We found the people, almost all owners, very friendly, as was the staff.
As at least one other has already mentioned, it was difficult to reach anyone at the office to make and then confirm our reservation. At the time (November 2015) it seems they had just one lady with apparently too many responsibilities handling reservations. Once we did get ahold of her she was very nice and very accomodating.
There's a variety of site types, but most are heavily landscaped and very attractive. Some are on water, most are not. - JMonroe
May 2014 - $40.00
Excellent paved, level sites. Water, sewer, and electric worked well. Beautiful pools, showers, and clubhouse. The reservation office is hard to contact. Clerk wasn't always in during posted office hours. Had to make four calls to reach her. Entry gates are problematic when entering with a motorhome and tow car. Overall, a great resort with attractive individually decorated sites. Easy access from interstate. - User3617
Sep 2016 - $32.00
Concrete pull thru was about 80' long. Easy in and easy out of the site. Roads are a bit narrow, but doable with a big fifth wheel and long bed truck. An HDT might have some issues. Direct TV wired at the site. Water pressure was around 60 psi. Free catch and release fishing. Fenced dog run is about 8' x 100'. It is not located in a convenient place, but it is available. Some residents ignore the 5 mph speed limit. Not a good thing with kids bicycling and skateboarding on the roads. Walmart is within walking distance if it is not hot. Would stay here again. - TH travelers

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
Feb 2016 - $64.00
We spent three nights here in February. As others have noted, the streets and sites are tight and the park has a run-down, crowded feeling to it. Our site was a pull-in located next to a dilapidated permanent structure. There are many long term seasonal renters and owners here. We received a useful information packet when we checked in. The staff and our neighbors were helpful and friendly, but we would not stay here again, even though the location is close to Fort Myers and the beaches. - Lyn T
Jan 2016 - $64.00
This park was disgusting. It rained, storm drains were clogged and for three days we were walking through ankle deep, stinky, polluted water to get to our unit.
It was expensive, roads narrow, sights too tight. Our awning almost touched the neighbor and Wifi was an extra fee.
You have to buy a card to use laundry and there is $3 fee for purchasing the card and you can only add in $10 increments, so three loads of laundry cost $20. Additionally six of the dryers were out of order due to lack of electrical capacity.
If this is representative of an "Encore Resort" we will never stay in another or recommend them to friends. - The Burkes
Feb 2015 - $45.00
One word describes this "Resort", TIGHT! Interior roads are the width of the mirrors on a motorhome and corners are sharp. Sites are mostly back-to-back so utility hookups are difficult with slides extended. Patio space, on grass, is tight but since sites are angled there is some separation between sites. The angled site eases entry, but exiting means either backing out or making a more than ninety degree turn into the narrow road. The turn is sometimes made more difficult by the power pedestals located next to the road. Big rig motorhomes are difficult, big rig 5th wheels are harder.
This park is reasonably close to the city of Fort Myers and Gulf beaches and there is transportation to the beach nearby. Campers were friendly and staff was helpful when asked. Electric power and water was adequate. There is an extensive list of cable channels, but signal is weak resulting in grainy picture. - Travlin Tarheel
