Wonderful week there! Staff was very accommodating when we wanted to change sites-we saw one empty we liked better. View of bay was gorgeous. We kayaked right off our site. Beautiful and clean boat docks. Park was very nice, spaces are small but able to accommodate big rigs. Pool nice. Very close to bridge to Ft Myers Beach- we walked over to avoid the traffic. Definitely would go back. We were advised that this was a subpar park by someone who was there 3 years ago. We learned that the kids took it over and upgraded a lot and continue to make improvements. We loved it. Very pet friendly. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Traffic is horrible over the bridge thst time of year. Highly recommended to bike to the bridge, lock it up and take the walk over. Beautiful walk,avoids all the beach traffic.

This was an overnight stay for us while traveling to a state park destination and we're not used to staying in a wall-to-wall RV resort. It was March and a full park so we had very close neighbors. The sites are very narrow and small. Our site, as most are, was right on the bay and quite lovely to sit outside with a cool March bay breeze. Nice facilities and boat docks. Conveniently located and filled with folks who stay for months at a time - year after year. Our preference is more of a natural setting such as a state park with a fire ring and grill, but for the RVers who like to have all the comfort facilities right there for long stays, this seems like a good place. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a decent campground. Friendly people and staff. Nice ocean breeze. Grass sites with cement area with picnic table. Pool was nice but small. Hot tub as well. We were in site 60. Nice view but very tight to get into. Was very difficult. My tire of my truck was literally on the cement border of the ocean. I mentioned it to the front office and they informed me that they would have never put on that site because of my vehicle and rig. A limit to late though. Would stay here again if on a different site and looking at the map. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Yes, this is a smallish place with sites close together and not exactly great for a dog. If you want to be on the water, bring your boat and going out into the gulf then this is your place. Enjoy the mangroves and local waterfront restaurants. Lovely area to explore. Great local dive type restaurant across the street. Really nice docks if you bring your boat. You see dolphins every day, lovely birds everywhere, and we saw a manatee at our waterfront site. I would only get a waterfront site. For the extra few bucks it is well worth it and, yes, the other sites are a little painful. Great TV reception and my Verizon cell coverage was perfect. Easy access to the beach down the road across the bridge. All the local conveniences. We want to come back in their off season. The best time there - no one to bother you and the close sites don't matter because it is very slow in May, June, September and October. We will do a month rental this September or October while we are finishing up our summer travel. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

To me, this parked seemed very much geared for the extended stay guest and not for the guest staying a few nights. The sites are incredibly close together (at check-in the desk clerk advised us to call him if to many cars were parked around the sites preventing us from backing into our site), and my neighbors awning was within 2 feet of my slide. Pets are allowed but per the rules, quoting printed Resort Rules, "No dog waste on or off the campsite." The Wi-Fi did work at our site and the utilities were directly next to the motorhome and worked as they should. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.

Wow, great location. We walked to the beach from here. Helpful staff. The sites are close together, but our site had grass and a picnic table so it was fine. Beautiful pool area and warm water in the pool! Nice laundry facilities. Can't wait to return! We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.

This was a pretty nice park, a close bike ride to the beach, lots of wading birds, manatees and dolphins to see. The sites are close together but it didn't bother us, the view of the bay is wonderful and there is a cute little smoked fish restaurant across the street. I would definitely come back again!

Enjoyed the park. They are not pet friendly. No place to walk the dogs. People in large motorhomes bitched about the dogs constantly to management. They in turn left letters on our door. Would not talk with us in person. We tried to come to some arrangement but to no avail. Basically walk your dogs in the street. To repeat, enjoyed the park but don't take your dog there.

Touted as "water front" premium site: only if you like being on a smelly canal staring at shrubs. Very small sites, no trees, just concrete, really awful smelling and no shade in summer. Rest rooms were disgusting, old, no A/C. Laundry facilities are a couple of old washers and dryers OUTSIDE of bathrooms. No community room, never saw any staff the whole 5 days we were here (left one day early, just too depressing). Dog friendly means 20 foot dog walk in front of dumpsters, really disgusting. They had a garage sale of used furniture and appliances, that was the activity, and the only one. No cable TV, but they never told us that on phone: claimed "full hook ups". Just so disappointing, nasty, old, crowded, awful. Been to so many RV parks in Florida and elsewhere, this was definitely one of the worst. Would never go back. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.

Love this place and try to stop here every time we are in the area. Close to Ft Myers beach and the water area is beautiful. My only complaint is that the sites are tight. But being on the water totally makes up for it. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.

Our site was on the bay with great views of pelicans, herons, and other wildlife. However, it can smell like sewer and dead fish certain times of day. Sites packed in as tight as possible, our car had to be moved so the neighbor across could get his rig out / new one in. People were friendly enough and it appeared a lot of folks stay all winter. (Personally I couldn't figure out why they liked it well enough to stay all winter.) It was cold while we were there and there was no heat in the bathrooms/showers: none at all and it was around freezing. Park was old and not very well kept, which I wasn't expecting. Not really that close a walk to the beach at least a mile or more with a steep bridge in between. Personally I would rather drive 10 minutes to the beach and stay somewhere nicer. But, if you are determined to stay “near the beach” you might be happy enough with the place. Way overpriced for early January. Price was with weekly rate discount. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.

A fun, funky park. We came for 3 nights and stayed 2 weeks. It's central to everything and a short walk to Fort Myers Beach, 6 miles from Sanibel. Since it was off-season, we had a premier spot, backed up on the lagoon that had lots of roosting and feeding birds. Very friendly staff. We would definitely come here again.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. You cannot find a better location for the money. We Walked to Fort Myers Beach and found some great little rustic dockside restaurants just outside the campground. We stayed for a week (the nightly rate reflects the weekly rate). We had a waterfront site which was well located for us. The sites are small (as we had expected) but we had a great time here and everyone was very nice. Keep in mind, many campgrounds in the area are farther away and you will have to drive into Fort Myers Beach, which is like driving in New York City during rush hour. Stay here if you want to spend time in Fort Myers Beach, not if you are looking to spend all your time in the campground. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.

What a Dump!!! I felt like I was camping in a parking lot. Our picnic table had a truck from our neighbor practically touching it. The view was nice if you could see past the huge rigs parked diagonal on the water side. Nothing at the store, nothing for the kids, a huge traffic jam just to get out of the place. The trolley was always full. We were supposed to stay 6 nights, we left after 1 day. It was only about 1/2 acre big no room for bike riding or anything. Fishing, what a joke.

This is not the place to go if you want rustic camping. It is right on a main highway and the sites are very close together. On the plus side, the campground is right on the water. Our site had water on two sides and lovely views. The rest rooms and showers are old in design, but were very clean. There are a number of washers and dryers, I assume because of the large number of snowbirds who stay here in the winter. The sites are all grass and have a nice concrete patio. It would be nice if they were gravel, since they can get a bit muddy when it rains. The people who run the place are very nice and helpful. There are a lot of boat slips and I would guess in the winter they are full. There is fishing right at the park and easy access to the gulf. Another nice feature is that the trolley stops right outside the park and so for 25 cents you can ride to the beach or to the nearby shopping centers. You can even carry your bike on the bus. There is a pool and hot tub at the campground, but it was too cold when were here to try them out. Be aware that if you have a big rig, parking might be tricky in prime season. We had no problem, but the place was almost empty. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.
