very nice, clean park. level spot. we had a dock, which worked out great for us. wifi was probably the best we have ever had at any site. laundry was nice because it had credit card machines on the washer / dryer, so you didn't need change. could see dolphins from our site. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed on their new premium sites, which were paved and drove up to a sea wall ten feet in front of our coach. Manatees and dolphins swam within ten feet of the sea wall in the morning. A boat launch exists and some sites offer boat slips. The waterway feeds into the Gulf of Mexico. Site was manicured very nicely a with foxtail palms and other beautiful foliage. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.

Not a bad little campground although big rigs have to use the higher priced sites but these have nice water views. Friendly and helpful staff. Sites are varied gravel or grass, all are back-in. Large, concrete patios with picnic tables but no open fires permitted. Asphalt roads. FHU/30/50 but all utilities are at rear of sites, saltwater pool, hot spa, laundry, dumpsters and recycle bins. No propane sales, minimal CG store. Gas/diesel gets more expensive the closer you get to Ft. Myers. We saw dolphins out our back window. They also have a sizable marina but we only saw 1, small fishing boat. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Mini-golf at the Smuggler's Cove, a really nice albeit pricey facility. Dinner at the Gulfshore Grill (Ft. Myers Beach) was very good but also, a tad on the pricey side.

Nice park with most sites on water. Spaces are tight and close, but fine if using as a base for exploring area. Had a problem with 50 amp power, told office and problem was resolved in 5minutes. Actually,maintenance man was at site before I could get back from office.. We would stay here again. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
