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. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Motorhome.

Washing machines and dryers out of order more than working, always waiting for parts(since November). Barking dogs are a big problem and no one enforces rules about anything. Tenters have been thrown out after 3 or 4 incidents only, some get to stay regardless! People are friendly and many long term visitors. Management is absent and local manager is very inexperienced. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Generally a very nice RV park. Our site was not adequate for the size of our RV. The showers and restrooms were clean and well maintained. WiFi service was good, but you pay for it. Area around the lake deck was was trashy and the pool area is way to small for the number of people that use it. Get there at 8:00 am to get a lounge chair. Lots of organized activities. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Travel Trailer.

We made our reservation two days in advance, stated out length (69 feet with trailer) were told we would have to disconnect and pay storage. We were called back by the park and told they had one spot that would take out length. Arrived and park manager was very rude, made us disconnect and pay storage. Later learned our spot had been given away earlier in the day. Brochure and web site depict park in a very good light. Offices and entrances look like the pictures, but the park is not so nice. Very close quarters, even for just our 39 foot coach length. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Motorhome.

Basic spot with concrete porch. RV rests on grass. Spaces tight, so getting in with all adjacent spots occupied was tough without getting people to move (which all the neighbors did, friendly). Patient assistance provided for parking. Park club house and pool seem upgraded, but the actual park needs some maintenance (electric drops and driveways). Road between 41 and park entrance is narrow and rough. Far enough off Hwy 41 to be quiet. Internet was free, but hung a lot and bandwidth was rocky. Rate reflects a Good Sam discount.

Shady Acres in Fort Myers is well maintained, however there are far too many dogs allowed. Some units have 3 or more dogs and some bark continually. People are using the extended leashes and allowing the dogs to walk on other folk's property and do their business. The pool is far too small for the size of the park and rules are not being enforced for the amount of people allowed in the pool at the same time. I find it hard to give this park a high rating because of these issues. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Site is just OK. Park on grass and the access is tight for a 40' motorhome. However they do assist you in and out of your space. Very disappointed in the Wi-Fi, actually the Internet service. They use TengoInternet. The Wi-Fi was strong and the connection to it was fine, but there was no connection to the Internet most of the time. The provider seems to have a problem. People are nice at the office and in the camp grounds. No, I would not stay here again. I'd pay more and get more elsewhere. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Motorhome.

The park is clean. The management is nice. I couldn't give it high marks for two reasons. 1. The internet was non-existant. The only time I was able to use it was 5:00 am and then very briefly. Not a problem for me since I have wireless but if you rely on it you will be disappointed. 2. There appears to be large noisy groups that overwhelm some sites. Mostly they observe the quiet hours after 10:00 pm. But we did not have a quiet restful time when we were there. This isn't management's fault but it appeared to be a fact of life while we were there. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Older, well maintained campground with fairly tight full hook-up sites containing a very nice concrete pad & picnic table. Campground offers on site restaurant, pool, shuffle board, horse shoes and many planned activities. Bath house was very clean and updated. There are many full-time and seasonal residents who have created a family community feeling. Wif-F was difficult to use & connect to. We enjoyed our week long stay and would return again. Nothing fancy, just comfortable! We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Motorhome.

We only stayed 4 nights so the long term residents were friendly but reserved. The sites were small with limited parking on site. Remote parking seemed to be available. Wi-Fi was difficult to use and slow. Very pet friendly with good walking areas. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The camp is older but adequately maintained. It is close to Sanibel (30 min), shopping, and dining. A hard place to beat for the price. We would return again. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Travel Trailer.

Spaces in main park are somewhat tight and short, but plenty of room in the newer area. On site cafe, lots of activities going on daily, quite a few fulltime residents, everyone friendly, nice pond with unfriendly ducks, pet friendly. If we returned would definitely ask for the newer section. Rate reflects weekly less 10% Good Sam discount. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Fifth Wheel.
