This location is in no way a "RV Resort" as the title implies. Fanciful marketing. No pool, no clubhouse, no services, no staff. So if you are expecting a elevated experience based upon the park name, it's a good thing you're reading these reviews, there are other parks nearby that would be better. What Sugar Sands is, is a 10 space plot of land that is improved with full RV hook-ups. It's best selling feature is it's location on Matlacha (island) between Cape Coral and Pine Island. The park is located on a waterfront parcel, although only two of the sites actually have a view of the water. The road "Porpoise Point" isn't marked and is very easily missed on arrival (I did). Just after crossing the draw bridge, look immediately to your left, you will see a fish chartering business and if you look closely and drive slow, you'll see a slanted driveway and a Sugar Sands sign. That's your turn. The "resort" is unmarked half way down. Intuitively you'll see a few RV's on your left. That's it. You'll have to park blocking the road until you can make contact with the camp host (not in bungalow, they were in the Silver/Black class A when we were there, to find out what space you're assigned. In hindsight (or with the advice we should have been given making the reservation) there is a largish vacant lot on the right just after making the turn onto Porpoise Point. Pull in there and walk down to the campground. Save lots of hassle. We're 60' overall (37'TT+Truck) and there is nowhere to turn around on this narrow one lane road. The campground itself is small and tight with very limited maneuvering room, especially for trailers. Hookups are fine, power and water good. WIFI poor. Laundry is FREE, although they only have 1 washer. Hosts were friendly. Little "beach" area with chairs overlooking channel. Several eateries within walking distance. All in all, a nice quiet place, but expensive and not providing amenities that would justify the high rates. We camped at Sugar Sand Beach RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

You "Can" bike to Pine Island, but there's not much to see there. Day trips to Sanibel lighthouse, Edison winter estate. Visit Wicked Dolphin Rum in Cape Coral. Closet shopping is about 3 miles into Cape Coral. Good breakfast at Perfect Cup, lunch at Blue Dog, both a short walk.

Great place, great location, and great people in a relaxed fun environment. The owners and park host are extremely friendly ,accommodating and approachable , which appeared to rub off on the guest and set the mood of the park. Bring an adapter if you only can have 30 amp. However, the park host offered to provide one if I didn't have one. Extremely pet friendly . Full access , great AT&T service, heard the Wi-Fi is good as well but didn't use it. Community area including tiki bar ,fire place, and boat dock. A couple of sites are rather large and accommodated my travel trailer and two additional cars towards the entrance. The other sites are not huge but adequate but better than most RV waterfront parks. Would have been 10 but they did not have showering facility. However they are in the process of building it and not much of an issue for most TT, 5th wheel, or RV.

Bring cash to pay for the site , but there is an ATM across the street. Pets are allowed and encouraged to be off their leach as long as they are not aggressive. Boat dock could be difficult to get in out of your boat depending on height and tide. We will definitely be back. We camped at Sugar Sand Beach RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Previous reviews spot on. Not a resort, but a wonderful location right on the water...as in no more than 50 feet away. A lot of good places to eat within easy walking distance. Nice community area, fire pit, chairs on the sand, a hammock. Nice rustic clubhouse with community library. Would certainly stay here again. Was not crowded when we were here, not sure how it would be with all 10 or 11 sites full. Can't remember if there was a discount for AAA etc. We camped at Sugar Sand Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The Italian Stop correcting "restaurant" is worth going to, a bit of a walk....suggest driving. Half a dozen other places almost right out your front door.

This is a great tiny RV park, with only 9 or 10 total spots. We felt lucky to get in here (2 nights @ $70/night), and it's really worth it. The site is back-in only, shell and quite level. Some had picnic tables but we did not. Otherwise, good full hookups. Free WiFi; we had two large RVs between us and the WiFi router, with no signal for us. But I put our external WiFi antenna up, sticking way above the RVs, and got a great signal... enough to stream movies. The shared community shack was quite nice -- including book and DVD lending library -- and the dock and view of the bridge and river was very nice. Did I mention it's right on the water? Very nice! The grounds are well kept, with lots of landscaping, community fire pit (which we enjoyed one night), places to sit, etc. Free use of washer/dryer, too. Due to our short stay we really didn't have time to explore or enjoy the local area, but when we drove through the town it was quite lively and seemed like it would have a lot of interesting things to do and see. Even though it's a bit pricey, we would love to come back here for a longer stay. We camped at Sugar Sand Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We ate at Miceli's, a very good Italian restaurant (with an Oreo cake to die for). If you go planning on waiting 20 minutes for an outdoor table, you'll be happy you did, as they have live music and pleasant ambiance.

This park totally fits the vibe that is Matlacha. Very eclectic. Walk to shops, bars and restaurants. There is a clubhouse with a kitchen, TV, etc. that appears to be in the finish stages. A community fire pit , tiki bar, lounge chairs, boat dock... We met several nice couples and had a great time. The spots are tight but everyone, including some really big rigs fit in. The Yacht Club in Coral Gables, about 20 minutes away provides a beach and a pool. We would return. We camped at Sugar Sand Beach RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Decided to visit based on prior review and resorts' website. Calling this park a resort is somewhat of a stretch. There are very few amenities. What they do have is a beautiful piece of land fronting Matlacha Sound to park your RV. They list eleven sites but if they were all full, you would be packed very tightly. We, however, along with two of our friends and their motorhomes, had the resort pretty much to ourselves. It was great, and we had a good time exploring downtown Matlacha (mat-la-shay). Several good seafood restaurants and art galleries. We plan on returning for a few days in the fall before the busy winter months. If you are looking for a few days in "old Florida," this is your place. Just don't expect the usual campground amenities. We camped at Sugar Sand Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

What a wonderful find! This small RV park has only 11 spots available for rent, and the family that runs it is awesome! Beautiful setting on the water with a dock to fish off of or watch the dolphins and manatee as well as free use of a couple of kayaks to paddle around the canals and mangroves. The owners are continually making improvements to this place, and right before we got there they put in a FREE washer and dryer. Large community building setup with a projector that we made use of on several occasions! Outdoor area has tiki bars, a great fire pit, palm trees, beautiful dolphin sculpture. I really enjoyed this place, and the town it's in is the icing on the cake. You can walk to various local shops and restaurants, and the county park is right next door for those that like to walk or run for exercise. There are many great beaches nearby, and if you want a free pretty beach to spend the day on, head towards Sanibel island, and while on the bridge there, pull off on either side in one of the many free parking areas before you come to the toll. We got very spoiled staying here and hope to make it back again soon! We camped at Sugar Sand Beach RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
