We stayed here from Nov. To Feb. Enjoyed the great friendly environment and lots of activities. Great warm pools! Boat club lets you access rides on other campers' boats to eat at waterfront restaurants in the area. As well, there is a captain who will take you out deep sea fishing for a nominal fee. Local restaurant is very popular with everyone (you could walk there). We hope to come back next year. We camped at Upriver RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We were just passing through. Staff took us to the site. Was a good concrete pad, but not totally level. Water connection leaked a little, so I had to over tighten and remove my filter. Grounds are very nice, mostly snow birds. Very attractive campground and would easily stay there again, although a little pricey, then again, that's Florida. We camped at Upriver RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed just one night while passing through. Check in was fast and easy, we were escorted to our site. Everyone in campground is super friendly. Sites are a little close but fine. We camped at Upriver RV Resort in a Motorhome.

There is a full page on rules of the park and it is not enforced especially dogs, they run free owners do not pick up behind them and the 30 lbs. rule does not apply or the number of dogs per lot you can complain to management and they say they will check into it and don't do a thing. After paying around $1,100 a month you would think that they would mow the grass with out asking to get it mowed. Management seems to lean toward whom ever is staying the longest or paying the most I should say. It is a nice RV Resort if they would if they would follow thru with the rules would even be nicer I should say. We camped at Upriver RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is past it's prime. Dirty, grass is unkempt, old exercise room has rusted equipment. Mostly seasonal campers who have been coming for 30 yrs. We would not return. Rate is based on monthly stay. We camped at Upriver RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

They refused to offer us the off season 50% Passport America rate even though they are listed in the Passport America catalog.

The super-site we stayed on was plenty large and concrete at 100 ft long, and wide spacing between sites, but few if any trees to provide shade.

The bath house was clean and modern, but poorly ventilated with no air conditioning and very small cubicles for showers. They did have a door for privacy, but a shelf that could only hold a pair of sunglasses.

They advertise WiFi at the sites, but even with nobody here, the signal was super slow and weak. The clubhouse did have a computer and printer for use, and the WiFi at the clubhouse was good.

The clubhouse was large and modern with a small library and an exercise room. The pool and spa were fairly large and clean. Their brochure advertises a non regulation 9 hole golf course at the front of the property, but all we saw was a field of overgrown weeds.

The park is directly north of the power station, and it can clearly be heard day and night. If you want to go anywhere from here, you have to get on the expressway and drive for about 20 minutes. There really is nothing around here to look at or visit. The beach is a good 50 minute drive, with no traffic. It is a good place for an overnight stop if you are traveling.

We would not stay here again. The off-season rate of $42 a night was overpriced and not worth it. We camped at Upriver RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The Marathon gas station just down the street to the west, Lomans, has a fantastic meat market. Sounds strange I know, but it gets great reviews.

We got to the park the last week of March so it was full, we took the last spot in the "supersites" area. Plenty of room for our 44' toy hauler with both the side & back patios open & our truck to park on the all concrete site with room under our awning for the motorcycle - still on the concrete.

The full timers that lived there year around as well as the snowbirds down for 2-6mo. were all very nice, friendly, & accepting of us. The staff were wonderful, helpful, & friendly! Once the park started to clear out with people heading back home, we asked to move to a new site for a better view & we were told "not a problem." Great place! We camped at Upriver RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent pull through Super Sites, plenty long enough for our 65' motorhome and trailer combo. level, concrete pads and wide road access makes this section great. Very convenient to I-75. Some of the friendliest people on earth. Like all Florida campgrounds, it fills up for January, February and March. We only stayed for one night but will probably be back for a month next year.

Very, very tight backing into one of the transient spots with a 40' Class A - I always needed help as the residents park their cars in the street in front of you. Nothing wrong with the site. It's an expensive resort that squishes you in and if I had to stay there again, I would want the big pull through sites, which cost more. We camped at Upriver RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Upriver is a very nice RV resort. I stayed in a pull through site and had very friendly neighbors. I would definitely go back next winter and recommend this park for anyone staying in the Fort Myers area. We camped at Upriver RV Resort in a Motorhome.

There are three sections to this campground; regular, canal, and super sites. The canal sites are primarily seasonal park models. Regular sites are short and have either grass sites (parking on grass) with a concrete patio or full concrete parking with integral patio. Super sites have long concrete parking and patio. An RV storage area, maintenance shed, and overflow parking are between regular and super sites. Regular sites would be rated a 6 while the super sites a 9 rating. Overall I gave the park an 8 rating due to the general appearance of the campground, responsiveness management to infrastructure issues , lack of landscaping, and the marginal internet network. Early in our month stay the internet Wi-Fi (at our site) worked very little. New Wi-Fi antenna improved the internet access. All activities at the park are coordinated and funded by a residents' association through small fees or raffles. Residents staying at the park are very friendly and welcoming. As previously mentioned by other reviewers the campground is convenient to most points of interest. Rate does not include cost for electric & water. We will likely return. We camped at Upriver RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

A lot of permanent residents, like you find in any Florida Park, everybody was very friendly. The staff upon check in was very friendly and helpful, the site was a little tight getting into and out, but once parked it was very comfortable, plenty of room for slides. We spent a week here and it was very enjoyable. We camped at Upriver RV Resort in a Motorhome.
