This older campground seems to be slowly deteriorating. Sites can be close or very spaced. Landscaping is neglected. The best part of this campground are the wonderful residents. There was no activity in the Chiki-Hut and few other activities. The Shuffleboard court is in sad shape with cracks and weeds growing through the court. The hot tub was a nice 102 degrees, but had lots of leaves in it. The pool was never above 72 degrees and usually empty. The was a problem with the water, and we had to find out from the neighbor not to drink it. We should have been informed by management The roads in the park are deteriorating and in need of repairs. Our site had a shared access with two other sites. The monthly rate was $730. We will not return. - Summer Minnesotan

This is an older campground that boasts mature pine and palm trees and "grass" between sites. Quite a variation in site dimensions but mostly comfortable for spacing. Grass is not watered any more so is rather brown and sparse in the winter months. Nice paved streets and concrete parking slabs with side extension for table and chairs. Picnic tables provided. Perhaps 50% Permanent sites. Very friendly residents. Morning breakfast in Chiki-Hut by volunteers. Some activities. Shuffleboard, Horseshoe pits seldom used but in nice shape. Hot tub at 102, Pool at 80. Monthly rate about $650. Walking distance to Groceries. Closest spots a block from street making for rather quiet surroundings. - easydoesit

Excellent New RV Resort - They are still finishing this resort. It is about 2/3 complete. The sites are all full hook-up and are very large and very nice. There is plenty of room for large RVs along with whatever other vehicle you have (Tow or Towed). All of the sites are paved with pavers and will have tables and grills for your use. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is already one bathhouse and supposedly another on the way. The laundry room has four sets of large capacity machines. The meeting/clubhouse is just about complete. Stay at one of the sites along the lake for wonderful views of sunrise/sunsets, depending on which way you face. - ben31rv

"Wow" is all we can say. This is a beautiful RV park. Not complete yet, but it's going to be an amazing first class park. Looking forward to next season returning to our paved site, gorgeous pool, organic produce mart, beauty salon and exciting activities right here on site. Brand new everything. Welcoming and spotless! Super friendly and family owned and operated. Feeling blessed to have our spot reserved. - HavingFunFromWisconsin

This is a new park under construction with an opening date in the Spring 2017. I have not actually stayed there yet, but I have already made reservations for next winter season, 2017/2018. I am generally there about twice per week to check on the progress, and I have spent quite a bit of time with the owner/developer and his daughter who will manage the park once complete. It is a privately owned park, and the owners are making every effort to create a well maintained, landscaped, and pleasant park with wide interior roads. All sites will be paver bricks with patio. There is a large bathhouse with private showers and laundry facility. At the back of the laundry/bathhouse, which faces the pond, there is a small patio that will be screened in and house a small coffee bar. The park will have a heated pool and clubhouse along with an activities director to keep everyone as busy as they want. The Rec Center, which houses the office, exercise equipment room, and meeting room will also house a warming kitchen with refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher to be used by resident groups in the park. The back of the Rec Center will lead to the swimming pool and a screened in porch. There is a beauty shop on site, and a restaurant and fresh vegetable store are planned. There will be a fishing pier on the pond and a walking path around it. Currently all the pads around the east of the pond are in. Today they were spreading top soil for the sod. There is an irrigation system for the grass. The shower/laundry facility is just about finished along with the clubhouse. The pool opens the 1st of March. Speaking with the manager she said they already have reservations for this coming March, and next year's winter season is starting to fill up. As we were making our reservations, our neighbors from our current park, came in and made reservations for next year as well. My intent with this review is to inform people, who may want to stay off the beaten SW Florida Snowbird path, that there is a new park for them to research. Rate given in review is for a 4 month daily rate. - Indy Glenn

We didn't do the daily rate, stayed a month for $700.
Beautiful, clean, friendly park but waaaaay overpriced.
Mostly permanent mobiles and "florida homes" with about 15% RV's.
Right on the river (from Lake O all the way to the Gulf at Ft. Meyers), with its own launch ramp and docks.
Joined some friends during our winter in "the south", just to check it out.
The entire place revolves around their "activities".....ain't my thing.
Management is stiff, formal, and unyielding, but "inmates" are very nice.
If you have the money and get excited over shuffleboard, this is the place. - MajorOz

We "camped" at Whisper Creek from Mid December 2016 thru mid March 2017. We had site 451 in the "The Glenn", which is a grass site with a concrete patio. The park is well maintained by a great work-camper crew. The office staff is a work-camper/paid staff combination and are friendly and helpful. The shower houses are spotless and there is a full size laundromat on site. Whisper Creek has a very active resident committee, fully supported by management offering many activities and entertainment options. The residents who own their park models are friendly and welcome shorter stay residents. There is an inviting heated pool under a Lānaʻi (screened area). Many of the activities are very active and well attended. There are Shuffle Board and Pétanque (look it up) sessions and tournaments along with dances, karaoke, bingo, craft classes, Red Hat Women, bowling, lunches, dinners, etc. There is a end of season Festival Week that celebrates the residents with special activities, games, contests, and meals. In 2017 the week coincided with Mardi Gras with a Mardi Gras theme, which also included a Golf Cart Parade. The park also offers golf cart rentals. One note, the park was sold in 2016 and the new owners were in process of taking over the management of the park while we were there. - Indy Glenn

We came here based on reviews. Big mistake. The maintenance crew was excellent. The office manager was rude, arrogant, and probably a lot of other terms. The season was rainy, very rainy. CG can't be blamed for that, but we found that the office manager was so bad that we couldn't get any help with mud ruts and just plain mud. We talked with a great many of the residents who maybe were afraid to complain for fear of retribution from this manager. The entertainment was great, but most of it had already been sold during the previous seasons to to residents who had permanent units. The term "resort" means to me a "mobile home" park with non-permanent residents who lived there full time. We had problems with mail, water being shut off with no notice, and sign tied to a pole advising to boil water until further notice. Without any personal notice to residents, quite a few times the electric was off. WiFi was poor at the best. We were told most places charged for WiFi- not so in my experience. - capemaal

We stayed in The Glenns area of this park which comprises of large grass sites with full service. The campground host and staff were very friendly and accommodating. There are a number of long term residences here but they are all very well kept and the residents are friendly and speak highly of their experiences staying here. A very nice park and we will be stopping here again. - Irish2

What a beautiful place with very friendly people. It's kind of far out, but a Walmart, restaurants 5-8 miles away. Look forward to visiting again during "in" season when they have non-stop activities and restaurant and bar open. We stayed on a beautifully landscaped, shady lot on the lake just across from the pool and two spas. - PushingUS

Riverbend is an upscale RV resort situated in a beautifully landscaped setting with large, paved, private sites. Many of the sites are privately owned, mostly by retirees who come to Florida for the winter. Ours was a pull-in, facing a lake with a fountain. We were there for three nights with a group of 15 other coaches that were scattered all over the park. (Probably due to the way the rental pool works.) Even though our group received a discount and it was off-peak season, we paid over $50 per night. (The restaurant was already closed for the season.) In peak season river sites are $140 per night. The fee does not include free WiFi, and our cable TV connection was poor. Landscapers woke us up at 7 AM, trimming trees and bushes. I would not stay here again because the park is not convenient to Fort Myers. Sanibel is over one hour away, and Fort Myers beach is close to an hour away as well. However, I imagine this would be a fun place to stay in peak season when the restaurant is open, especially if you're interested in getting involved in the activities and don't plan to drive into Fort Myers. - Lyn T

We stayed at RiverBend from December through April. We arrived as renters and bought a lot before we left. The resort is away from the Fort Myers traffic and congestion but close enough to enjoy restaurants and the theater. We drive a 45F MH and access to the resort is east as is navigating around the resort and into the sites as the roads and sites are wide. As others have noted, the landscaping and grounds are lovely and the club houses are first rate. Utilities are good and the resort pays close attention to the quality of drinking water and waste water collection and processing. There is lots to do and if one is bored, it's their own fault. We found the people within the resort to be extremely friendly which prompted us to join the owner community. Renters and owners alike join in activities and most volunteer for one of the many "jobs" within the resort. Makes for a good sense of community. We decided we wanted a more permanent place within the resort. We will be returning here hopefully, for many more fun winters. - LvR

We stopped here overnight, its about 20 min from Ft Myers Fl. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Looks like a nice snowbird campground without all the bells and whistles of the high dollar resorts in the area. There is no shade in the campground. Full hook ups but the water has a smell. Campground is on the grounds of a nice church retreat and borders the Caloosahatchee River. - Psi500

We swung by looking for a future campground. It was very promising with a well wooded entrance. We stopped at the office to get literature, the keeper talked to us, she was very nice, we got permission to go to the RV park and take a look. We drove through nice woods and came out to the RV park and there it was, a loop on the open plains, no trees, and the motor homes sardined in full sun with no trees or brush. I was so disappointed we just left. For those that don't mind, the inexpensive rate may be fine. - drsolo

Riverside Retreat has a campground/RV park open to all. Also hosting a camp for churches, organizations, schools, etc. the campground/RV park is separate from that camp area. Situated on the Caloosahatchee River, Riverside Retreat's motto is, "It's the Nature of the Place." It is a quiet park in a natural setting. You may spy gopher tortoises, bobcats, or armadillos on any of the hiking paths. Canoe or kayak the Caloosahatchee. The roads and sites are not paved, but it is a full hook-up campground with a friendly staff. We highly recommend this little gem of a campground. We visit every winter. - Dawn1955

Our rate was America the Senior Pass. We like the sites 21-30 toward the back of the park as they have an awesome view of the river and the locks. Recommend surge protection on your electric as power has tripped on us & did seriously impact another RV. We saw bald eagles and an otter family. Not much for kids to do. Beautiful paved road, concrete pads with crushed stone sites & each site has covered picnic table, a grill & a fire pit. A wonderful spot to unwind, read, maybe fish. We love it here! It would be a 10 if the sites had sewer. - R&S

Typical of the Corps of Engineer parks we've stayed at, this is a very nice campground with paved roads and pads, two restrooms and a dump station. It is situated on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River which flows from Lake Okeechobee. Together with the St. Lucie River/Canal which connects Lake Okeechobee with the Atlantic Ocean, this waterway stretches 154 miles across Florida from coast to coast. Sites in the western portion of this campground generally have more space between sites and has more pull throughs. All sites have 30 and 50 amp service and the water quality and pressure was good. Power did go off at least twice during a 7 day stay but came back on quickly. The restrooms are roomy but aren't being cleaned thoroughly. Most/all sites have a covered picnic table, fire pit, and BBQ within a gravel area and most sites have at least a little shade. Those camped on the north side of the east-west park road have a nicer view of the river, which has boat/yacht traffic and good fishing opportunities from the several access points within the park. La Belle is considerably closer and larger than Moore Haven. - Camera Buff

We are annual lessees and have seen numerous improvements over the last year. Some projects move a little slow but eventually get done. The new owner has recognized that annuals are his bread and butter and is treating them fairly. Announced in writing last fall there would be no lease increase for 2017/18. Lots of amenities in the park (see their website) and recent newsletter listed more improvements are in the works. Office and park maintenance staff are friendly and helpful. - PT Traveller

Checkin was smooth, fast and friendly. Our site was level and fully serviced e/w/s. Cell and Sat reception was very good. Their campground wifi was iffy - it is being replaced by new provider? Pool was heated but could use a good powerwash cleaning. Many full-time winter snowbirds. Lots of activities. Overall friendly atmosphere. Only negative was dealing with their new Harbormaster(?). Totally lacks personal skills when dealing with customers. Didn't see that side when he was around staff/ management, just when not in their presence. Rumor was he is going to run their new riverside bar? That should be interesting! Will return and recommend to others. - Snowbird22

I rated this park a 5 because of the fact it's a primitive campground area. Take CR 832 from highway 29 near Felda. Then turn on the last road on the right called Wild Cow Grade. The road into the campground is gravel but not bad. The numbered sites on Panther Pond would be too small for anything over roughly 27 feet and are well shaded. However just a little farther in there is an open field area that would take a big rig and generators are allowed to be run there. I've seen deer, hogs, a bobcat, otters, gators and many bird species. The quiet and scenery are great and well off the busy typical park. Miles of roads and trails. I find it better than Everglades national park. - Goinmobile

This is "old FL" section of the State. Campground is on Fish Eating Creek, which is a great fishing destination. Kayaking is good but low water level in the Winter limits it. Sites were level and grassy and nicely spaced out. Pack your supplies before coming as no convenient shopping near by. We enjoyed our stay and will be back! - ournextstop

Great hiking & beautiful creek views. Very much a weekend haven - but by Sunday afternoon the park is yours! Great wildlife - bring your binoculars! No much else to do without a long drive. Great getaway to just chill. - kettlebelle

The park is in a beautiful natural area of Florida. It is set on a narrow river that is filled with gators and fish. They offer canoeing, kayaking, and nature trails. The price of rentals is reasonable. The service is another matter. If you go on the weekends you'll wait for service and the staff is less than kind. The canoe/kayak staff didn't say hello, can I help you or anything. They were extremely rude to everyone I saw come up for service. FYI, the park is in the middle of nowhere so you should ensure that you arrive prepared. There are no restaurants, markets or convenience stores within 25 miles plus. Dirt pads and when it rains, you'll get muddy. As many of my reviews in the past have stated, this is another park that has spent next to nothing on the park in the way of maintenance or updating the tables, sites, swing sets, or anything else. Concrete picnic tables that have been there for decades are crumbling. The only upgrades have been up to the Camp Store and boat ramp. But, if you're looking for a way to see the "old Florida", the place is worth a few days. Try and stay here during the week. - wmrkl
