This park is really nice, with long paved sites. There aren't as many trees as I would have liked to see for shade but you either will get the morning sun or afternoon sun depending on your site you select. We opted to be on Site 22 initially, which is on the water and changed as the afternoon sun was unbearable in the afternoon on patio side. We switched to Site 18 and we're glad we did as we could barbecue in the late afternoon for dinner and watch TV outside in the shade provided by motor home and awning. The campground itself is really clean, well maintained, and host was very nice and friendly. It was fun to watch the big yachts and fishing boats wait to go through the lock. This place does not have sewer hookups, but for us it was not a problem, but there is a dump station.There isn't a lot to do here, but if you just want to chill, this is a great place. We drove to Naples and Fort Myers for day trips. All in all, I would come back here to just relax and not do anything. Great park! - etp

Nice campground on the waterway connecting Lake Okeechobee to the Gulf. Sites are level and well laid out and nicely spaced. You can fish in the waterway but otherwise no access such as swimming! - ournextstop

Very clean, well kept COE park. The campground is located right at a lock & dam on the Okeechobee Waterway. Water/electric utilities worked great. You can walk down and view the boats going through the locks. There are lots of fishing docks available. We stayed here 6 nights. - jacknpeg

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

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 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

We enjoyed a complimentary 4 day stay by attending the Fort Myers RV Show. We had a wonderful stay with time spent in the pool, playing bingo and watching the multitude of activities that were taking place as a result of a week long celebration of the park and its residents! The restrooms and showers were beautifully redone and very up-to-date. There was a problem with the water that you were not informed about until you drove out the entrance. Because of the rain, many of the sites were muddy grass because of the soft dirt. The staff and the residents were friendly and welcoming. It was a joy to stay here. - Summer Minnesotan

This is one of the nicest places we have stayed & have already booked for Jan. 2017. The staff was warm & friendly helping you get set up both coming & departing, lots to do here with daily activities. The comfort stations are second to none as far as being clean & fairly new, the sites are clean & well laid out for big rigs in the Glen area of the park. Pool was great also with a very nice activity center. You will meet a lot of nice people here. There is a new Walmart coming in nearby with several good restaurants nearby; traffic is not a problem in Labelle. - 1972 camaro

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

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

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

This park is not a resort unless you are a golf lover. Even then that is pushing it. Shower areas are filthy and scary to shower in. Laundry is very small both areas have only 4 washers. Power goes off all the time here without warning. Not very good for electronics in the unit. When water is working the pressure is very poor. Park is over 15 miles to the nearest grocery store so laying in supplies is a must. Office staff makes up rules as they go. Policies change constantly without notice to anyone. I would not stay in this joke of a park again. - cowboysailor

Are you kidding; run from this place if you want your sanity. This park is said to be in Moore Haven, but that is the furthest town from the park. You are 20 minutes from any town. The people who run the park have no clue what they are doing. The office is only open Monday - Friday from 10 am - 5 pm. They do not carry any RV supplies of any kind. They have an overpriced restaurant, golf course and the campers plan the activities not the employees. Things break down and they do not fix it. Our electric meter was broken and instead of fixing it, they decided on a flat rate to just charge us. The staff is more than clueless on how to bill and what they are doing. While we were here, the power and water went out together with no notice and no one was informed as to why, but the entire park was out. The spaces are nice, but no one obeys the rules. Dogs run without leashes. People who have camped here every winter for the past 10 years are not going to be returning to this park. I would avoid this park at all costs. No one even knows who the owners are. - dkjellander

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

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

This is one of the most beautiful areas for canoeing, but creek was very low this time of year. Most of the campsites are very roomy and well spaced apart. The RV loops are further from the creek and boat launch. If you want RV hookups, Loop A is the shadiest, but furthest from the bathhouse. For a creek side tent site, #62 is one of the best. If only they had electric hookups in the tent area. They used to many years ago with previous owners. Bathhouse in the RV section is much nicer. Tent area bathhouse is very old. Due to a rain shower, floor was extremely muddy and had no TP. Some of the tent people drove up in their trucks with lots of kids and used the RV bathhouse: making it very noisy and crowded. Campground is busy on weekends, but quiet during the week (typical). - On the Road again 11

This campground is on a huge wildlife management area. There are three different parts to the campground. Two parts are primitive camp sites only. One of those is on the creek and the other is on a lake. The RV part is in an area between the primitive parts. There are shady RV spots, but not many. Most are very sunny. When the train came through it was kind of neat and it only happened one time while we were there. The store is well stocked with food and other supplies and the people who run it are very nice. The bathrooms were as clean as campground bathrooms can be expected to be. They were relatively close to all the RV sites, but pretty far from the primitive sites. They have a laundry facilities. Wood was directly delivered to your campsite when you bought it. It was a friendly place in a nice setting. It wasn't one of those huge KOA sites that has everything, but depending on what you like, this place may be just for you. It is in the middle of no where, so be prepared to travel if you have to run to the grocery store or want to eat out somewhere. This is a very nice CG to stay at. - MichaelW

We atayed here for a couple of months this past winter and came back for a week in March. It was lovely and the wildflowers were blooming everywhere. We love that the park is a certified wildlife habitat and that we could go birdwatching nearly everywhere! And for exciting fun at night and tasty dinners we could zip to the Seminole Casino for some fun in about 15 minutes! - Jerrilynn1

Older RV park but this lady owner did a fantastic job with her park and guests . She makes you feel at home very friendly and sweet. Nice and shady in most spots and very clean restroom/shower houses. Has a laundry room and game room too. Very nice and quiet in a natural setting. Loved it and would stay here again . - crystal m.

This is a wonderful family owned RV Park in Felda,Fl just outside of LaBelle in Hendry County. We loved it's central location to just about everything. The beaches were close by. There are many shopping, dining and movie options and the exciting Seminole Indian Casino was only 10 minutes away! We could fish at nearby Lake Trafford and we also liked that we could go into the city then return to our quiet country RV park to ride bikes and just relax. We will definitely be back. It was also nice that they have a FREE outdoor WiFi internet hot spot. - Jerrilynn1
