This place is a dump. When it rains everything is under water- little drainage- must use pumps to remove water. Grass sites that tires sink into when wet. They use planks & plywood to help get RVs in & out of sites. County dump just down the road, and the smell is unbearable at times. Wife complained of constant damp swamp smell and the water smells like swamp water. Many old old dingy permanent trailers. Paid $40/month for Internet and was constantly kicked off or very slow. Will never return to this campground again! We camped at Sun n Shade RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The Lemoncello Restaurant down the road was good but not their pizza. The Irish Celtic Ray Pub and the Fishermens Village had some reasonable meals. The Turtle Club had excellent fare.

This is a Snowbird park, with a few full time residents and fair amount of park models, but not a trailer park. Out of season it's a Ghost town. We stayed 1-1-15/ 3-1-15. 850.00 a month for 50 amp. Park is old and it shows. There is a full calendar for snowbirds in season but doesn't offer much outta season. Pool is small, laundry was broke more than functional. Bathhouse weren't nasty, but far from nice. Sites are all grass, fairly level. When it rains most of the sites will flood. Multiple units stuck trying leave if it rained the night before. Roadways are paved which is nice for walking, and there is a decent nature trail. Cops were called more than once for theft and drug sales. We started referring to it as the Sun and Shady. Also there is very little shade in the park. Must purchase WiFi, can't remember the price, but it did work with pretty good speed. Location isn't bad its in between Punta Gorda and Fort Myers. They do allow all Breed and Size dogs, which is rare for SW FL. We camped at Sun n Shade RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We recently stayed at Sun-N-Shade RV Park in Punta Gorda for 15 nights while visiting my parents in a nearby modular home park. This is an older modular home park converted into an RV facility. The streets are extremely narrow and some of the sites are difficulty to navigate. There is no cable and WiFi is an additional, exorbitant charge. Our site was mostly grass and when it rained became a septic smelling swamp. On the good side, the staff and residents were friendly and helpful and they have availability for short-term parking during the prime season. No other sites were available for 100's of miles around. They also had a storage site available for our RV while we took a 7-day cruise before starting our stay. We will probably be back due to availability and close proximity to my parents.

Very friendly and helpful management. Streets are narrow, however, I was able to maneuver a 40' fifth wheel with no problems. Grass sites were a little soft, but again no major issues. Only stayed one night. Residents are very friendly. We camped at Sun n Shade RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were going to stay longer than the minimum 3 days, but we had a weird impression of the place when we first drove in. It is an older park with a lot of park models. It was fairly well taken care of but not our style. The swimming pool was fine and overall it was OK but we did not want to stay there very long. We probably will not be back. We camped at Sun n Shade RV Park in a Motorhome.

Our site was near the workshop. The workers are up early starting law mowers, using electric saws which means if you want to sleep in or take a nap it can be noisy. They work all day too. No hot tub. We didn't join in the activities, but they have a lot. We camped at Sun n Shade RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects one week at the Passport America rate and one week at the Good Sam rate. This was a quiet, clean park. There are a couple older, permanent trailers here but they are kept up. The clubhouse was active with bingo, karaoke, movie night and other activities. Overall this is very nice park. The only negatives I could add would be that there are not very many 50 amp sites, which wasn't an issue for us, and the sites are narrow. I would have rated this place higher if it weren't for those two things. We stayed here on an end site (151) in a 40' fifth wheel and would stay again.

We reserved a certain site two months in advance, they did not honor our reservation. We were put in the worst site of the campground. We got to look at the garbage dumpster, a makeshift work area and piles of split wood. We did move to a new site which was much better, but we had the inconvenience of moving. WiFi: I suggest you buy the most expensive, I didn't and could not get internet most of each day. If you have a dog, beware in warm weather. Behind the campground rattlesnakes are seen.

No review for this one in awhile, so thought I'd chime in. We stayed here because the price was right for a FL winter, and it was a last minute reservation. There were no dogs roaming free, no pet waste, and the management seems competent but somewhat aloof. There are just a handful of 50amp sites out of the 300. There seems to be some activities on a regular basis if you are so inclined, but we were not. Our main complaint is that the drainage in this park is very poor, so with big rains areas of it floods. We had water up to the bottom of our rims at times. A few of the 50amp sites are a bit higher - just don't be in the sites that back up to the drainage ditches! We camped at Sun n Shade RV Park in a Motorhome.

Park is clean and people friendly! We registered with friends and were supposed to be across from each other. Instead we were on opposite ends of the park. There are permanent full time residents in this park and many trailers are very old and un-kept. Wi-Fi worked part of the time. We camped at Sun n Shade RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Dogs run free (suppose to be on leash). Pit Bulls there with the Managers. Pit Bulls are aggressive. Dog waste not cleaned up. Grounds not kept up. Pond is an eyesore. Palm trees not taken care of. Management borrows money from residents. We camped at Sun n Shade RV Park in a Motorhome.
