Wifi is fast. Bathrooms are clean but the one near my site, on the south side, had an uninviting shower area. My neighbor recommended I use the bathroom on the north side. Staff was courteous and efficient. There's a swimming pool. The grounds are well kept. My site was sand and shell and not level, with a concrete pad for a picnic table. Be aware this place packs in the rigs, and the roads are not wide. I feel like I'm in high density, multi-family zoning. I thought the quoted price was high, but a 7-night discount brought the cost to a reasonable $47/night. I didn't check out any other locations while here, but my neighbor did, and he believed this was the best choice. Also, is this the price it takes to have responsive internet service? If so, then I shouldn't complain too much. I did have a difficult time finding a place to stay in this area (granted, I waited until several weeks before to reserve), so maybe the price reflected that. I would return. - John_K

A lot of junky permanents here. Also the office forgot I was coming and didn't leave out my packet. Luckily a person was working late (6pm) to give me my info and site number. I would not return. - RonH999

Staff is very friendly and go out of their way to help. Our site was a concrete pull through and shaded. Roads can be a little tight for the larger rigs. Convenient to restaurants and shopping. - twbbsb

The day before we arrived we called them. We were told the site we had would not be able to accommodate our fifth wheel toy hauler with the deck extended. We were told they could only accommodate a 45 foot rig. With our deck extended, we totaled 50 feet. When we made our reservation, we were assured they could accommodate this size. When we questioned them about this , their response was we fired that person. They did end up giving us a spot that allowed us to extend the deck. We were lucky that our "back yard" was a construction site and therefore did not have a trailer on it-which in turn gave us the extra footage we needed to extend the deck. The second issue I had with this campground is terrible customer service. We were told when we booked this place that a beautiful new pool was going in and would be open December 1st. When we arrived, we were told the pool was not open yet, but would be in a few days. We were told this every week during our stay. The pool never opened and they were never up front about it. They offered us a 75% refund if we wanted to leave. Really? It's spring break, we're new to the area and quite frankly we were overwhelmed from traveling. They knew this and counted on us choosing to stay. In hindsight I will choose to leave if I'm ever put in that position again. No compensation for this important amenity was offered. The owner acts like she is doing you the favor by allowing you to stay there. She kicks people out if they disagree with anything she does. I don't understand how these rv park owners get away with this blatant deception. I'm guessing it's some kind of innkeeper rights. I think this park needs to be a full time place only. The full timers are very nice and I'm guessing they are getting some kind of kick back from the owner or they're terrified of her. I will say the location was nice. Tucked back in a wooded area and off the main drag with nice shade. I did like the location of this park. I did not use any facilities there, however I was advised by others (living in the park), not to do laundry there. So,we didn't.
A lot of spaces were under construction due to the hurricane, so I don't want to criticize about the condition of some of the sites.
In conclusion, my main problem was the pool. I have recently looked at the Shady Acres website and found they took the pool off their list of amenities. It's a start I guess. - Jacasek4

The guests who come there are a really great fun bunch. The manager/owner of this park is the pits. She is nasty. She treats people like they are beneath her station in life. Don't question anything the woman says or she will go off like a rocket. Don't question anything she does in this park; she will throw you out. There were 6 campers evicted during our stay because they pissed off the owner. She makes it quite plain it is her way or the highway and don't question anything she says or does. They advertise a pool and cafe and neither is open and hasn't been open all season. Very poorly maintained grounds. High weeds. Hadn't been mowed or trimmed in some time. Stay away from this park. Very very bad. - Granny go

We booked this park 8 months in advance for a 3 month stay, starting in Dec. We were very specific on the site location that we wanted. No trees and in the Seven Acres area. In October, we called to let them know we would have to shorten our stay to 30 days due to unexpected work issues. Was assured that wouldn't be a problem, and although we couldn't request a specific site, we would still be in the Seven Acres Area with no trees. Upon arrival, we were given a site that was not in Seven Acres, but a site that had a tree that was obstructing our satellite signal, the sites were so close we had our neighbors sewer hose on our site right next to the small picnic table. We went back to office to request a site without trees and preferably in the Seven Acres Area that we were told we'd have. We were then told, they could not move us, that the computer assigns sites and there's no way to change it. Asked to speak to the manager. She was called and put on speaker phone. She was NOT helpful at all. Wouldn't listen to what we were trying to tell her, she talked over us and told us there wasn't any trees on that site, she wouldn't listen and told us to call satellite company, that there was nothing they could do as they were 100% full. She said we could leave if we weren't happy, but none of our $1000 rent would be refunded. The park was only 50-60% full at this time. Even after being there for 30 days, there were still 15 spots empty in the Seven Acres section. Pool was far from being finished, (which we were told in October it'd be done by Dec 1st). Laundry room was dirty with very old machines. We went 30 days without satellite, had to look at neighbors sewer hose, and they DO NOT care to accommodate and work with customers. Very disappointed with our site, the office staff and manager, they are rude and don't know how to listen to customers. Do not recommend and we will NEVER stay here again. - DDND

This is not an RV Park. You are basically parking in someones side yard. No bathrooms, no showers. Just water, electric and sewer. I had a hard time contacting this park for any information, they never answered their phone. They would not honor the Passport America discount (-$20.00) stating the website has not been updated in over a year. Had a hard time even locating the office. I had to park on the road and walk around looking for it. (It's located in a house) This place has potential but has been neglected. We planned on spending 13 nights here but moved on after 2. - Wills on Wheels

We stayed at Calusa Cove after losing our previous reservation at another campground, because of returning home for a family emergency. Calusa Cove was the only campground I could find available on short notice for the month of February, 2015. The campground is very small and very rustic. The campground owner was very courteous and extremely helpful. We were greeted warmly and given a nice large site. There are no amenities, but we were thankful to find a spot for the very busy month of Feb. We had a very nice shaded, large yard area for our two small dogs. Calusa Cove wouldn't be our first choice of a Campground, but it served our purposes of seeing Ft. Myers and the surrounding areas. The other people in the campground were very friendly and helpful. Calusa Cove is trying to improve their campground all the time. - campers5350

Very nice small campground with some easy trails and an interesting park along a river. You can rent kayaks. Convenient location. Very natural setting and good spacing. Might be challenging for really large rigs. Bathrooms and showers were fairly clean and could use some updating. Site was not level but doable with levelers. - Bonniem10

Very friendly staff. Lots of vegetation to provide privacy at site. Park is gated at night to provide security. Easy to leave after hours with an access code for re-entry. There is a river at the campground with nice trails. They have a farmers market every Sunday. Some old historic building on site as part of the park. - pilots48

Another very nice Florida State Park. My site was reasonably private with what looks like a fairly new electrical post (30 amp for me), water spigot, picnic table, and a fire ring. I drive a class B camper van without slides. A larger RV would find this a pretty tight space. This was a level site with a dirt surface. Because of recent rains, it was slightly muddy but I think it drains pretty quickly. A layer of crushed rock would have helped. The highlight of this park is the Historic Site donated to the state by the Koreshans. I took a very interesting self-guided tour which I highly recommend. Due to an impending tropical storm, I cut my visit short, but I would return again under better weather conditions. - MGJim

We stayed in a motor home for 2 months. The site was large with full hookups. We did not have a concrete pad or picnic table. Some sites have these. The park is mostly small permanent trailer homes. There are some pull through sites. Shower and toilet rooms are old but they were cleaned and they were not closed for cleaning; they were available 24hrs a day. There is a remarkably cheap laundry available. There is a very busy highway that never quits for the overnight and overflow sites. The people are very friendly. There seemed to be an unspoken rule that you had to wave or say "HI" to everyone you met. There is a nice library, great pool, mini golf,lots of activities, and it is within walking distance of a grocery, pharmacy and several restaurants. We would not hesitate to return. - suerover

Great location. Friendly people on site and residents are nice. Must know the cleaning schedule for bathrooms before visiting them. Otherwise it's a hike to other restrooms. Close to beach and trolley service. - tentbychoice

What a bad place . The wifi did not work. Real bad mngt. Its a Wilder campground, and they don't spend a penny here. Will never return here again. Stinky pond on property. We've camped our whole life and never experienced anything like this place. Theres alot of run down permanents here from the 60's that need to be removed. - john woods

When I see a park that has only 1 review I become suspect. So we decided to check it out. It was also only one of two RV parks in the area that had any room over Presidents Day week end in the area. That being said we were not disappointed. The basics: roads narrow and take some care getting around but coming in they show you where your site is and help get you into it. The site is grass on sand, we need to add 3" of lift to get the bus level and once your in it's got a lot of room. The showers were dated but spotless and had great hot water and pretty good pressure. The bathrooms were clean. They have wifi at the office and pool area but we didn't use it. Verizon phone and mifi worked great. We had a 50 amp site. There was only one 50 amp plug in and not a 30 or 20 amp outlets on our pedestal. The pool may not have been heated but as hot as it's been it felt great. I know they have 30 amp too, but I don't know if they have lower amperage plugs available on those sites. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The CG has a lot of seasonal owners but things are not cluttered and has a very homey touch. The people are friendly and the they had a full social calendar with something going on every day of the week. We were there and got to go the Valentine Day's dance. This is an older CG but it well kept up and I'd have to get pretty nit picking to say something bad about it. You can hear road noise from Hwy 41 but it's more background than in your face. The price seems a bit high for what you get but it's location, location, etc. If we're in the area we'd stay here again in a heart beat. Note the rate reflects a week stay. - pumper9x9

We were greeted in the business office by a barking blind dog and five rescue cats. Although, I applaud this effort, I'm not sure all would be comfortable with it. After a ten minute wait a friendly. helpful human led us to our site, and helped us back in (we are beginners). A neighbor then assisted us with getting situated. We then went to find the community bathroom in which we occasionally take showers and were appalled. I went in feeling dirty and left feeling worse. It was filthy, looks as though it is never cleaned, or maintained. If I had wanted to swim, I would have had to deal with a handful of kids. I found this odd in a park that advertises for adults over 55 (in which I seek). One of two dryers was not working and we were just a bit intimidated by a few confederate flags displayed by some of the residents. We won't be back, or recommend it to others, yet we enjoyed some things in the area: especially the dog beach not too far away. We left earlier then we had intended on our next leg to our journey. Happy Trails! - Recession Road RV

98% sites clean. About half permanents. Mostly nice people. Paved streets. Cable TV. They pickup your trash. Reasonable rates. Water good. Close to historic Bonita Springs. I would stay here again. - RonH999

Stayed only one night. The campground is mostly permanents/snowbirds, but the campsites are large enough for those traveling thru. The residents were very friendly. The campground is very neat and laid out well. There is a large, heated pool although we did not have an opportunity to use it. It is in a good location, close to shopping centers, etc. and easily accessible. Only drawback is that the residents park their vehicles across from the campsites and we had to ask them to move the cars for us to be able to back into our site. Would recommend this campground and would stay there again. - Cgd 0317-_

Mostly permanent sites, but very clean and well cared for.
Nice transient sites with concrete pads and grass, quiet
and peaceful. Nice pool and laundry facilities. Paved
roads throughout. Clearly the best option for visiting the area.
We would certainly stay again. - macandphyl

We have been coming here for December and January for many years. This is our favorite place to camp. As all beach front campgrounds, the spaces are very tight. This is of no concern to us as most of the other campers are friends we have made over the years. For us, beach front parking is as good as it gets. The Town of Fort Myers Beach has been "improving" Estero Blvd. for the last 3 years and it was still a mess this year. But even the terrible traffic and the construction work, we still love this place. Staff were, as always, very helpful and friendly. Beach side roads and sites are sand. Good electric, water and sewer. Fair wifi and tv. We hope to continue coming here for years to come. We camped in a motorhome. - delta 26

What a dump. Pack them in like sardines and take their money. 10 foot roads, super tight. Had to get people to move their carts and trucks just to squeeze through. 5 tries to back into a very tight space. I know how to back a motor home and have camera and big mirrors, but this is ridiculous. Lots of permanent sites that are run down. Will NEVER stay here again. - RBarrong

We are fulltime now, but used to live in Naples which is about 30 miles south. We have been camping here several times per year for 20+ years. This review will be a composite of that experience since little has changed in all that time. The rate above was for second row. This place is the perfect example of supply and demand. Demand far exceeds supply so there is no incentive to do any maintenance or improvements. Beachside is basically a sandy lot with scrub grass, a few trees, and utility hookups. Utilities work well. Wifi hasn't worked ever for us in many years. We use our hotspot. Sites are very tight. Large rigs only fit on a few places beachside. No overflow parking especially at peak times. Many times they let me park in the storage yard which is only a block away on the park side. Park there with your lot number tag and that gives you a space at your site for visitors. Holiday weekends are insane. Staff is friendly and they are pros at spotting you and backing in trailers with their tractor. You have to REALLY want the beach to make this a good value at these prices. - RMD3819
