The park was pleasant. It was nice to ride around the park. We got to see the diverse birds (parrots, swans, ducks, etc). And it also had monkeys with in a cage. The ducks and swans were seen swimming, resting and feeding around the canals the park has. It was right in the middle of Periwinkle Way within biking distance many delicious restaurants and clothing/souvenier stores. The beach was within biking distance too!! However, there is no parking for vehicles except the county beach parking which cost $4.00 an HOUR!!! When we went the whole stink from Lake Okeechobee was going on and although it was on the east coast, the water was not attractive. We chose not to go in it for safety reasons. That left us yearning for somewhere to take a dip since the park does not have a pool. That was really the down side of the stay. Other than that, I have to say I would probably stop here on my way back home next summer. I felt safe and the ladies were really NICE!!!! We camped at Periwinkle Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Once must visit the Island Cow restaurant. (LOVED THE GRITS AND MUFFINS.) And the Ice Cream Shop at the west end of the Island (can't recall the name) a must visit. The Light House restaurant was also very good for breakfast. Gas is little more expensive in the Island so fill up before going over the bridge. You must visit the Mall which is to the right of the highway before the bridge. Nice clothing and good pricing!!!

This is our second time here. Stayed 5 days. Very quiet. Half mile to the beach. We couldn't get satellite for the trees but it was hot so the shade was welcomed. Bring your bikes. Lots of traffic. You can ride easier than driving.

The staff is very friendly. When you check in remember to bring cash or check. They don't accept credit cards. The park is mainly a mobile home park with many quaint little campers and trailers that looked to have been there for years. But, don't let that dissuade you from staying there. They're all very well kept with flowers and landscaping. The road is packed sand and crushed shell. The turns are a little tight but we made it to our site with our toads still attached. We'll be back. We camped at Periwinkle Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed a week and had a great time, could bike to the beach, approx 5 min ride. We bought our unit with a full bathroom so we can use our own facilities. Did check out the washroom and it was clean but not overly large, but then again, that's why we book full hookup sites and haven't used a campground washroom in years. WiFi has been discontinued and no cable, but good satellite signal. Pets are allowed, but no Dogs. We're planning to return again. We camped at Periwinkle Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Too pricey for what you get. Limited wifi, (very limited) dirty bathrooms, rotting bath stalls with no locks on doors. They haven't spent a dime on those bathrooms in years! The beach is a 20 minute walk and their zoo attracts people during the day and rats at night. yuck! The staff was friendly but In 7 day stay, I never saw a cleaning person. I do not recommend this campground. Oh, I forgot to mention, our site's electrical box did not work! We camped at Periwinkle Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Good location on the Island and roomy sites. Bathrooms in need of complete renovation, and I mean complete!! No cable connection or dogs allowed. All in all, not bad, but bathrooms are a real letdown. We camped at Periwinkle Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Sites and roads are crushed shells. When it rains (and it rains a lot in Florida) it is a mess. Good luck keeping the inside of your RV clean. Lots of bugs including the "no seeums" so spray yourself every time you are outside. Not close to any beach. WiFi does not work. There are very good parks on the Fort Myers side of the bridge which is close to Fort Myers beaches. Suggest you stay in Fort Myers and pay the toll to go over to Sanibel. Traffic is horrible. There are concrete pads but instead of digging out the area underneath they put them above ground level and the steps on my RV would not go out. Had to have my entrance in the shells and track all the dirt in. We camped at Periwinkle Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Since 2004 we camped in this park and we are all so good we decide to buy a mobile home for choosing our site. Toilets and showers are old but clean, spacious and FREE! Hot water at pleasure. The staff is warm and hospitable. The beach has a half miles by bike, no need to pay for parking. A campsite in the natural environment, lots of greenery and wildlife. For RV sites, it is probably the only one in Florida allow the use of a additional tent, trailer etc. You must book in advance, they are very appreciate of all who pass by. It's a fun and safe camping for children. The speed limit is strictly observed. The mini zoo gives them a diversion limitless. We camped at Periwinkle Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is very nice and quiet. Our site was clean, concrete pad, and plenty large enough for us. We were traveling with another RV and there was a picnic table between us with ample space between. The roads are hard packed crushed shell and very smooth. The beach is a short 1/2 mile bike ride and there were lots of restaurants within a 5 minute bike ride. We only stayed 2 nights but we will be back. We camped at Periwinkle Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here 4 nights during our visit to Sanibel Island. A nice place, level gravel pads, good separation. Very quiet. Loved the parrots, lemurs, and monkeys there! Staff were helpful. Wi-Fi worked well most of the time. I downgraded it a bit for the bath house. We use the bath houses where we stay and it is important that they are clean and functional. The bath house was old, and not cleaned very often. It was not air conditioned and was not ventilated very well. Also, no place to hang things and change. All in all, we enjoyed our stay, but it was not a 10. We camped at Periwinkle Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice friendly staff. Roads are a little dusty. Very quiet. Staff told us they had a nice duck pond. To our surprise it was much, much more then a duck pond. Lemurs and squirrel monkey's? REALLY, just great. Clean and quiet. Short bike ride to beach. Would camp here again. We camped at Periwinkle Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

I spent 2 weeks here starting 6pm Christmas Eve. While setting up, Santa showed up in the bucket of a front loader visiting all the loops ended by hot apple cider in the center common area. How cool was that! I have friends that spend every winter here and was glad to finally join them for 2 weeks. Got a glimpse of life with the regulars; they were a nice group of folks called the 49ers. It's nice that the RVs are by RVs, not just filling spots that don't have park models in them. We had bikes and were glad because the beach is a longish walk. We did walk there New Years Eve, and several folks had bonfires on the beach and could see lots of fireworks over on mainland. The wireless was not very good at all. I ended up riding my bike with my laptop to the library (about 2 miles); they had excellent free network there. Don't miss the Sunday Farmers Market by the library! The campground was a quiet place but we were not by the birds, that might be noisier. The spots were sufficient size, did not feel like I was sandwiched between my neighbors. Nice new cement pads. The showers/restrooms were dated but very clean. The campground staff was always pleasant and helpful. Awesome chicken wings place right across the road; if you like hot, try Dead Parrot Wings! Little private grocery and liquor store right outside the gate was convenient. Took many long bike rides while here. Saw several alligators along certain of the trails (no real danger, was cool to see them). For the hearty, take the 32 mile ride to other end of the island but, expect the wind in your face on the way back. My reservation was absolutely correct upon my arrival. I absolutely loved the fact that Fido is not allowed in this park. I am weary of little Fido in the spots around me, I don't want to be Fido's friend and I don't want to listen to Fido "talking". I feel bad for Fido's owner, maybe just have a separate loop for Fido's RV. I can't wait to get back here again. Maybe stay even longer next time?

WE LOVE THIS CAMPGROUND. This was our second visit and it was even better than the first. It has a great location, great staff and great features. The big-rig sites are large and well maintained. The menagerie really makes this a special place for our kids. Where else can you enjoy dozens of tropical birds, water fowl and lemurs a few yards from your camper at $35 a night? Sanibel/Captiva are great, as well. Their participation in "Tents for Troops" only added to the attraction of this campground. We will continue to come here whenever possible.

This is a nice RV park in a great location (also the only one on the island). If it was closer to the Gulf, it would be even better. It is a 1/2 mile walk which can be long if you are lugging beach gear, but a quick bike ride. The campground has a lot of trees and tropical vegetation. Some sites are partially shaded, others in full sun. The area we were in was grassy and some hard packed shell-gravel. There may be pads in the other areas. There are a lot of permanent sites - mostly seasonal residents. Not very full in summer season so we weren't crowded by other campers. If it was full, some sites are fairly closed to each other. June - Nov 2013 off season rate is $35/night - $50 in season. Full hook ups. No dogs allowed. There is a tent area. Sites are very large and private, but no one was camping in that area while we were there. They have 2 duck ponds with swans and rare ducks. Also tropical birds & lemurs in cages. Lots of benches so you can sit an watch the birds. A nice place to relax. Restrooms (3 toilets, 3 showers) in ladies were clean, but people do track sand in. Bathhouse has ceiling fan, but as others have said, it does get hot. There is a laundry area, mail center with regular mailbox, fish cleaning area, etc. Great launching point for bicycling along Periwinkle. There are bike paths, water fountains, shady rest areas. So bring or rent bikes. We had dinner at the Lazy Flamingo which is in walking distance. The mesquite grilled grouper was excellent. There is a Dairy Queen next door, too. We camped at Periwinkle Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Location says it all. RV sites are separate from the permanents, and they do have a few pull throughs. All the roads & RV sites are crushed shell, so plan on tracking a lot into your RV. There is some grass around the sites. Very little road noise even though the pull throughs are fairly close to the road. Electric was very steady. Water pressure did fluctuate at times but adequate. Wi-Fi was working very well until a couple of other RV's showed up with quite a few kids, and then the Wi-Fi pretty much died. Agree with the others that getting to the beach is quite a walk especially when the heat index is above 100. To go to other beaches in the area can be quite a drive plus $2.00 an hour to park. When coming onto Sanibel Island, it will cost $3.00 per axle. And if you leave the island and come back you will have to pay again. Over all, we had a good experience here and would come back. We camped at Periwinkle Park & Campground in a Motorhome.
