Rv Campgrounds In Fort Myers
With its wellkept beaches, rich history, pristine neighboring islands, and playful local nightlife, Fort Myers has long been one of the favorite destinations for RV campers. A number of RV parks compete to offer the latest amenities, and any or all of them can look great in an online advertisement, especially while you're watching the snow fall relentlessly past your windowsill and contemplating digging the car out yet again. Choosing the right park for you can make the difference between relaxing in paradise and suffering through annoyances and logistical nightmares.
Types of ParksRV parks in Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach vary widely. Some are restricted to campers over fiftyfive, kidfree zones where mature campers can find peace and quiet. Others welcome younger families or grandchildren, providing playgrounds and activities. Some are occupied mainly by snowbirds who stay for the entire season and these may have a fair amount of their territory devoted to these more or less permanent guests; others focus their attention on transients and may even have some tent sites. These factors and more will influence a park's atmosphere, making it a great fit for some campers and a drag for others. Some are linked directly to park websites; others, you'll need to call or write for more information. Another helpful list, complete with a rating system, can be found at Woodall's. These online guides can help narrow down your search, helping you find the parks that offer amenities such as a heated pool, fitness center, or WiFi connection. Would you rather be nearer to the beach or the downtown area? Do you prefer your RV camping posh or rustic? These are the kinds of questions an online guide can help whittle the well over three dozen local options down to the ones most likely to accommodate your dream getaway.
Ask The Right QuestionsOf course, a pretty website full of promises doth not an RVer's paradise make. You'll want to talk to an actual person at the campground, not just a travel agent or call center worker who may never have been to the actual park you're considering. How many of the sites actually offer fiftyamp service? Is the advertised WiFi functional inside your rig, or is it just a hotspot at the clubhouse? Is the heated pool actually open? How much of the park is occupied by longterm seasonal campers, and how much of it by transients? Do additional fees apply to some of the promised amenities? Are staff available 24/7? These are the kinds of questions that can help prevent a disappointing experience, and your conversationideally, with your actual hosttobewill give you a feel for the attitude of management, which is an allimportant factor in the quality of the RV park experience.
The State Park OptionIf you prefer your camping rustic, have an RV under 40 feet long, and don't mind a 20minute drive into Fort Myers, you might want to consider Koreshan State Historic Site. Forty eight of its sixty sites accommodate RVers; four of these are paved and ADAaccessible. Sites have vegetation buffers for privacy not a feature you are likely to find at more urban parks and, at $26 a night for the 2010 season, are a bargain. Reservations, strongly recommended, are accepted up to 11 month in advance.
Three Of The BestThe following is not meant to be an exhaustive listing you'll find that at the guides already mentioned but rather a trio of parks that stand out for one reason or another, giving you a feel for some of what's available:

Minutes from the beach, they offer many wooded sites and two lakes along with giant heated pool, whirlpool spa, 50amp hookups, and 75foot paved pullthrough sites.

Riverbend Motorcoach Resort, 17 miles from Fort Myers on the Caloosahatchee River, is among the poshest of the posh. Two clubhouses, exercize facilities, a restaurant onsite, and a nature center are just a few of the listed amenities. Sites are landscaped, paved 50' by 100' lots, each with a "coachhouse." There are 25 acres of preserved conservation areas and lakes to explore, and no age restrictions. 2010 rates started at $77 per night.
