Spent 2 weeks at SC as our first trip in our newly acquired travel trailer. Lucky to get a reservation, as most guests have been returning for 15-20 years, and stay 3-5 months. Park is surrounded by water, easily accessible for small or mid-size boats, with slips available. Site was adequate in size, with nice large concrete patio. Online map... More

Thank you for your nice review! January through March are the busiest months for us here in south Florida and it's a good idea to call months ahead of time. I hope you'll be coming back to see us again in the future! -Spencer More

We got lucky. I called a week or so ago after we found out that our RV was going to be finished service at the Camping World of Ft. Myers. When I called the very courteous and helpful office staff, Bonnie, told us that only 2 spots left, supreme spots on the water. Well, we were thrilled, and our spot... More

We went here for Christmas and our first official trip with our new motorhome and I don't think we could have had a better experience. Our site was right on the canal where we saw beautiful sunrises and dolphins every morning. We also had a blue heron visit on the dock just to the right of our MH everyday. The... More

This is a very quiet park. Has a lot to offer, I checked out other nearby parks and was glad I decided to stay here. Close to everything, but yet far enough away from all the party people. I am past that stage of life and appreciate just having a layed back atmosphere. Thank you for a pleasant experience

We have been going here for 30+ years, starting out with tent camping,moving up to a camper and finally to the rental units. I am very disappointed ALL the waterfront rental units have been removed. When one no longer can handle a camper it USED TO BE great to still feel like you were camping. VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!

Getting rid of our rentals was a very difficult decision for us to make! There are many disappointed people who have been great customers for many years, but the rentals were very old and in need of a lot of repairs. It just became a business decision for us as the rentals were not making a profit and caused much... More

I have been there 3x's now and I really like it there! Very clean and friendly! If you have a camper and want to stay for a season or come and go for the season and be able to know your camper is safe while you are not there this is the place to be!

This RV park has a great location and a wonderful water front sites. Its a little tight, but most privately owned parks are. The staff is friendly (especially Spencer,in the office) and the pool is wonderful. We went for a week, which included the Memorial Day weekend. I would not do that again, as the place was sold out and... More

My family stayed at San Carlos R.V. Park for 4 days. My husband had stayed there previously and we returned on our family vacation. Our stay was very relaxing. There is a trolley pick up across the road to the beach or short scenic walk. A great pool and hot tub. We found all the guests we met very friendly.... More
