The pool area is very nice along with the dog park and tennis court. The sites need some $$ and TLC. The water connections are not on every site and some of the cable boxes need repairing. Almost all of the concrete slabs are broken and cracked, but each site is level and with a concrete slab. A few more shade trees would make this park ideal along with a little TLC. Excellent location, close to many attractions in the area.

The location is very far from Ft. Myers which we didn't realize, our error. Our initial encounter at the front desk was negative, but another gal later was very helpful. There is no heat in the bath houses and no solid doors to close. It was a chilly 43 this morning. The 'well stocked store' was not. I must say that we did receive a folder upon registration full of information about the KOA and nearby activities. It's an old KOA, but adequate.

As I've noted in other reviews, RV parks on Florida's SW coast are hard to come by and many overpriced for what you get.
KOA Pine Island/Fort Myers is no exception. This park is mature with an aging infrastructure of broken concrete pads and a noticeable lack of shade trees under the sometimes brutal Florida sun.
As others have said, there is little to do in the area beyond fishing, kayaking and lounging. The park (and most of Pine Island) is a mangrove swamp and there is no beach anywhere except for nearby Sanibel Island.
If there is no breeze the tiny "no-seeums" will attack making life itchingly unpleasant. (Tip: Most Florida fisherman keep a bottle or two of "Skin So Soft" at hand. It seems to repel mosquitoes and other biting insects. Florida is known for the best-smelling fisherman anywhere.)
As always, check carefully before you put your hands in the water or electrical bays of your camper. Snakes, frogs and geckos love to climb aboard from the nearby mangrove swamp.
Electrical service and water pressure were very good at my site (#3).
The sites are all back-in and not very long. Separation between adjoining sites is good. Expect broken concrete and old picnic tables at your site.
The nearest Winn-Dixie is about five miles north and is located in a small mall that you will pass on the way to the park. The store has a good wine selection and there is a liquor store in the same mall.
This KOA park caters mostly to permanent sites with several "Lucy" trailers that have been built on and expanded. Sadly, these trailers from the 1950's will never roll again. There were fewer Canadians here and many from Michigan during my visit in January of 2013.
There are several trail heads in the area that lead in to state-run nature preserves.
The park has a nice swimming pool, a large laundry and a small RV store.
The staff is generally friendly, but with a "Take it or leave it" attitude that comes from a position that there are no other campgrounds nearby. I had business reasons to be in nearby Fort Myers and even with three-months notice this KOA had the only available sites in 60-mile radius. They insisted on having the entire three-night stay paid up front. Fort Myers is 45 miles away by car.
If you have a dog there is no dedicated walking area. You are cautioned not to venture beyond the fences on either side of the property.
When approaching KOA Pine Island from the north please note that the entry drive is over a hundred feet north of the large KOA sign. I saw a coach overshoot the entrance and a turn-around is quite a bit further south.
On the way out to Pine Island you will pass through the community of Matlatcha ("Mat-latch-SHAY"). It would be well worth a car trip back for lunch and a walking tour. There will be NO place to park an RV, 5th wheel or trailer.
I traveled in a motor home.

Room Tip: As always be sure and tell them what you need when making a reservation.

We have returned to this KOA time after time. I just read the other reviews and must comment. The hot tub has been replaced and is working. The "no see ums" (tiny bugs) are bad; but there is an effective insecticide sold at the camp store. The park is a little old; and more trees would be nice; but it is what it is. I guess it is the location and the attraction of local bands, the funky art scene, some very nice restaurants, a really great staff, and friendly fellow-campers that keep us coming back!

We stayed the weekend of October 26, 2012 in the Kamping Kabins. They were a great little cabins, although ours was next to the wastewater facility (that wasn't in the brochure). The grounds are nicely maintained and there is a clubhouse with a pool table and workout room. We didn't utilize much more because we were fishing. It is a nice little island. In one of the other reviews, some stated that there is not a beach on this island, so keep that in mind. I personally won't RV/tent camp here because it is like a parking lot. I would come again and stay in the cabins. The staff is very friendly.
