“Great Location, Ok RV Park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Perwinkle is the only RV park on Sanibel Island so location is the big key. As the other reviewer noted - TAKE BIKES (You can also rent them on the island) - You can bike anywhere on Sanibel and with the flat dedicated bike paths its easy even if you're not in perfect shape. And it's much easier to get around with bikes than sitting in traffic. Back to the Park. Perwinkle is a nice park with roomy sites and many trees. It has on site baths with showers, laundry and a really nice bird sanctuary. It's a short 1/2 mile bike ride or walk to the beach and is in easy walking distance to several restaurants and shopping. We were there in off season and the park was not busy, might be a little different atmosphere when busy and full. A large part of the park has been converted into residential homes. They seem a little extreme with the rules - but it was a clean quiet park. Biggest negative to us were the restrooms/showers. We were in a pop-up so the facilities were important to us. The restroom/showers were not cooled and there was not enough ventilation in the buildings -so when we were there in June they got very hot during the day. Very hot. We adjusted by taking our showers early in the morning or late at night. Going during the day would be brutal. They did clean them every day and seemed well maintained. Keep in mind, this is Florida, there will be bugs, so take spray.

I was kinda of leary at first being as there were no reviews of this place but was pleasantly surprised. My first recommendation is TAKE BIKES!!! We were so happy to have them. The beach access is about .5 a mile and could be walked but with a lot of items would be a hassle. The park is HUGE and a good location. The bike paths are great around the whole island. The park sites range in size depending on the size of your rig. The bathrooms are decent with good water pressure. The park is clean and most people were nice. THis is a campground / trailer park with a lot of full time residents. The bird sanctuary is kinda neat to look at and free. We ate at the lazy flamingo and Island cow. Both were ok. The beach is natural and pretty. Lots of sea life, we could not believe the amount of sand dollars! Overall we had a wonderful time and would return!
