In the tourist town of Sarasota, Florida is the Sun-N-Fun R.V. Park and Resort. It welcomes people of all ages and has activities for everyone. On-site amenities include a huge indoor lap pool, a steam room, and a 26-person hot tub. Stay in shape at the fully staffed fitness center, which is packed with a variety of workout equipment. Enjoy a game of tennis or a rough-and-tumble round of basketball. Volleyball is available on the beach, too. There is plenty to do off-site, as well, from a day of shopping at St. Armand’s Circle, to nature walks in Selby Gardens or Myakka River State Park.

Red Coconut RV Park in Fort Myers, Florida

Enjoy camping on the beach at Red Coconut R. V. Park in Fort Myers, Florida. The beach upon which the resort lies is known as one of the safest on the Gulf, having no undertow and a gentle slope into the depths. Fishing is good in the deeper water, where you can catch amberjack, grouper, and red snapper. Watercraft such as jet skis and wave runners are available to rent on-site. Have a game of volleyball on the white sand beaches or venture off-site to play golf on one of the many championship courses nearby.

Gulf Coast Camping Resort in Bonita Springs, Florida

In lovely Bonita Springs, Florida is the Gulf Coast Camping Resort. Enjoy days filled with activities or relax by the pool. Dogs and cats are welcome, with no weight restriction, so even if your pup is a Great Dane, he’s welcome. There’s a small lake on-site where you can do some catch-and-release fishing. Spend the afternoon playing shuffleboard or horseshoes, or watch the wildlife by the lake. There is shopping and golfing nearby, and for nature-lovers, the Everglades National Park isn’t far away.

Seminole Campground and R.V. Park – North Fort Myers, Florida

Seminole Campground and R.V. Park is far enough away from the urban areas of Fort Myers to be a quiet getaway for couples and families. It is still close enough that you can enjoy the beaches and the activities on the Gulf while remaining a step removed from the hustle and bustle. Enjoy swimming in the heated pool or just getting some sun on the deck. There is an on-site dog park so that your canine companion will have a place to run around. For the human guests, there is a nature walk. If you enjoy fishing, there are guided fishing excursions nearby, or you can go off on your own, fishing pole in hand. You can even go canoeing on the Caloosahatchee River.

Whether you’re a snow bird looking to escape winter’s grasp, or a young family seeking a vacation that the children will love, the Sunshine State has an R.V. park that you’ll enjoy.
