We live here locally and still visit the park when they have an opening. Pool, Tiki Bar, scheduled events and activities, breakfasts and lunches... do I need to say any more. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice park with owned sites that can be rented out. We stayed 3 weeks on a site in the back on Barracuda Bend. It is close to a busy road outside the fence that can be very noisy (racing motorcycles and loud trucks). If we return we will pick an interior road site or something much closer to the front. Management has a very strange mail delivery process. If you have a package to pick up at the office, you need to wait for them to put a slip of paper in your rented box ($30 deposit for the key that is refunded when the key is returned), then walk to the office to request them to issue you your package. It is annoying. I will mention that there was a very odd smell of sewage that permeated the cg frequently. Initially I was looking at people's sewer hoses to see if they were leaking but they all appeared firmly fixed. Not sure if it was a water treatment facility or a paper plant. People told us both but we were never able to confirm which it may be. Beautiful grounds with pickle ball, tennis, shuffle boards, nice pool, and a cafe with food that look reasonably tasty. The grounds are full of foliage. With all that said, I am not sure I will return. Noise, mail, and smell leaves me questioning. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This was a very nice owners motor coach resort for the Holidays. While spaces are snug there is foliage between so you feel like you have privacy. Receiving mail is cumbersome unless you receive small envelopes because you have to check your assigned box outside the laundry room for a yellow slip. If you have one you must then walk up to the office to wait around until someone comes out for your yellow slip then goes back to hunt out which envelope or package is yours. The office staff is not very friendly but the residents are quite nice. There are a lot of activities for snowbirds to take advantage of. Most activities were starting in Jan and, sadly, we were off to continue our adventure. Would definitely stay again. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Motorhome.

One of the nicest parks in the States! Don't follow your Garmin RV GPS :) Very professional run park, admitting staff very pleasant, we were guided to our site, nice touch. The park is very clean, very very wide sites, it was a breeze to get my 41 foot backed in with lots of room. Wifi is very good, we stayed on site 822. Would highly recommend this park to anyone for short or longer stays. We were also only 10 minutes from the beach. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is a top notch park. The campsites are owned privately and the office rents them out for the owners. This is a very well laid out campground in a handy location to shopping and the beach. I could found no faults with this place. Large heated pool, great laundry facilities, clean showers and restrooms. The sites are level, large and all paved will nice landscaping. I did notice some of the sites had the utilities on the other side for motor homes to pull straight in. This is a great place to stay. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

There is a security gate! If you leave the park, take the security code with you. We did not know this and came back at midnight after attending the Grand Master's visitation banquet. We did not have our code and no one answered the after hours number. Other than that, this is a premier Florida park. Palm trees, paved roads, concrete sites with paver patios - sites are huge, separated by palm trees! Water pressure, electric (with surge protector), DirecTv satellite, cable, Sprint cell service all worked fine. The sewer dump was a bit far, we had to use our extra long sewer hose. There are sites with either driver side or passenger side hook ups. All sites are back-in, no pull thru at all. Some of the sites are owner owned with an owner association - did not affect us. The pool has a Tiki bar, it was open on the weekends. The welcome pack has two wifi codes capable of hooking two devices to the Wifi, no streaming. Since this is off season, the office was closed on the weekend. Dog friendly, but some sites are a pretty good walk to dog walking grass. I did see one "no dogs on the grass" sign. There is a 10 year rule. I would come back but only in the off season. Our 5th wheel is 40' and we tow with a Freightliner hauler. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We are sorry that the gates worked to well. While we attempt to walk thru the WiFi and gate policies at check-in and explain the codes we may have missed this with you at check-in.

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and appreciate your kind words about the Resort. We hope to have you back with us again soon.

This is as good as it gets. We had an accident, and stopped in on a morning in early February, without a reservation, and with a real sob story in hand which the Manager and his Staff were graciously able to take our word for. By doing so, they bailed us out of several nights of dry camping at a time when there was no other available RV site in the entire area during the absolute top of the high season. The Manager and Staff could not have been more helpful, going way, way out of their way to find sites for us in this beautiful, completely full park. We have never been treated better, and the sites that were assigned to us were spectacular ones, and we have never seen an RV park this nice. Very spacious, very long, sites well designed for living that we have never seen the equal of anywhere. This park, where the sites are usually owner occupied, has a Home Owner's Association which has a Manager and Staff running it, in a very upscale way. We do not know how our stay here could have been improved upon, and appreciate all that the Staff did for us, and the excellent sites that we stayed in. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We wanted to get away to sunny Florida for a few weeks but most decent campgrounds were full. We ended up booking here and had to pay the full month plus a day when we were only going to be staying for 19 days. The campground is nicely laid out, spots are adequate in size, some better than others, the utilities all worked fine, and the pool and spa were a nice addition. The "locals" in the campground were very friendly and honestly they were having a heck of a good time. Every day they were doing some kind of activity and then ending up at the onsite bar in the afternoon. We are not retired yet so it was interesting to witness. Overall the park was fine but we won't go back. We felt trapped in the park, trapped in the area, and trip provided nothing of the camping life that we enjoy. I will say the one negative of this park and many of this type are that no one wants you to walk on the grass. If you have dogs, which we have 2, it's basically a struggle to walk with any enjoyment when at every turn there is a "don't walk on the grass" sign. Give it a rest with that crap. We all pick up after our dogs and they are a part of most campers life so lighten up with that. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is run like a park should be run, making you feel welcome from the office to the person taking you to your site to the neighbors coming and introducing themselves. The park is immaculate, wifi is good and you feel like you are home. The pool is nice and happy hour is wonderful. Definitely would return every chance I get.

Big rig friendly with all concrete sites. Cable, laundry room and showers were good. Wi-Fi was okay. Swimming pool was heated and water aerobics every morning was great. Most activities did not start until January. No dog park but had open field to walk door on lease. Great place to ride motorcycles. You could ride bicycles to Walmart, Ft Myers Beach, two restaurants, and drug store. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a owner owned campsite which when the owners aren't around anyone can rent the sites for a very pleasant stay. Clean and well maintained sites, but beware that dogs keep off the grass signs are everywhere. I walked ours out to the entrance roadway so as to not bother anyone in the park. Lots of high end motorhomes with a few fifth wheels and travel trailers scattered about when we were there in April. April happened to be quite hot and humid which I guess is the norm for Ft. Myers area, but it was easy to get into the park as most of the snowbirds had left. Very close to Ft. Myers Beach and Sanibel Island. Lots of things to do in the area, and restaurants a plenty for those who like to eat out. We arrived unfortunately during a spring break week and found the beaches quite crowded. We waited until the week was over before venturing back to the beaches again. Swimming pool and club house was very nice, with a bar area at the pool. We camped here in a fifth wheel and the sites were very large, we will be back again. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our 2nd time staying at this park. This time we booked a full week which gave us a better rate. One of the nicest parks we have stayed at with perfect location to access all the area has to offer. Pads are very large with nice landscaping and patio areas. Many of the sites are privately owned, so some more extravagant than others. Satellite friendly and wifi worked great. Very nice pool area with tiki bar. Everyone very friendly and fun to walk to the park and check out all that owners have done to enhance their sites. Our spot was right on the lake and minimal road noise from the highway. We would highly recommend and definitely stay here again. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Motorhome.
