Park has a nice location if one wants to go to Fort Myers beach as that is just across the causeway. Traffic going to the beach is, however, very heavy and stop/go. Best to bike or walk. One can launch kayaks right from the campground which was great for us. In terms of space, this is the tightest RV park I have ever stayed in. Rigs are only a few feet apart and the road is very narrow with vehicles parked along the side which makes navigating and backing into sites very difficult. Also, a majority of people staying here are seasonal and have been coming for decades. Transients are a small proportion of the rigs here. We had some of the seasonal folks sitting outside after midnight talking loudly and I had to yell at them to quiet down and move along. A very busy place and crowded. Do not take site 29. It is right next to the evening/night gathering spot for the seasonal people who are sometimes loud. Will not stay again. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Travel Trailer.

There was confusion over our site #, so they upgraded us to a better spot for no additional charge. Sites are close together, but park was not crowded, thus not an issue. Great views of water and canal. Very close to the beaches - we rode our bikes over the causeway. Great customer service. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.

We were pleasantly surprised by San Carlos. We have a son in a wheelchair and the paved sites overlooking the bay were perfect for him. We had our own dock to launch our paddle boards, so pretty there. We were entertained by the NautiParrot Bar directly across the water. Such good music every afternoon. Bonus, the dolphins and Manatees swam right up to our site on a regular basis. Our son could drop his fishing line in right from our site. Perfect, we're heading back again 2019.

Our RV club camped here for a week end rally. The park is very well maintained and clean. The restrooms are older but immaculate with lots of hot water in the shower, and extra hooks to hang your clothes and a good exhaust fan. Our club used the community room kitchen and eating area. It was too warm the first night, but that was corrected promptly and we never had that problem again. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Beach is 2 miles to left out the gate. Free parking before 9:00 AM, so we enjoyed an early beach walk. Beach access signs are posted, numbered and indicate if there is parking. Downtown parking is metered at $3 an hour. Walmart and Publix are 2.5 miles to right out the gate. Site 4 probably had the most noise as it is across from the open gate. The rest of the park is walled.

We stayed eight nights, at Christmas, in a great spot along the water, facing the mangrove islands. Each day we watched fish jumping, herons and pelicans, and some days dolphins played near us. The sites are small, people are friendly, and pool was warm and clean. There is a dedicated group of regulars who come every year and know each other. We really enjoyed the small Park size and location--easy drive to Sanibel and Captiva, and shopping is nearby. But traffic on San Carlos Blvd is horrible heading to Ft Myers Beach, and is the main complaint for the location. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very tightly spaced but nice location to see Ft Myers beach and the surrounding attractions. Some sites are right on the water for launching boats or kayaks. The park appears to have many long term residents as many structures looked like they had been there for a while. Utilities worked as expected and site was level. The park smelled strongly of sewer gas much of the time, so much so that at times I went into the rv instead of sitting outside. Restrooms and showers were very old but clean. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.

As others have said, it's a pretty tight campground. I guess water front property comes at a premium and they try to get in as many as possible. Having said that, it's not as tight as some other places we've stayed. We were in a travel trailer so we just unhooked at the office and they moved us to our site using their tractor. Backing in problem solved. Short walk to the beach and downtown area. That's a good thing because the traffic is terrible going to the beach plus parking at the beach is expensive and hard to find. The walk is not hard and you can see a lot from the top of the bridge. Lots of eats and drinks close by. I would absolutely stay here again if I was in the area. February is peak season in this part of Florida and we had to change sites mid stay but again, the tractor did all the work. Everybody at the campground was friendly and helpful. Space for dogs is kind of limited but we managed. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Try to get a waterfront site. They have docks available for a nominal additional charge. Plan on walking to the beach during peak and on weekends. Driving is nearly impossible. WalMart just a mile or so away.

This is a good place to stay to visit Ft. Myers and Sanibel. The park is very clean, and we had a site on the water. However, I have never before stayed anywhere that was this tight. Interior roads are very narrow with campers cars parked on both sides right up to and sometime sticking out into the road. I had a back in site just long enough for a 38' motorhome with space in front for my toad. I don't think I would have been able to back into the space except that the two spaces across from mine were empty. It still took a lot of jockeying back and forth to get into the site. That be said, it's a great park, and I would stay there again. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed on their new premium sites, which were paved and drove up to a sea wall ten feet in front of our coach. Manatees and dolphins swam within ten feet of the sea wall in the morning. A boat launch exists and some sites offer boat slips. The waterway feeds into the Gulf of Mexico. Site was manicured very nicely a with foxtail palms and other beautiful foliage. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.

very nice, clean park. level spot. we had a dock, which worked out great for us. wifi was probably the best we have ever had at any site. laundry was nice because it had credit card machines on the washer / dryer, so you didn't need change. could see dolphins from our site.

Not a bad little campground although big rigs have to use the higher priced sites but these have nice water views. Friendly and helpful staff. Sites are varied gravel or grass, all are back-in. Large, concrete patios with picnic tables but no open fires permitted. Asphalt roads. FHU/30/50 but all utilities are at rear of sites, saltwater pool, hot spa, laundry, dumpsters and recycle bins. No propane sales, minimal CG store. Gas/diesel gets more expensive the closer you get to Ft. Myers. We saw dolphins out our back window. They also have a sizable marina but we only saw 1, small fishing boat. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Mini-golf at the Smuggler's Cove, a really nice albeit pricey facility. Dinner at the Gulfshore Grill (Ft. Myers Beach) was very good but also, a tad on the pricey side.

Nice park with most sites on water. Spaces are tight and close, but fine if using as a base for exploring area. Had a problem with 50 amp power, told office and problem was resolved in 5minutes.

Wonderful week there! Staff was very accommodating when we wanted to change sites-we saw one empty we liked better. View of bay was gorgeous. We kayaked right off our site. Beautiful and clean boat docks. Park was very nice, spaces are small but able to accommodate big rigs. Pool nice. Very close to bridge to Ft Myers Beach- we walked over to avoid the traffic. Definitely would go back. We were advised that this was a subpar park by someone who was there 3 years ago. We learned that the kids took it over and upgraded a lot and continue to make improvements. We loved it. Very pet friendly. We camped at San Carlos RV Park & Island Resort in a Motorhome.
