We stayed here in 2008 and were very satisfied with the accommodations... After recently getting back Into the RV world with the purchase of a new motorhome, we decided to come here for the snowbird season and we are so happy with our experience that we are looking to purchase a lot. As others have said, EVERY lot is full hookup with 50A and MOST lots are big rig friendly. There are two gates, the first gate allows you entry to the welcome center and laundry facility and then the second gate allows entry to the park. I HIGHLY recommend that you search the park website and rent directly from a lot owner. There is a drop down menu at the top, where you can select to see a listing of rental lots. This listing includes the name, email and phone numbers of owners as well as the dates their lot is available. We rented a lot on the lake in a cul-de-sac and I must tell you that the very first night we arrived, we were greeted by several of our neighbors who are indeed owners themselves.... Earlier reviews mentioned that this park was snooty and that the owners were stand offish and we have been here several weeks and can attest that we have been treated just like we belong. There is an activity coordinator who arranges events in the Town Center. Just this week they had health fair with local vendors and this past Wednesday they have two food trucks. They have Monday morning coffees that serve as a meet and greet.... Lake front sites are pull ins for motor homes, which gives you an awesome lake view. Definitely visit the owner's website to rent units.... Much easier and more convenient. All in all, this is one of the best places we've ever stayed..... - vbrebel

This is about as good as it gets for RV resorts. Most, if not all, sites are owned by individuals. If you can rent from an owner, your cost would be about $40-50 a night. Through the resort, it is pricy (weekly rate $500). Sites are paved, back-in (with a few pull ins facing the lakes), nicely landscaped, and very wide and long. Electricity, water, and sewer were all in good condition. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Many owners and other residents volunteer to be gate greeters, opening the gates for new arrivals. We used our Verizon MiFi for internet. Cable TV available through the cable company. A nice book exchange is located in the laundry room. - DiplomatTraveler

We chose Cypress Woods as it was very convenient to Northtrail RV center and we were shopping. That said, if we ever wanted to stay in the area again for any reason, Cypress Woods would be high on the list.
The park is very well kept, very well landscaped and the facilities are top notch. As it happens we knew people that own a lot there and we were included in a "burger bash" that took place while we were there. We found the people, almost all owners, very friendly, as was the staff.
As at least one other has already mentioned, it was difficult to reach anyone at the office to make and then confirm our reservation. At the time (November 2015) it seems they had just one lady with apparently too many responsibilities handling reservations. Once we did get ahold of her she was very nice and very accomodating.
There's a variety of site types, but most are heavily landscaped and very attractive. Some are on water, most are not. - JMonroe

My wife and I stayed at this park for 3 months last winter. It was our first time in Florida for the winter and we had no intentions of buying at this or any other park. During our time in Florida we visited multiple parks from Bradenton to Naples and couldn't find one that we loved as much as Cypress Trails. The park is well located near I-75 and close to downtown Ft. Myers for nightlife and dining, river boating, shopping and 45 minutes to beaches. The park is exceptionally clean, beautifully landscaped and has fantastic amenities for the active visitor. We play pickle ball, work out in the gym, enjoy tennis, bocci ball, corn hole, organized bike rides, love the salt water pool and lap lanes but most of all we love the people there. We never felt a segregation between owners and renters. Every owner that we met was so welcoming and fun and the evenings are filled with planned parties at the 12,000 square foot clubhouse as well as mini parties at homeowners sites throughout the park. We loved it there so much that at the end of our visit, we decided to purchase a lot and make this our winter home. Sites are at least 35'x 90' with 20' x 70' concrete pads and back onto lakes or woods. Many install cabanas, large tiki huts and patios. The comments about the 10 noisy pigs that affected 2% of the sites is no longer the case. That minimal issue has been corrected and is no longer a concern. I agree that there is some initial pressure from the sales staff for you to buy a lot, but let's face it, they're in the business of selling lots in this park. In the beginning we told then that we weren't interested and they left us alone. The staff are exceptionally nice and helpful and the campers that decide to work during their stay are courteous and a real asset to the park. All in all, there is a reason that the show "Best Of The Best" voted this park the best of it's kind in the nation for 2016. We honestly love it and know that you will too. - Jason Dillon

We stayed in a lakefront site for 3 weeks in January and really did enjoy our visit. The sites are large and very well maintained. They are in the process of adding more sites that will almost double the number of sites in the resort. They have many activities that you can participate in if you wish. There is also plenty of place for walking and/or biking in the resort. The check-in was very easy and we were escorted to our site by a very nice gentleman. The office was very nice and helpful also. We will definitely return when in the area. - John & Bobbie

The park was nice, no WIFI except at the clubhouse, The entrance was very hard to maneuver two sets of gates and if you miss the second gate you have to turn around and start over, kind of crazy. Park was clean and close to shopping and I-75. - PAYOFF

This is an old park in a rundown neighborhood. You can hear gunshots at night. The manager is very abusive and likes to flash his handgun, threatening, and downright mean. He likes to brag about how much money he has. He keeps folks deposits when he shouldn't.. There is a big problem with anything left in your yard getting stolen since the park refuses to install a gate. Many of the mobile homes are empty and abandoned. The laundry is run down, the pool has been deemed unsafe by the city. No WiFi or cable. No services except a small area for your dog to be loose. . The RV sites are small and the roads are narrow. I only stayed here because other parks were full. I worked nights and slept during the day and there was loud loud construction of a school next door with diesel smoke from trucks and equipment and very noisy, Constant noise from sirens and traffic. I stayed 5 months. - Ms Mary

Older dated park, sites clean, many full time older residents. Very friendly owners, great bark park with showers for the dogs. Quiet, yet handy to main street shopping. - pkunk

Over all a nice place - Yes is is/was a mobile home park that is using blank sites for RVs and perimeter sites for RVs as well. The roads were narrow ans I was lucky to be at an intersection so I could maneuver my 35' fiver in to the site w/ ease. Manager & wife are great people and very friendly. The maintain man was there in an instant and trimmed a tree in no time, to keep it off the side & top of the camper. Hard to estimate the ratio of RVs to Mobile homes but there were quite a few RVs that looked to be setting down roots and soon to become a part of the place as well as the mobile homes (though mobile is hardly the term I'd use to describe them. Traffic noise to be expected being right off a 4+ lane main drag through town (an EMS - Fire station was in the nearby area). Very easy to reach the interstate, as well as cycle into the downtown and see the Edison/Ford estates for a good afternoon. Might use this again - will keep in mind - maybe to try for a work camper position one year. Though no WI-FI, my Verizon air card worked well. Cable TV was a service you have to arrange - not worth it for just a week. - D Ward

We stayed here last year and again this year. What a charming place! The staff is very welcoming, as is nearly everyone in the park. This is mainly a co-op with mobile homes and park models, but another area for RV's. Some sites are on the water. Some pull throughs as well as back-ins. Everything is well maintained and sites are large enough that you don't feel crowded. No issues with water, electric or sewer. They provide a bin for recycling, if you are going to be there a week or longer. Good paved interior roads and large cement patio. No picnic tables. No fires permitted. Cable not included. Considering what the winter rates are in this area, this is a very good value. Hoping to be able to stay longer next time we visit the area! - Vicki K

The staff was very friendly and accommodating, we asked for a pull through site at the last minute and they found one without making a fuss. It was wonderful! It's a large over 55 park, mostly park models, with a section for RVs. Paved roads, and gravel parking area, with a concrete patio that ran almost the whole length of the rig. Good WiFi. No real shade, but it was fine with us, as we used the satellite for TV. There is no cable. Good electric/sewer/water hookups. We would stay here again without hesitation. - Vicki K

We stayed here on the Passport America weekly rate of $120. This is south Florida at the end of the snowbird season. The rate is only good for a one week stay. We stayed here to be near North Trail RV in order to do an RV inspection for a client. Things got pushed back so we had to stay here two weeks. The park manager honored the PA rate for the second week! Awesome customer service!! This RV park is located at the back of the park in its own area. Dogs are allowed in the park area but not anywhere else. The rest of the place is park models. The sites are nice, rocks and shells with a big concrete patio. The rest is well-maintained grass. The park is nice. We will return if we have need to be in this area. - Howard Jaros

My husband and I have been camping for over 20 years and we have never had an experience like the one we had at Ft. Myers RV Resort last week. First, after making a reservation 2 months ago and advising what type of camper we had and that we would be pulling a trailer, when we arrived we were told that the trailer would have to go in storage and we would have to pay for that. We were not told that when we made the reservation. They did end up letting us park it in the parking lot. Then we were told that we could not cook outside on our grill (no wood or charcoal, only propane). We do not have a propane grill. Next, we had a 4 x 4 fence with our puppy in it and we were told we could not have that! The lady (I don't know if she was the owner or manager) was very rude and nasty! I have never been spoken to like that before and I was in shock. We had a reservation for 2 nights. The next morning my husband went to the office to request a refund for the 2nd night because of the way we were treated. He was told absolutely no refunds! We left anyway, never to return again! All of the staff was very nice except for the lady owner or manager. She is one of the rudest people we have ever met!! There was no fire ring, picnic table or shade. It was hot and miserable. You were not allowed to pull in or back in depending on the sun. You had to park they way they told you to. No choices! Miserable! - 25innocent

We stayed in a motor home for 2 months. The site was large with full hookups. We did not have a concrete pad or picnic table. Some sites have these. The park is mostly small permanent trailer homes. There are some pull through sites. Shower and toilet rooms are old but they were cleaned and they were not closed for cleaning; they were available 24hrs a day. There is a remarkably cheap laundry available. There is a very busy highway that never quits for the overnight and overflow sites. The people are very friendly. There seemed to be an unspoken rule that you had to wave or say "HI" to everyone you met. There is a nice library, great pool, mini golf,lots of activities, and it is within walking distance of a grocery, pharmacy and several restaurants. We would not hesitate to return. - suerover

Great location. Friendly people on site and residents are nice. Must know the cleaning schedule for bathrooms before visiting them. Otherwise it's a hike to other restrooms. Close to beach and trolley service. - tentbychoice

What a bad place . The wifi did not work. Real bad mngt. Its a Wilder campground, and they don't spend a penny here. Will never return here again. Stinky pond on property. We've camped our whole life and never experienced anything like this place. Theres alot of run down permanents here from the 60's that need to be removed. - john woods

The day before we arrived we called them. We were told the site we had would not be able to accommodate our fifth wheel toy hauler with the deck extended. We were told they could only accommodate a 45 foot rig. With our deck extended, we totaled 50 feet. When we made our reservation, we were assured they could accommodate this size. When we questioned them about this , their response was we fired that person. They did end up giving us a spot that allowed us to extend the deck. We were lucky that our "back yard" was a construction site and therefore did not have a trailer on it-which in turn gave us the extra footage we needed to extend the deck. The second issue I had with this campground is terrible customer service. We were told when we booked this place that a beautiful new pool was going in and would be open December 1st. When we arrived, we were told the pool was not open yet, but would be in a few days. We were told this every week during our stay. The pool never opened and they were never up front about it. They offered us a 75% refund if we wanted to leave. Really? It's spring break, we're new to the area and quite frankly we were overwhelmed from traveling. They knew this and counted on us choosing to stay. In hindsight I will choose to leave if I'm ever put in that position again. No compensation for this important amenity was offered. The owner acts like she is doing you the favor by allowing you to stay there. She kicks people out if they disagree with anything she does. I don't understand how these rv park owners get away with this blatant deception. I'm guessing it's some kind of innkeeper rights. I think this park needs to be a full time place only. The full timers are very nice and I'm guessing they are getting some kind of kick back from the owner or they're terrified of her. I will say the location was nice. Tucked back in a wooded area and off the main drag with nice shade. I did like the location of this park. I did not use any facilities there, however I was advised by others (living in the park), not to do laundry there. So,we didn't.
A lot of spaces were under construction due to the hurricane, so I don't want to criticize about the condition of some of the sites.
In conclusion, my main problem was the pool. I have recently looked at the Shady Acres website and found they took the pool off their list of amenities. It's a start I guess. - Jacasek4

The guests who come there are a really great fun bunch. The manager/owner of this park is the pits. She is nasty. She treats people like they are beneath her station in life. Don't question anything the woman says or she will go off like a rocket. Don't question anything she does in this park; she will throw you out. There were 6 campers evicted during our stay because they pissed off the owner. She makes it quite plain it is her way or the highway and don't question anything she says or does. They advertise a pool and cafe and neither is open and hasn't been open all season. Very poorly maintained grounds. High weeds. Hadn't been mowed or trimmed in some time. Stay away from this park. Very very bad. - Granny go

We stayed one night on our return trip from the Keys. We were happy at the 50% off rate for being a Passport America customer. Had a concrete pull through that was large enough for our Class A and towed. Nice family staff, check in was fast and we definitely would stay here again! - Monaco Man

We were in a pull through site normally used by transient campers since we were only there for one week. The sites were concrete, and level. Our Passport America discount saved us quite a bit for that week. We have two dogs and they required a DNA test for them for the poop patrol. It cost $80 for the 2 dogs, but can be used anytime you are there or at another campground that uses the same service. The pool was heated and very nice. Good area to walk the dog around the campgrounds. Remember to pick up the dog poo. - steveNdonna

Wifi is fast. Bathrooms are clean but the one near my site, on the south side, had an uninviting shower area. My neighbor recommended I use the bathroom on the north side. Staff was courteous and efficient. There's a swimming pool. The grounds are well kept. My site was sand and shell and not level, with a concrete pad for a picnic table. Be aware this place packs in the rigs, and the roads are not wide. I feel like I'm in high density, multi-family zoning. I thought the quoted price was high, but a 7-night discount brought the cost to a reasonable $47/night. I didn't check out any other locations while here, but my neighbor did, and he believed this was the best choice. Also, is this the price it takes to have responsive internet service? If so, then I shouldn't complain too much. I did have a difficult time finding a place to stay in this area (granted, I waited until several weeks before to reserve), so maybe the price reflected that. I would return. - John_K

We stayed here from Nov. To Feb. Enjoyed the great friendly environment and lots of activities. Great warm pools! Boat club lets you access rides on other campers' boats to eat at waterfront restaurants in the area. As well, there is a captain who will take you out deep sea fishing for a nominal fee. Local restaurant is very popular with everyone (you could walk there). We hope to come back next year. - George2004

We were just passing through. Staff took us to the site. Was a good concrete pad, but not totally level. Water connection leaked a little, so I had to over tighten and remove my filter. Grounds are very nice, mostly snow birds. Very attractive campground and would easily stay there again, although a little pricey, then again, that's Florida. - BWolfAR

This is not an RV Park. You are basically parking in someones side yard. No bathrooms, no showers. Just water, electric and sewer. I had a hard time contacting this park for any information, they never answered their phone. They would not honor the Passport America discount (-$20.00) stating the website has not been updated in over a year. Had a hard time even locating the office. I had to park on the road and walk around looking for it. (It's located in a house) This place has potential but has been neglected. We planned on spending 13 nights here but moved on after 2. - Wills on Wheels

We stayed at Calusa Cove after losing our previous reservation at another campground, because of returning home for a family emergency. Calusa Cove was the only campground I could find available on short notice for the month of February, 2015. The campground is very small and very rustic. The campground owner was very courteous and extremely helpful. We were greeted warmly and given a nice large site. There are no amenities, but we were thankful to find a spot for the very busy month of Feb. We had a very nice shaded, large yard area for our two small dogs. Calusa Cove wouldn't be our first choice of a Campground, but it served our purposes of seeing Ft. Myers and the surrounding areas. The other people in the campground were very friendly and helpful. Calusa Cove is trying to improve their campground all the time. - campers5350
