We are full-time campers. I booked this campground six months out for three months January through March. We got there at three in the afternoon, but the office was closed and no one there to greet us. We found an open site and spent the night. The next morning the manager told us we had to move to an unkept site in the back or at the old dump station. This was not acceptable to us so I asked for my $250 refund back and they refused. I would think twice about booking at this place. - John Shilling

This older campground seems to be slowly deteriorating. Sites can be close or very spaced. Landscaping is neglected. The best part of this campground are the wonderful residents. There was no activity in the Chiki-Hut and few other activities. The Shuffleboard court is in sad shape with cracks and weeds growing through the court. The hot tub was a nice 102 degrees, but had lots of leaves in it. The pool was never above 72 degrees and usually empty. The was a problem with the water, and we had to find out from the neighbor not to drink it. We should have been informed by management The roads in the park are deteriorating and in need of repairs. Our site had a shared access with two other sites. The monthly rate was $730. We will not return. - Summer Minnesotan

This is an older campground that boasts mature pine and palm trees and "grass" between sites. Quite a variation in site dimensions but mostly comfortable for spacing. Grass is not watered any more so is rather brown and sparse in the winter months. Nice paved streets and concrete parking slabs with side extension for table and chairs. Picnic tables provided. Perhaps 50% Permanent sites. Very friendly residents. Morning breakfast in Chiki-Hut by volunteers. Some activities. Shuffleboard, Horseshoe pits seldom used but in nice shape. Hot tub at 102, Pool at 80. Monthly rate about $650. Walking distance to Groceries. Closest spots a block from street making for rather quiet surroundings. - easydoesit

If I could give this Resort a higher score than 10, I would. This is their 1st full year....brand new.....& they are still building & adding on. All sites are brick pavers & all include patios & beautiful landscaping. Beautiful lake surrounded by a brick paver walkway. 2nd lake being added in the new section. All RVs except for the Park Model Village off to the side. This place is beautiful & has the nicest & most fun & welcoming people we've ever met. Dan & Lorraine, the owners are super accommodating & will do everything they can to make this place even better. We can't wait for next year. It will be a grand Homecoming. Coming next year will be an on-site Restaurant, General Store, an organic gardens. Already on-site is a Beauty Shop. - GrannyJ

Excellent New RV Resort - They are still finishing this resort. It is about 2/3 complete. The sites are all full hook-up and are very large and very nice. There is plenty of room for large RVs along with whatever other vehicle you have (Tow or Towed). All of the sites are paved with pavers and will have tables and grills for your use. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is already one bathhouse and supposedly another on the way. The laundry room has four sets of large capacity machines. The meeting/clubhouse is just about complete. Stay at one of the sites along the lake for wonderful views of sunrise/sunsets, depending on which way you face. - ben31rv

"Wow" is all we can say. This is a beautiful RV park. Not complete yet, but it's going to be an amazing first class park. Looking forward to next season returning to our paved site, gorgeous pool, organic produce mart, beauty salon and exciting activities right here on site. Brand new everything. Welcoming and spotless! Super friendly and family owned and operated. Feeling blessed to have our spot reserved. - HavingFunFromWisconsin

We didn't do the daily rate, stayed a month for $700.
Beautiful, clean, friendly park but waaaaay overpriced.
Mostly permanent mobiles and "florida homes" with about 15% RV's.
Right on the river (from Lake O all the way to the Gulf at Ft. Meyers), with its own launch ramp and docks.
Joined some friends during our winter in "the south", just to check it out.
The entire place revolves around their "activities".....ain't my thing.
Management is stiff, formal, and unyielding, but "inmates" are very nice.
If you have the money and get excited over shuffleboard, this is the place. - MajorOz

We "camped" at Whisper Creek from Mid December 2016 thru mid March 2017. We had site 451 in the "The Glenn", which is a grass site with a concrete patio. The park is well maintained by a great work-camper crew. The office staff is a work-camper/paid staff combination and are friendly and helpful. The shower houses are spotless and there is a full size laundromat on site. Whisper Creek has a very active resident committee, fully supported by management offering many activities and entertainment options. The residents who own their park models are friendly and welcome shorter stay residents. There is an inviting heated pool under a Lānaʻi (screened area). Many of the activities are very active and well attended. There are Shuffle Board and Pétanque (look it up) sessions and tournaments along with dances, karaoke, bingo, craft classes, Red Hat Women, bowling, lunches, dinners, etc. There is a end of season Festival Week that celebrates the residents with special activities, games, contests, and meals. In 2017 the week coincided with Mardi Gras with a Mardi Gras theme, which also included a Golf Cart Parade. The park also offers golf cart rentals. One note, the park was sold in 2016 and the new owners were in process of taking over the management of the park while we were there. - Indy Glenn

We came here based on reviews. Big mistake. The maintenance crew was excellent. The office manager was rude, arrogant, and probably a lot of other terms. The season was rainy, very rainy. CG can't be blamed for that, but we found that the office manager was so bad that we couldn't get any help with mud ruts and just plain mud. We talked with a great many of the residents who maybe were afraid to complain for fear of retribution from this manager. The entertainment was great, but most of it had already been sold during the previous seasons to to residents who had permanent units. The term "resort" means to me a "mobile home" park with non-permanent residents who lived there full time. We had problems with mail, water being shut off with no notice, and sign tied to a pole advising to boil water until further notice. Without any personal notice to residents, quite a few times the electric was off. WiFi was poor at the best. We were told most places charged for WiFi- not so in my experience. - capemayal

We stayed in The Glenns area of this park which comprises of large grass sites with full service. The campground host and staff were very friendly and accommodating. There are a number of long term residences here but they are all very well kept and the residents are friendly and speak highly of their experiences staying here. A very nice park and we will be stopping here again. - Irish2

On the lake and a great place to own and stay for the winter. We live in Oregon, so that does not work. Park has remote car racing track, small train track park, boating marina, and lots of activities. 100 to 120 wide spaces and covered with vegetation so it's hard to see your neighbors. One of two parks where I would own if I lived closer to Florida. Pulling in and out of space is tough as the roads are not wife enough for a 45 foot to turn around in and back out of. - vern bauch

This is a class A ONLY motorcoach RESORT, it has a 5 star rating with much to do in season, December to April. reservations are hard to get in season so book early. The landscaping of the park and the indivual lots are perfect, an oasis in the middle of the orange groves and cattle fields. LaBelle has everything you need and very friendly helpful people. it is located on the intercostal river and and has its own Marina. two club houses, restaurant, large heated 90+ degree pool and 2 hot tubs. Putting green, shuffle board, bocci ball, RC race track, Pickle Ball courts (8). remote control sailing club, Miniature RailRoad layout, Biking around the wide paved resort is a breeze or you can rent golf carts. Gym and pay laundry. The Lake lots are pull ins with a view of the water and fountains, very peaceful. - Bill-NancyK

One of the classiest class A motorhome parks in Florida. 315 sites with a variety for rent or for sale. The "over the top" character is the friendliness of the people and their volunteer participation to bring added camaraderie. This is a place you visit one time and buy immediately. Large lots, excellent landscaping. The pool is huge, immaculately clean and sanitized with bromide which is so much better than chlorine. Activities abound and your arm gets tired waving at all the folks. Another important feature is that all of the drinking water is filtered with Reverse Osmosis, so it is extremely tasty and pure. Give it a try! - DustyBob

We stopped here overnight, its about 20 min from Ft Myers Fl. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Looks like a nice snowbird campground without all the bells and whistles of the high dollar resorts in the area. There is no shade in the campground. Full hook ups but the water has a smell. Campground is on the grounds of a nice church retreat and borders the Caloosahatchee River. - Psi500

We swung by looking for a future campground. It was very promising with a well wooded entrance. We stopped at the office to get literature, the keeper talked to us, she was very nice, we got permission to go to the RV park and take a look. We drove through nice woods and came out to the RV park and there it was, a loop on the open plains, no trees, and the motor homes sardined in full sun with no trees or brush. I was so disappointed we just left. For those that don't mind, the inexpensive rate may be fine. - drsolo

Riverside Retreat has a campground/RV park open to all. Also hosting a camp for churches, organizations, schools, etc. the campground/RV park is separate from that camp area. Situated on the Caloosahatchee River, Riverside Retreat's motto is, "It's the Nature of the Place." It is a quiet park in a natural setting. You may spy gopher tortoises, bobcats, or armadillos on any of the hiking paths. Canoe or kayak the Caloosahatchee. The roads and sites are not paved, but it is a full hook-up campground with a friendly staff. We highly recommend this little gem of a campground. We visit every winter. - Dawn1955

This is a very neat, organized and well maintained COE campground. Interior roads are wide and paved. Each site is paved up to a level concrete pad for your camper. There is a large gravel area with a covered picnic table and fire ring. Ample room between sites and plenty of room for slide outs and awnings. There are some trees and bushes between some of the sites but most are not shaded. Our site had some shade on one side. Utilities well placed and no problems were encountered even though the park was full most of the time and everyone was using their A/C. Restrooms and showers were kept clean. Since this campground is in a remote area there are not many activities other than fishing, relaxing and watching boats pass thru the locks unless you drive about an hour or so. We would camp here again if we were in the area. - 21fbrs

This was our second stay at this very nice COE campground. The sites are all 30 or 50 amp with water. A dump station is available on site. Beautiful views of boats passing through the locks. Saw some gators & lots of birds. Last time we were here we saw the otters, but we didn't look for them this time. There's not much in the area to do, so this is an excellent place to spend a few days recharging and being mellow. We didn't go into the facilities. We had good cell coverage (AT&T, boosted) and very good OTA TV from Ft Myers. - Jeporter99

We stayed at site 28 on July 1, 2018 and site 24 on July 2, 2018. Staff was courteous, Professional and polite. My wife and I have stayed at many Corp of Engineers campgrounds before and this one is by far the Best. Quiet country atmosphere . Sites were well manicured and maintained. The concrete pad was great to park on as we did not have to use our levelers. Love parking near the river and as a bonus NO BUGS. We will definitely return as this is now our favorite campground and close to home. This was the best experience of our camping life! We stayed in a 30 ft Motorhome. - FCN

The park residents are friendly with several activities during the winter for residents to enjoy. A good rec hall and swimming pool is available. The remote location is quiet with no highway or other noise. The facilities look to be well maintained. A good set of camp rules keep things orderly. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is that maneuvering the turns on the streets was difficult and many sites are tight to back into. We were reserved for site 115 but it was just too tight to back into due to vehicles parked at streetside. - Steve77

Access from road is rough, construction caused huge issues with grade and turning. Not their fault. Access road to campground has no signage once you leave the highway. Branches scraped the top of our coach in three places. Not their fault, as a county road, we were told. Packet of papers provided on checkin referred to restaurant with dinner menu included. No dinner is served at this restaurant. Details were also provided on sorting trash for recycling, and map with dumpsters was noted. No dumpsters exist. Office staff said they were all removed due to "illegal dumping". There is some schedule for picking up trash at your site. Small dog park was nice with benches and a shade tree. No grass, but nice enough. Driving range was reasonably priced, and golf pro was congenial. All sites are level, back in with easy hookups. No picnic table, nothing. Grassy with small concrete pad set too far back to use. Park is 95% snowbirds that have zero interest in the annoying transients. - DebbieT in Alabama

Stayed 4 nites. Very nice campground. Most come here for golf. There is a boat ramp for access to river connecting lake Okeechobee or Tampa. Some park models, but not excessive. Restaurant on site but didn't go. - Long Island Mac

We are annual lessees and have seen numerous improvements over the last year. Some projects move a little slow but eventually get done. The new owner has recognized that annuals are his bread and butter and is treating them fairly. Announced in writing last fall there would be no lease increase for 2017/18. Lots of amenities in the park (see their website) and recent newsletter listed more improvements are in the works. Office and park maintenance staff are friendly and helpful. - PT Traveller

I rated this park a 5 because of the fact it's a primitive campground area. Take CR 832 from highway 29 near Felda. Then turn on the last road on the right called Wild Cow Grade. The road into the campground is gravel but not bad. The numbered sites on Panther Pond would be too small for anything over roughly 27 feet and are well shaded. However just a little farther in there is an open field area that would take a big rig and generators are allowed to be run there. I've seen deer, hogs, a bobcat, otters, gators and many bird species. The quiet and scenery are great and well off the busy typical park. Miles of roads and trails. I find it better than Everglades national park. - Goinmobile
