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

Well maintain RV Resort $1298.00 month plus electricity. This is expensive, but for southern Florida, in prime season, it is not an outrageous price. The roads are paved and easy to maneuver around. The sites are level pavers with a patio. The sites are well spaced out with grass between each one. Premium sites face 2 different lakes with beautiful views. All sites are pull-in, so the lakes can be seen through the windshield. Several sites are pull thru, and many back ins away from the lakes. The sites are 80 feet long, plenty of space for tow vehicles and trailers. All the utilities worked well, are convenient, and easy to hook up. There is a heated swimming pool, pickle ball courts, horse shoes, shuffle board, pet area, and a club house. The club house has a game room, DVDs, books, kitchen, and a stage. The grounds are a work in progress, nicely landscaped but immature - the park is only 2 years old. The laundry has four washers and four dryers at $2.00 to wash and $1.75 to dry. The laundry, bath house, showers and pools are very clean and well kept. Breakfast is offered a couple days a week, pot lucks, socials, and special events are on going. There are several park model cabins on site. The other guests are very welcoming and friendly. It is too new for many cliques to be formed. The staff is courteous and helpful. They are still build. - Pacatrader

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

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

This was a very nice, clean, well kept park. The rate reflects weekly price. All utilities functioned properly. This is a retirement community with park homes and rv's. It is very quiet with nice area by the river. If you are looking for a lot of activities or things for the kids this may not be your place. If you are looking for a good nights sleep this is for you. I can not speak to the bath house we did not use. - goheelsone

Big rig friendly sites and most roads were easy to maneuver. Sites in the section we parked in were grass but level and there were no obstructions. Lots of activities. - Mustcamp

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

RiverBend is 17 miles east of I-75 in Fort Myers in the little town of LaBelle. Roads throughout the resort are paved and wide and each site is roomy with a concrete or paver pad. There is a staging area in the front of the resort for removing the car or trailer. Pads are level and utilities are mid site of the pad. Power and water pressure good. They are in the process of installing high speed Wi-Fi at each site which will be up and fully operational late summer. Satellite reception good and OTA good. Verizon signal two to three bars in our location. We have traveled across most of the country in our motorhome and can honestly say this is the nicest location at which we have stayed. One reason is that the sites are nicely spaced with lots of private space, and the other is the residents who reside there. During peak season there are endless activities and really friendly folks all around. They have a pool and club house, a lovely clubhouse by the river, and an activity center for crafts as well as their welcome center A really spectacular spot. Will definitely return. - LvR

This campground feels like an upscale neighborhood. Manicured landscaping and beautiful sites with many beautiful lake views. very private. If I lived up north and wanted to spend a month or two in Florida I would buy a lot there. So many activities and friendly people. The realtor and is such a nice guy. - golfnut788

This is absolutely the best Motorcoach Resort we have stayed at!! We were so impressed by the grounds and the meticulous details (scrubing the curbs and wiping down the street lights) Once you arrive you don't want to leave! We were renters but were welcomed from the time we arrived. It is really a community of owners and renters that all pitch in to make this place very special. Their are activities that begin at 8:00 and some days go until.... Sunset on the Caloosahatchee River is breathtaking! The facilities are top notch! They have a big beautiful club house that has an activity room, library, pool room and bar. The swimming pool is very large and also has a nice clubhouse with kitchen, workout area, laundry, showers. Around the pool are two hot tubs as well as shuffleboard, putting green, picnic facility. The owners have also added a race track with miniature cars, their own miniature railroad, and on Wednesdays you can watch miniature sailboat races. Pickleball Courts are top notch as well. The resort is just 20 minutes from I75 and very easy to access. The small town of LaBelle is 10 minutes and a new Walmart is 5 minutes away. Although it seems you are out in the country everything was still very convenient. We did venture into Ft. Myers which is about 40 minutes for dinner a couple of times but after experiencing the traffic we actually couldn't wait to get back to the quiet of the resort. We stayed here for 6 weeks and loved every minute of it! Can't wait to go back next winter!!!! - Susan Davis

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

Interagency 50% discount rate for one night. Site was a large, level, paved back-in site with on-site water and 50 amp service. A dump station is available in the park. We had good satellite reception and good Verizon cell and data reception. Located on the Caloosahatchee River, this is a very relaxing and quiet location. Encountered many love bugs on today's trip; fortunately the park allowed us to wash them off. This is our fourth visit and we would stay here again. Ignore GPS directions to Goodno Road (not a road); turn on Dalton Lane. - Dave51

Big beautiful sites with level concrete pads and covered picnic table. We had a site on the river and at the very end so there was lots of privacy. However, there was construction going on just behind us, lots of earth-moving equipment starting work pretty early in the morning. I tried using the laundry but I wouldn't recommend as the water smelled really bad and I had to rewash everything elsewhere as I could not get the smell out. - CnCOntheGo

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

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

This is the tale of two expectations. If you are looking for a cheap place to spend the winter in Florida and play golf, you will like this (not a) resort.
If you don’t fit this profile, you will be sorely disappointed. The transient sites are sand pits (as previously described by recent reviews), the office doesn’t open until 10am and is closed on Sundays. If you have a dog, there is NOWHERE to dispose of waste other than one small can in the one “dog run” which isn’t necessarily convenient to your walk. The “enclosed dog park” is a small dirt pile hidden in the utility area. Even the office personnel didn’t recommend using it.
Lastly, their website embellishes the reality that you are a short term visitor, so set your expectations appropriately. This place is literally in the middle of nowhere, so come prepared. There is a Walmart about 25 minutes away. - McGarrert50
Mar 2019 - $44.00
We stayed here four nights as part of a rally group. The "8.2" rating posted for this place is way off and way too high. The sites were dirt piles that were not raked level and did not even have picnic tables. Sewer was right next to the power box. Not a great location. The pool was green and the office staff was not helpful or even available. There weren't any signs to guide us to our particular site and we had to enlist the help of a winter snowbird resident that also had difficulty finding our site. Dumpsters close by were non- existent and the advertised restaurant was not open for dinner. This place is not close to town or anywhere else. Nothing to do close by. At least a 20-25 minute drive to even get groceries. We would not stay here again. - Bruce and Linda R

A couple of warnings if you are a big rig: 1) The county road to the park has low hanging tree branches that are hard to avoid (and apparently the county will not trim); and 2), they created several sites by using sand fill they tried to pack and through some grass seed on. Our site didn't look to be an issue, but sure enough, we sunk (we are 25 tons). Had to put jacks down, grab a shovel, get some boards, and pull out carefully. The dude helping said I was the 5th person to recently bury their rig, with one guy needing a tow truck to be extracted. Not all sites are this way (we moved to a different one that was fine). So just ensure you let them know you do not want a soft sand site if you are heavy. One other thing, don't have high expectations for the nine hole golf course. It is an OK layout, but fairways are a little rough. Priced right (cheap) for what it is. Not much to do in the area, so doubt we will return. - Selectively Unemployed
