“Great beachfront experience”

Reviewed Oct 23, 2016

Overall Rating

This was a rare luxury for us. At the price of nearly a week's site fees for one night we wouldn't stay regularly, but we knew that would be the cost for the experience. The staff was more than helpful and did all they could to get our 40 foot bus nestled into place amid torrential rain. The inbound road is narrow and traffic unforgiving of the needs of a rig the size of ours but that's just a word to the wise and has no bearing on the capable and willing staff of Red Coconut. Highly recommended if you're in the area.

“When in Rome...”

Reviewed Jan 19, 2016

Overall Rating

When we were blown off our westward course by tornadoes in the midwest, we found ourselves waiting out the weather reservation-less in Florida at the start of snowbird season.

We scrambled to see what was out there and make the best of our detour, with the following parameters:

  • close-ish enough to visit family in Sarasota
  • beach-ish enough for me to enjoy my time off between Christmas and New Year's

Fort DeSoto park in St. Petersburg was our first choice (I used to hang out there in my college days - shout out Eckerd College!) but it was all booked up. After snooping around state parks and various RV resorts, we stumbled upon a cancellation at the Red Coconut in Fort Myers Beach.

Fort Myers Beach is your typical touristy central Gulf Coast beach town. Traffic was congested on and off of the island.

When we pulled up to the Red Coconut, staff were available right away to help us get situated. We were shocked at how tight the sites were. The protocol for travel trailers is to let the park staff pull and back you in to your site with their tractors, which we gladly accepted. I have no idea how some of the big rigs made it in.

Once situated...

The good: While staying at the Red Coconut, we rode bikes to Lover's Key State park (12 mile RT), had grouper bites and rum drinks at Junkanoo, the beachside restaurant across the street, and waited in line at Heavenly Biscuits for...heavenly biscuits. While we didn't stop in, the drive-by of the Edison and Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers proper looked impressive. Then of course, there is the beach, with powdery sand and plenty of space even in the busy season. The photo of the campground shows the beachfront sites, which are booked well in advance - word on the street is that they generally go to repeat visitors. We stayed across the street in a "standard" site.

The bad: the traffic on the one road that spanned Ft. Myers Beach was constant (bring or rent a bike - locals ride on the beach!), the sites barely had enough space for us to pull out our awning, and the costs of this place qualifies as a major splurge.

Fellow RVers at the park were friendly, quiet, and respectful.

If you love the beach and warm weather, aren't claustrophobic, and are OK with the expensive price tag, this is a decent option for Florida at this time of year. If you want solitude and space and hate sand in your toes, this is definitely not a good choice.

Protip: there is a nature preserve out behind the RV park where I (illegally?) would walk the dog and get some solitude. If you aren't afraid of some real deal Florida swamp funk, it is a neat contrast to the beach and creepily cool to explore.
