Red Coconut RV Park (Fort Myers Beach, FL) - Campground Reviews - TripAdvisor

Pretty accurate reviews. If you are willing to pay the price for a small site to be on the beach it's a great place.

Hello and ! We just retired in March and loving it. We will be going to Fla in January and have no idea yet where we will be staying. Hope you have wonderful travels, and if your in NC give us a holler. We never quite know where we will be month to month, but if we are around would love to meet you and share a campfire.

Wife and I rode through while staying in Ft. Meyers and decided that we would need to hire a helecopter to put our rig on the beach sites if we could get one.

That was a few years back so they could have expanded by now.

I stayed there once in a TT. I could not get a site on the beach so I stayed close to the road and had to walk to the beach. I liked the beach community around the cg but was not impressed by the place. When you pay that much you tend to compare it to Fort Wilderness and there is just no reason to pay that price when you can stay at DW for the same or less. JMO

We stayed there in our 25' Class C last summer. Limited number of spaces directly on the beach, but if you get one the view is great. 2nd or 3rd row back, you're looking over and around the Rv infront of you to see. Lots are extremely small and I would be surprised if they would allow the 40' DP we have now. Several good restaurants within walking distance. Large beach, shallow so you walk out a ways and even sit on the 'sandbar' at low tide. We had friends stop by and we spent hours after dark sitting on the beach enjoying the breeze with a few cocktails and didn't have to worry about driving home. It was fun for the experience but the cost will probably keep us from returning.

Beach = A
Campground = C-

Our experience at Red Coconut was not good, although the location is wonderful. Sites are so tight, there's no room to breath.

We have stayed at the Red/C since 1988, when it was 1/3 of todays price but if you want to be on the beach a few daysor more what the heck, its a great time and great beach, had my trailer of 24 ft in it up to a until recent my 40 ft A/Tradition, no problem getting in just getting my wallet out. Gulf Water is good only two miles out if you have a toad. We live here fulltime now.impressed us all those years.

Didn't stay there, but did get caught in a weekend traffic jam at the entrance to the park. Really bad, and no where for an RV to park for check-in. Really congested. Decided then I was glad I didn't stay there. dick

We drove by there last week in our car (pics on my blog). It was nearly empty and was a gorgeous place to stay.

Rv Travels With Karen and Al: Lovers Key State Park

I guess if it was filled up it might not look as appealing but it certainly was nice when we saw it. I think I'd try to stay there in December vs January or February.

We could have easily put our 41 footer in there but of course it was nearly empty.

We think the Red Coconut is fine it is not a resort stay but I have stayed there for few nights up to a month for the last 25 years, all good but expensive. Explore Lovers Key State Park south on the island and north in south Sarasota County is Turtle Island Campground, going there next week also a State Park now as of 2006. Better hurry theyare filling up for season all over. Those 3 are your best for S/W beach camp or the Keys, which we are spending Christmas on the beach there.

Geezz, do you think you can afford all the fuel to go from Cape cardiac to Ft. Myers beach? Wait a minute, I forgot it will take you all day just to get to the beach idling in the snowbird traffic. LOL

I also like lovers key and Turtle Island. Wish there were a good CG on Treasure island. Welcome to the board from your neighbor on Pine island.
