Fort Myers RV Camping

Fort Myers RV Camping
Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach are located in South Florida where the Caloosahatchee River flows into the Gulf of Mexico. The beach has had a strong tourist industry for decades. The city of Fort Myers is located further back along the river and has more of an inland feel than Fort Myers Beach. There are scores of campgrounds, and many cater to retirees and "snowbirds" escaping Northern climates.

The Red Coconut RV Park

The Red Coconut RV Park is one of the few RV parks that is literally on the beach. Some of the sites are on the sand of the beach, and most are back a bit further and even across the street.

The Red Coconut has 250 sites with full hookups--water, sewer and electric--with 50-amp connections available. There are 170 sites for tent camping, and those have electricity and water available. Of the RV sites, 13 are pull-through sites. Some sites are for extended stays.

Cable TV and Wi-Fi are available. Tent camping is allowed on the beach. Pets are allowed on a leash. Restrooms, showers and laundry are available. A convenience store has ice, RV and camping supplies.

There is a public-use area, and shuffleboard, volleyball, canoeing and kayaking are also available. Planned activities are held on a schedule at the park.

The park has ponds and small lakes, and you might see ducks or geese in the pond next to your campsite. The beach, golf, shopping and supplies are all within easy walking distance.
