We are looking for any recommendations on rv resorts near Ft Myers Florida for February through April. Hoping for a reasonable price per month.

Reasonable? Ft, Myers "in season"? That's funny. Do you consider $100/day reasonable?

Look about 1000 miles west. The southern tip of Texas has many RV parks and the rates are reasonable. Before we took a mobile lot, we were paying less than $2500 for an annual contract on a site. The monthly rate was less than $400 plus the cost of electricity. Our park has a heated pool, tennis courts, shuffleboard courts, petanque courts, a regular schedule of activities from social card games to bike rides, motorcycle rides, golf, bowling, dances, musicals and plays, etc. The area is a birding hot spot with many birds from south of the border that are seen nowhere else than along the Rio Grande. The same is true of butterflies. Both these bio resources attract international visitors.

Our latitude is about the same as Ft. Myers. The natives are glad to see you. We are adopted by the locals and are called Winter Texans. If you want to be on the coast, there are campgrounds there, we're further inland but the coast is within 2 hours drive. We have shopping malls, all the usual chain food restaurants in abundance. We also have a host of genuine Mexican restaurants, and a full complement of other ethnic restaurants. There are golf courses with rates in the $30 per 18 holes including golf cart. RV parks range from the really basic and inexpensive to full resort facilities with broad activity programs at many RV parks.

We are going back to Gulf Waters in FT Myers Beach this year. We have not been there for 5 years as we have picked different places in Florida over the years (that's why we have wheels under us, isn't it?).

We have had a great time at Gulf Waters with a lot of nice people, and that's why we decided to go back this winter. I'm not going to say it is cheap but your chance of good and warm weather is pretty good and to us it's worth the price.

Hope this helps.

Look at Glades east of Labelle. Not real close to Ft Myers but far enough that it may be more reasonable. Admittedly in the middle of nowhere but we have overnighted there and it is OK. Try right in Labelle, there is a really nice one there.

Years ago, the Red Coconut was a place we enjoyed at Ft Myers Beach. Right on the beach...probably you should expect $$$.

Check out the Groves Rv Resort in Ft Myers. We stayed last year and are booked again this year. Not fancy, but close to everything, nice pool and very reasonable.

Sorry to be negative, but, nothing to do with RVing is reasonable.

Owning one, maintaining one, fuel prices and RV resorts. But it is something we all like to do and couldn't do when young because of work, house payments etc.

If you want to go to Ft Myers, pay whatever, after all, it is only for 3 or 4 months, or what ever time your going to spend there.

To: Whiterv - Once you get to North Ft. Myers the $$$ begin. Try some resorts near Port Charlotte or Punta Gorda. Alot of things to do there - it is a 20 minute ride south to Fort Myers. Check around - there are some best kept secrets also - call campgrounds and ask about their seasonal rates. The time period you're asking about is peak time and could already be booked for 2013. Good Luck. Don't camp LaBelle - off the beaten track - too far from good eateries and shopping.
