I was afraid you'd call me out on that one...

davis.acw, I will tell you this but you must promise to keep it to yourself. If the word gets out about the W.P. Franklin Campground in Alva, (N. Ft. Myers), we will never get a spot. It is a Corps of Engineers Campground, all sites are on the water plus there are 8 boat slips for the same $ as the camping sites. You must promise now not to spread the info, OK?

Franklin locks, my favorite when visiting my mother in law in Alva. She's a quarter mile east on the other side if the river. I stay at the CG while my wife visits her.

Alva diner. Cash only and worth it if I remember correctly. The mother in law usually pays.

Sites are not large, but they are fairly private. We enjoy Lake Kissimmee State Park a lot.
Periwinkle looks nice, but "no dogs!" Will have to keep searching-

I have camped at Chassahowitzka River and Coastal Swamp Campground and liked it especially for kayaking. I did not see any swamp. Probably helps keep the crowds away.

This is a county campground. I have found that county and city parks/campgrounds are some of my favorite places to camp.

The locks is a surprisingly nice campground. Two families that camp from my work go there often and rave about it.
