RV Park near Ft. Myers, Fla. for Dec/Jan

I've been searching for an RV park near Ft. Myers, Fla., for Dec. 30-Jan. 5 without success. It looks like everything is booked unless I am willing to spend a month. Any suggestions?

I have a similar problem in most all of Florida that time of year. The "seasonals" come and take up a lot of spots. I was in a park last week where they were urging the month to month and week to week tenants to move out so the seasonals (aka snowbirds) with reservations would have spots when they start arriving in late October and November. A lot of reservations are done a year in advance.

The easiest way to find a spot is go somewhere far out. No not "far out" in the 70's sense but one not so close to all the stuff. Not the RV "resort".

S.W. Florida in Season

I lived in Naples, FL full time for 13 years and owned a home there for 24 years. Most people that rent out there home or condo during high season require at least a 2 month stay, Some require 3 month. RV parks are no different. Usually reservations are made a year in advance. The nicest parks fill up fast. So, If you do find a short term spot for this December, spend some time looking around at some RV parks that would be acceptable to you and secure a spot for next season. I never rented my home out for less than full season (3 months) and many years had 4 or 5 month rentals. That is just the economics of it. Hope you are not shocked by the price. Back in the 1990's, I was renting out for $3000.00 per month. Expensive place to live. That is one reason among some others that we moved to western North Carolina 4 years ago when we retired. Good luck with your search.
