Seminole Campground

It can be difficult choosing campgrounds or RV parks sight unseen. This is where tedious research can pay off. And for us, it did.

We are spending the next 3 months parked at Seminole Campground in North Fort Myers, Florida. Our initial reaction was favorable but the longer we’re here the more we feel we’ve really hit the jackpot. Seminole is a very friendly & active community. The park is meticulous. The Spanish moss laden oaks, tall pines & palms, the crushed shell lanes & walking trails all give this place an “Old Florida” feel. A feel we’ve grown to like tremendously. It’s so much nicer than the overcrowded touristy areas. Although we’re not all that far removed from that either with Fort Myers just across the Caloosahatchee  River.

Often in our travels we are reminded of just how small this world is. The first people we met upon our arrival to Seminole were the folks parked on the site next to us, Jack & Suzanne Turner. Not only are they fellow Hoosiers but they’re snowbirds from the same small town where our daughters Kristi & Bobbi-Leigh live AND Jack is also an Allison Transmission retiree. Surely, we’ll have no shortage of conversation fodder with them.

This first week here will basically be one of getting a feel for the surrounding area & getting caught up on things that we’ve been putting off. In the upcoming days we will be giving Suite Pea a very thorough cleaning including sorting through & reorganizing storage bins & cabinets. We have carpet cleaners scheduled for Friday. But the rig isn’t the only thing long overdue for a cleaning, Tucker will be a dog groomers nightmare come Thursday. It was Labor Day weekend when he last received a cut & had his nails trimmed.

Once the work is finished, the fun can begin.

Seminole has a very nice walking trail.

  1. This is awesome Gayle! I love the pictures of the park. And the beach is beautiful…nice the pups can enjoy it too, so often that’s no the case. Does the park have a fenced in doggie park? We are always looking for places to play ball.

    • Yes Gay, Seminole does have a fenced in doggie play area. In fact there are 2 joined together. I believe one is for little dogs & one for large. This is a very dog friendly park. All sizes & breeds. The couple behind us have 4 dogs so obviously not a limit on how many. Also beaches in area allow dogs to accommodate their families to swim & sunbathe.
