Are you fond of lush hideaways, ice cream socials, and hanging out with other over-55s? If you answered yes to all three, you should probably check out Gulf Coast Camping Resort in Bonita Springs, Florida! This laid-back facility geared toward retirees features all of the necessities you need to explore this area (with your doggo by your side, of course), and if you like it here, you can even stay for the season!
There are 260 RV spaces at this facility along with overflow space for tent campers. If you do choose to stay here in a tent, you may have a fire as long as it is kept in an enclosed fire ring. The RV lots offer full hookups and WiFi is available on the property. While here, you'll also have access to a laundry room as well as showers and modern restrooms. Rates to stay start at $70 per night, with discounts coming into play when you opt for a longer visit. They also offer seasonal rates for any who'd like to call Gulf Coast home for a while.
Though the beautiful coast is only 6 miles from the grounds, you don't have to leave the property to have a good time. Hop in the pool to cool off on those steamy Florida summer days -- it's not heated, but we doubt you'll mind. If you're more into activities, take to the horseshoe pits, shuffleboard courts, or try your luck in the catch-and-release pond. For a day trip you're sure to enjoy, take your woofer to the nearby dog beach for hours of fun splashing in the waves.
Speaking of pooches, the park owners are very pup-friendly, having a beloved, blind barker of their own; however, they do ask that you keep your canine pal leashed while at the facility. Also -- as with anywhere you go -- be sure to clean up after your four-legged friend during your stay!
