The tent sites are secluded and are available with shaded areas for the convenience of their campers.

Restaurants, grocery stores and shops are all just a few minutes walk or ride away. The beautiful beaches are a 10 minutes stroll from the campground. There are so many activities to participate on the island such as bicycling, boat rentals, canoeing, shelling and boat cruises. You will never lack for entertainment on Sanibel Island.
