The Glades RV Resort-Moore Haven FL 2/14-2/21/11

The staff was very friendly.  The price works out to $32.70 a night, weekly rate plus tax.  They offer no discounts of any kind, other then a weekly and monthly rate.  That said this is a very nice Resort.   Its is maybe 50% full.
SITE: our site is a back in about 70-80 foot long, very wide.  We are in a site that is along the perimeter of the park.  No one behind us, just a small pond, and future sites, see the hookups in place, in the photo's.   In front of us across the wide park road is a 9 hole golf coarse, part of the RV Resort complex, along with a marina on the Caloosahatchee River, part of the intercostal waterway.   The site is grass. There is a cement patio about 8x16. We had full hook up with 50 amp electric.  There are very few trees and no privacy between sites.  All roads in the park are paved and wide and great for maneuvering a large RV.  Plenty of parking at our site for the car and truck.
Laundry: There are two laundries in the park, each with four washers and dryers. Very clean in a open screened in room.
Amenities: As mentioned a Marine, 9 hole golf coarse, heated pool, club house with scheduled activities, fishing, exercise room and wide open space. They are on about 500 acres. There are  about 250 sites.  The sites along the perimeter are a better choice in our opinion.
TV-Phone: Our Verizon cell service was good, between 3-4 bars. There is no cable TV. Over the air TV, got all major networks and about 40 other channels. There is wifi in the park for a fee. We didn't use it as we use our Droid X to connect to the Internet.
Dog Friendly: Very dog friendly. Lots and lots of room to walk your pet.  There is a large area in front of park away from RVs to let them run off leash. It is not fenced.
Comments:There is no road noise.  Night lighting is very good, very well lite, a bit to lite for night sky viewing.  No picnic table, but go to office to request one. There is a small book exchange in the clubhouse. Bike riding is good in the park, as well as long walks. Boat lunch and kayaking on the river. About 40 miles from the heart of Ft. Myers. Nearest grocery store about 15 miles, Winn Dixie, in La Belle.  Lake Okeechobee about 10 miles to the nearest boat launch.  Closest restaurant about 15 miles in La Belle.  This is sugar cane harvesting season and there is some very  minor smoke and fly ash in the air at times.  We would return to this park in the future but hope for a discount.
