Whisper Creek RV Resort LaBelle FL 2/21-3/3/2011

    We are here on two specials. First, 3 free days no strings attacked, special from Tampa RV Show.   Second a $99. "Stay and Play" for 4 days. This for a sales presentation for lots they are selling in their new section of the resort. A new section in a old park.  The new section will be a HOA.  Very clean and well maintained..   So far we had a very nice boat ride on the Caloosahatchie.  We also had a two great  lunches. All parts of the sales presentation, Very very nice. The older section is about 75% park models and 25% RVs. A couple of hundred sites. Very, very, very well maintained.
Facilities:  Lots are 50 X 60, back in site, large for a private park.  Site is very level grass.  No picnic table.  No shade. No privacy between sites. FHU w/50 amp electric. Double wide paved roads.  Very well laid out.  Very well lit at night. Some road noise. As stated above sites are very large for a private park.
Laundry: There is a very clean laundry.
TV, Phone, Wifi: There is cable in the new sections, but not all lots are activated.  We had a lot where it worked very well, about 60-70 channels.   Over the air TV is good.   Our Verizon cell phone worked very well.  There is also wifi which worked well.
Dog Friendly: Dog friendly.  No large open areas to walk or run your pet, but plenty of roads to walk around the park.
Amenities: There is a heated pool.  There are 2 club houses.  Shuffle board courts.  A small library.  A exercise area.  A small pond for fishing. Many, many scheduled activities.
Location: South central FL. About 30 miles from downtown Fort Myers.  About 1 mile from public boat launch on the Caloosahatie River, part of the intercostal waterway.  About 30 miles to Lake Okeechobee.   Two groceries stores in town, about 1 mile to a Save a Lot and about 3 miles to a Winn Dixie. A few restaurants in town and 4 or 5 fast food places.  Nearest hospital is in Fort Myers. Only mention this as we were here looking at lots and that is important to  us if staying put for 5-6 months.
Summary: Miles of roads in park to ride your bike or walk. Very very friendly staff and workers.

Comment: We would stay here again if we could get some type of a discount. The $40 daily rate and $240 weekly is a little to high.  Monthly is $930 + electric.  We did get to stay 3 extra days for free because we were considering a lot.   Forgot- they only accept cash or checks, no credit cards.
