Everybody needs a little summer getaway to put all the stresses of the rest of the year behind them for a while and just forget it all. There aren’t many better places in the world for a summer family vacation than beautiful southwest Florida. Whether you’re deciding on your travel destination for the summer or you’re a local looking for a perfect staycation, here’s why you need to consider Shady Acres this summer.
Need a New Idea for Your Summer Family Vacation? Discover Shady Acres
There’s a reason Florida is called the Sunshine State, and Shady Acres is the perfect place to enjoy all the natural beauty the state has to offer. While many campgrounds clear the land around the site to make room for campers, Shady Acres is built to give you a spacious site for your tent or RV while also preserving nature’s beauty. Each of our sites comes with a full hook-up, as well.
You’ll love relaxing in the shade of the dense forestry here, with cypress and palm trees growing in abundance, far from the noise of any busy roadways. If you’re lucky, you may even get a sight of some of the local south Florida wildlife right from your campsite. Raccoons, ducks, turkeys, and more critters all pay occasional visits to Shady Acres.
A picturesque and spacious campsite with a full hook-up for your RV is great, but it doesn’t mean much if you don’t have access to your basic needs. Luckily, Shady Acres has you covered here, too, with excellent amenities to take advantage of. Get your wash done at our laundry facilities, visit the boutique for thoughtful gifts, or stock up on anything you forgot to bring with you on your trip. We even have a car washing station.
Keeping cool in the summer is essential, and there’s really no better way than relaxing in one of Shady Acres’ pools or jacuzzis. You can also beat the heat by enjoying a meal or just lounging around in the shade of one of the campground’s pavilions. And once night falls, cozy up around the warmth of a bonfire at one of the fire rings and relax through the evening with your fellow campers.
Looking for some fun during your stay? Shady Acres has something for everybody. Play some shuffleboard, toss a few horseshoes, or try your hand at cornhole if you’ve got the skill for it. There’s even a life-sized chess board for you to play on with your family, whether you enjoy chess or would prefer to make your own fun on it. You won’t find that at many other campgrounds no matter where you look!
If you like staying in shape, Shady Acres has an excellent fitness facility to take advantage of. All of our exercise equipment is maintained in as-new condition for you to use. We didn’t forget your furry friends that may come on your vacation, either. The campground has a spacious dog park for the four-legged members of your family to enjoy. You’ll have plenty of fun playing in the park with them and watching them run through the obstacles, as well.
You won’t have any trouble finding Shady Acres. The campground is located just a stone’s throw from Interstate 75, one of Florida’s main throughways that runs through the whole state. Though it’s close enough to find from the major roads, Shady Acres is also deep in the woods enough to give you an authentic nature experience without the noise of traffic.
Shady Acres is just a short drive south of the Fort Myers urban area as well. There are plenty of shopping opportunities here if you’re looking for a break from the wilderness, or if you forgot any camping essentials. That definitely makes for a helpful backup if you leave anything out while you’re packing for your trip.
With all the fun you can have on the campground itself, you may not even need to leave Shady Acres for your vacation fun. Luckily for you, though, there’s plenty to enjoy outside of your campsite as well. You’re just a half-hour drive from Fort Myers Beach, for one thing. Take a day trip out to the shore and enjoy some fun in the sun and sand!
Does somebody in your family like hitting the links? You’ve come to the right place because some of the best golfing in the country is right here in southwest Florida. One highlight of the nearby courses is the San Carlos Golf Club. Or for more high-paced and thrill-seeking fun, head out to Zoomers in Fort Myers instead. The whole family will love zipping around in go-karts or going on the water in bumper boats, and they have tasty eats too.
For all these quality features, you might expect to be paying top dollar to stay at Shady Acres. Well, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn that we are a very affordable destination for your summer family vacation. Shady Acres offers daily, weekly, and monthly rates to suit your needs, with very reasonably-priced charges for extra fees like using the dump station or bringing your dogs to the campsite with you.
Maybe you loved southwest Florida so much that you want to make it an annual vacation destination. Shady Acres is absolutely perfect for that. We offer affordable monthly rates for storing your RV during the off-season until you’re ready to come back for another great camping experience. You really can’t beat that sort of convenience.
All of this and more is waiting for you at Shady Acres. The memories you and your family make in southwest Florida will last you a lifetime, and it may just become your favorite vacation destination. We’re sure that once you get a taste of what the area has to offer, you’ll be back for another visit each and every summer.
