Florida is a popular destination for RVers all year round. There’s something for everyone to enjoy when you consider the ocean access on three sides of the state, major cities, beaches, forests, and entertainment hotspots. But picking a place to set up camp can be overwhelming. If you’re in the market for an upscale destination this season, try Pelican Lake Motorcoach Resort.

This is a resort that specifically caters to Class A motorhomes. There are large parking spaces, waterfront views, and plenty of amenities and activities to fill your time. Here, you can also enjoy easy access to the Gulf Coast, as well as a huge selection of lakes and rivers.

Although this park is well-reviewed, it’s not as well-known as some other Florida resorts. In this regard, it’s a bit of a hidden gem, so be sure to keep it on your list if you’re traveling to southern Florida this year. It’s a bit pricey, but you’ll get great bang for your buck!


Pelican Lake Motorcoach Resort is located at 4555 Southern Breeze Dr, Naples, Florida. It’s just on the outskirts of Naples, and Fort Myers isn’t far away either! This is a great location because you’ll be close to a decent-sized city, but you’re also far enough away that you can spread out and enjoy the natural beauty of the area.

The resort is quite large (102 acres), with a grand total of 289 RV sites. They’re well-spaced and positioned though, so you won’t feel too crowded with your neighbors. The sites also feature beautiful landscaping that is well-maintained by the staff. This park has been around for a few years, so all the plants and trees are fully mature.

As mentioned above, Pelican Lake Motorcoach Resort caters to Class A motorhomes. They require that each vehicle be at least 33 feet long, and 10 years old or newer. If you have an older model and still want to stay here, you can contact the staff at 239-417-1600 to request a site. These rules ensure that everyone can enjoy their stay in a site that is well-suited to their vehicle.

Guests can either buy a full-time site, or rent for a short visit. If you’re seeking to buy a long-term campsite in Florida, this is a great place to do it! Plenty of full-timers love this area, but it’s nice for seasonal visitors as well.

A variety of different sites are available to rent. The specific prices may vary based on the season, site location, and day of the week. But generally, rates are between $115–$210 per night. Visit the resort website at pelicanlake.com for more details about reservations.

It wouldn’t really be a resort without some top-notch amenities. Of course, every site has full hookups for water, sewage, and electricity. This gives each RV all the resources to function as a miniature home. In addition to the beautiful landscaping around the sites, some of them also have extra perks like brick parking spots, comfortable chairs, fire pits, shade umbrellas, decorative fountains, storage sheds, and more.

If you need more space than your RV bathroom can provide, you’re in luck. Pristine bathrooms and showers are available to every guest, so you can freshen up anytime you feel like it. Almost every site has direct waterfront access as well, thanks to the series of small beaches and lakes that are scattered through the resort.

This is the ideal destination for water lovers because you have endless options to enjoy. Take a dip in the luxury pool and hot tub, or go for a more natural approach. Fishing, swimming, and water aerobics classes will help you enjoy the fresh air and stay active. Or if you want to relax, just pull up a seat along the shore and enjoy the sand and sun.

There are also plenty of resort activities that you can take advantage of. The high-end clubhouse contains a library, a fitness center, and game room, a conference center, and a large open space that’s perfect for parties and family get-togethers. Don’t miss out on the planned events like bingo, movie nights, community dances, traveling food trucks, farmer’s markets, and more!

Walking trails wind through the park, shaded by palm trees and cooled by the lakeside breeze. You can also enjoy a game of pickleball at one of the courts.

If you’re looking for a place to put down roots and find a great community, you may even want to consider buying property here. The on-site realty team can help you find a great spot!

Nearby Activities/Attractions

Although there’s plenty to do within the resort itself, you’re also in a prime location for a variety of activities. If you love golfing, this is the place to stay. Pelican Lake Motorcoach Resort is close to more than 150 golf courses, so you’ll have your pick of the litter. The sandy beaches of the gulf coast are also just a few minutes away, so you can enjoy a day at the beach before returning to your luxurious campsite.

Ocean fishing is another popular pastime in this area. With the coast at your doorstep, it’s easy to drop a line from the shore, or take a boat out for some deep-water fishing. If you enjoy hunting for seashells, sea glass, and other treasures, head over to Tigertail Beach for some spectacular beachcombing.

Kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkeling, and a variety of other water activities are open to you. There are guided tours and rental facilities galore, so you can take things at your own pace.

This resort is also in a perfect middle ground between cities like Naples and Fort Myers, and the natural beauty of the Everglades. If you want to go shopping, find a great restaurant, or enjoy movies/concerts/other entertainment, it’s never far away. But the same thing is true of the great outdoors. There are miles of trails to explore in the lush forests of Florida, so be sure to bring your hiking boots.


Finally, let’s wrap up with a few reviews. The Pelican Lake Motorcoach Resort is one of many RV parks in the Naples area. But it has one of the best overall ratings with a 9.4/10 on RV LIFE Campground Reviews. Nearly every reviewer gave it a score of “Excellent.”

Many reviews mentioned that the area was a perfect mix of natural and urban. Everything they wanted/needed was within easy reach, which can be rare for an RV park. Others noted that the prices here were a bit steep, but they often found it to be worth the money. The time-honored saying holds true here: You get what you pay for!

Aside from the price, there were a few minor complaints about the lack of a dog park and limited laundry facilities. But with the extensive walking trails, your furry friends will have plenty of space to stretch their legs.
