Lee County, Florida: Snowbirds have flocked back to Southwest Florida RV resorts, possibly more so than last winter.

And, despite the shaky economy, new parks and expansions are rolling along. These include:

• Caloosa 80, a Class A motor coach community planned for a parcel just east of Hickey Creek Mitigation Park on State Road 80; and

• Golden Palms motor coach Estates on State Road 82 east of Alabama Road.

The latter project is by Harp Development, the company behind the upscale Cypress Woods RV Resort on Luckett Road.

Cypress Woods caters to Class A motor coaches. However, Harp has preliminary plans for a new, adjacent project – Cypress Trail RV Resort – which would welcome nearly every class of recreational vehicles.

“There’s still a strong Class A motor coach market, but there was a dearth of spaces for regular folk,” said Jack Carver, Fort Myers-based publicist for the regional branch of the Florida RV Trade Association. “A lot of people go to the state parks,” Carver added, “but there are only so many state parks.”

Nationally, demand is strong for existing sites, according to the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds.

“Most RV parks and resorts that cater to snowbirds are reporting higher occupancies this winter than they did last winter,” said Linda Profaizer, president and CEO of the RV parks association based in Larkspur, Colo.
