Why not Camp on Sanibel Island?
The state of Florida is known as a campers' haven, so it's no wonder that so many campers are surprised to find the camping on Sanibel Island is restricted to a small part of the island.

Above all else, Sanibel Island is largely a nature preserve.  Furthermore, camping is prohibited within the boundaries of these preserves and little land is available for camping facilities.  Despite the odds of finding a great site, campers continue to flock to Sanibel Island with gear or RVs in tow.  Fortunately, they are usually able to find accommodations at Periwinkle Trailer Park and Campground.  Those who are seeking a close encounter with nature will enjoy their stay at Periwinkle Trailer Park and Campground.  This state park is commercially operated and offers full services for tent campers, those with RVs and motor home enthusiasts.

Periwinkle is said to be the only active site for camping in Sanibel Island.  It is located on Periwinkle Way, less than mile from the Gulf of Mexico shoreline.  The campground offers many camping sites with full electrical, water and sewer hookups.  Guests at Periwinkle Trailer Park and Campground enjoy access to laundry facilities, hot showers, a pavilion and picnic tables.  Campers at Periwinkle may also take advantage of full-service washrooms, LP gas, shopping and more.

Sanibel Island is famous for its natural beauty, and Periwinkle Trailer Park and Campground offers you a sampling of this beauty at the onsite aviary.  View a variety of caged exotic and native birds, such as toucans and macaws, as well as mammals like the playful ringtail and brown lemurs.

This tent and RV camp on Sanibel Island is less than a ten-minute walk from Sanibel's white sandy beaches.  Take a stroll to the beach and you'll be able to spend hours searching through thousands of seashells lining the shore.   Other exciting options, like golf, shopping and dining, are located in the nearby towns.  Consider bringing your bicycles, as the bike paths criss-crossing the island are the perfect way to have fun and see the sights.

The best time to camp on Sanibel Island is from late autumn to early spring, when the days are clear and the nights are cooler and relatively mosquito-free.  The month of January is a particularly great time to camp on Sanibel Island with the kids.
