Indian Creek RV Resort Review & Rating
Indian Creek RV Resort Overview:
Review of Indian Creek RV Resort & Manufactured Home Community
Sun RV Resorts owns and manages several RV vacation resorts and manufactured home communities in Florida, Texas, Michigan, and Delaware. Part of what makes Sun RV Resorts enjoyable to stay at is their goal to create a fun, friendly and safe environment with bountiful amenities and lots of local attractions. As such, all Sun RV Resorts offer a wide variety of things to do such as dancing, tennis, billiards, darts, horse shoes, fitness centers, heated pools and hot tubs, shuffleboard, recreation halls, biking, nature trails, water sports, pickle ball, petanque, volleyball, bocce ball, planned activities, sport leagues, live entertainment, fishing, libraries, and so much more! In addition to daily, weekly, and monthly RV sites, each of the parks has an abundance of manufactured homes and Sun Resorts sells new and used homes in each of their parks.
All of above also holds true at Sun Resort's Indian Creek RV Resort & Manufactured Home Community in Ft Myers, Florida. Located in the heart of Ft Myers and about 3 miles from Ft Myers Beach, Indian Creek is huge with over 1500 sites - 1100 are RV sites, 113 are transient RV sites for daily, weekly, or monthly rental, and the rest are manufactured home sites some of which are for sale.
You won't get bored when you stay at Indian Creek RV Resort - they have three inviting recreation centers, three swimming pools, five tennis courts, nineteen sparkling lakes, and a slew of daily activities and events. And the guests, homeowners, and management are some of the friendliest and most outgoing we've encountered in any RV park - you can't go anywhere without everyone waving, smiling, or offering some kind words and you're encouraged to join in the activities and events.
The park has a 24 hour security gate, is clean, well maintained and manicured, and all of the roads are paved. The sites are close together and big rigs will find it a little challenging, but doable, to maneuver into some of the sites - the good news is that they have very experienced staff that will guide you to and into your site.
Indian Creek RV Resort is huge and it stays very busy during the winter when all of the snowbirds migrate to Florida.
Amenities and Fun Things To Do:
The RV sites at Indian Creek RV Resort are a mixture of pull thoughs and back-ins. All of the RV sites have grass parking pads which are perfectly flat and level and the hook-ups in most cases are convenient. Each of the sites has a concrete patio pad with a picnic table and all of the sites have 30/50 AMP service, water, cable, and sewer hookups. The pull through sites average 30' wide by 50' to 60' long - big enough for your toad and RV. Set your garbage out each morning and it magically disappears.
If you want to stay here and enjoy all of the amenities, but don't have an RV, Indian Creek RV Resort has some 2 bedroom double wides (24' by 40') available for daily, weekly, or monthly rent.
There are lots of tall palms swaying in the gulf breezes and a scattering of trees but don't count on much shade at your site. But who cares, you should stay here to get out of your camper and join in the activities and events or explore the area.
We were overwhelmed by the all of the activities and things that you can do within the Resort. And the guests are very active, outgoing, and friendly. Some of the amenities include:
- Fitness Center and Spa
- Golf Practice Area
- Three Heated Pools
- Game Room plus 10 Billiard Tables
- Five Tennis Courts
- 16 Lighted Shuffleboard Courts
- Three Big Clubhouses including a Community Center
- Fishing Lakes
- Three Laundromats
- Spotless Restrooms and Showers
- Pickleball, Bocce Ball Courts, 6 Horseshoe Courts, and 3 Sand Volleyball Courts
- Fee based daily, weekly, or monthly high speed WiFi
- Pet areas
Every day you can pick from several scheduled events like: movies, bingo, poker, dance lessons, bike rides, golf and tennis leagues, pickelball and volleyball, healthy living classes, crafts, socials, bowling, and lots more. There are leagues (from golf to pool to cribbage to couples bocce to darts) for lots of different events and the scores are posted in the community newsletter each week.
In addition there are nationally renowned entertainers (like the Patsy Cline Tribute, Sha-Boom, and New Odyssey) and lots of other events like: Craft Shows, Blacktop Party, Holiday Dinners, Free Movie Nights, Community Yard Sales, Bingo, Pancake Breakfasts, Cruises, Day Trips, Fashion Shows, Community Church Service, Relay for Life, Concerts, Trips to Hard Rock Casino, and much, much more. If you don't go to bed tired and exhausted, you must not have participated in enough of the events and activities!
Keep an eye out for alligators in some of the ponds and make sure you don't try to feed or bother them.
A Typical Texas Outsider Day:
It's impossible to get bored during your stay at Indian Creek, in addition to all the fun things to see and do outside the RV park, there are a variety of activities each day. The extreme of that is Indian Creek's Fun Day which includes something every half hour to hour: bike ride, billiards, chair volleyball, table tennis, horseshoes, shuffleboard, tennis bocce ball, line dance pickle ball, golf cart poker run, board games, darts, bike scavenger hunt, corn hole toss, and volleyball - wow, I'm tired just thinking about all those fun games in one day!
We enjoyed the pool, had a good and inexpensive burger at the clubhouse, played some pool, joined in a game of volleyball, and wish we had brought our tennis racquets.
We also had a blast in Ft Myers Beach - rode bikes from bar to bar and through the park which had a variety of live entertainment (mimes, music, and more), enjoyed a stunning sunset on the upper deck of Island View, some tasty food at Beached Whale, a couple different live bands, and some not so good Karaoke. Wow, what a fun and lively place to hang out.
We also took a day trip to explore and ride bikes on Sanibel Island and to Captiva where we enjoyed some good music and drinks at Mucky Duck.
Cool Nearby Activities:
The advantage of staying at Indian Creek RV Resort is that in addition to all there is to do within the Resort they are conveniently located to lots of fun things to see and do outside of the Resort. You're close to Ft Myers Beach, boating, fishing, shelling, golf, museums, historic homes, nature preserves, dog racing, major league baseball spring training, and much much more. Check out the Ft Myers Beach Website, Ft Myers Website, and Sanibel/Captiva Website to find enough to keep you busy for a month or more!

Additional Pictures of Indian Creek RV Resort
Texas Outside uses a tough rating scale and it’s difficult for a campground to get a “10”. Each park is rated on:
- Scenic Beauty: a campground that is flat with no trees or character gets a “1” and hills, lots of trees, beautiful lake site, and lush ground cover gets a “10”
- Park Condition: the cleaner, well kept, and maintained campgrounds receive high scores
- Amenities: we are looking for lots of amenities like restrooms, dump stations, playgrounds, boat ramps, shelters, concession stand, rental toys, and more.
- Campsites: low scores are given for sites that are right next to each other (good for getting to know your neighbors, but not what we’re looking for when we’re camping); have no lantern holder, no water or electricity, no fire pit, no grill, or no picnic table (or it’s rotten wood); have no trees and no view; the ground cover is crushed rock (my bare feet hate that stuff!); and they require a lot of work to get your rig level.
- Things To Do: Bonus points are given for campgrounds that offer lots of fun things to do at the park or very nearby – this includes: biking, hiking, climbing, boating, entertainment, golf, swimming, fishing, volleyball, horseshoes, and more
