How about if you don't stay on Sanibel and stay in Fort Myers or Fort Myers Beach area?

You didn't really say what you would be enjoying while there. I'm 3rd generation Floridian and from Venice / Englewood / Sarasota area so I like it down there. I don't do much in the way of glamping and like state parks best. For me, if I was going for the beach, I would be looking at the Destin / Ft. Walton Beach area. I forget the name, but there is a private campground with the primo sites mere feet to the Gulf of Mexico and a boat load of state parks there as well. If you can find an opening on the Atlantic sites, Gamble Rogers is and excellent and well managed park (I've hosted there). The intercoastal side had huge sunny sites and is nearly new.

Haven't stayed at many sites with sewer hookup south of Orlando.
Lake Kissimmee state park was really nice but very rural and no sewer
We were looking at one of the KOAs near fort Lauderdale, which looked pretty nice, but haven't stayed there yet.
Currently staying at the st Augustine beach KOA for the weekend. Nice small KOA, but facilities a bit dated

You really need to call, it's a county park. They will say that they are book-up, but I know they have drop in spots....That they keep open for short stays and not seasonal. last time I talked to them they said Dec. is not a problem but January 1st, is when they start there season.

Also manatee hammock is a great place to watch launches from Cape Canaveral, right across the river!

Many parks.. even state parks keep 1 or 2 emergency sites that are "walkup" meaning on demand, rented day by day. Last time hosting a family stayed in one for 14 days straight .. just no guarantee. Counties and even cities have parks. The Escapee club has tons of info on all kinds of camping.

You can also try the Glades, in central part of Florida. Not a bad park even has a golf course and pool. We had a FROG rally there about 3 years ago.

I like The Glades also, we are more glampers than campers.
