Availability

I do a lot of travel myself, but camping is no problem anytime, once you have made arrangements with me to camp.

Access Road Conditions

I live on Fort Denaud Rd and it is a loop road from SR 80 to SR 80 west of Labelle. Tall rigs should enter from the west end. All trees in the camping have 10 ft.clearance. You can access from CR 78 to the north using the swing bridge east of property, but there is a 5 ton weight limit on the bridge.

Site Description

This is a home on two acres of land located on the Caloosahatchee River. It has a dock on the river with 110 volt 20 amp electric and water. There is also water near the house and the same 20 amp 110 volt electric on the river side of the garage. Nearest town is Labelle about 5 miles to the east.

Suggested Local Attractions

This is a country setting located on the Caloosahatchee River about midway between Fort Myers and Lake Okeechobee. To the southeast is the Everglades. Fort Myers is around 23 miles west for nightlife, Thomas Edison's summer home, etc. East there is an alligator farm on Route 27. You can go south to the Casino in Immokalee or on to Everglades City for air-boat rides.

About lmccollim

In A Few Words...

In mid 60's and Single. Retired over 10 years and have always done a lot of traveling. Hope to get in a lot more travel while I still can.

A Little More Detail

Born and grew up in western PA. Attended Penn State University. Moved to North Central Ohio in my early 20's and stayed there till 2011. I purchased a home in Florida in 2011 to enjoy the warm winters. I sure didn't miss the cold northen winter of 2014 - 2015. I enjoyed the pool
while all my neighbors up north cursed and shoveled snow. But I guess I did have to cut grass all winter.
I have three grown children. Two daughters and a son. More grand children than I care to admit and even a couple of great-grandchildren.
Had a couple of Golden Retrievers as my latest family members. They are now passed on. The last one traveled with me through Mexico, all 49 continental states, and all of Canada from the Artic in the Northwesteran Territory across to New Brunswick. We only had the Atlantic Provinces left to complete all of North America. Unfortunately she died two days after I closed on my home here in Florida in 2011.
I guess it will not be to much longer till I get a new puppy.

On our arrival, Imccollim made us feel extremely welcome and it just got better from there. He is a man of many talents who is happy to share his knowledge and only too willing to help and point you in the right direction in your travels. We stayed in a beautiful shaded spot in front of his home on the Caloosahatchee River. He loaned us his kayaks for a paddle down the river, dropped us off, picked us up and really spoilt us. He is very easy going and likes a chat, it’s just a shame we were not able to stay longer.

Spent a few days with this outstanding host. Very knowledgeable, excellent conversationalist, and a world wide traveler. Placed my rig within 10 feet of the canal and watched the boàts & bridge operations. Stop by and visit, you will not be disappointed.
