2/22 W.P. Frankin Locks and Dam

I am back along the Caloosahatchee River, but this time farther west and closer to Ft. Myers.  This time the campground is on the north side of the canal.  The river is much wider here, hence a wider dam.  The advantage of this campground is that it is on a long island instead of on the bank of the river, so every site is on the water. 

Here is how it looks on Google Maps:

Some views from my campsite and the walkway to the dam. 

These are campsites for boaters, but apparently the docks are falling apart, so they are closed.

Telephoto view of my campsite from the fishing pier near the dam.

Some boats ready to go through the locks.

And some anhingas on the buoys keeping boats from going over the dam.

  1. I just love that campground! I spent my first night in my motorhome there.
    How long are you in the area? I am also a Solo Traveler and am 1 hr north. Are you on RVillage?
