A lot of the parks down here are 55+ senior parks. There really aren't a lot in the Punta Gorda area.

When we moved here, we stayed at two campgrounds on River Road, off I-75 exit 191. This is east of Venice and northwest of North Port. Further northeast than you specified, but also closer to the Venice and other Gulf beaches. 30 minutes or so to Port Charlotte, 45 to Punta Gorda. 25 minutes to Venice Beach, the shark tooth capital of the world.

The northern one is Venice campground, nice park but at the end of a very dusty dirt road.

The other is Ramblers Rest, about two miles south of the Venice camp. More developed, but now an Encore park, and thus more expensive. Neither has beach, but both have the Myakka River running behind them.

I would suggest using to look at the area you are interested in. It's useful because it will show adjacent towns.

I suggest getting full hookups here. April in southwest FL can have hot days. You might appreciate A/C.
