Demand: High. Flamingo Campground lies at the end of the road, past the visitor center and located alongside Florida Bay. In the busy winter season it is quite popular and should be reserved in advance. During the summer some of the campground closes.

Open: November through May
Reservations: No, first come, first served
Location: On a side road off the Main Park Road 5 miles from the entrance
Amenities: Running water, flush toilets, grills and picnic tables, dump station
Demand: High. Long Pine Key Campground is much closer to the park entrance, and the very popular Royal Palm area. It also tends to be a lot quieter than the Flamingo Campground, which can be a bit rowdy at times. Unlike Flamingo, it closes completely in the offseason.
