Campgrounds of Everglades

There are two developed campgrounds in the Everglades National Park frontcountry. One is near the entrance, the other is all the way at the end of the road.

Flamingo Campground

  • Size & Cost: 274 sites, $25 per site
  • Open: All Year
  • Reservations: Privately managed, Reserve Online
  • Location: At the end of the Main Park Road 39.1 miles from the entrance
  • Amenities: Running water, flush toilets, solar-heated showers, grills and picnic tables, dump station
  • 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.

Long Pine Key Campground

  • Size & Cost: 108 sites, $25 per site
  • Open: All Year
  • Reservations: Privately managed, Reserve Online
  • 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.
