Getting to Everglades National Park

Driving to Everglades

To reach the Flamingo area, take the Florida Turnpike south until it merges with US-1. Turn right onto Palm Drive and follow the signs to the park. To reach the Shark Valley Visitor Center take exit 25 from the Florida Turnpike to Highway 41, the Tamiami Trail, for 25 miles west.

Below you will find an interactive map showing the location of the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center in Everglades. Following this are the official park maps provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file or a simple JPEG image file (some of these files can be quite large). The map links will open in a new tab. Note that while these maps are useful for general navigation around the park, if you plan to do any hiking, you should really have a proper Everglades Trail Map.
