This is not really an attraction but a site in Everglades National Park (off main park road 7 miles south of the main entrance) where there is a campground and a picnic area. A pond by the picnic area is suitable for fishing and there are hiking trails in the vicinity. Campground open November-April has 108 sites for RV and... More

I stayed at this campground for a couple of nights in early February 2015. I liked my site at the far end of the campground by the amphitheater. The bugs were not bad. I enjoyed the evening ranger programs in the amphitheater. The bathrooms were very clean, but I REALLY missed not having showers. The campground's website says they always... More

It's about a 13 mile trip to go from the campgrounds to the lake and back. Beautiful views the whole trail!!! Very peaceful, sometimes the trail is completely empty. It's best when weather is cooler to avoid mosquitoes. We usually bring snacks and have them by the lake, we enjoy the view and have a little break before we head... More

sites well spaced out so you are not too cozy with the neighbors with very convenient comfort facilities... though no showers, for shower you need to go to flamingo, button up early and tight at night, mosquitoes everywhere

We checked this out and decided it would make the best place within The 'Glades to camp. The pine forest protects campers from the wind, provides shade and the campground rings a nice pond for scenic pleasure. Didn't see anything unique by way of flora or fauna here, though.

Easy walk on a paved path through the pines. Different views than from other trails in the park. Worth a quick stop, then keep moving to other trails as you work your way down to Flamingo.

this was my second time to go there, enjoyed it as much this time as 3 years ago. It has changed on weekends, the campground is full and really noisy with kids, still don't like having to turn generator off at 8 at night while kids are still screaming and making lots of noise.

When I returned to the Everglades, I wanted to spend more time on the Long Pine Key trails. Per the rangers May is the borderline for the insect outbreak, so I biked instead of hiking. What a great time. While Shark Valley is more popular for biking, Long Pine is a much better venue. I began at 8 and finished... More

The Pinelands are one of the many habitats of the Everglades and Long Pine Key is the best place to experience it. There are several trails, camp grounds and picnic tables. As there are few food opportunities in the park, we packed sandwiches from Subway on Highway 1 and ate at Long Pine. It was a great setting for lunch... More
