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

I camped out there for about 8 days. There are no hookups for RV's, but there is water and a dump station, plus very nice, clean, modern bathrooms for those in tents or who don't have full facilities in whatever they are traveling in. What I liked best about the place was the lack of amenities. There were no lights... More

With Lob Lolly pines all around, the sights are great for stargazing, and private as much as possible given the natural plants. Be prepare for some mosquitoes, but watch for the warning from low to high and act accordingly. We had a swarm of knats come through, but they are not common to every site.

The unpaved 3-in-1 trail offers relief from the crowded boardwalks and a quiet walk through pines, grassland and mangroves on only 1/2 mile. Beautiful Rat Snake (harmless) on the trail, only one mosquito (Dec 19) and Red-shouldered Hawks screaming overhead.
