Finally, after about three years of camping here, I am writing a review. This will be my 4th year camping at Mitchell's Landing on Loop Road/Big Cypress. This campsite is basically a piece of land, with a picnic table, and if you are lucky you will have a restroom near by. We usually call into the Oasis Center to reserve... More

A great route to take if on your way to the West side of the national park. If you plan on visiting the South and don't have time, then you can skip it.

This is the best way (short of a swamp walk) that gets you into the Big Cypress Swamp to see what everything is really about. Good place to see birds. I was expecting some quiet nice drive and the bird noises were overwhelming at some points, so much wild life! This probly isnt the best place to see alligators though.... More

Excellent way to see birds in the Everglades without a tour guide. Majority of road is gravel but not a bad ride. Be prepared to stop often to view/photograph the birds near areas of water. My brother and me went early in the morning and finished up a couple hours later. We saw lots of beautiful birds and came away... More

We took a couple of hours to drive the 24 miles. It is a hard packed gravel road, and there were no problems driving. Cars stopped off and on to look and take photos. We all just drove around the stopped cars and frequently we would stop with others and point things out to each other.. We saw alligators and... More

The loop is not a road for anyone in a hurry. It will take at least a couple of hours to travel the 24 miles of mostly gravel road. Freaquent stops are a must to catch the wildlife. Lots of birds, gators, fish, turtles, and snakes. Winter is the best time with low temps, no bugs, and docile reptiles. This... More

This is not the road for the impatient speed demon who expects wildlife to be presented to them like a monkey in a zoo. But, for the serious wildlife photographer or the individual interested in seeing wildlife in its natural habitat, then this loop road can be a real gem. It is a well maintained gravel road about thirty miles... More

Long gravel road, just glimpses into glades now and then to see anything. Otherwise foliage on both sides. We went to Everglades National Park first, that was great. One word on loop road boring!

Lots of wildlife to see. Gator, anhanga (long necked birds that swim underwater 1-2 minutes to catch fish and then due to lacking oil glands as most other water birds have, they need to fan their wings out to dry), also egrets, heron. Nice place for birding.
