only one highway to and from this visitor's center, the visitors center was open but not "manned", we did not see ANY alligators or crocodiles the day we were there, disappointment!

I had hoped that this southernmost tip of the continental US mainland would be well worth the drive down. While the ranger was informative and gave us hints on where to go, none of those places were down in the Flamingo complex. I guess this...More

Nice drive in from Miami, wonderful views of the everglades. Many hidden lakes with alligators and crocodiles. Saw glad eagles, owls and manatees. Great camping and boating there as well. Highly recommend for family vacation.

We took a Pontoon boat ride today with our 3 - 12 year old grandchildren. We only saw one crocodile and that was pretty much it. We knew that there weren't any promises we would see anything, but thought the children would learn more about...More

The Flamingo area is well known for the terrible mosquitos. My first visit there in November was horrible. As soon as I got out of the Jeep I was swarmed by mosquitos. On my visit in April I was surprised to not be bitten at...More

Bathrooms always open. No stamps for the kids after 4:30. This is a beautiful location with not much to do. We saw American crocodiles and some weird cool trees. Beautiful breeze, and some nice information placards but not much to do. Did not see manatees,...More

We decided to drive to Flamingo when we visited at Royal Palm Visitors Center. The road didn't have much views to offer, just plain fields of Everglades. I thought Flamingo would have been some kind of small village but this was just a visitors center...More

I escaped here and was not disappointed! Wonderful, clean, sprawling preserve. Rangers were amazingly helpful, advised about trails for hiking vs biking, less vs more mosquitos, where some manatees were hiding out in the marina (! yes, saw them !) It was a great place...More

We drove all the way down to Flamingo and once there got a good view out onto the water from the raised platform at the visitor center, and then saw a couple crocodiles and manatees in the water near the docks. It is sort of...More

Lifetime dream to visit the Florida Everglades. Very wonderful time with our teenage son, who was very engaged and delighted with the experience as well. Birds! Manatees, gators and crocs. Very fun to watch mama and dad osprey bring fish to their babies.

Hello. I am planning a multi day camping trip, probably across whitewater bay and/or to cape sable on the Gulf. I am wondering, does anybody know what brand and type of kayak is rented at Flamingo? Are they suitable for multi day trips, i.e., waterproof holds to stow food, water and supplies? Thanks.
