We were here in June 2018. The area is lovely, beautiful building, beautiful scenery, quite spacious but pretty much a ghost town. Remnants of Hurricane Irma are clearly visible. The Visitor center is pretty much in need of extensive repair. There is lots of water...More

The Flamingo Area was hit hard by Hurricane Irma last year. They're still in the process of fixing the area (including the Visitor Center) up. The area was far different than we expected. We thought it would be a rustic area with old wooden buildings...More

It is a major tourist attraction however it is far. If you go there during the week it feels away. Talk to the info persons to obtain the best of the glades.

In my life, I have been so many visitor centers, that I'm sure, that I know already what does it mean. Not, that we found there. A map, and an amiable lady, who informed us, that there are no flamingos anymore. Great! They were the...More

This area is still recovering from the hurricane damage, but you can still hit the beach, sea kayak, and walk many of the trails (including the Coastal Prairie Trail). We found the staff to be very helpful in recommendations. We missed the last canoe trip...More

Maybe we visited out of season but compared with other visitor centres was poor. No facilities for food or water. Considering this is the last port of call would have expected something if at least vending machines. All vending machines in the visitors centres only...More

That's the point. This is wilderness, and that's why they call it the Everglades National Park and the Everglades Wilderness Waterway. If you come to Flamingo expecting to be entertained, you WILL be disappointed. Notwithstanding the fact that the visitor center has been closed, that...More

Clearly badly damaged by the hurricane, but even-so, there’s just nothing here worth seeing. We spent $25 to enter the park (which was a surprise). It’s an hour drive on to the visitor Center. Very disappointed - there’s just nothing. Yes there is an information...More
