If you are camping in the park this is a good place to stay. There are restrooms but no showers. The lake is a good place to photograph both sunrise and sunset. The hiking trails lead through pineland. Foggy mornings are magical.

I had not visited this spot in many years and was eager to return. There is a beautiful lake with water as clear as an aquarium surrounded by pine rockland forest. We walked the entire perimeter of the lake, though the trails were in need of trimming. The wildlife we saw consisted of mostly dragonflies, as well as some hornets,... More

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

This is the Key that has the tiny whitetail deer. The place to find them though is not in the reserve, but more along the roads. The Blue Hole sometimes have a couple of alligators in it.

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.
