Paid 60$ for a 30A and water site, no sewer. Bathhouse creepy, spiders and roaches, showers broken. No pool, no wifi, no tv chanels. I mean, i don't need all those hookups, but for 60$... They charge 15$ more for each people...that means 30$ for the site (honestly a fair price), plus 30$ in extra for my two 14yo boys! I think the national park beside is an obvious choice. Avoid this place!

I use to travel a lot with my trailer. I like National Parks and don't need much too be satisfied. We had a réservation at this campground... They extra charge 30$ per night for my two kids : outrageous! First time I see that (been around all north America). They say it's 15$ per kid per night.... Happy my two olders kids did not come with us... I would have paid a 60$ tax for having kids!!! Restrooms are ugly, landscape is ok.

Trail Lakes Campground is the perfect home base for exploring the Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Preserve. It is family owned and operated, the family has lived on this property for 120 years and were living there before the Park and Preserve ever existed. You can't get anymore authentic than this campground. A friend of ours was ecstatic to catch his first Peacock Bass here in one of the many catch and release ponds on property. we had a great time exploring the area all day and coming back to re-live our adventures with friends around the campfire at night. The stars at night were amazing and free from light pollution. The staff were all helpful, and Page at the front desk helped us book a Poleboat tour that I Highly recommend. We were unable to spot a Skunkape but the search continues.
