Overview

Overview

Located at the tip of the Florida peninsula in Everglades National Park, Flamingo is a beautiful campground for visitors who enjoy nature, water activities and phenomenal views of the largest subtropical wilderness in the nation. The campground is a full 38 miles south of the main entrance to Everglades park and offers a true getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Everglades National Park has earned placement as a World Heritage Site and an International Biosphere Reserve. The campground faces the Florida Bay and connects to hiking trails, canoe routes and the Buttonwood Canal. In winter, campers can partake in ranger-guided programs or set off on their own to explore the mangroves and many species of birds that inhabit the area.

Natural Features:

Flamingo is on the east end of Cape Sable at the southern tip of mainland Florida. It faces the Florida Bay, which reaches out to the Gulf of Mexico.

Mangrove mud flats are the primary feature of this subtropical Everglades ecosystem.

Recreation:

Because the area connects to the 99-mile wilderness waterway, Ten Thousand Islands, water activities, like kayaking and fishing, are among the most popular things to do at Flamingo.

Wildlife across the bay includes manatees, dolphins, and plenty of shore birds. The red shouldered hawk and bald eagle can be spotted soaring overhead, and an array of woodpeckers can be seen-and heard-in the trees.

Facilities:

The campground has 234 drive-in sites and 64 walk-in sites open year round. The walk-in sites in loops B and C are on an open field with views of the bay.

The Flamingo Visitor Center offers educational displays, informational brochures, and backcountry permits. Near the visitor center are campgrounds, a marina and marina store, and several hiking and canoeing trails.

Nearby Attractions:

There's no shortage of things to do and see around the 1.5 million acres of the Everglades. Kayak or canoe inland through the mangrove forests to the Buttonwood Canal, Coot Bay, Bear Lake or Mud Lake, for the best birding.

Hikers can enjoy the half-mile loop trail to Eco Pond for views of wading birds and occasional sightings of the American Crocodile.
