Welcome to the Everglades National Park in southern Florida!
Everglades National Park is comprised of 1.5 million acres in southern Florida and has 3 entrances, Flamingo, Shark Valley, and Gulf Coast. We entered in the main entrance for Flamingo near Homestead southwest of Miami. The Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center is located at the main entrance.
The entrance to the Long Pine Key Campground is about 5 miles west of the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center. Long Pine Key is one of two campgrounds in the Flamingo area of the park with Flamingo campground being the other one which is 34 miles further.
Campground: Long Pine Key Campground – Everglades National Park
Location: About 5 miles west of the Everglades National Park Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center
Site: 3 (back-in)
Services: dry camp
Comments: We love this campground as it has nice trees, spacious sites, and great site privacy for most of the sites. AND no bugs when we were visiting. We reserved the longest campsite in the campground and still didn’t have enough room to park in the site without parking our tow vehicle on the grass.
The campground has 108 sites of varying lengths and all are dry camping and most are back-in sites. There is a dump at the campground. The campground is very flat and laid out beautifully. We love this campground and wish we had stayed longer.
Next we ventured on down to Flamingo Campground for a week!
