Everglades National Park

Camping & Lodging

Campgrounds are located at three places in the park, with tent and RV sites, restrooms, and water. There are no hookups in the park. All three campgrounds are open year round. Campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Long Pine Key Campground, in Homestead, Fla., is relaxed and secluded, and offers many Everglades highlights.

Backcountry camping is also available. Reservations for designated campsites may be made in person up to 24 hours before entering the backcountry. There are three sites accessible by foot and 43 additional sites available in Florida Bay, along the Gulf Coast, and inland, accessible by canoe or boat. All supplies must be carried in and out of the backcountry, including water.

The Flamingo Lodge is the only lodging available in the park. It is open year-round, with 103 rooms, and 24 cottages with kitchen facilities. A restaurant and cafe are open during the winter. For further information and reservations, contact Flamingo Lodge, Marina, and Outpost Resort at (800) 600-3813 or (941) 695-3101.
