Long Pines do not throw a lot of shade, so this was a hot walk. That being said, it's near the beautiful Long Pine Campground and is a great way to see plant life that differs from the lower, swampier elevations. The trail is long, but you can go as far as you'd like and then turn around. Even though it was January, I saw some flowers in bloom as well as some butterflies. The view up through the pine trees made for some incredible photos.

Camped here twice. Very nice area with clean bathrooms and showers. Good walking trails. Lots of birds. Do not forget your bug spray. This is in the woods and at night the mosquitoes are serious about sampling you!

I camped at both Long Pine Key and Flamingo campgrounds in a tent and preferred Long Pine Key. Long Pine Key is only open November through April, though. The campsites here are more private by virtue of the trees and vegetation. The campground has water, nice restrooms, and showers. A significant plus is there were much much less mosquitoes here than at Flamingo. You can relax around a campfire here and enjoy it, not under constant attack. The pond has nice reflections of the tall pine trees in the morning. The campground is close to the must-see Anhinga Trail boardwalk (with a lot of alligators, turtles, and birds) and the park's east entrance. Pa-hay-okee overlook is also a nice stop with a short walk to a deck with a view above the river of grass. I saw an owl in the woods here by the overlook and was told you can see him here often.

This is a beautiful and small campground in the Everglades National Park. The park has two campgrounds and this is the smaller one. Closer to the main entrance to the park. Very quiet, no reservations taken, no electricity but there are water spigots, showers, trash cans and picnic tables at every site. The sites are well spaced and if the place is not full it is a great place to camp. Two weeks max stay. A bit warm in summer but less crowded. Mosquitos can be an issue in the warmer times of the year. If you have the federal land senior pass it is half price. Beautiful place and very convenient to be inside the park rather than to have to commute from the closest hotel area.

Adjacent to the campground are numerous trails through the pinelands. Early morning is the best time to visit. You will see very few people and the air is usually cool.

This trail has trees all around. If you look close you look close you may even spot a few snails. Its a shorter trail but you do learn a few neat things if you read the signs along the way.

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, woodpeckers, and ravens. We did not see a single alligator in the lake (which we had observed in the past) Even the carcass of a dead anhinga on the shore was not luring any. We even observed a dragonfly cannibalizing another, devouring its entire head in front of us. There were also many species of beautiful wildflowers. It is a great place to picnic as well. A sign warned of eating fish caught in the lake due to high mercury content.

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 tents. No reservations (first-come, first-served) but there are generally enough spaces to meet demand. Restrooms and water but no hookups. New showers should be in service Spring 2016.
