We had a wonderful RV spot at the edge of the park, right next to the Everglades. The camping area was quiet at night (guests respected generator turn-off rules) with lots of stars in sky at night and birds fluttering in the early morning. Barbeque, bath and toilet facilities fine.

We were greeted by friendly staff. Easy set up & a well maintained flat site with a fire pit. Had a nice fire, enjoyed the sunsets and all the area attractions. Bring your own firewood or buy a bundle there. Quiet nights and very few bugs. Hot solar showers, too... We’ll gladly go back.

This is a dry camp ground. It has a nice dump station and place to fill for water. The bath houses are nice and the rest rooms are a bit dated but clean. Generator are from 8 to 8. However they will start bugging you about the gernerator and the noise they make about 6 or in one case 5. My generators are approved for campground noise level. From here it is 45 minute drive to Key Largo and Biscane Bay so you are not just confined to just the Everglades.

Well, I was worried I would prefer the national parks and... I was absolutely right. For the first time since this trip we finally had a "private" yard. and quiet, actual peace and quiet. No car doors slamming, beeping, people yelling, screaming, kids messing about and although you're not meant to I felt perfectly comfortable letting the dogs go outside off leash to do their business. To be honest there wasn't much point in putting our fence up as we were stopping for one night. Anyway, I found this site on yelp. It was $20 per night with no hookups and had a shady online paying system but I am so glad we did it rather than staying at a Walmart, which all the locals had warned us we would definitely get robbed! But needless to say I was nervous this booking was also a scam. When we arrived (a grueling 7 hours later) there was a half built concrete shed and a shipping container. But much to my surprise a very friendly lady came over and handed us our reservation. She said there was fresh water to fill up our tank and dump station round the other side but we could essentially stay where we wanted as the park was empty. Something I was shocked about for the christmas period! Unfortunately we arrived in the dark again, but after some hollering at each other we managed to get parked up. The space was not long enough for us to leave the truck hooked up to our 37ft trailer, despite me booking the largest site I could. So we parked up and immediately got the generator going as I was freaking out about the fridge and freezer defrosting. You can run generators 8am-8pm on this site. Nothing blocking the sites which was nice, no trees to navigate or concrete posts, just a driveway/pavement essentially. We did have one couple opposite in a tent, but they left 6am next morning and then there was literally no one around us. We had a lovely walk in the morning and on the way out saw a beautiful great white Egret and an alligator just hanging by the side of the road. That made my birthday extra special! The cell service was non existent yet our pepwave router managed to pick up 5mb of data, so our phones were usable but we didn't risk the xboxs for the night.

We only spent 1 night on our way to Key West. My only complaint is we called and called for 2 hours prior to arriving to see if they were full or not....never got nothing but busy signal or messages. I hate driving out to out of the way Campgrounds only to find they are full. It’s a waste of Gas & Time ! It’s a nice clean spaced out Campground with nice showers...never used the Bathrooms. Nice easily accessible RV Dump & Water

This seemed like the only option around for staying on the east side of everglades. It's a very large campground. We had no problem getting a site (apparently they are first come first serve but I've read reviews that there is a way to reserve sites) during "peak season". Some of the sites are fairly close to one another but we got one on the perimeter which was really nice and a little more private. The showers are huge plus (beware water only gets luke cold at best- no hot or warm water in the winter) and having flushing toilets are always nice. Tables and fire rings at each campground. I believe I read that you needed to bring your own wood but I think you could buy some. The campground is in a pretty ideal location. Close to a couple great trails (Anhinga and Long Pine Key). We were able to break up our 2 days in the everglades by splitting it with an day in Biscayne bay- driving too and from the campground to Biscayne NP was very reasonable from this "home base". The only down side to the campground is how close sites are to one another (again perimeter sites seem a little better). Additionally, walking around and seeing people sitting in their RVs watching TV kind of takes away from the camping experience (especially a NP). It's also pretty pricey for camping in a tent. Lastly, their staff is terrible. They're not bright (they'll have trouble figuring out which sites are open and then tell you sites that are obviously taken are actually open). They also lack any customer service skills and can be rude at times.

We stayed for one night on November 1st whic us the start of the season it was us and a few other people which made it for a very quiet stay. It had full working shower and bathroom facilities except the lights were not turned on yet which was not really a big deal for us. The camping spots were nice plush grass with nice paved areas so you can park so it made that much more comfortable. Highly recommend staying here just not in the month if February as we were told it gets very rowdy and noisy.

Stayed for three nights in mid April. Plenty of spots available. Mosquitos were non-existent. Spots are big enough and include palms and pines for shade and some mid-height understory for privacy. You can’t see your neighbors on three sides but of course those opposite you on the other side of the driving lane are in full view. There are bathrooms and showers, both typical national park fare. Water available. One guest did feel it necessary to come tramping through my camp site repeatedly (have never had that happen before). The check in folks also let me register for one spot In Loop H, only to come around on the second day to say I had to pack up and move to Loop A as they were closing the far end of the campsite for the rainy season. Ok, but why let me register for the back half then? I was furious and had the impression that others were too.

Stayed for 5 nights in early April and there were lots of available spots! The spots are decently large and private considering how many there are. The showers are clean, though without warm water. The check-in/out process is standard for a campground. Each spot has a picnic table and fire pit. For $20 a night, can't ask for much more. We did enjoy watching all the birds!

The spaces are large and private. While there are no hook-ups, there is fresh water and other amenities available. Lots of places to walk my dog. A beautiful campground only a few minutes into the park
