Campground host was very nasty. Bad attitude towards campers and thought him and our neighbor man were going to get into a physical altercation. The problem is there is never anyone at the gatehouse. If you don't go to the campground host site, then there is no way to know what site you're in. When you go to the host site, there is no one there either. So we continued to drive circles around the park and then finally pulled into a empty site. An hour later he is pounding our door down telling us to move and move now. Said we weren't on the list. Come to find out, the list is two days behind due to previous hurricane Irma issues. So we moved to overflow and ran off the generator. Meanwhile the electric sites sat empty. He patrols like he's a control freak and needs to be doing his job welcoming campers instead of grouching. Other than the nasty host though, this place is an incredible experience and beautiful to see and explore. We loved it there. Spaces are huge and plenty of room and many have shade. Beach is a nice place to play and photo opportunities are plentiful. Wildlife is amazing. Take plenty of mosquito spray, water and fuel and expect no cell coverage out there. Progress is being made on cleaning up the other 2 campgrounds there. We seen bulldozers and trucks and men working everyday we were there. It's coming along great. Plenty of trails to walk and explore and the Visitor center has rangers that are nice and will answer all your questions etc. They have a nice display center about the park and park maps available also. Love the Everglades. Would go back to Flamingo Campground. We camped at Flamingo Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.
Fuel your tow vehicle in town so you can explore the entire park from the camp.
