You drive down SR 9336 for almost 40 miles to get to the campground which is literally at the end of the road. This is a huge campground inside the Everglades National Park. Huge for its acreage. There are about 300 sites and they are spaced widely apart. Park entry fee reflects a 50% senior discount for an electric, 50 amps site. It would have been $8.00 per day for a dry site. No WiFi ...! No cellphone service, unless, you have AT&T. Verizon is totally useless here. The campsite do not have water nor sewer hookups. Most sites are dry. This is a very clean and well kept campground. They offer various attractions. Kayaking, boat rides etc. Make sure to bring all the food and beverages to last for the duration of your stay. Otherwise, you drive backwards for 40 miles to get back into town. The park rangers are very friendly and helpful. This is a place where we could stay for a couple of weeks or more. We camped at Flamingo Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This is a place for nature lovers. Far away from the next town. For many people there is no phone or Internet. Unless, you happen to have AT&T. Bring your bikes and or kayaks. This is an outdoors kind of place.

Large pull-through level sites with 50A. The campground is 40 miles inside the park but an easy drive and getting around in the campground is also easy. We couldn't get a Verizon signal or any channels over the air but really didn't miss it. We camped at Flamingo Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Very remote campground, 50 mile drive back to Homestead for any kind of service, Internet or phone connection. But...beautiful place to be in the middle of the Everglades wilderness. We saw abundant wildlife on various trails in the park. Many Ranger-led tours with bird watching, canoe tours, and lecture style talks on many subjects and aspects of the Everglades. Sites in the campground are very large. Smallish trees dot the landscape of the campground. They do have electric hookups, but no water or sewer. Campground was very quiet. This was our favorite campground of the 2014-15 winter. We are full-time. We stayed the maximum period of 14 nights and would return without hesitation. We camped at Flamingo Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Stock up your refrigerator and pantry in Homestead before driving out. If you don't have a reservation and the sign at the entrance kiosk says the campground is full, believe it. Don't make the 38 mile trip hoping to find an open site.

Flamingo is at the end of a secluded 27 mile ride through the Florida Everglades. If you want to really see the Everglades you must come here - sites are remote but have electric and water. We camped at Flamingo Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice National Park campground and especially a good value. We were in the electric section which must be reserved in advance. Level sites, 'easy' hook-up, picnic table, fire pit, clean restrooms - but dated. Now, the restrooms are clean but - the showers are cold water unless you are in the non-electric section where they have solar heat, although I understand this is a bit hit or miss, too. There is a marina and convenience store with groceries. They have a small restaurant with sandwiches at a decent price and delicious Key lime pie.

Very nice trails, VC and wildlife viewing. We especially enjoyed the Anhinga trail with its many birds and alligators, the Mahogany Trail where we saw a barred owl and the Eco Pond trail. We also took the boat tour down the canal to the interior. Marvelous narration the whole way and we really enjoyed this and would recommend it to others. We camped at Flamingo Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

National Park Senior Rate for electric site. Large, level sites. Good sites for one or more nights visiting the Everglades. It was off-season so self-registration was in effect. Can get very buggy at night. It was the middle of April and deer flies were out during the day. Took the Florida Bay boat tour (no bugs out there)for an enjoyable ride with the dolphins. We camped at Flamingo Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Price reflects the Sr. rate. This is a difficult campground to rate. Most of the points are for the Everglades themselves. THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO! If you want to eat it or use it, take it with you. Flamingo is 38 miles from the southern park entrance and even further from any store, service station or supplies. This is south Florida so it is muggy, buggy and hot most of the year. The water although safe to drink is salty. There is no internet, over the air TV and few phone providers reach here. There are extensive hiking, biking, paddling, fishing and boating opportunities as well as ranger lead programs and activities. If the campground were located elsewhere it would be only so-so. Most of the sites are dry camping only and many for tents only. Loop T will accommodate even the largest RV but only 41 of the sites have electric hook-ups, none have water. There are both dump and water fill stations in the campground. The bath houses in Loop T have cold water only (cold showers!). You can drive to the other loops and look for the bath houses with solar panels for a hot shower. Sites are level and spacious but the grass needed mowing and the dumpster overflowed allowing the buzzards to make a nasty mess while we were there. NOTE: We did not see this, but there are warnings posted about black buzzards eating the rubber around windows, wipers, etc. on your cars. They do provide loaner tarps and bungees for you to use. Am I glad we went? Yes. Would I go again? Probably not. We camped at Flamingo Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Beautiful, spacious campground! Clean bath house and easy access to site. We were in a pull-through site. The Flamingo Visitor's Center is a must stop. Also the Back Country boat ride was worth the price. The guide and boat captain were most informative. The only negative were the mosquitoes in January? We spent three nights and the rate is the Senior rate for the National Park. We camped at Flamingo Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Sites are large and pull-through, but there is nothing between them. Loop T has electric only, water is available at the restroom. There is no hot water in the restrooms on the T loop, but it is available at the other restrooms. Just look for the solar heating panels. There is no trash dumpster on the T loop either, just a recycling container. There are a lot of activities available nearby. This is definitely the campground to stay in if you don't mind the 38 miles drive. We camped at Flamingo Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

I spent two weeks in Flamingo and loved it it. It's miles from anything. 38 miles to food grocery so come prepared although there is a small restaurant in the visitor center area. Beautiful sunrises when the birds come flying in for the day. Fabulous kayaking. The only one problem for me was that I could not work there as AT&T had the only cell service. So unless they have gotten Verizon in the past year it's a bummer for me. Love the place. We camped at Flamingo Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

It may be he end of the road, literally, but that is where you want to be in the Everglades. A really nice well located campground with very large pull through sites with electricity only. Need to fill your water tank before settling in. This is a place for nature lovers not poolside sitters. Very convenient to any number of lakes, ponds, trails, kayaking trails, naturalist programs, birding walks, boat tours. Would go back again if I had the energy to drive all that distance.

Sites are huge but there are only a few trees and no shrubs etc. so there is not too much privacy. Restrooms/showers are ok but it seems hot water is either limited or nonexistent. Campground is ok but not particularly attractive. We camped at Flamingo Campground (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.

Campgrounds were spacious and there were a lot of them. The Flamingo NPS park and campground has not fully recovered from the 2005 hurricanes. We went for a 2 hour guided boat tour through the Everglades we highly recommend. We also went to the Visitors Centers and walking trails in the park. But the campground and area was not in very good shape. It was a long way down there from Homestead FL. I don't think we would do it again.

The NPS rangers wanted people to know that the Recreation.gov site does not list all of sites available (they are trying to get this fixed) so definitely call ahead and see if they have space. We love Flamingo and will be back as many times as possible. Info: electrical hook-up at the RV sites; dump stations and water are near the bathrooms. Level pull through, paved sites. No laundry facilities. Lots of beautiful areas to walk and view nature. Lots of mosquitoes (even during the dry season) so come prepared. We had an air card and had good internet reception. Day and night ranger programs. We camped at Flamingo Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in the ‘T’ loop which has 41 sites with electricity. You can only reserve a non-electrical site online and then you have to drive here and see if they have any open electrical sites. Our rate with the National Parks pass was $16/night for the site + $7/night for the electricity. Fresh water hose and dump station are next to the bathroom. No warm water showers on the ‘T’ loop but the bathrooms in the tent camping areas has solar-heated water and the showers are close to hot (but grungy). Sites are level pavement, pull-through and long enough for a big rig and the tow vehicle. We had a great time walking and going to the nightly ranger talks. Do your laundry and shopping before you come here, there are no laundry facilities, no real grocery stores (marine store has very few supplies) and it is close to a 50 miles drive back to Homestead. We camped at Flamingo Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
