    We were warned by the park ranger that the smell was pretty bad (partly from human sewage) and that it was "pretty low" due to drought. Well, it reeked and was bone dry and had a lot of mosquitoes.  more »

Where to stay in Everglades National Park

Everglades National Park runs two full-service campgrounds inside its boundaries: Long Pine Key and Flamingo. The former operates on a first-come, first-served basis, and the latter accepts reservations. If you prefer bunking down on a mattress, Homestead and Florida City are your most convenient options. These two towns sit adjacent to one another about 16 km (10 mi) from the park's main entrance, and in them you'll find numerous economy chain motels. North of the park, the Miccosukee Reservation features a hotel and casino. If you're traveling Florida's western coast, Everglades City offers a few rustic inns, lodges, and economy motels.
