Boat Tours, Paddle-craft Rentals and Select Conveniences Temporarily Unavailable
Glass-bottom, snorkel, diving and island boat tours, and rentals for canoes and other paddle-craft, are temporarily unavailable. The park is working to resolve the issue as soon as possible and regrets the inconvenience. Limited snack items are available.
There are two campgrounds in Biscayne National Park. Both are located on islands, and the only access to these islands is by boat. Private boats can access the campgrounds year round.
All camping and docking fees are waived from May 1 to September 1 every year.
Fees are the responsibility of the camper, and should be paid upon arrival. Any vessel in the harbor after 5:00 p.m. is considered an overnight stay, and fees must be paid in cash (bills or coins) at the kiosk near the harbor.
There is no RV camping in Biscayne National Park.
Did You Know?
In 2001, scientists taking a plant inventory in Biscayne National Park discovered a population of semaphore pricklypear cactus, one of the world's rarest plants. Previously known as only 9 plants in the lower Florida Keys, the new population numbered 570 plants...over 60 times the previous count.
