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. During the winter and spring, the park's concessioner provides access to the islands for a fee. To arrange for transportation to the island with the park's concessioner, call 305-230-1100.
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.
