Everglades National Park Visitation
National Park Service
Everglades National Park keeps track of the total number of visitors that enter the park through its two entrance stations (Homestead and Shark Valley). While this doesn't include those who enter through the nearly 1/2 million acres of surrounding waters, it helps park managers identify the needs of visitors.
A variety of statistics are available about each National Park across the country individually and collectively through the National Park Public Use Statistics Office. Click here if you'd like to go this website for additional detailed information about visitors to your national park.
The table below identifies the number of visitors since the park was dedicated in 1947.
Did You Know?
Limestone is the porous, sedimentary rock you see in the Everglades. These rocks are made of calcium and contain fossils of sea life, evidence of ancient seas that once covered the area. The limestone aquifer under the Everglades acts as the principal water recharge area for all of south Florida.
