Everglades Park Statistics
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.
Average visitation for the past few years has been about 1million 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.

Park Visitor Demographics
The National Park Service supports periodic studies of visitors into the park to better understand the perceptions, needs, and wants of the visiting public and surrounding community. A series of reports are available on the Park Visitor Demographics Page.

Female alligators will vehemently protect their nests and their young until they reach one to two years of age. Keep your eyes out for baby alligators in the Everglades - they're about a foot long with yellow stripes.
