Long Pine Key Campground Closed
Due to improvements to park roads and parking lots, the reopening of the Long Pine Key Campground will be delayed due to paving work. It will reopen mid-December. Those desiring to camp will be able to utilize the Flamingo Campground instead. More »
The Flamingo Campground, located 38 miles from the main park entrance in Homestead, has 278 total sites.
There are 234 drive-in sites (55 with a view of Florida Bay), 3 walk-up group sites (on the water's edge), and 40 walk-up sites (9 on the water's edge).
Showers are now solar-heated, two dump stations, picnic tables, grills, and an amphitheater for winter programs.
Flamingo has several hiking trails and canoe trails, and opportunities for saltwater fishing are plentiful.
NOTE: the reservation company will declare the campground full when they have sold their allotment of campsites. Many first-come first-served campsites still may be available.
