Flamingo

Scenic view of the night sky at Flamingo.
 

The main entrance road ends at Flamingo, which overlooks the broad expanse of the Florida Bay. During the winter, the bay is a haven for birds and a mecca for birdwatchers. In Flamingo, you will find a visitor center, marina, picnic sites, and 300-site campground. At the marina in addition to boat launching ramps, a variety of concession operated services are available, including slips for private boats, canoe and small boat rentals, charter fishing boats, a small store, and scheduled sightseeing boat tours. This is also the put-in point for the 99-mile Wilderness Waterway, a marked trail for boaters from Flamingo north to Everglades City. Flamingo is 38 miles away from the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center.
