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.
