Eating & Sleeping


Big Cypress is home to seven established campgrounds, five of which are open to tent, or vehicle camping (RVs, etc), and three of which can only be used by tent campers. Learn more about campgrounds at Big Cypress.

In addition, visitors may backcountry camp in the national preserve's 729,000 acres.


Restaurants, Grocery Stores & Picnic Areas

There are very limited food options within the national preserve. However, located at Everglades City, just west of Big Cypress, grocery stores as well as restaurants are available.

There are picnic tables throughout the preserve, at both visitor centers, and roadside parks.
