Wilderness Camping

There are a number of ground sites, beach sites, and elevated camping platforms ("chickees") available in various locations in the park. Most wilderness camping sites are accessible by canoe, kayak, or motorboat, though a few may be reached by hikers.

A wilderness camping permit is required for all wilderness campsites and issued the day before or day of your trip at either the Flamingo or Gulf Coast Visitor Centers. Preparation is extremely important for a successful trip. Trip planning information can be found here.
