Alerts & Conditions

As the National Park Service (NPS) monitors and responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, we work closely with the NPS Office of Public Health to use the latest science to guide our decision making. Access to Everglades National Park is as follows:

Open: All areas are open except for those noted for special closures.

Closed:

  • West Lake Boardwalk, parking lot, restrooms and dock are closed for repairs until early 2022.
  • East Everglades, encompassing SW 168 Street westbound to SW 237 Avenue and the entire roadway of SW 237 Avenue will be closed to all public use until late April 2022 to ensure public safety during construction operations with heavy machinery.
  • L-67 Extension Trail, located south along US-41 (Tamiami Trail) and the vicinity of Mile Marker 30, will be closed to all public use until further notice to ensure public safety during construction operations with heavy machinery.
  • Hog Key is currently closed to protect vulnerable resources.

While the listed areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, services may be limited. The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.
