Amenities and Activities

The Flamingo campground is in a big open field with few trees and strong breezes can be felt from winds coming from Florida Bay with wonderful wildlife viewing opportunities!

  • Facilities:

    The campgrounds features solar-heated showers, two dump stations, picnic tables, grills, and an amphitheater for winter programs.

  • Nature Trails and Wildlife Viewing:

    Flamingo has several hiking trails and canoe trails, and opportunities for saltwater fishing are plentiful. More than 300 species of birds spend the winter in Everglades National Park, and there is ample opportunity to see crocodiles and manatees in the marina area where you can find services, kayak and canoe rentals, tour boats and the marina store run by Everglades Guest Services. Bring your kayak or canoe to explore backcountry trails, and small motorboats (5 HP and under) are allowed in many areas.

  • Ranger-Led Programs:

    There are many ranger-led programs available, mostly in the winter season (November 20 - April 15)! Be sure to stop in and ask a ranger about the current schedule of programs. Visitors can also visit our online calendar of scheduled programs here.
