The Flamingo campground is in a big open field with few trees and strong breezes can be felt from winds coming from Florida Bay. The campgrounds features solar-heated showers, two dump stations, picnic tables, grills, and an amphitheater for winter programs.

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, boat rentals, tour boats and the Buttonwood Cafe.

Bring your kayak or canoe to explore backcountry trails, and small motorboats (5 HP and under) are allowed in many areas.

The Flamingo Campground is located 38 miles south after you go through the fee booth at the main park entrance in Homestead.
