Plan Your Visit


The Everglades is an expansive area of land in South Florida, which consists of 1.5 million acres of wetland. However, because this park covers a large area of South Florida, planning is a must. There are three entrances to Everglades National Park. They are not connected, and all are accessed through different areas of South Florida.

Miami Entrance
Homestead Entrance
Everglades City Entrance

All these areas offer a wide range of activities. You can take a short walk on the Anhinga Trail to spot abundant wildlife--turtles, herons and alligators! Climb atop Shark Valley's 65-foot observation tower for a bird's eye view of the glades. Glide over Florida Bay by tour boat or kayak for a chance to glimpse a crocodile, manatee, or dolphin. Watch as the sun sets over Flamingo, the southernmost point in mainland Florida. Explore the pinelands by bike, paddle amongst the mangroves on Nine-Mile Pond, or tour the historic Nike Hercules missile base. Join a ranger on a slough slog deep into the heart of a cypress dome. Find solitude on your own on a week-long canoe trip, camping along the 99-mile Wilderness Waterway. With countless opportunities for discovery the following quick links will help you plan an adventure that's right for you!
