  • Long Pines do not throw a lot of shade, so this was a hot walk. That being said, it's near the beautiful Long Pine Campground and is a great way to see plant life that differs from the lower...

  • Camped here twice. Very nice area with clean bathrooms and showers. Good walking trails. Lots of birds. Do not forget your bug spray. This is in the woods and at night the mosquitoes are serious...

  • Probably a much better camp ground than Flamingo in terms of bugs. Sites are widely spaced out with lot of trees and vegetation giving you privacy, but no hookups. The pads are not nearly as long as advertised. My 38' MH barely fit into site 96 although it's advertised for 45'. I was 6" from the undergrowth in the back and only had about 2' before I would have been into the road way. Thankfully, they don't really care if you park on the grass. We say lots of sites that had rigs on the grass. The showers are solar heated, so you can get a luke warm shower later in the afternoon. Recycling is a joke; the bins are rusted or locked shut and say "recycle in dumpster'. How weak is that Everglades NP! Biscayne NP is a fairly short drive away and a good place to take a snorkeling tour of the coral reef. Take all the short little hikes around the Park and don't miss the Nike Missile Base tour. If you get the gray haired retired Coastie, you'll get a great tour!
  • Beautiful area, nice trail, lake seemed a little low (expected this time of year)
