Collier-Seminole State Park Review

The opportunity to try biking, hiking, camping, and canoeing into Everglades territory make this park a prime introduction to this often forbidding land. Of historical interest, a Seminole War blockhouse has been re-created to hold the interpretative center, and one of the "walking dredges"—a towering black machine invented to carve the Tamiami Trail out of the muck—stands silent on grounds amid tropical hardwood forest. Campsites ($22 per night plus tax) include electricity, water, and picnic tables. Restrooms have hot water showers, and one has a couple of washers and dryers outside.
