About Camping

For an intense stay in the "real" Florida, consider backcountry campsites deep in Everglades National Park, many inland and some near water. You'll have to carry in food, water, and supplies, and carry out your trash. You'll also need a site-specific permit, available on a first-come, first-served basis from the Flamingo or Gulf Coast visitor centers. Permits cost $10, plus $2 per person per night for sites, with a 14-night limit, and are issued only up to 24 hours in advance. Front-country camping fees at park campgrounds are $16 per night.
