    Camped at the Flamingo Campground in January. The campground was just a big grass field with picnic benches all over with just one or two trees in the sites. There were like 100 sites in one place. If we weren't the only ones there, it wouldn't have been very private. The campground is right on the water. We used it to get an early start on a kayak trip to Clubhouse Beach which was a 7 mile paddle down the coast. I highly recommend Clubhouse Beach (or any wilderness site) but NOT the campground. It was very bland and annoying. IMPORTANT: if you plan on boat activities, be sure to check tides and plan for the high tides; at low tide the water line can be 100 feet farther out through "marl" (thick thick mud) that can be waist deep. We pushed our canoe and kayak through it and got all muddy, which doesn't bother me, but most people probably wouldn't like it. Also, it's the Everglades, there will be bugs, so be prepared with long sleeve/pants. They close all of Flamingo in the summer because the mosquitoes are too bad.

    One of the most unique camping experiences I've had. I went with my dad on a three day canoe trip. The bugs are terrible though!

    We camped at Flamingo in January and we were eaten alive by the billions of mosquitoes. we used bug sprays but still it was not good. The stars were amazing and the fishing was good but we had to use a boat.

    Only go in the winter or the bugs will eat you alive :0) Beautiful campground right in Florida Bay- Nicely shaded- lots of places to ride bikes and hike. Eco pond(boardwalk) is in walking distance to campground.
