    Great lodging at a beautiful national park
    We stayed in Flamingo Lodge, newly reopened. We loved our accommodations—these are shipping containers, retrofitted to serve as sustainable lodging at the beautiful Everglades national park. Every unit has a peaceful and lovely water view, a very functional kitchenette with burners and utensils, a comfortable bed—all really nice and affordable. The Flamingo Visitor Center is a short walk away, with multiple daily options for guided birding and other walks, boating and kayaking tours, and other presentations. We loved our stay here. The on-premises restaurant is nice, with pleasant outdoor seating. Highly recommend.

    Learn While On A Boat
    We hired a car and drove to the southernmost point of the Everglades National Park. You pay 35$ for a vehicle to enter. The road is 40 miles straight! There are signposts to trails that you can drive to, park and walk. We turned into ‘Royal Palm’ and walked the Anhinga trail 1/2 mile loop. It was amazing! Aligators, amazing birds, turtles and fish. Easy for buggies as the boardwalk is wide and flat. We then went on another 38 miles to ‘Flamingo’ . No birds of that name in sight but we joined a boat tour at the marina and explored the waterways with a naturalist guide. She really understood the flora, fauna and animals. We saw crocodiles in the salty brackish water, different species of Mango trees and birds. We saw some Manatee back in the marina. It was a gentle ride, suitable for kids too in a wide flat boat with a roof for shade. We found our guide interesting and informative. It was a nice trip!

    Where Wetlands Meet The Ocean
    Arrived at Flamingo after entering the park on the east side and drove roughly a half hour to arrive. The elevation does not change and the views are amazing going from wetlands to open sea. The wildlife of Osprey, flamingos and other birds such as woodpeckers were fabulous. There is a nice visitors center with an abundance of information and maps to view of the area. A must stop if in the park.

Stayed in an eco-tent with my two kids (2 and 5). It was great! Super easy to drive right up to campsite. We explored the area nearby, played on the beach, watched the birds and made a campfire. It’s a bit different not to have campfire right at the tent, but my kids loved riding the giant wheelbarrows back and forth on the short walk. Easy and fun camping trip for families with young kids!

I have since found that August is one of the worst times to come to Everglades, but that's ok. VERY few people in the park--like, most parking lots had 2 cars. They accommodate 50 lol. It was very hot, and I did not see flamingos (best to see those in April-May). But the sheer expanse is exciting to see, and the edge of the world down there at Flamingo is fun--put your feet in the Strait of Florida!

First of all - please note that there are no flamingo (as birds) in Flamingo (as town name). As per locals they might fly by if you are very lucky. I did not see. Again if you are lucky you might see a croc, but not the flamingo )))
Second - there is no Verizon Wireless cellular service at all. I was trying to use EV charger which is on the parking lot, but as there is no cellular connection I was not able to initiate charging session. Pretty funny.

We camped in our camper here. They have full electrical connections and quite a lot of campsites. The hot showers we nice.
There is an area all along the coast where you can view birds and sunsets.
It is the southernmost section of the park.

The visitor center was undergoing renovations and seemed like it might have been a major overhaul that would take some time to complete. So the facilities are a bit lacking. Park over near the maria, not near the the visitor center side. There is a small store and a food truck at the marina. We got to see a huge osprey nest with some adorable baby osprey that were peeking out. Also near the marina, there was a big crocodile (not alligator). There were people taking out canoes or sea kayaks or something, but with the crocodiles in the water, that was not something I wanted to do.

If you have all day and will enjoy stopping along the way, go ahead and make the drive, especially if you want to see a crocodile because they live closer to the ocean whereas the alligators live in the more inland parts of the Everglades. But if you are short on time or want the best bang for your buck, I definitely would go to Anhinga Trail instead.

Had a nice visit. The store is well stocked - enjoyed some ice cream. Had been told we would see Manatees at the marina and we did see several that we relatively quite active towards dusk. Clean restrooms. Saw many turkey and black vultures and osprey. Couldn’t tell if the new visitors center is open yet.
