Wednesday – February 27, 2013
We departed the Long Pine Key Campground at 10:25 a.m., traveling southwest through the very scenic Everglades National Park. We arrived at the Flamingo Campground at 11:10 a.m. We had previously made reservations for an electric site here and were assigned campsite #4 upon our arrival. This is an end site and is the first site on the second row. It is a very spacious site with several shade trees. We will definitely request this site on our future visits. It will be very nice to have an electric hookup for our seven nights stay here.
The Flamingo campground is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Gulf of Mexico on the west. Boat access to both oceans is through the Florida Bay, located at the southern tip of the Everglades National Park. Non-electric tent, trailer or RV camping is available in camping Loops A, B and C. Electric and non-electric trailer or RV camping is available in Loop T. Non-electric Walk-In camping is available on the beachfront area by the Florida Bay.
Loops A and B campgrounds have restrooms with flush toilets and solar powered warm water showers. Loops C and T campgrounds have restrooms with flush toilets and cold water showers.
Camping Fee: $15.00 per night with our Golden Age Passport.
Total miles traveled today: 36
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
