Everglades National Park
We departed the Miccosukee Casino (near Miami, Florida) at 6:50 a.m. After stopping at the Home Depot and Walmart to pick up a few items, we arrived at the Flamingo campground at 10:30 a.m.
We were unable to reserve a campsite with an electric hookup, so we were assigned campsite T-47 in the non-electric section in Loop T. There are 41 campsites with electric hookups in this loop and all of them are by reservation only. All of the non-electric campsites are first-come-first-serve.
During the night a severe thunderstorm, with strong, gusty winds, raced through the area. We were thankful we had not extended our awning on the trailer when we set up camp. Our trusty Casita trailer kept us safe and secure throughout the duration of the thunder, lightening and fierce winds.
