When you think of Florida, you may think of summer heat and crowded areas.
However, since Florida doesn’t have a “cold” season, outdoor activities are available all year. Flamingo Adventures in the Everglades are open year-round and provide the perfect place for you to escape.
Boat Rentals in Florida Everglades
There are single kayaks, double kayaks, and canoes available for rent at the Flamingo Visitor Center. If you would like something motorized, there is also the 20 ft. Sun Tracker Fishing Pontoon, 15 ft. and 17 ft. Carolina Skiff, and 15 ft. Sundance Skiff.
Side note: If you don’t want to get on the Florida water, you can rent bikes and explore the Everglades on land.
Camping in the Flamingo Campground
Have you found yourself googling, “camping near me”?
There is no better way to experience the Everglades then spending a night under the stars. The most accessible camping locations are the two drive-in locations Long Pine Key Campground and Flamingo Campground. Both sites can accommodate tents and RVs and offer a limited number of group sites.
Don’t forget about our newly-opened, luxury-glamping Eco-tents! Reservations for the Flamingo Campground, Long Pine Key Campground, and Eco-tents are available here and booking fast.
