Here is a list of locations and links where we’ve stayed.

Everglades National Park
We stayed at both the Long Pine Key, which is a first-come-first-served campground, with no hookups, great semi private sites and good water, and the place we liked the best, and Flamingo, which has electrical sites, and no hookup sites. Flamingo sites can be reserved through www.recreation.gov , your site will be assigned when you arrive. Flamingo has good showers, a marina to rent boats and kayaks, and a restaurant/grill. We were advised in February 2014 that things would be changing later in the year/2015, so check with them.  The link to the Everglades NP is http://www.nps.gov/ever/index.htm. Places to see?
Anhinga Trail
Mahogany Hammock
Eco Pond
