We really loved this little campground. We had a great site right next to a pond with a nice shade tree and close to the bathhouse. The owners/operators were really nice and helpful. The wi-fi worked all the time up by the office, and we had pretty good reception at our site most of the time. In fact, we were able to watch Hulu and Netflix on our computers without interruption the nights we were there. The campground is in a fantastic area---very beautiful with a lot to do. Saw many, many alligators. Many seasonals, but they were all super friendly and helpful, too. It was quiet at night. Bathhouse is adequate; the showers were hot and free. Don't expect luxury here. Just expect to be greeted with a smile, to see some amazing sights, and to have a camping experience in a real "old timey" type Florida campground. Be sure to stock up on food supplies before you go in. Shopping choices are VERY limited in Everglades City, and you will have to drive to Naples to do any real shopping. There are a number of restaurants in town, however. We are planning to go back next year and explore the area more, and we are planning to stay at this cool little campground. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is a basic campground in a terrific area. The Pole Boat Tour is a real gem, as is the Reptile and Bird area in the park. We enjoyed both immensely. I'd rate it higher, but it's a tired spot. The dumpster was never emptied in our five days here. There is no water available at the dump station, which was a great surprise. We would come back, however, since the area is so beautiful. All of the staff were friendly and most helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Located in the Everglades and they have a small collection of snakes and gators. Adequate security for guest access only. Nice people who were friendly and helpful. I could not connect to their Wi-Fi but did not expect to. No sewer hook up but a dump-site. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The CG is near Ochopee which is also very close to Everglades City. The City is a quaint town and we've enjoyed going along the river banks and trying the restaurants. Air boat rides etc., in town but the CG says the Indian operators are better and cheaper. It's a "quaint" CG but we like it. If you're in for pristine KOA style, nah. But it is clean, has some permanents, but all the folks and management have been super. The glades are right out the window, there are a couple of small lakes on the grounds and we saw a small alligator in one. They have a reptile exhibit that is nicely done: the caretaker is very informative. It's April 14 and no bugs. Has good WiFi; 30 amp with water; and there is a dump station on premises. $27 so it's more expensive that the gov't places, but I've got a thing about helping small businesses. BTW, in Eliz City there is a new "Motor Coach Resort" with a cost over $100 in the off season. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I happened to stop here looking for a camp with power as I had been dry camping at Mitchell Landing and needed power to run my air conditioner. Guy at office was very pleasant and had me booked in quickly. There are two small lakes and most sites are waterfront. Kind of rustic looking but clean and neat. Wi-Fi was good but slow at times. Don't forget: you're in the middle of nowhere so any Wi-Fi was great. It was quiet and is gated for security. I'm still here and may stay one more day. Ask about the "Skunk Ape" or check out the website. We camped here in a Motorhome.
