The Everglades, Florida Part 2

Sightings like this are not uncommon at the Everglades in Florida and it would probably be wise to take guided tours, instead of venturing out on your own.

There are two campgrounds located in the Everglades National Park which you can find at the Chokoloskee Island Park and the Trail Lakes Campground which also has swamp cabins at your disposal.

Camping at the Chokoloskee Island Park is the most expensive one out of the two, but also more exclusive since it has only 22 sites for RVs and tents. The RV sites include electricity, sewage, water, and are suitable for TV reception and cost $49 per night, or $295 for the duration of a week.

Tent sites go for $39 per night, or $228 a week and you can expect to make free use of the paved launching ramp, find more then enough parking spaces, a clean, comfortable bath house, picnic tables, fishing and park information, and sheltered boat dockage.

The Trail Lakes Campground & Swamp Cabins offers 150 sites of which most are located at the lake. Amenities such as hot showers, ice, laundry facilities, picnic tables, covered picnic areas, electricity, concessions, and dump stations are all available.

The fees are very reasonable; you will pay only $20 per night, or $120 for a week, when you decide to pitch a tent. RVs pay $25 per night, or $150 for an entire week.

The Everglades as we know it, it actually only half of what it used to be. Over the past century, part of it was converted into farmland and urban areas. Due to the intrusion and invasion of the human species, many of the plant and animal species are about to disappear, along with their unique habitat.

Hopefully, we are not too late to preserve it and enjoy it for a long time to come!
