Not Nice Camp Hosts
We pulled in late and the only info on the window was which site we were in. Sites were plenty big and easy to get in and out of. There is water and a dump in T loop. We were told when we made reservations that the electric sites were all full. We were supposed to be there 4 nights. There were electric sites that were empty every night. But they would not let us move. It was very warm and the first 3 night we ran the generator until 9 pm trying to cool it down. And started it back up around 730 in the mornings while we got ready for the day. On the 4th night a very rude camp host came by to inform us that quiet time was 8 pm to 8 pm. We asked to extend because of the heat (still in the 80s). Absolutely no flexibility. And very rude came back at 8 just to make sure. At which time we informed them we were leaving. They sat and watched us preparing to go just to make sure we did. No apologies at all. The previous 3 nights there were generators that ran on and off all night.

Big Open Sites
Senior discount non electric site was $18. Nice quiet remote; park service now contracts with new concierge. There was nice person to ck in and also can pay at marina. Tent campers can camp with full view of water. Two large camp areas are not maintained (not mown) so not available at this time but still plenty of sites; with electric ($30) a night; no electric are $20 and senior can get 10 percent discount. Downside is ck in not until 3 and ck Out is early 10 a. m. Easy pull through for large rigs. Camp store nearby open late and well stocked. Only phone service is at &t and consumer cellular. Boat tours daily at nearby marina. It was cool and windy during our stay so bugs no problem.Don’t miss hiking the paths at Royal Palms—you WILL see alligators!

Could Be Very Nice If....
Trailer loop is a large well organised campground area with big pull-thrus and power to most sites. Choose a site and fill in the registration and take it back to the unmanned booth slot pedestal with your cash all the while trying to escape from the mosquitoes. Other loops had not a camper when we were there in early December. There is potable water available, restrooms and a dump station oh and hungry hoardes of mosquitoes that could put a lot of people off staying longer than necessary. There was a lot of water about this winter so less animals to be seen, but we saw 4 alligators and a few birds and a turtle from the main trails and an egret or two from the road in.

Can't even give my honest opinion. I've been calling all week. No one answers the phone.

The campground had a very depressed feeling. It had rained so most sites were flooded. There was no host there for both days (Tuesday, Wednesday), no maps available, and really awful signage so finding a site was difficult. The park is huge, but we found it difficult to figure out what to do. The visitors center at Flamingo was a bit run down, and had little information. The Rangers were nice, but not overly interested in sharing. I felt like I was bothering them, asking about what to do and see. We had pretty high expectations, so were a little disappointed. Plus mosquitos were really aggressive.
