Florida | Wilderness Camping in the Everglades.

The Everglades of Florida offer up some interesting possibilities for outdoor experiences.
Most people however, aren’t aware that you can spend a few days in the wilderness areas of the Everglades here and camp, hike or just enjoy the wildlife.

The best time for camping in the Everglades of course is fall and winter, however some people want to camp in the summertime, which presents a few challenges of its own in the Everglades region of Florida.

Camping in the Everglades is a challenge at any time, but is well worth your time to undertake the trip planning. During the summer time, Everglades National Park might get up to about eighty percent of the rainfall that they get for the entire year.

Navigation in the Everglades isn’t always as simple and straight forward as it seems, and the passageways can begin to look the same after a time. Lined as they all are with the mangroves and hanging plants, they can, after a time begin to...
