Beach camping in South Florida
Posted January 10th, 2013 - 7:10 am by from Fort Lauderdale, United States (Permalink)
Hello!!! I was wondering if you know of any good beach camping spots in the SF area. I recently moved here and really want to spend the night camping around the beach, listening to the waves.
Thanks for your suggestions! Much appreciated!

Long Key State Park has camp sites right on the beach.
You must reserve sites way in advance. Site 15 is the closest to the bathrooms.

Primitive beach campsites include Cape Sable, Middle Cape, and Northwest Cape in Everglades National Park (only accessible by boat or kayak), or the Alligator Creek campsite (also in everglades national park), which is only accessible by kayak. Be aware that if you camp at Alligator Creek there is a 90% probability that you will wake up with large alligators tanning around your tent... just a heads up. It's a beautiful paddle out to that campsite.

There are also primitive "chickee" campsites all throughout Everglades National Park... these are man-made structures in the middle of Florida Bay, Whitewater Bay, etc.

There is no real primitive camping in the keys. Everglades National Park is your best bet.

Hope that helps,

-Dave
