Everglades National Park

Entry Sign...
The first thing you should know about Everglades National Park, comes from the book, The Complete Guide to America's National Parks.

"Mosquitoes and other biting insects make camping and backcountry use during the summer rainy season virtually unbearable by all but the most dedicated outdoors person."

I was there in late October and still got bit by a 'skeeter, and that was during the West Nile scare. With Zika around, this place makes me itch just thinking about it.

The second thing to know, is this place is a swamp. A big one. A million and half acres, and none of it is more than 8 feet above sea level, and some it is sea level. Back to Top
