What a great place! It was so beautiful and interesting. After a visit to the welcome center, and a great chat with one of the desk people, we decided to come back on our way from Key West. If you make reservations, must be done 14days in advance, you can take a canoe trip through the Everglades with a guide from the National Forest Service. Also, there is a guided swamp walk available. Sounds VERY cool to me. We arrived at the park around 2pm and were able to obtain a campsite at the Midway campground. This was only $10 with the discount offered with the golden age/golden access passport. This was a refurbished campground and was really very nice. Landscaped and with electric. If this place had full hook-ups it would be quite the place. Even with just electric it was quite and quaint. We will try to get in here again upon our return. Checkout is 12:00 so if we keep our timing right we should be able to do it.
