One of the most popular campgrounds in the Everglades, the Long Pine Key Campground is located seven miles (11 km) from the main entrance, just off the main road. It has 108 drive-up sites for tents and RVs, including one group site. With a picnic area nearby (complete with restrooms but no showers), the site also features a pond for fishing, an amphitheater for programs during the winter and several hiking and bicycling trails.

Long Pine Key features more than 22 miles (35 km) of connecting trails, with many trails beginning at Long Pine Key Campground. The pinelands are the most diverse habitat in Everglades National Park, consisting of an open south Florida slash pine forest with an understory of saw palmetto and more than 200 species of subtropical plants.

The pinelands are also one of the last refuges for the Florida panther.  While many sections of the trail system are not suitable for hiking during the summer because of excessive mosquitoes and mud, the Old Ingraham Highway is a good alternative as it offers year-round access and is ideal for extended hikes and bike trips. Be prepared, though—if you want to hike or bike the entire road, it’s a 22 mile (35 km round trip).
