Everglades – Florida

Boasting 1.5 million acres of diverse beauty and intrigue, Everglades National Park is a paddler’s paradise! Paddle your boat thru the ancient mangrove forests and barrier islands to reach the Gulf of Mexico and primitive backcountry campsites on spectacular white powdered sugar sand beaches. Walk the rugged coast, examine marine life, study the tropical coastal ecosystem, find a Gumbo Limbo Tree hidden in the forest or pick up a conch shell on the endless beach of Pavilion Key. Campsites are beach sites or elevated camping platforms.
