Here are some of the best campsites that Miami has to offer:
Everglades National Park
Are you in for chills? This epic campsite will definitely be for those who are not afraid to delve into wilderness! The semi tropical weather granted the area with a diversity of wild animals such as the great bald eagle, white-tailed deer and, most importantly, the Florida alligator! This is one of the few places where the alligators and crocodiles can be spotted living next to one another. As if the thought of one or the other is not enough to give us the chills. The EverGlades National Park is also blessed with saltwater marshes, sawgrass prairies and hardwood hammocks. The price is quite reasonable- $20 per site and $30 includes electrical hookups.

Biscayne National Park
Are you a fan of non-traditional camping? If so then, this one will prove to be interesting for you! You won’t just need a tent and tarps for this one but you will have to get a boat!
