Everglades Campground Behind Schedule
A road paving project at Everglades National Park has prompted the delay, until mid-December, of Long Pine Key Campground's opening for the season.
It was previously announced that the campground would reopen on Nov. 15, however that is now being delayed by about a month. In the interim, those desiring to camp will be able to utilize the Flamingo Campground instead, National Parks Traveler reported.
“We wanted to give a heads up to the park’s visitors that paving work is to begin next week in Flamingo campground A Loop and will move to the Long Pine Key Campground on Nov. 25. The Long Pine Key Campground will remain closed until the paving is completed, or no later than Dec 20,” said Everglades Superintendent Dan Kimball.
