I can handle the Octogenarians lol it is the mosquitoes you've got me worried about now! I'm a big DEET fan and that will help. At least it's the dry season - could be worse!

Availability looks good for the tenters in the interior. I think I'll make it work!

I just looked at Midway ( Big Cypress) in recreation.gov and see that pretty much all the tent sites are available for all of Feb.


And for good reason. Just think about staying in a tent next to 26 Octogenarians in RV's, who move to a different site every 10 days skirting around the max stay policy.


Sounds to me like your jealous!

Now that I made my reservations (got one of the last 2 tent sites at Burns Lake in Big Cypress for those dates, and also got a site at Flamingo in Everglades (the website didn't tell me how many were left) I'm set. Not everybody loves swamps I guess!

Now I get to obsess about the foolishness of sleeping in a thin tent just a few feet from gator-infested Burns Lake! Wish me luck!

Flamingo is anything but a swamp, more like a very large grass parking lot.

But it is surrounded by 10s of 1000s of acres of mostly wet - if not technically swamp then still not the beaches and sun and sand that most people seek. Only reason these sites were still available on 10 days notice.

Check the Reserve America site for Collier Seminole State Park, which is in the Big Cypress but not far from Marco Island/Naples. I'm sure they have availability for tents. I know there's a washer and dryer there, I think showers, too. Good luck.
