As home to fish-bejeweled coral reefs, emerald islands and beautiful aquamarine waters, Biscayne National Park is a scenic destination for nature lovers. Covered by 95% water, this national park located in Homestead, Florida, offers excellent opportunities to enjoy water-related pursuits and other recreational activities. It is no wonder that the park is dubbed a “watery wonderland”.
As you visit the park, prepare to enjoy boating, canoeing and kayaking on the park’s waters where you’ll get to see the beautiful marine life in the creeks and bay waters. Fishing is also open to all who enjoy the activity. If you came with your binoculars, then you should not miss out on the exciting bird watching opportunities the park offers. The mangroves in the park are also a sight to behold. Besides all these, guided tours can offer you even more in the park.
There are no RV camping options at and near Biscayne National Park as primitive island camping is the only available in-camp option. Access to the two campgrounds in the park is by boat. You may wish to, however, visit and relax at the Visitor Center in the park.
Biscayne National Park was established in 1980.
