Miami Everglades Resort has some of the nicest, on-sight recreation options of any park we have been to. I really liked it here, Trail was less enthusiastic, but it’s the only park we have booked twice in our travels; once going south, and again on our way north.

- Attractive Park Environment
- Difficult to maneuver into some sites
If you read my reviews, you may know I like miniature golf. I am here to tell you that Miami Everglades has the nicest miniature golf course at an RV park that I have yet encountered. It is pretty much a picture perfect 18 holes of well-maintained putting pleasure. In case you were wondering, I bested Trail by 3 strokes on the course. Their Shuffle Board and other outdoor sports facilities are likewise top of the line and immaculately maintained. The pool is great too, so if you like to spend your park time out in the sun, this is a fantastic park.
The parking spots themselves are something of a mixed blessing. I enjoyed all the greenery and copious shade offered by the many lovely trees. Trail was annoyed with all the leaf litter on our site that was not cleaned up by park staff. The trees and relatively small parking areas also made for some challenges getting in and out of our space. The hookup for the sewer was high compared to the spot for parking making it difficult to drain our tanks on leaving the park. The greenery also has the advantage of attracting a lot of wildlife. The park has a lot of lizards on the property that you can find scuttling around keeping the bug populations well in check. There are also many birds including a pair of ibis wandering the grounds.
The only disappointment is that the wireless is pay to play. This tends to mean you get better service but given the prices of parks in Florida, it feels excessive to have paid wireless when other parks which charge less for rent offer it free.
While the price is not low by national standards, Miami Everglades Resort was less expensive than parks to the north and south of us. It is located close to Miami and Everglades park, making it a great base for lots of different adventures. By Florida standards, it is a very good value. Compared to the rest of the country it is very expensive. I give it a solid recommendation.
