South Florida National Parks Trust

“There are no other Everglades in the world. They are, they have always been, one of the unique regions of the earth, remote, never wholly known. Nothing anywhere else is like them….”
– Marjory Stoneman Douglas, The Everglades: River of Grass, 1947


Our Parks

Four of our nation’s most spectacular national parks are located in South Florida. To plan a trip or visit the parks online, click on the links below:

Everglades National Park
A vast “river of grass” flows through the heart of South Florida, refreshing the landscape, replenishing the water supply and providing sanctuary for an abundance of wildlife.
Biscayne National Park
Biscayne Bay puts the wonder of underwater life on Miami’s doorstep. Biscayne National Park invites us to explore a world of turquoise waters, secluded islands and vibrant coral reefs.
Dry Tortugas National Park
History and Nature meet at the Dry Tortugas, a cluster of islands in the Florida Keys where turtles swim in the shadow of Fort Jefferson, the largest 19th century coastal fort in the nation.
Big Cypress National Preserve
Home to the Florida Panther and other endangered species, the Big Cypress National Preserve protects a vast stretch of the Big Cypress Swamp along the historic Tamiami Trail between Miami and Naples.
