“Lots of Activities and Close to everything!”

We like this park because it it's the closest to our family, and home base. We decided that being full time RVers this will be the best place for or winter stop. The park is a county park with trails, Mountain Bike trails, water sports, boat ramp, Large Dog Park, planetarium, and a shooting range. There are over 10 loops of camping sites, back in and pull-throughs, with water, electric, and sewer. The WiFi is the best we had yet in any campground we have been.
If you like birds, this place is for you! This park is very close to the Everglades, Big Cypress, and other nature places if that is what you like. Plenty of hiking, and biking! Shopping is plentiful, with Sawgrass Mall only 5 miles away, restaurants, and nightlife.
The only one downside is the noise, we found the jet skies driving up and down the canal was a little annoying. Also the campsites in the back of the park from the letter "F" up have to deal with the sounds of gunfire from the shooting range from early to late hours. Our first year we made the mistake to stay in Letter K, this year in D2 was a lot better. Some issues with getting reception on SirusXM radio, DISH satellite was okay. Bathrooms are clean, and showers are good. We will be back in November.

“Awesome array of activities in a large county park with a lovely campground. And it makes an excellent base to visit Big Cypress National Preserve and the Everglades and Biscayne National Parks.”

We booked nine days at Markham Park after reading blog posts and reviews. We were very happy with our choice. The office staff was very helpful and friendly. We had a large space, E-6, with a paved pad that backed up to the canal. Note: most of the sites are not paved, but are either gravel or grass. The size and quality vary somewhat, but there are large shade trees throughout and sites are level. RV sites have full hookups with a fire ring and picnic table and there is a primitive camping/tenting area.

Markham offers an amazing array of activities: Mountain bike trails, paved multi-use path, boat ramps, disc golf course, model airplane field, radio controlled 4-wheeler course, observatory, playgrounds, picnic shelters, sports courts, archery and target ranges, and Barkham at Markham - one of the nicest dog parks I’ve ever seen! Whew! The only downside to all the great activities is the attendant noise – nothing lasts late into the night, but be aware you’ll hear activity on the gun range and during the day the personal watercraft buzz up and down the canal.

Markham also makes a great base to explore the area. It’s about an hour to Shark Valley Visitor Center in Everglades National Park (great 15-mile paved bike trail through the Everglades – we counted 89 alligators on our ride!); about an hour and a half to the Biscayne National Park (we enjoyed the boat ride to Boca Chita Key); and about 2 hours to Big Cypress National Preserve (lots of excellent kayaking, we did about 4 hours on the Turner River Canoe Trail).

We had 3 bars of Verizon 4G unboosted. The park also has free WiFi which worked intermittently.
