This is basically a boondocking campground with a bathroom and water is only available at a spigot beside the camp host site - parking areas are grass with a picnic table all located around a lake - half price with Senior America the Beautiful Pass - located near the Everglades National Park and within Big Cypress National Preserve ... more

“Perfect location to explore Big Cypress!”

We really enjoyed our time here! Stop and check in with the hosts, you’ll see the stop sign. . All the sites are spread out around the lake close but not encroaching. Since we have a window in the back, and a truck camper, we backed up to the lake edge. On the east side of the lake they allow you to park on the lakeside across the r... more

“Scenic Campground Next to Verizon Cell Tower”

Reviewed Jan 24, 2019

Performed an on-site visit to the Monument Lake Campground today. Many sites are big rig friendly with level ground and lake views. This is a dry camping experience with picnic tables and fire rings at each site. Flush and vault toilets are located on opposing sides of the lake. Verizon cell service was stellar with a download spee... more

“Excellent NPS campground”

Stayed during Trumps Shutdown, early January, 2019, so running-water toilet facilities were closed, so cannot comment. Did not use the vault toilet which was open. Otherwise park was quiet, . Beautiful. Clean. Camp host was still on-site and pleasant to speak with. All RV sites directly on the water or just across the camp road. ... more

“Poorly run, not secure”

Reviewed Dec 06, 2018

We have camped here several times with varying experiences, but this latest was the last. "Campground hosts" are nowhere to be found, and then don't care about enforcing campground rules. The "emergency number" posted at the grounds is an 800 number so out of date that it connected me to a telemarketing scam. (Really, checked the nu... more

“Terrific Campground just off the highway”

Reviewed Feb 11, 2018

Overall Rating

We arrived to find Monument Lake Campground just far enough off the highway to make the road noise almost nonexistent. The camp hosts were all extremely nice, personable, and took pride in their responsibilities. The campsites all afford a nice view of the lake, and some are right along the shoreline. There are two restrooms and both w... more

We pulled in today with no reservations and had no problem getting a site. We were warned to keep our dog on a leash due to the alligators. Well spaced sites with tables and fire rings.

We’d hoped to stay at Midway campground because it had hookups but they were full. So we continued to Monument Lake, part of Big Cypress National Preserve. Monument Lake has no hookups, no dump station (but you can use Midway’s) and the bathrooms are just vault toilets with no showers. But, it’s a small campground with campsites situat... more

This is a nice little campground surrounding a small lake right off of highway 41. There are several campgrounds in the area and many of them fill up quickly but Monument Lake usually has availability. Restrooms are cleans, the hosts are extremely friendly and spots are level all with lake views. They do have fresh water onsite if you ... more
