    Everglades Backcountry Camping By Boat - 23 Jul, 2019

    Looking to plan a trip this winter taking 2 boats down to ENP.  Looking online it mentions that the Chickees on the water are a 1 night maximum?
    Does this mean I would have to go back to NPS headquarters the next day to get a new site?  Seems counterproductive as the ride to some of these are 15+ miles.  Possible that one party (the other boat gets Thursday night) and I get (friday night)?

    Worst case we will do a ground site that allows 2 nights but I know of people that do 2 nights during peak season with no issues.   We were planning on going for Everglades City (north side).  Any insight on reservations and chickees is much appreciated.
