Looking for Campground on Alligator Alley

We're heading to the Florida Keys on December 26th and are looking for a place to overnight east of Naples to near where I75 ends.

There are quite a few campgrounds that you cannot reserve a site, but we prefer to be able to reserve a site so that we can be sure to have a place to stay.

On the east end of Alligator Alley, just off I-75, there's a nice little campground in Markham Park, a public campground owned and managed by Broward County Parks and Recreation. It's $40 per night for non-residents ($30 for residents).

Here's a link: Markham Park

A little bit farther south on I-75, just before you exit for the Turnpike to the Keys, is C.B. Smith Park, another Broward County park with a campground. Exit I-75 at Pines Blvd.

Here's a link to that campground: C.B. Smith Park

Those two parks look like they were made to order for your trip.

Not far off the end of 75 is Yacht Haven Park & Marina in Ft. Lauderdale

Not many campgrounds on I-75. The alley is a limited access high speed highway to Ft. Lauderdale. I would suggest US-41. The Old Tamimia Trail. The National Park service has a number of campsite along the trail. I believe you might be able to reserve them. Also there is an indian casio at the corner of US-41 and FSR 997. Plenty of parking(no facilities) and if you go into the casino and get a casion card, they award $15 in casino credit and a buy/one get one buffet. We had a blast. DW won $63.50.
Take care, enjoy you time in Florida.

Markham park is just off I-75 in Weston and will be the most convenient for your purposes. I stay there all the time and it is quiet at night. CB Smith is in Pembroke Pines and only a few miles off I75 but you can hear the city noises at night. Both are well maintained and roomy with 50 amps of clean power and full hook ups.

Closer to Naples you can find Collier Seminole State Park, probably already booked for the end of December. Our blog entry about our trip there last January here.
