The Coastal Prairie Trail is near the Flamingo Visitor Center in Everglades National Park. This hike is good for kids. The park says "step back in time as you walk this old road once used by cotton pickers and fishermen. Open prairies of succulent coastal plants dotted with shady buttonwoods surround you as you journey towards the shore of Florida Bay. The trail ends at Clubhouse Beach; a permit for backcountry camping required." There is camping available in Everglades National Park. The Long Pine Key Campground and the Flamingo Campground can accommodate both tents and RV's.
