"Hey all... it's been awhile. I'm looking to get back into summer paddling ENP. Anyone know what the summer campsite rules are now that ENP is on Recreation.gov?  Thanks Chris"

"Agreed. This seems like one of those things set up by someone who has never camped in the backcountry but likes to know that they can now fit it into their busy schedules. Pfffft!"

New reservation system.

ENP has a new online reservation system this year.  Personally, I find it not a good idea given trip routes can’t be realistically planned so far in advance safely without current weather information. If you do plan your trip and book a site, you will lose all your money if you were to cancel.  This then does not give most people a reason to cancel and keeps those sites showing as booked.

Hi Viv just saw the request. I don't get on here as often as I would like. You guys got anything planed for the summer? Anytime you need  guide out to Tarpon lake let me know. I would be glad to go. This season the area at mm63 is going to be closed for 14 months and it looks like David and I will shift most of our hike to come in from the interceptor canal. Some really nice areas once you get past Looneyville. Say Hi to Connie for me. ---Regards Larry ----
