There are two islands in Biscayne National Park which have Camping Facilities and a Harbor with Docks for boats to dock at. Both are popular Winter Destinations, but the Mosquitoes and No-See-ums make them Ghost towns during the Summer months. Information by SoFla David

This is a fun spot to boat to. During the weekends you can find dozens of boats anchored there. The depth is typically between 5-10ft, so people just hang out, blast their marine stereos, and play in the water. There's even a barge raft that floats around selling hot dogs and drinks. They deliver to your boat via inflatable canoe. How cool is that?! By Marcos R. Miami Florida
