Camp In A Chickee Hut Right On The Water In The Florida Everglades

Get out into nature this weekend and enjoy a unique experience right in the heart of the Everglades. Grab your tent and prepare yourself to spend the night in a simple chickee hut right over the water. Chickees are very basic structures, popular with outdoor adventurers who prefer a no-frills overnight stay that is raw with nature. In the Everglades, where the wild mangroves grow and the water levels in the wetlands are questionable, adventurers can stay in a chickee hut rather than find land to camp because the huts are raised off the ground. With simplicity and style, check out these chickee huts in Florida.
