Chickee Camping!

Chickees, Seminole for "thatched roof," are one of the coolest features of the national park. There are several of these available along the Wilderness Waterway (this one is at marker 99) located on the inside (non-Gulf side of the islands).

Chickees are raised platforms that provide camping…

  • Random abandoned fishing camp along the Wilderness Waterway
  • Vultures...maybe we looked appetizing
  • Morning on the chickee. It was winter so we were tent free.
