Description

The entrance at Elliott Key harbor is approximately 2 ½ feet at low tide. Low tide is calculated by adding three hours and twenty-five minutes to the low tide at Miami's Government Cut. High tide is calculated by adding two hours and twenty-eight minutes to the high tide at Government Cut.

Boats may dock at any one of the 36 slips.
Register at the kiosk by the harbor edge. Pets on a leash are permitted within the developed areas of Elliott Key. Pets may not be left unattended. Mosquitoes are found here year round. 

A group campsite with barbecue grills and picnic tables is located on the east side (ocean side) of the island, approximately a third of a mile walk from the harbor, and may be reserved by calling 305-230-1144 ext. 3071. A fire pit on the east side of the island next to the group campsite is the only location in the park where an open ground fire is permitted. There is no backcountry camping in the park.


Restrooms with cold water showers are available. Fresh drinking water is located outside of the restroom building. It is recommended that you bring your own fresh water, just in case the generator should go down.
There are no sales facilities.
