Elliott Key is one of Biscayne
National Park’s two walk-up only campgrounds. It’s the biggest island in the park, and has two hiking trails, one that runs six miles down the length of the island and another which loops for one mile by the harbor. The campground is on the bay side of the island, with sites in the grassy area by the water and under the forested canopy. Unlike Boca Chita Key, this island has restrooms with sinks and cold water showers, as well as drinking water--but it’s recommended you bring your own as well, in case the generator breaks. There are no concessions of any kind on Elliott Key, so don’t forget island essentials like sunscreen and bug spray.
