How Do I Reserve Harbor Park?
Call or stop by City Hall or the Harbormaster’s office and pick up a Harbor Park Reservation application.
The Harbormaster will let you know if your requested date is available and will go over the requirements for using the park with you.
There is generally no charge for park use during regular Harbor hours, however, after regular hours, groups of 50 people or more or groups needing restroom facilities and/or electricity will be charged $30 per hour (with a two hour minimum), in order to cover the costs of after hours oversight.
How Do I Get a Mooring in Ellsworth Harbor?
Call or stop by the Harbormaster’s office and pick up a waiting list application.
All waiting lists are updated in the spring. To remain on the list you must fill out an application every year.
When an appropriately sized spot becomes available, we will notify you and send you a MOORING application.
The City will rent you the spot, the Harbormaster will assign a location for you.
You will then need to buy or build a mooring to City specifications and be responsible for setting and maintaining it.
