There isn’t a charge for the service – just tip your driver!

To request a ride, simply text 214-356-4490 with your name, how many people, where to where and what time you need the shuttle.

In the Lakefront district, there is always free, ample parking available at each restaurant. If you’re going to Little Elm Beach or Little Elm Park, parking is FREE Monday through Friday. Beginning Memorial Day Weekend, the Town of Little Elm charges a $10 per car parking fee on Saturdays, Sundays, and Memorial Day. This is through Labor Day and not a come-and-go pass.

A $25 seasonal parking pass is available to Little Elm Residents, while non-residents can purchase a season pass for $75. This pass is valid any time there are parking fees throughout the summer (with the exception of 4th of July). Passes can be purchased at the Little Elm Rec Center beginning Monday, May 20. Note that this is a parking fee, not a park or beach usage fee, so you have the option of parking outside of the park and walking in or utilizing efrogs. There is never a fee for using Little Elm Park and Little Elm Beach!


Lake Lewisville is a popular recreational lake for boating and the Town of Little Elm alone has over 65 miles of shoreline and a few points of entry for boaters. Cottonwood Creek Marina is located in a cove on the northeast shore of the lake. Upon arrival at the fuel dock or courtesy slips, you’ll find complimentary dock lines available and an awaiting staff member to assist you in securing your boat, with fueling and pump out operations.

Little Elm Park has a great boat dock and an incredible three lane concrete boat ramp. To use the Little Elm Park Boat Ramp, you can buy a daily pass for $10, or there are seasonal passes available to both residents and non-residents, both of which can be purchased using the kiosk at the boat ramp which is located at 1101 W. Eldorado Parkway (just west of the Little Elm Park entrance). There is also the option of pulling your boat right up Little Elm Beach!
