The movie starts out with a view of Porky’s exterior. This was a set built in Oleta River State Park, North Miami, Fl. This was based on a real club that had existed in Ft. Lauderdale Florida on US 1 north of Oakland Park Blvd. Now a Pet Supermarket is located on the former site.
Then we cut to Peewee’s house where it is morning and he is rising. Filming location unknown.
Location of original Porky’s. This real life location was not used in the movie despite reports on some web sites.
Which leads us to Angel Beach High School. This was filmed on location in Miami Beach at 1424 Drexel Ave., Ida Fisher School. The cars come southbound down Drexel Avenue past a favorite filming location for both Miami Vice and Burn Notice (at Espanola Way). Then they pull into a now gone parking lot. A rare case when a parking lot has gone away and not been created on a location.
Then we go inside the gym. This has been reported to have been filmed at Miami Senior High School. 2450 SW 1st Street, Miami. I have not been there yet to confirm this myself but is seems to match.
500 14th Street is seen in the background.
Looking north up Drexel from just above 14th Street.
Then we see the locker room. This appears to have been filmed at Miami Sr. High School but I have not confirmed this yet.
Which leads us to the first shower scene. The exterior was filmed on location at Miami Sr. High School, not on Miami Beach as some have reported. The interior may also have been filmed on location or on set. Location unsure.
Then we go out into the Everglades to a small shack to visit Cherry Forever. There are conflicting reports as to where this was filmed and not enough is seen to confirm the location. This was reportedly filmed at either Oleta River State Park in North Miami or Greynolds Park which is nearby. I have not tracked down the exact location of the shack but it was reportedly in one of these two parks.
Pee Wee takes off on foot. Location unknown but a street with street lights.
Then we cut to Deadbeats. This was filmed on location on Hollywood Beach. Filmed at 310 N Broadwalk, Arizona Street and the Broadwalk.
Next we return to Ida Fisher School. This was filmed on Drexel Avenue, Miami Beach.
Then we see the boys drive by the Sheriff's office on the way to Porky’s. This looks like it was filmed in Oleta River State Park by the Porky’s set but I have not confirmed the location 100%. Below on an old aerial picture I have indicated the most likely location for this set based on everything seen throughout the movie.
Then we go inside, for this we have moved back over to Miami, to Miami Sr. High School. 2450 SW 1st Street.
Then the boys arrive on the exterior of Porky’s. This was filmed on set built in Oleta River State Park.
Then they go inside. For this we move south to the 79th Street Causeway in Miami Beach. To Jilly’s, which we first saw on film in the Frank Sinatra movie, Lady In Cement.

Then they drop thru the trap door and we are back at Oleta River State Park for the exterior filming.
After their misadventure at Porky’s we see the guys at Deadbeats, filmed on location at 310 N. Broadwalk, Hollywood Beach.
Then we go back to the gym. Filmed on location at Miami Sr. High School.
Then we go into the locker room. Likely filmed at Miami Sr. High School but possibly a set. Location unconfirmed.
Then we head outside to fight. For the filming of this exterior scene we have returned to Ida Fisher School in Miami Beach.
Then we return to Deadbeats, filmed on location at 310 N Broadwalk Hollywood, Fl.
