We took our rods & reels and set out to just enjoy the beautiful scenery. We were not really there to fish, but to just enjoy the beauty of the river and landscape. We did catch a few fish but released them. If you're in the Ormond Beach area a visit to Tomoka State Park is worth the effort.

Everyone should take the drive though Tomoka park. I didn't go into the actual park but drove around it. It's about 15 miles or so going north along the river. Then cross over back to A1A and drive back down the coast. There is a park call Dillow park that has a huge oak tree protected. You should stop there... More

You can walk along the outer banks of Tomoka State Park and find hermit crabs all day long. They live in some of the most beautiful shells.

This is one of the fabulous estuary parks where Native Americans inhabited for thousands of years. Nestled beneath old twisted branches of oak trees and cedar, the area feels like it was years ago when the Timucua Indians inhabited there. Coquina rocks line the shoreline of the oyster reefs and bays. One can imagine a dugout driven by a hunter... More

Quaint "Old Florida" look. Roads and trails through Central Florida palmettos, palms and underbrush. Picnic grounds and boat ramps available. We weren't boating, so it wasn't particularly interesting. If you come to the area with a boat in tow, this is probably a good place to put in the water.

There is a lot of history in this area, And the park had a small museum that explains it well. The Rangers are very friendly, And keep a... More

We camp at Tomoka several times a year as it is close to our home in NSB. Sites are very Shady and some are very big. Several back up to the river but with probably 30 yards of foliage in between so you do have to walk through vegetation. Great biking and fishing. Close to Ormond Beach and city. Many... More

We have used the boat ramp several times in this park. It is easy to launch your boat or kayaks as the ramp is in a cove and out of the wind and current. The park is clean, restrooms are clean, rangers are very friendly.
