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.

Another day of fishing. This time Tomoka State Park. Tomoka State Park is such a fun place to fish. The boat ramp is is easy for launching a hauling your boat. There's plenty of parking. I have a State of Florida park pass so it's a breeze going past the ranger station. Speaking of rhe Rangers. They're a great bunch... More

We've tent camped here a few times. I love that they've kept all the trees and scrub to give privacy from the other sites. Campground and restrooms are very clean. The camp store has very limited offerings, but has reasonably priced canoe and kayak rentals. Beach, restaurants, and grocery stores are within a 10-15 min drive.

This was a well kept park that you really want to bring your kayaks along to. Nestled in the trees nicely outside the main Daytona Beach area they even have a nice campground here. we enjoyed our time here and would go back again.
