“Lake Monroe Park is in DeBary, not Deland, and a Great Place to Spend the Day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

Lake Monroe Park is a real gem. Whether you’re a camper, hiker, fisherman, cyclist, day tripper or boater, this park has it all and at extremely reasonable prices. Its open sunrise to sunset and the closing time is posted as you come in the guard gate (changes with the sundown). Entrance fee is $2.00. Volusia County spent over a million dollars adding picnic areas, pavilions, restrooms, floating docks and two very nice double-wide boat launching ramps. This park is situated in a tranquil bay that makes launching a breeze; we launch our 24’ boat easily. The bay opens to the St. John’s River. To the right you head north under Highway 17; to the left you head south into Lake Monroe under I-4. If you’re launching on the weekend get there before 10:00 a.m. because, while there is ample parking, this park fills up fast. The park itself has clean new playgrounds, restrooms, picnic and grilling areas with access to the Lake Monroe-Gemini Springs trail, an outstanding boardwalk and paved bike/ped trail that winds through the DeBary Bayou. Camping for RV and tents is also available at around $22.00. An outstanding facility for the whole family.
