Summer is here and it's a great time to be on the water in your boat. You can also rent a canoe or kayak from us. Bring plenty of sunscreen and keep an eye out for afternoon thunderstorms. Make sure you take plenty of fluids to keep yourself hydrated. Campers should be prepared for biting insects. A little forethought and preparation can make your stay much more enjoyable.
- Benny Woodham, Park Manager
Native Americans once dwelled here, living off fish-filled lagoons. Today, these waters are popular for canoeing, boating, and fishing. The park protects a variety of wildlife habitats and endangered species, such as the West Indian manatee. Tomoka is a bird-watcher's paradise, with over 160 species sighted, especially during the spring and fall migrations. Visitors can stroll a one-half mile nature trail through a hardwood hammock that was once an indigo field for an 18th century British landowner. A boat ramp gives boaters and canoeists access to the river. The Park Store offers snacks, camping supplies, and canoe rentals. Contact 386-673-0022 for more information. For overnight stays, the park has full-facility campsites and youth camping. Located three miles north of Ormond Beach on North Beach Street
A boat ramp is located in the park allowing access to the Tomoka River and it’s surrounding tributaries. All of the waters in the vicinity of the park are a designated manatee sanctuary.
