Enjoying a beautiful location at the confluence of two rivers in the state of Florida, Tomoka State Park offers extraordinary landscapes and a variety of on-land and on-water activities. The 900-acre park is the quiet place where you can come to enjoy the outdoors and watch the starry sky after it gets dark.
If you ever dreamed of camping where Native Americans once lived, then the Tomoka State Park is the perfect choice for you. Discover scenic estuaries and live oak hammocks filled with wildlife protected habitats and species that are facing extinction. One of them is the West Indian manatee also known as "sea cow".
The Tomoka State Park is home to over 160 bird species. If you love observing rare species of birds in their natural habitat, then this place must be on your list, especially during spring and fall migrations. The park is open 356 days a year and the admission fee is $5 per car, as long as there is a maximum of eight people in the vehicle. It's $2 if you're walking or bicycling your way to the park.
Furthermore, the camping fee is $24 per night plus tax and it includes running water and electricity. Note: there is a $6.70 non-refundable reservation fee. Tomoka State Park is a pet-friendly place, so feel free to bring Fido for a well-deserved relaxation time outdoors. As an owner, you are required to keep your furry friend on a leash and always clean up the mess after your dog.
There are special places around the park where you can dispose of the waste bags. It's essential to know that your dog is not allowed on the beaches or playgrounds, bathing areas or cabins. Tomoka State Park promises to offer both you and your dog an amazing outdoor experience, filled with fun adventures and plenty of relaxation time!
