 About Tomoka State Park

Campsite in the woods.


Phil Rand

Whether you are camping, hiking or boating, Tomoka State Park offers the right place to get together with friends or family and take that photo of a lifetime. The Oak Pavilion Area has a volley ball court, pavilion for picnicking and a view of the Tomoka River. Fall is here, it's the perfect time for kayaking and canoeing the Tomoka River and its serene basin backwaters. Bring a fishing rod and a picnic lunch to get away to a quiet and nature filled afternoon. For local visitors the park has many opportunities to volunteer, please contact the park office is you are interested.
