Explore the most popular trails in Tomoka State Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

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.

Not really a hike, just a walk through the park. The trail starts outside Tomoka State Park as the Woodham Woods Trail, which is paved all the way to the park entrance (about a mile) where it crosses over a road. From that point, you're basically following the main park road all the way to the north end of park where Chief Tomoka's statue is. It's really not a bad walk, and you might run into a few deer like I did, but if you're looking for an even mild wilderness adventure this isn't it.

Not a hike or even a trail. It's the dirt road the circles through the campground. All you're likely to see are people with their tents or RVs, and some kids riding their bikes. So if you're looking for a place to camp with electrical hookups, restrooms, and it looked like showers, this is it. Maybe even as a base camp for a trip to the beach, but not a hiking trail.

The trail starts outside tomoka state park, but then enters the state park. There is a entry fee per person walking in to the park ($2). There are a lot of small side paths to explore within the park

Decent walk. Brought my poles along with me with foot attachments helped with the pavement. Sadly it was 2 dollars for walking pedestrians and bikes, but overall it was a decent semi long walk. Wouldn’t consider this a hike however. Interesting points along the way. Kinda sucked how after paying two dollars I still had to watch out for cars on my side walking on the dirt road throughout the campground. Still something to do however

This is a nice state park, which is very close to Ormond Beach. Here, many trails fan out, which I hiked most of them. The main attraction of this park is the Tomoka River, which dumps into the Halifax. In addition, a visitor center, campground, and interpretive trail also exist. I would not want to camp in FL (the heat and bugs), but nevertheless, it is a nice campground. From here, two trails connect to Ormond: the service maintenance road and the extended sidewalk. In addition, the Tomoka bridge provides a place to fish and look for manatees.
