We had such a great experience! This campground is tucked away at the end of the island. We took a beautiful walk to the fishing pier and then out to the driftwood beach which was just incredible. A golf cart or bikes are a must if you want to visit the areas many restaurants, parks, natural, and historical sites. They do have adult bikes for rent and a great little store for those easily forgotten items. The site was well maintained when we arrived, everyone (and their pups) were friendly, and the bathrooms were warm and clean.
So let’s start with the sites. Intermingled rv, cabin, and primitive sites close enough to see the water. We RV camped while my mom and aunt set up tent in P3 ON the water. It was the best view and we sat out there both nights at their fire ring. There are lots of things to do if you want to hang with other campers like Chicken Poo Bingo? (We passed on that one lol) We did use the pool though and that area was so great. Corn hole, picnic tables with a huge fan, horseshoes, and more with two great pools and a jacuzzi open until 10pm. The store and staff were great and the bathrooms/showers clean and well kept! With close proximity to several springs, we’ll definitely return.
We LOVE Tomoka State Park. As locals, we often ride “The Loop” and swing through the park for boiled peanuts with an ice cold beer with the Cornelius family or to launch the boat at their famous Tomoka Outpost. Camping there was an even better experience. Each site has natural barriers between them and there are so many amazing views to enjoy. Walk to see Chief Tomokie or just sit on the riverbank to fish and watch the sunset…it’s all beautiful. You won’t be disappointed.
So the layout is basically one small dirt road loop with rv parking/primitive camping around the center as well as cabins around the outside. It was quiet when we were there but if the spots around us were rented, it’s very close quarters with no natural barriers. The staff was SO friendly and the general store at the front had everything this rookie forgot. 😂 You can rent tubes there but you will need transportation to the springs and river run, which were both AMAZING. We just drove the RV to each. We would totally return to this park simply because of the proximity to the springs.
We are first time RV campers. We literally picked up our RV Saturday morning and drove to the springs for the night. It was easy to check in with the nicest hosts and simple to find our spot to park. After a morning storm, we walked the paved trail and we pretty much had the spring to ourselves. With several places to jump in and lots of fish to check out, this is a spring we’ll definitely be back to.
