Formerly inhabited by the Timuca Indians Tomoka State Park at 2099 N. Beach Street in Ormond Beach. The Tomoka River over nineteen miles in length home to Manatees, Bottlenose Dolphins, alligators and to seven species of birds.
Surrounded by broadleaf trees the 1-mile trail offers plenty of shade. Read the interpretative plaques as you walk along the trail and be amazed at the many different usages of the trees. When arriving at the clearing visit the site of Nocoroco the former Timuca Indian village. A sculpture dedicated to “Chief Tomokie” the Timuca Indian Chief by Fred Dana Marsh.
Rent a canoe, kayak or paddleboard at the Tomoka Outpost and explore the thirteen miles of canoe trails. Sit in a rocking chair by the water’s edge, feel the gentle breeze while watching the boats launch. I recommend the park, a lot of natural beauty.
