We arrived pre- bike week; pre- spring break. Love the layout of this park. A jungle within civilization. The roads are narrow, sand packed and picturesque- lovely for bike riding. The campsites are private. They do require considerable skill backing a rig in though- but worth it!! The restrooms were clean as were the showers. Unfortunately we had a party group next to us that was quite loud, had music blaring and an out of control campfire. Our fear was the dense vegetation and windy conditions. They were ushered out of the park before we woke the next morning. Staff was cleaning the site and drowning the remains of the fire when we emerge from our camper. The staff was excellent. There is a nice area and vendor for canoe / kayak rentals. We enjoyed Tomoka very, very much despite our neighbors and appreciate the action of the staff. Ormond and Daytona beaches are close by. Ormond beach also has special wheelchairs for taking your handicapped loved one down to the water's edge. There are some great restaurants nearby too. Our reservations are made for next year.
This is an older campground. The campsites are quite close together but tolerable because of the shade and vegetation. The ground is damp; be prepared for some mud. The bathhouses are dated and need renovation.There are no sewer hookups which tends to force campers to use the facilities. The campground was full, and I think that the bathhouses were quite heavily used; therefore could use more frequent sanitation intervention. Additionally, because of it's location, be prepared for mosquitoes. That being said, I enjoyed the campground for it's proximity to Marco Island and the beaches there. The campground offers an array of activities and has, again dated, a nice screened in community room to house some of their events. There were oodles of kids in this campground and all seemed to be having a blast. The campground was peaceful and quiet at night. The staff was helpful, professional, and courteous. There was a photo of panther cubs on the office wall. I commented as to how beautiful they were; the ranger told me the whole story. He took the time to envelope me with the work done with the panthers: I was amazed at what they do!!
We stayed one night at this very quiet, small, out of the way campground in March on our way to Florida. The bathhouse was dated but very clean. The campsites were far enough apart to enjoy and be somewhat private. The staff was professional, helpful and courteous.
A very well organized, well managed, newly renovated park. The bathhouses are a model for any state park, and sparkling clean. Crews kept the grounds very clean and trash emptied. The sites are well planned, roomy and very level, but open and in the sun. For this reason, hats, awnings and sunblock are an absolute must. The campsites are neatly framed out with pseudo-timbers filled with fine white stone and ample parking. You are warned upon arrival not to place your tires on the grass. Do pay attention to the warning, they aren't kidding. There is plenty of room for a camper and a tent or screen house at each site.The camping area is relatively close to the highway but there is no traffic noise. The park is well secured and very quiet at night. The staff are very professional, helpful and courteous. Although we don't have small children, there was a lovely playground within the campground. Also covered pavilions are available. Hobe Sound Beach and the National Seashore are only a few miles from the campground: beautiful beaches. There are excellent restaurants within 10-15 miles of the park. We will return.
I will judge all other campgrounds by this beautiful, organized and well run park. I cannot locate my receipt for the park but remember that the nightly fee was just a bit over $30 and so worth it. The staff were all amazing, the sites were clean and well organized, the roads were well paved and smooth, the views were lovely and captivating. We camped on the lake overlooking the lodge. The park is relaxing and serene. We are an older couple without children, but saw many children enjoying fishing and biking. Of special interest in the area, was the historic old state (mental) hospital in nearby Weston who's beginnings date to pre-Civil War. We will return to Stonewall again and again.
