Did you know that in our very own Volusia County there is an Island you can only get to by taking a ferry? Happy DeLand took that ride to Hontoon Island State Park that is quaintly nestled between the St. Johns River and Hontoon Dead River.

Rentals, Wildlife, Fishing and So Much To See
Hontoon Island State Park is open from 8am- 1 hr before sunset, so you definitely want to get there as early as possible to see all that you can. We saw fish, old beautiful trees and took a very nice hike. You can kayak, canoe, fish, camp, picnic, hike, and take enough photographs to fill a book! Haven’t been able to visit yet? That is OK, they are open year round! Enjoy!
