Bennett Field Campground Tiger Bay State Forest Daytona/Ormond Beach Fl

The Bennett Field Campground is located in the Tiger Bay State Forest. You will find an easy entrance located off of Route 40 about 5 min west of Ormond Beach Fl in Volusia County.

The road is a compacted dirt road. It is easy to navigate even with a small car. There is some water and mud in places after its rained and there are a few ruts to avoid but otherwise an easy drive.

There is a primitive campground, group camp, with a pit toilet, picnic tables fire rings, and grills. The equestrian campground also provides stalls. There is no electricity or water however we did see a hand water pump. There are several horseback riding trails and the equestrian area is available for day use. There are two lakes and several ponds available for fishing and boating.

The fees are less than $9 at the time of this posting.

The sites are beautiful and large with plenty of room to spread out. The ground is fine for tent stakes and fairly level for campers. Be prepared and bring enough water and supplies with you. The pit toilets are good in an emergency however I would suggest bringing your own lugabaloo, porta potty, or other bathroom accommodations.

This is a forest area with plenty of wildlife. You may encounter gators, snakes, raccoons, opossum, deer, and bear. Keep all food out of sight in approved containers or locked inside your vehicle and remove all food from the area after eating.

The beach is only 15 to 20 minutes away. There is a walmart, gas stations and plenty of restaurants and shopping about 10 minutes away.

We are giving this primative forest campground a thumbs up. The sites are beautiful with plenty of space and the fees are low.

We found the easiest way to get there was from the Route 40 entrance. Coming from I95 get off at the Ormond Beach exit taking Rt 40 west. You will see the signs in the posted pictures for Rima Ridge Tiger Bay State Forest. There is also an entrance from Daytona Beach off Rt 92 International Speedway Blvd.
