Nocatee Landing

Nocatee Landing provides access to a non-motorized boat launch in a conversation area along the Tolomoto River.

The park is open from dawn to dusk

Nocatee Landing is a picnic area with facilities in a beautiful and wild preserve along the Tolomato River north of St. Augustine. There is a launching area for non-motorized water vehicles, such as canoes, kayaks, and stand-up paddle boards; a bike rack and parking area; a pavilion with a view of the river; and solar-powered restrooms. Visitors will find themselves on a beautiful stretch of the Intracoastal Waterway, where they can see various wildlife, including peregrine falcons, eagles, and wading and sea birds.

Nocatee Landing Trail is in Ponte Vedra. From Nocatee Parkway, go south three miles on Crosswater Parkway to a roundabout and then take the eastern exit onto Nocatee Landing Trail. The road is paved at first, and then turns to gravel, and the distance is approximately two miles. There are no private-access roads on this route. 

Nocatee Landing is at the southeastern corner of Nocatee Preserve, 2400 acres of wildly beautiful land fronting a 3.5-mile stretch of the Tolomato River. The Nocatee Preserve is a conservation area of undisturbed old Florida flora and fauna and presents an excellent opportunity to view a section of undeveloped Florida.
