Tiger Bay State Forest consists of 27,390 acres located in the central section of Volusia County, approximately seven miles west of Daytona Beach. The forest extends north and south of U.S. Highway 92. Four forest access points are located off of U.S. Highway 92. 

Tiger Bay State Forest was named after its largest physio-graphic feature, Tiger Bay, an extensive wetland that provides a critical aquifer recharge for the local area. Pine islands dot the extensive hydric swamp forest and comprise 40 percent of the property. Also found on the forest are two lakes, Indian Lake and Scoggin Lake, and several ponds. 

Recreational activities include hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, picnicking, boating, fishing, hunting, nature study, and photography. Horseback riding and bicycling are allowed only on forest roads, firelines, and designated trails. For more information, visit the Florida Forest Service's Tiger Bay Forest site
