Turtle Mound is south of New Smyrna Beach, on the east coast in the central part of the state. It is in the northern section of the Canaveral National Seashore. It is a 50 foot high shell midden, the largest on the mainland United States. Early sailors used it as a navigational aid. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
