The ranger at Tomoka State Park told me about Bulow so I drove there after spending the day at Tomoka. So glad I did! The Fairchild Oak was worth the trip! What a majestic site! It was late afternoon and too late to take the 6 mile or 3 mile hiking trail, but I did hike a shorter one to... More

Go and see the mind blowing Fairchild Oak in Bulow Creek State Park. You will go past the path to it (among other beautiful sights along the way and other park entrances) when driving the LOOP.

The huge oak is worth a look and the trails are beautiful! Go in the winter if possible to beat the heat. the park is split into two locations. They are both great.. but if time is limited or if your kids are too bored already just stop for the live oak and take a hike on the awesome trail.... More

I came upon ONLY a section of Bulow Creek State Park as I drove off Highbridge Road to Walter Boardman Lane. I'd been just driving on Highbridge as I'd heard it's pretty - well worth it if you've not yet been. Lovely drive and then came upon what feels like quite fortuitously just a couple of the trail heads that... More

What an awe inspiring site the Fairchild Oak is. Just imagining the things that old tree has seen over the years. The history that tree could tell if it could only talk. lol. Beautiful park and trails.

A large party of a bunch of real witches with funny hats and clothes were by the lake holding hands, in a circle, chanting, and a leader was telling them to look into each other's eyes. They had the whole picnic area reserved and the only bathroom. Basically you drive a loop through the woods, see the remains of a... More

We enjoyed seeing the ruins and hiking the trails - did most of the trail from the huge Oak tree at the south end up to the ruins on the north end. Enjoyed it all. So glad that we checked it out while in the area.

Lovely setting and well worth a visit. We were on bikes and enjoyed riding into the area. It was quite cool the day we visited so we would like to go back when the weather is better and stay longer.

Don't miss the Fairchild Oak tree. It is indeed a sight to behold! If you have the time (and right shoes + bug spray) hike the trail for awhile and enjoy the feeling of old tropical Florida!

Very clean and well preserved area. History buffs would enjoy this. Cost to enter park was very reasonable for residents and the same for non residents or Florida. We visited several Florida state parks and enjoyed them all.
