This park is basically divided by Walter Boardman - a road. There are trails from the south end, cross Walter Boardman and hike to the north end. At the south end you'll find the amazing Fairchild Oak reputed to be over 2,000 years old. It's absolutely amazing. The north end of the park offers the remains of a sugar mill... More

Wonderful kept ruins of an almost gone era, the sugar plantations of Florida. Very well marked, explained and kept in good condition.

We were surprised by the size and age of this tree. There's some nature paths and wildlife. We saw a Doe and a Fawn while walking. Beware the pesky bugs that bite while walking the paths.

Gives a good understanding of commerce in the old days of FL. Sugar was the main event and was actually made at this location. Some of the original structure still stands. A self guided tour tells you how it was done. Take Deep Woods Off or Cutters, the mosquitos will carry you away otherwise!

Had a great time seeing the plantation again. Take the car back to the site if you have trouble walking, if not take the nature trail and see FL in the raw. They have a great screen room for outings and a fishing dock to enjoy.

The park is a nice place to visit. Liked the history. The kids were not as impressed, but to be fair, they just wanted to be at the beach.

Camping at Tomoka, and took a little side trip to Bulow. It looked really packed, but someone was having a wedding and all were congregated near the entrance. We parked and headed on a small hike to the remains of the mill. Very interesting and a great learning experience for the kids. All in all it takes less than an... More
