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

One can easily spend a day at Bulow Creek State Park. The oak trees are truly amazing! The trails are plentiful and there are lots of great geocaches at this park. A good trail map would be helpful, but if nothing else take a picture of the map on the sign next to the restrooms.

We were driving "The Loop" and saw the signs for the hiking trail into the park. To the right side of the road, the trail takes you back to an observation deck , overlooking a small pond/marsh area. From here you can go further back and view the ruins of the Bulow Sugar Mill. Coming back to the road and... More
