If you find yourself in the Flagler Beach area of I-95 and have the time take a side trip to either this State Park or Washington Oaks Gardens State Park. Both are worth your effort. Bulow Plantation Ruins is half a mile off Old Kings Highway. The main parking area gives access to peaceful riverside setting where you can hire... More

Tucktaway beautifully! It's a must see! Road is very narrow but little signs all over explaining the history of this little gem!

We have been there a number of times with family and friends.. It is an extremely interesting. You walk through time and you can imagine the sugar mill and how it worked. Connected to the Inter-coastal the sugar was transported by boats to the port for shipment. In 1835 affairs and relationships with the Indian residents have broken into open... More

When you first get to the main parking past the gate one might question if it worth it. Wait take the loop drive or the hiking trail and you end up at the Sugar Mill ruins. The self-guided tour of this area was excellent as was the interpretive centre. Definitely worth the visit for history, cultural and nature buffs,

Over a mile long narrow road to get to the state park drive slow and carefully. The ruins are very interesting. Most of the interpreted speakers were not working, which was disappointing. Other than that the signage was well done and very interesting. Small nature hike back to the parking lot

We enjoyed seeing this and really liked that there were so many signs to explain the mill and its history. There is a building that has a lot of artifacts displayed inside glass panels that we found very informative. I took a lot of pictures but they are similar to ones already posted. There are restrooms on the back side... More

Very interesting to learn of Florida's early history. The largest sugar mil of its day, interesting owners, slave labor, and finally burned by the Seminoles in the second Seminole Indian War.

Very interesting and we all really enjoyed seeing the ruins. You can get some really neat pictures of the ruins and some really neat looking trees. Definitely a must see. Just make sure you put bug spray on.

I see there are only three Poor reviews of this park and all of them have to do with the same issue we had, the rude park ranger. It's very unfortunate they have such an unfriendly person running it, we will not be returning because of this. We visited a total of three State Parks in the same day and... More
