Brought bikes, the trials were seriously overgrown and trees were down. A mess! Lots of tree roots,mud and bugs. Road in two miles and went back. Very disappointed first park in Florida that the trails weren’t maintained. Maybe nicer in winter

We stopped specifically to see the Fairchild Oak and it stands there greeting visitors at the parking area. It's truly a thing of beauty! It was hot and humid the day we visited, so I'll return to walk the nature trails. Highly recommend!

this is a well preserved ruins with a small out-door museum of various items found around the grounds. Burned during the Indian War. Parking is near by and easy access.

This places a cool spot to discover. All the history on this land makes it a must see. The kids liked exploring along the trails. Nice screened picnic area and bathrooms.

The Oak tree at the entrance is just simply awesome. Just knowing the age of the tree made me feel such gratitude to Mother Nature. The trail and the walk was interesting on its own. Beautiful experience.

It was raining the day we stopped here so our tour was limited. We came to view the largest Live Oak Tree in the South. It was spectacular. I couldn't believe how large the main tree was and the limbs keep on going and growing...More
