Not far from the Ormond Tomb, this park features several decades-old oak trees, plus a three-mile nature trail. Also of interest is the fact that the park ranger lives on site.

This is a beautiful park. Unfortunately, we were there shortly after Hurricane Matthew, and as a result, most of the hiking trail was still closed. The Fairchild oak tree is an incredible site to see.

A lot of people seem to be getting this state park confused with Bulow Plantation Ruins State Park, which is located a short distance away in Flagler Beach. I must say, we visited both of these parks on the same day and we liked this one MUCH better. First of all, it's free. Secondly, the magnificent tree is awe inspiring.... More

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

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.
