We had the unfortunate experience of going to this park. We entered at gate B12 by the crabbing bridge. We started up the trail only to find it was very muddy with standing water so we returned to our car. We had not left our...More

We visited the ruins on Nov. 10, 2017. The park was open, as were the ruins, but some walking trails were still closed from Hurricane Irma. Starting with the site of the 1830s house, just beside the creek, the exhibit is well explained by signs...More

Want to take a trip to good ole days? Meaning, the hardship and hard lot of the slaves who ran this sugar mill--in the heat, humidity, and mosquitos. A lot to contemplate here, and there are enough of the ruins and self-guided tour to see...More

Below Plantation is a very interesting park with the ruins of an old sugar mill. There are hiking trails in the surrounding area.
