Self guided tour of ruins

Near a lake where you can rent a canoe. There is a self guided tour of the plantation ruins. It is very interesting how sugar cane was processed.

Interesting and informative site of the ruins of Bulow sugar plantation and mill. Set in a beautiful State Park this is a great place to bring your camera and learn about Florida's past. There is a good deal of stone structure remaining of the mill/sugar processing site. We happened to visit on a day with an event and lucked into... More

What a fabulous place to spend an hour or so delving into the old South history. Wonderful display of old tools and items used to render sugar cane into granulated sugar and molasses.

Florida State Park, Going to cost you $4, no ranger, honor system, I didn't have any change so I left a $5 in the envelope, but that's OK. Like earlier stated, The entrance is easy to miss, It is right across from the sign. Down a long, narrow bumpy road. A plaque stated this was the original plantation road from... More

Go for a walk in seemingly unspoiled and generally underused Florida woods. You may hear owls, warblers and woodpeckers in the canopy, or armadillos and deer crashing around in the underbrush off the trail. Dogs welcome on leash! See ancient trees, enjoy a well-marked, flat and easy hiking route, and bring your binoculars.

An interesting set of ruins that speaks little to the suffering of the 193 slaves who toiled and suffered under the hands of a "master" who as the sign indicates "worked" the plantation. Another interesting aside is concerning the Seminoles who burned the plantation house because they " believed " the lands were theirs. Yes I too believe the lands... More

After driving down a VERY bumpy road that seemed like forever- finally got to the park- the whole ride there is like OLD Fla. must have been...so cool. The ruins are very cool too.

A long sandy road leads to the shore of Bulow Creek and the location of the ruins of an old sugar mill. There are picnic grounds, a covered picnic pavilion, rest rooms and parking. A short walk takes you through the woods to the ruins or you can drive the loop road. At the creek, there is a boat ramp... More

Stopped to check out plantation ruins. Open 900 to 500. Fee from 2.00 to walk in to 4.00 for vehicle. Total walk is 1.4 miles from outside to water front the ruins and back. All shaded with small nature trail also.

Amazing little gem hidden off of Old Kings Highway. Just can't imagine what it must have been like when Bulow worked this mill.
