Welcome to Bulow Creek State Park
Bulow Creek protects nearly 5,600 acres, more than 1,500 of which are submerged lands.
The highlight of Bulow Creek is one of the largest remaining stands of southern live oak forest along Florida's east coast.
The reigning tree is the Fairchild Oak, one of the largest live oak trees in the South. For more than 400 years it has been a silent witness to human activities along Bulow Creek, including the destruction of the neighboring Bulow Plantation during the Second Seminole War in 1836.
Several trails allow hikers to explore the interior of the park, where visitors can see white-tailed deer, barred owls and raccoons. The Bulow Woods Trail, nearly seven miles long, takes hikers to Bulow Plantation Ruins Historic State Park.
Visitors can picnic in a shady pavilion or at a table on the lawn within view of the Fairchild Oak.
