History & Nature Eleven known plantation sites have been located in this park. The Dummett Mill Ruins, which can be seen from Old Dixie Highway and the nearby Bulow Plantation Ruins Historic State Park, are the most notable sites. British noblemen or military officers that received land grants for their service owned these plantations. They produced rice, cotton, sugar cane and indigo. The sugar cane was processed in mills and yielded molasses and sugar. The Dummett Mill was also used to produce rum. The mill was in operation from the 1820s until 1836 when it was destroyed during the Second Seminole War.

Camping and Cabins Guide Florida State Parks FloridaStateParks.org • #FLStateParks Welcome When the setting sun paints the evening sky, where will you make your bed? Florida’s state parks offer you a variety of overnight accommodations. At a Florida state park, the day’s work is play, a walk on the beach, a hike through the woods, a swim, a bike ride. All you need is a fishing rod, a kayak, a book and a friend. What do you want to see when the sun rises on the new day? Choose a wooded campsite within walking distance of white sandy beaches or camp along the banks of a quietly moving river. Bring your boat or canoe, or fishing tackle and a rod, for a relaxing time with family and friends. Explore nature on the hiking trails, while at the same time leaving stress of the busy world behind. Attend a festival, a reenactment or simply do nothing. We are committed to providing a variety of accessible amenities for all visitors at Florida state parks, including campgrounds and cabins. 2 FloridaStateParks.org • #FLStateParks Family Camping Florida’s state parks offer more than 50 campgrounds statewide for tents, campers and RVs.
