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

Went there just to see what the ruins were all about. Turns out its a very nice park as well. Has walking trails, boat ramp, nice restrooms and of course the sugar mill ruins.

Nice place to take pics and explore one of the finest examples of an old live oak tree and ruins with clean restrooms. Clean hiking trails, just remember to take and use your mosquito spray! We took lots of great pics for our journey together!

got to visit free because we were at Gamble and it was worth the short drive. A very interesting place to visit. Very interactive kiosks during the small tour.

I couldn't believe this was out in the middle of seemingly nowhere! We took our two young ones out for the day. We walked the nature trail back to the Sugar Mill ruins. The Spring House ruins were roped off. It is a bit confusing...More

Park outside the park, walk in, or unhook your bicycles and ride in. You might even see the mysterious JsTaw. Rarely seen when it doesn't love it's previous surroundings.
