$4 parking fee, trail wasnt to bad but the ruins were cool to learn about. Great place for someone who wants to kayak or rent a canoe with some friends and spend some time on the river.

Very simple trail. Bugs weren't too bad. The ruins were pretty cool.

We hiked from Bulow Woods State Park to the plantation ruins and back. When we got to the ruins, we paid a $2 per person entry fee. We went into the pavilion area to fill up our water bottles- the water coming out of the water fountain was brown- it tasted very salty. I'm sure it was straight from the river that lies behind the pavilion and picnic area. The park ranger lady was very nasty. She didn't want us sitting inside the pavilion because she had it rented out for the next weekend. She was riding around in her little golf cart reminding everyone that there is an admission fee and checking envelope stubs. She was very unpleasant. The sugar mill ruins and the slave quarters were the best part of the trip. A very sad piece of american history.
