General Information

Bulow Creek State Park
Copyright: - Florida Division of Recreation & Parks
Bulow Creek State Park
Description - Bulow Creek State Park preserves one of the largest remaining stands of Southern Live Oak forest along the east coast of Florida. The park was acquired in 1981 and contains 3,230 acres of upland forest, hardwood swamp, salt marsh and tidal creeks. The approach to Bulow Creek State Park from Ormond Beach is very scenic. Going north from the Tomoka River, Old Dixie Highway crosses marsh creeks and pine woods to the park entrance. There are several trails for exploring the interior of the park.

Attractions - Because this park is less developed than its nearby sister park, Tomoka State Park, nature lovers will enjoy exploring its trails along with the wildlife viewing opportunities. Trails may be approached from either the north or south entrance. Bicyclists will want to enter along the south end where they will find a 2-mile old road suitable for hiking and biking. It is the southern end of the park where the famed Fairchild Live Oak triumphs as the seventh-largest live oak in Florida having survived wars, hurricanes, shipbuilders and citrus growers.

Recreation - Bulow Creek State Park offers hiking, picnicking and primitive camping. The hiking trail is open for day use from 8:30 am to sunset. A primitive campsite is available to backpackers. An overnight permit is required. The permit, trail maps and other information may be obtained at the park office of Tomoka State Park, 4.5 miles south of Bulow Creek State Park on Old Dixie Highway.

Climate - The eastern coast of central Florida is usually hot and humid with thunderstorms throughout summer. Average summer temperatures range between 81 and 83 degrees Fahrenheit (27 - 29 Celsius). Winters are mild and dry with temperatures averaging 58 - 64 degrees Fahrenheit (14 - 18 Celsius). Typical yearly precipitation ranges from less than 52 inches to about 56 inches. Lightweight clothing and sunscreen are highly recommended during the summer months. Sweaters and jackets are appropriate attire in winter.

Location - Bulow Creek State Park is located in central Florida, off Old Dixie highway near Tomoka State Park and off Interstate 95 north of Orlando.
