The favorite part of our experience was being given a guided tour by Rich Anderson, a volunteer. He took us to the battle areas and gave us in-depth history of how things unfolded. He also took us over part of the grounds and explained what else was there. We continued to walk more of the grounds. We had a special day. The reason he gave us a guided tour is because the visitor center and museum were closed for renovation.

Interesting visitor center with short film on the Seminole event in 1800s. Park is beautiful and well maintained. The staff knowledgable about past and present. Easy access near I 75. We took a short walk, visited the museum, and viewed the film and walked surrounding area. Very interesting history.

My husband and I live about 10 minutes from this park. We rode our bikes over. It was so interesting and sad at the same time. The trails are nice to walk on. Ranger Jordan Miller took the time to tell us the history of the park. You can tell he loves his job.

Bucolic setting with ample facilities. Lots of parking, clean and spacious bathrooms, covered picnic areas. The visitor's center was closed due to Covid. Simple and well-marked Nature Trail around the back of the property. $3 per car to enter, but totally worth it.

We recently moved to Central Florida and made a visit to Dade Battlefield Historic State Park located in Bushnell, FL in Sumter County on CR 603 between I-75 and US Route 301 at 7200 Battlefield Parkway. "Commemorating the battle that started the Second Seminole War in 1835, this 80-acre state park protects the historic battlefield and also the natural communities as they existed during the war." It includes 40 acres of pine flatwoods and a live oak hammock.

After Florida became a territory, the increase in settlers created tension among the native Seminole tribe also because they gave refuge to fugitive slaves. The conflict reached a high point in 1832 when several chiefs wanted to relocate the Seminole people west of the Mississippi to Indian Territory in present-day Oklahoma. Many refused to go.

On December 28, 1835, 107 officers and men under Major Francis Dade were en route to present-day Ocala. They were ambushed by 180 Seminole warriors in present day Bushnell who had watched them from a pine forest; the sentries were dismissed. All but three of the soldiers were killed; only six warriors died. This defeat started the the Second Seminole War which was the longest and most costly American Indian war in U.S. history.

The park is a peaceful place with numerous well-marked and cleared trails. Some of the grounds are intentionally not mowed to show what the original area looked like. There are a few memorials marking the place where some of Dade's men fell. Benches dot the trails; restrooms are available near the playground. It was interesting to learn about controlled burns of the woods every 1-4 years.

We walked around the elevated hill where reenactments occur. Don't miss the well marked "Ancient Oak Tree." Also note the live oaks with the "resurrection ferns" which come to life on the tops of live oak branches after rain. Also of note are the reconstructed log redoubt and a replica of the cannon used by Dade (near the restroom area).

There is a $3 vehicle entry fee up to 8 people; additional passengers pay $2 per person. Entrance fee for bicyclists and pedestrians is $2 per person. All fees are payable on the envelope honor system; no attendant is present. Parking is abundant perhaps because an annual reenactment normally occurs in early January. However, the 2021 event was canceled because of Covid. The museum at the Visitor Center is closed until further notice; summer day camps will not be held this year. The park is open from 8 a.m. to sunset 365 days a year. Several picnic pavilions are available for $53.50 per day including tax.

Not open. A nice little walk but nothing spectacular. The bathrooms are open. It is probably fun in December

We were in the area, saw a sign for Dade Battlefield and decided to take chance and go see it. I'm glad we did as the history (Seminole Indians) of the place was amazing. The Ranger on duty was very helpful and knowledgeable.If you're in the area, take time to visit this site.

This is a very active State Park. There are programs going on at least every month and a reenactment each January with cannons and thousands of participants. A good place to come for the museum and an enclosed pavilion for parties or a picnic
