  • If you are looking for local history about the cane river and it's plantations or centeral Louisiana history, this is a great place to start. The plantation isn't like your Greek revivals of later years and holds a lot of interesting nuances. The tour is short but provides great detail and you can walk the grounds and buildings.
  • I hate giving any NPS site a poor review, but this Park was just so so. The good thing is that it runs parallel to the highway so if you're just passing through North to South it's not out of your way. It does look like they are trying to make some improvements so maybe future visitors will find it more enjoyable. Be advised that it's a good amount of walking on mowed paths. Not good for wheelchairs or strollers. Could be muddy when wet.
  • I will definitely be back ! Super cool !
  • This review is for the Oakland Plantation. It's just down the road from Natchitoches, and the grounds are gorgeous. Just one family owned the plantation from the 1600s to the 1980s or so, so all of the buildings are full of stories. And not just the plantation owners, but also the slaves and later share-croppers that made the place work. I was amazed at the fact that the Park Service has done such a good job of maintaining relationships with all of the families that worked and lived there. Only downside is the house is undergoing some renovations at the moment so you can't see inside it. The Park Ranger that was there did a great job of giving a tour, though, so it's still worth a drive.
  • Great plantation and grounds! Very historical!
