  • We spent a lovely two days driving up and down, visiting the Creole plantations. We had a spectacular Ranger- Tim who was very informative and personable. We have visitied several Antebellum homes in ...  more »
  • I hate to give a poor review to an NPS site, but this one deserves nothing more. Overall, the site is moderately curated. Each structure could use more context for those on the self-guided tour, which...  more »
  • We make a point to stop at any NPS sites along our travel route as we can. We were a little tight one time the day we came here, which meant self-guided tour of the Oakland Plantation. The main house ...  more »
  • Great plantation and grounds! Very historical!
  • 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.
  • I live in California.... Specifically the suburbs outside of Los Angeles so as you can imagine it was all, very different, not only this Historical Park, but Natchitoches & Louisiana in general.... I Love it there slower pace, friendly people, cleaner air, I could go on & on but to get back to topic, I only saw the outside of the Plantation but it was such an awesome feeling, like I'd just step out of a Time Capsule & was now apart of life long ago.... I Love Natchitoches, it's quant & very genuine. I'm hoping next time I'll be able to get inside! Until next time...😊
  • Lots of history and great info from ranger
