Very interesting, enjoyed it all, mostly self guided except for the main house, staff were very friendly and helpful, it's actually a park with horse riding and hiking trails, fishing, canoeing, and picnicking.

Great overview of life on a plantation. Very easy to tour, I recommend the tour of the house. Give yourself a couple of hours to explore the plantation and some extra time to take one of the nature trails. It really exceeded my expectations.

I live near by, I talk to people and they have never heard of this park.it has horse back riding , 2 canoe access locations , nice walking trails, with look out locations on Mt. Island lake. Many planned activities.seems to be a safe place to walk. Stop by the office at the entrance for information

I wish the guy who helped saddle had listened to me to fix the stir-up better, but the girl that took us out was awesome and I would do it again.

We go on a lot of house tours (it's our "thing") but I have to honestly say, the lady who gave the tour gave one of the most interesting and knowledgeable tours w have ever been on! This alone makes it worth the trip. Coming from the Williamsburg area; I wish they all dressed and performed their activities in the... More

With 20 miles of trails Latta is a great place to spend time in nature. On Wednesday evenings and Friday mornings there are ranger led hikes. Some trails are shared with horses but others are horse free. The staff is helpful and provides informative on hikes and other events. If you don't have time to drive an hour or more... More

We happened to visit the Latta Plantation while the Celtic festival was going on. It was interesting as they had clans there, some revolutionary and civil war folks and even someone dressed up as a knight. We were mixing all kinds of time periods. It was nice that we had a few docents in the house and some music and... More

The plantation house is far from impressive. The tour guide is friendly and enthusiastic, but the tour lacked details and wasn't well organized. Every other sentence was a new thought or quip about the house or room. Some of the rooms had tacky fake food and other children's items in place to stand in for real items. I would not... More

The plantation is in the middle of a nature reserve that offers many recreational activities among the thick woods. The plantation its self is small (a handful of buildings) that can quickly be toured but the real richness of the site is the knowledgeable staff who are very helpful and forthcoming in sharing the unique stories and facts of the...

My 9 year old attends one of the Summer Camps that Latta Plantation offers and he loves it. All little boys like to play pretend so what's better than a camp where you can pretend to be a soldier from the Revolutionary or Civil war. The staff that is in charge of the camps are awesome and you feel transported... More
