Beautiful grounds for hiking, but take time for the guided house tour, which is unique in that rather than focussing on period furnishings, instead you get to see INTO the walls and ceilings and learn about its construction.

I really enjoyed seeing the plantation with its information as you toured on your own the fields that were planted in rice. They showed how the fields were irrigated by tidal water off the river. The house was very interesting especially seeing the deconstructed sections....More

The Hampton Plantation is located about an hour north of Charleston off Route 17 south of Georgetown, SC. The house tour ($7.50) is worth doing to understand the history of the Plantation and the history of the house. The plaster and lathe has been stripped...More

Located south of Georgetown, we enjoyed the peaceful setting of the Hampton Plantation. We did not go into the house, but instead walked the grounds. Loved the flowering trees and peaceful surroundings.

We loved the 1hour tour by one of the Park Rangers. Skyler was most knowledgeable. We enjoyed the gift shop also...many items for sale although the building is rather small. I recommend this state park highly !

Hampton Plantation is reached by heading south of Georgetown through a rural area. The plantation sits on grounds with majestic oaks draped in Spanish moss. The main house offers tours for history buffs. However, I recommend peeking into the outer building where house staff quartered...More

Very historical site. State Park. Mansion/building is preserved much as it was. The furnishings were sold off during the depression so the interior is bare. Well worth seeing especially in tandem with Hopsewee Plantation just 5 miles away.

The reviewer isn’t the actual site. I don’t know, but I would check the website.

$7.50 per adult. Call the number listed on their site info to see if they have additional hours. Some on the tour guides like to do more than 1 tour per day!
