Cane River Creole National Historical Park preserves two of the most complete examples of Antebellum era plantations in the Southern United States, both of which continued to function on the sharecropper/tenant farmer model until the middle of the 20th century and greatly contributed to the development of the area’s Creole culture. The plantations are located a short distance from Natchitoches... More

We have visited a lot of places run by the National Parks Service. This one is well worth the visit if you can take the house tour at Oakland Plantation. When we visited in April 2016, there was only one tour at 1 pm. The house was home to seven generations. It has been left as it was when the... More

We really enjoyed our walks around the plantation grounds. We were unable to tour the houses, as one was being worked on and the other is a private residence. The staff was helpful and enthusiastic. The surrounding area is also a great place for birdwatching!

Came here during the holiday season and was given free hot chocolate and cookies! They had crafts for kids on this particular day as well. The house was still available for a free tour and the granddaughter of one of the owners gave the tour and told us about her family. The bottle garden is very neat, although it took... More

It was great and the cell phone tour is very interesting and helpful! The ranger wasn't really friendly but I didn't mind because the tour was so interesting! I would recommend it to anyone that loves history

This place is indeed beautiful, however, we expected a little bit more out of the Rangers that were there. First of all, please keep in mind that there are 2 locations. If you want to see the plantation house you need to go to a different location that that of the Overseers house. The Ranger at the Overseers house seemed... More

I've been wanting to visit Magnolia Plantation for years, but my husband never would make the drive from NOLA. A friend & I visited Shreveport and I wanted to show her a plantation since she'd never been to Louisiana and I figured this was my chance. I'm in a wheelchair and found the paths relatively easy to navigate. I appreciate... More

We just happened upon this wonderful national park and decided to stop to look around and are so glad that we did! After looking around at all of the buildings, we were just in time for a tour of the plantation home which is normally given by a park ranger. Just as we were leaving the store for the tour,...

We had a wonderful tour of the recreated fort and surrounding area by Tommy, who was in full period costume - everything seemed perfectly authentic down to his glasses. You could tell that he lives and breaths the abundant history. We had a very leisurely stroll and learned a lot about the way people lived back when the fort was... More
