Find Your Park Festival at Oakland Plantation


No matter what time of year, there is much to do within the park and in the surrounding area. Please visit our calendar for a list of activities and events within the park. We offer guided tours Wednesday through Sunday for both small and large groups. If a guided tour isn't for you, self guided and audio tours are both available. Many plantation buildings are open to view, a few including the plantation store and the quarters tenant cabins, are historically furnished to the 1960s era. The official NPS app can help plan and enrich your visit to Oakland and Magnolia Plantations. While at Oakland Plantation visit the park store Wednesday through Sunday for park related items.

The plantation grounds, trails, outbuildings, and visitor restrooms are open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The Oakland Plantation Main House is only open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for self-guided tours. The park does not offer visitors services, such as guided tours and shopping at the park store on Mondays and Tuesdays.

The park is closed all federal holidays.
