Things To Do

Visitors enjoy music at the annual Cane River Music  Festival under the shade of the oak alley.

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, programs, and events within the park. We offer guided tours on a regular basis for both small and large groups. If a guided tour isn't for you, self guided tours are also available. Self guided maps of both plantations are provided below.
