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 on a regular basis 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 Slave/Tenant Cabins, are historically furnished. The official NPS app can help plan and enrich your visit to Oakland and Magnolia Plantations. While at Oakland Plantation visit the park store located at the Plantation Store for park related items.
*The grounds, trails, and visitor restrooms at Oakland and Magnolia Plantations are open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The plantation outbuildings are available Wednesday through Sunday at both sites. The Oakland Plantation Main House is only open weekends from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.*
