Cane River Creole National Historical Park

Cane River Creole National Historical Park is located within the Cane River National Heritage Area in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana. The park includes 42 acres of Oakland Plantation and 18 acres of Magnolia Plantation. The two park sites include a total of 67 historic structures remnant from 200 years of plantation life. Due to the preservation and restoration work in progress on these buildings and the grounds, there are limited services available to the public. There is much work to be accomplished, but seeing the work in progress is an incredible opportunity that all are welcome to experience. Formal tours of Oakland Plantation are provided free of charge each day at 1:00 p.m. Self-guided Grounds Maps are available at the Main House every day from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
