Hampton is one of my most favorite places in the world to visit. I love it here in all its untouched beauty. Very peaceful and don’t miss a nearby graveyard and Parrish which is also very interesting!

This plantation was kept cool in summer with an interesting method of "air conditioning." Note the half circle openings below the porch. Cool air was allowed in through openings which went under the plantation keeping the place cooler in the summer. There is also a...More

Ended up here at last minute. Really enjoyed seeing the history and listening to the tour on how it was and came to be. The young ranger did a very good job. Very glad we made the visit to this state park. Inexpensive and didn't...More

Informative 30-minute house tour given by the park ranger. House is not furnished which allows for architectural details to be seen and discussed. TIP: Bring bug spray!!

The Hampton is a work in progress owned by the state (I believe). Extremely nice tour guide! We enjoyed the stop and the grounds.

One of our best visits. Beautiful house in remote plantation gives a real sense of the life. The prosperity and decline over 250 years are so easy to imagine. The house has been stripped back of the 20th century repairs and the skeletal interior brings...More

It seems to be out in the middle of nowhere down a sand road that leads to a creek and there is the Ranger and gift house. We lucked out and had a guest tour guide that knew anything and everything about the house. You...More

Off the beaten path but easy to find - the Hampton Plantation is a fun place to stop for a walk, a picnic lunch and an opportunity to learn a little about local history. Worth the trip.

$7.50 per adult. Call the number listed on their site info to see if they have additional hours. Some on the tour guides like to do more than 1 tour per day!
