This is a great example of how a plantation home truly looked. The emphasis of the state park is CONSERVATION, not restoration, so the home and grounds remain very true to how they would have looked during their times as a working plantation. We were...More

We visited 2 other plantations, and Hampton had less to share than the others. You are able to walk the grounds, the house is not always open for tours. The grounds are vast and the plaques are few and far between with little information, or...More

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!

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

$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!
