I learned of this Historic Plantation and SC State Park from the Facebook group "Charleston History before 1945". Easy drive from Charleston to location off Hwy 17 just north of McCleanville. Special Architectural House tour was fascinating. Will return to explore the remainder of the...More

Tours of the house cost $7.50, but we didn't have time so we just walked around the area. Five to six signs explained some of the history and a small Ranger Station and gift shop housed a friendly staff eager to answer questions. The oak...More

I visited with my two teenage daughters. We had a good time, even though it was hot and buggy. I'm glad we purchased bug spray at the rangers station before going on the nature trail because the mosquitoes were definitely biting. A snake crossed our...More

This unfurnished 18th century unfurnished plantation house is very interesting in that some walls are removed showing how the house was constructed. The ranger was full of knowledge making the tour very interesting. We have been on many plantation tours and this was unique.

Wonderfully authentic !! To see an unrestored historic site like it was in the 1700's was very cool. The rangers were very knowledgable and friendly. I certainly hope that the State of South Carolina gives this site the funds to continue the restoration. I would...More

The standard vision of a southern rice plantation is of sheer elegance and opulence, with dusty paintings and a shade of decadence. Hampton Plantation dispels that perception to an extent. This plantation reflects an emphasis on functionality and advancing the profitable interests of the rice...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!
