The LeConte-Woodmanston Plantation and Botanical Garden National Historic Site is open daily to the public for hiking, picnicking and self-guided garden tours. Guided tours are available by appointment only. No motorized vehicles are allowed on trails. The gates are intended to protect this historic site with its fragile system of earthen dikes by excluding vehicles. Pedestrians are invited to explore. We apologize for any inconvenience. Restroom facilities and picnic areas are always open to the public and are handicapped accessible.

Visitors experience the serenity of the Avenue of Oaks, see the foundations of Louis's home, view a replica slave cabin and stroll through the cypress forest on a mile-long interactive trail along historic earthen rice dikes. The intricate system of dikes and canals includes a replica sluice gate used to impound the water of BullTown Swamp for rice cultivation.

LeConte Woodmanston is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is a Coastal Georgia Greenway Trailhead as well as a part of The Liberty Trail, East Coast Camellia Trail and the Coastal Georgia Birding Trail. It offers something for everyone whether you're a gardener, wildlife enthusiast, bird watcher, nature lover or history seeker!
