Louey Tourism Award 2019 Attraction of the Year

Come Down the Bayou & Hold Our Baby Alligators!


The Gator Chateau is home to our American alligators. We are educational ambassadors for gators! Our goal is to teach the public about the American alligator. We are right off of I-10!

Our hours are Monday – Saturday, 9am -5pm. Closed on Major Holidays, call (337) 821-5521 to confirm.
Public viewing for feedings are on Fridays at 3:30pm – June-September.

Group Tours

Reservations available for Field Trips and Group Tours of 10 or more.

One of our alligator handlers will give a lesson on the gators – everything from their habitat, what they eat, how they grow, to how we care for them at our facility.

After the lesson, participants are allowed to hold one of our baby gators and take a pic with them.

Following your tour, be sure to shop in the front of the building (which houses the Jeff Davis Parish Visitors Center) to purchase a gator souvenir.

If your group is here around lunchtime, bring a sack lunch and have a picnic at our park. We have pavilions and picnic tables, along with full playground.
