Interact with Live Alligators

AND LEARN ABOUT THEM AT GATOR CHATEAU

The Gator Chateau is home to rescued, baby alligators. We foster the gators until they are able to be released back into their natural habitat. Our alligator docent will educate you in all things Alligator! Our babies are hand fed, they don’t bite, and you can hold them and take your picture!

SEE WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT!

No Admission Charged

… but donations are accepted. Motor coaches are welcome.

Group Tours

Reservations available for Field Trips and Group Tours.

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 rescue facility.

After the lesson, we will split your group up into smaller groups. Forming a circle around one of our handlers, the students are allowed to hold one of our baby gators and take a pic with them.

Following your tour, be sure to stop in next door at 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.

Please feel free to call or email us your inquires at [email protected].
