The Gator Chateau is home to rescued, baby alligators.

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.
