Guided and Self-Guided Tours

We are proud to offer both guided and self-guided tours of the North Grove during the spring and fall seasons. The guided tours last approximately two hours and are led by park staff or a volunteer.

K-12 Educational Tours

During the months of April, May, and June, we offer a K-12 guided school tour at 9:30 a.m. or 11 a.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays for up to 60 students at a time. Each time slot costs $60 and can be reserved using the link below. Thirty (30) day advanced reservations are required.


FREE with 30 day-advanced reservations. Groups arriving without reservations will pay full bus or car fare. Register for Self-Guided tours to receive free bus parking and up to five free chaperone vehicles. Other vehicles must pay.

  • Self-Guided tours are only offered on Monday and Tuesday at 9:30 am and 11:00 am.

Visit the online booking page to schedule.

If you would like to request special accommodation based on group size, bus scheduling, etc., please contact park staff and we will work with you to the best of our ability. If your students need to arrive at the same time due to transportation, we can arrange for self-guided activities until your tour begins. We may be able to shorten your tours or change the tour times to accommodate your group based on guide availability.

If you have any questions please call 209-795-7980.
