See the largest tract of old-growth bottomland hardwood forest in the United States.

Astonishing biodiversity exists in Congaree National Park, the largest intact expanse of old-growth bottomland hardwood forest remaining in the southeastern United States. Waters from the Congaree and Wateree Rivers sweep through the floodplain, carrying nutrients that nourish and rejuvenate this ecosystem, which supports the growth of the champion trees. Anglers can expect to find various shiners, carp, pickerel, sunfish, bullhead, and perch in the rivers. Fishing is allowed for guests with a current South Carolina fishing license. Be courteous and adhere to the park's catch and release rule.  

Lather on the bug spray before you head onto the 2-mile boardwalk trail to explore the swamp. High humidity allows ferns and fungi to florish among the bizarre cypress roots. A variety of tall trees create a lush green canopy that is quite beautiful. Look up and enjoy bird watching along the way. Various hawks, eagles, sandpipers, doves, crows, sparrows, and finches live in these trees. If you want to go kayaking or canoeing, be aware that you have to bring your own boat. The Cedar Creek Canoe Trail begins at Bannister's Bridge and follows the Congaree River for 15 miles. Explore this unique forested national park in South Carolina with your friends and family.
