A visit to Congaree National Park in Richland County, South Carolina, is a visit to the past, before the era of logging and the destruction of most of the virgin forestland in South Carolina. Congaree NP, about 27,000 acres, is the largest stand of old growth bottom hardwood forest in the United States. The park borders the Congaree River. There are some impressive trees in the swampland, some world record holders, and an immense variety of hardwoods and pines. Most impressive are the bald cypress trees with their knees.

Birds and small animals abound and can be seen as one meanders along the boardwalk and many trails in the park.

Pick a time to visit when there are few other visitors and enjoy the quiet of the forest in South Carolina’s only National Park.  Well worth a visit.

And be sure to take notice of the Mosquito Meter in the Visitors Center!
