  • Family reunion for at least 25 years. Love to go there. Family progenitor was >in battle of rivers Bridge.
  • Nice park to spend an afternoon and/or have a picnic. Trails are simple. The battleground trail is informative and educational of the events that took place and how the war was being fought nearing it's conclusion. The bridges and other relics of the battle are gone but still lots of scenic views of the battleground and swamp area along the Salkehatchie River where it all took place.
