Congaree National Park, Hopkins

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 and sediments that nourish and rejuvenate this ecosystem and support the growth of national and state champion trees.

  • An amazing national park that is not talked about. It is free. It is so unique because if miles of boardwalk. The whole park submerges under water during the winter time and it lush and lively during summer. The trails have mosquitoes but boardwalk is good. if you can bring your kayak, I believe it is a whole new experience that we were not able to enjoy

There was a lot to learn about the trees and the visitor's center had a video to watch before hand that was very helpful and informative. Really recommend visiting this park!
