One Of South Carolina’s Most Incredible Natural Wonders, Congaree National Park, Holds 15 World Records

For those who have already visited South Carolina’s only national park, the appeal is instantly mesmerizing. Congaree National Park preserves one of the largest old-growth bottomland hardwood forests remaining in America. For nature enthusiasts, it boasts more than 15 species of champion trees – the tallest known examples in the world.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

If visiting in 2020, before you go, be sure to check the official page for Congaree National Park for COVID-19 information as well as trail status (especially during hurricane season, when the trails can be closed due to flooding). The park is open 24 hours a day (the visitor’s center is only open during regular business hours, though) and admission is free.

If you love seeking out oversized natural wonders, then be sure to plan a day trip to see South Carolina’s beloved Angel Oak Tree!
