Old Santee Canal Park

Opened in 1800, the Santee Canal was the first true canal built in America. Four miles of boardwalks and trails provide an up-close view of the park's natural beauty and wildlife. Canoe rentals are available to explore Biggin Creek and the southern terminus of the Santee Canal. The Interpretive Center houses exhibits on the cultural and natural history found on the historic Stony Landing Plantation. A 19th-century plantation house and picnic facilities are on site. Also at the park is the Berkeley Museum, which records county history. Special programs and events are held throughout the year.
