Congaree National Park

Congaree National Park preserves the largest remnant of old-growth floodplain forest remaining on the continent. Experience national and state champion trees, towering to record size amidst an astonishing array of plants and animals. In addition to being a designated Wilderness Area, an International Biosphere Reserve, a Globally Important Bird Area and a National Natural Landmark, Congaree is home to a museum quality exhibit area within the Harry Hampton Visitor Center, a 2.4 mile boardwalk loop trail and over 20 miles of backcountry hiking trails. The park also hosts a wide variety of guided walks, canoe tours, talks and presentations offered throughout the year (visit the Web site for more information). Other popular activities within the park include backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, birding, nature study and more! Before you embark on your adventures, stop by the Harry Hampton Visitor Center to pick up a map and brochure, watch the introductory film and get the latest information about conditions in the park.
