Congaree National Park is a 26,276-acre American national park in central South Carolina. Astonishing biodiversity exists in Congaree National Park; it’s 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.
Visitors to Congaree National Park enjoy miles of boardwalks and hiking trails through the swamp as well as canoeing and kayaking, fishing, camping, and amazing firefly viewing usually in May or June.
