Description:

More than 26,000 acres of land offer activities such as hiking, camping, or just strolling. You can also canoe or kayak in the Congaree River which runs through the park. For the more lackadaisical strollers, head to Boardwalk Loop Trail, a 2.4-mile finished path that goes through the stunning forest. Congaree is known for preserving the largest tract of old growth bottomland hardwood forest left in the United States. The lush trees growing in its floodplain forest are some of the tallest in the eastern United States, forming one of the highest temperate deciduous forest canopies remaining in the world. Join the Forest Wellness Program to participate in outdoor yoga or art classes! From mid-May to mid-June see the fireflies in action after dusk. Be sure to bring bug repellent! The park is open 24/7 year-round!
