Virtual Paddle in Congaree National Park»
We explored Congaree on the boardwalk trails when we visited, but there are also marked water trails in the park. Enjoy this three-minute stroll and paddle through lovely Congaree, without the mosquitoes, courtesy of GoTraveler on You Tube (video embedded below):
Congaree National Park in South Carolina protects the old growth forest on the floodplain of the Congaree River. When we were there, we thought it a swamp because the Cypress trees we saw were submerged in water. It is technically not a swamp, but a ‘bottomland’ subject to periodic flooding.

I enjoyed the video and learning more about these wetlands. It certainly is good to have some preserved land. Vivienne
I lived in Charleston for a while and was able to visit Congaree. One of the wonderful things about the National Parks System is the number of unique sites which are included, and Congaree is one of them. I suspect that the pandemic is going to inspire more folks to take road trips in the US, and your blog will be a great source of info and inspiration. A timely idea with lots of good info – well done. ~James
Thanks so much! Congaree was a great stop to break up the driving that road trip, but it was too short a visit. Would love to take one of the ranger kayak tours someday
