On the Congaree River, this park is the largest portion of old-growth floodplain forest left in North America. Some of the trees are the tallest in the Eastern US, and the Boardwalk Loop is an elevated walkway through the swamp. Canoeing and fishing are also popular in this park. The Harry Hampton Visitor Center is open 7 days a week, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and is closed on federal holidays. Entrance to Congaree National Park is free. The park does not charge for admission, camping or any ranger led programs.Show more
