Things to do at Congaree National Park

Congaree National Park is located in South Carolina and there are so many adventures to explore.


Congaree offers everything from a stroll along the Boardwalk Trail to challenging backcountry treks.

Canoeing and Kayaking

Paddling on Cedar Creek takes you through a peaceful, old-growth forest where you can view wildlife like otters, turtles, deer, wading birds, and alligators.

If you seek a more extended excursion, you can paddle the Congaree River Blue Trail, a 50-mile trek starting in Columbia.


You can fish in nearly all areas of the peaceful park other than on or within 25 feet of artificial structures like overlooks, boardwalks, and bridges.
