"CONGAREE SWAMP NATIONAL..." Columbia Off The Beaten Path Tip by scbelle

Columbia Off The Beaten Path: 11 reviews and 24 photos


Hopkins, SC
Just head down Bluff Road (by Williams Brice Stadium) for a ways and you'll find this little gem, protected by the National Park Service. The heat in Columbia can be overbearing, so I would not suggest a visit in July or August unless you go in the early morning. By kayak or Canoe, however, it might be quite nice. This black water swamp is magical, romantic, an escape from the blacktop.
For more info, visit the National Park Service's website, which includes recreational links:
