Congaree National Park, South Carolina
Hang a Hammock in a 500-Year-Old Hardwood Forest
The 26,000-acre Congaree National Park, outside Columbia, is home to the largest old-growth hardwood forest in the Southeast. The park floods about 10 times a year, which pulls in nutrients that support the mega-tall cypress trees, some of which are 16 stories high and more than five centuries old. The floods also encourage rich biodiversity, with bobcats, otters, and flying squirrels all present in the park. Find a hammock spot off the seven-mile Oakridge Trail.
