The Angel Oak is located in a quiet and secluded wooded area on Johns Island it's away from the hustle and bustle of the Charlestown tourism scene. You won't believe the size of this tree. You've never seen anything like it. Be sure and take a photo of a family member or friend standing at the base of the tree.... More

We stopped at the Angel Tree after visiting the Charleston Tea Plantation and found it a little disappointing. After having read other reviews we felt it was not as awe-inspiring as the other reviews had indicated. It is off the beaten track and the entrance road was difficult to find. In our opinion, although it is a magnificent tree and... More

This tree speaks for itself, and it's pretty close to Charleston. No fee. So if you have a couple hours it's worth it to take a peek.

This ancient tree is an amazing thing to see. I have never seen a tree this big and it was pretty inspiring to stand underneath it. I wish there had been more historical markers around.

I loved the almost other-worldly presence of this incredible live oak, anywhere from 800-1400 years old! We came on a very rainy day, which actually added to the mystic feeling. Imagine the life story of this tree, stretching to the sky and, with its powerful bark, across the ground. Some branches are so heavy they need to be supported by... More

What a fantastic old tree! The kids dreamed up stories about how 'çool' it would be to have a tree house in such a tree! They would have loved to climb it (but we arrived just after 5:30pm on a Sat and the gates were closed) - and of course you cannot climb it - or build a treehouse!. There... More

So glad we took the time to drive out and see this spectacular tree!! It's absolutely amazing! I appreciate all the work that has gone into preserving this tree and placing all the supports to hold all the limbs in place from breaking away! Even if you aren't a nature buff, you gotta check this out!!

Just a quick drive from Charleston & definitely worth it for nature lovers. Pictures just don't do it justice, you have to see it for yourself. I've never seen a more magnificent tree. Cute little gift shop on site & picnic tables are a plus.
