So if you like eco-history, take the drive and check out this old tree. Impressive size, great history. Nothing to do here - small gift shop. This excursion will take you about 10 minutes to enjoy....snap a picture and leave!

Out in what feels like the middle of nowhere is this huge (huge doesn't even do it justice) oak tree, that according to the literature in the gift-shop area is 300-400 years old. We were just blown away by it's size, the branches skimming the ground (the size of regular trees themselves in many cases), and the trunk. You could... More

This tree is beautiful and majestic. We only stayed a few Minutes because it started to thunderstorm but we were able to get out and get a few Pictures. It is romantic looking area. There's a gift shop which we didn't go into because of the rain. No admission is charged though there is a fence that closes in the... More

Unbelievable specimen of oak tree in the low country. Thought to be roughly 799 years old with expected life span of another 700 years. Great place to stop for 15" of education on the way to the beaches of Kiawah and seabrook!

This popped up so I am reviewing it. County park with the largest Live Oak around. Definitely worth the side trip. This tree is HUGE with branches 12 feet around. A Bunch of families when we were there and they were hogging up all available photo opportunities. If if want a clean photo of the tree you may be waiting... More

Beautiful, graceful living oak tree! Small gift shop with no restroom facilities available...just a couple of port-a-potties.

This tree is beautiful and majestic. It was definitely worth the stop to see it. Parking wasn't bad. There are a lot of people around so there will be people in your pictures. I'm glad we stopped to see it.

For years I have wanted to see this tree in person. I have looked at photos of it online, but NOTHING could compare to the experience of standing under its massive, billowing boughs! It is tucked away down a little lane off the beaten path. You could drive by it on the highway a dozen times and never know it... More

Was well worth the time to find this tree. Go see it.I was amazed at how many people could stand under this tree and it not be crowded, bring your camera.

I have seen many oak trees , but this was incredible ! Majestic and massive . If you are into photography, this is a great stop. You will have to wait for the people to move out of your shot , but it's worth it .
