It's just cool to see this old humungous tree! We just drove to it and looked at it and was on our way. Just should take the few minutes to see it.

The history of this area is amazing! This tree is 300-400 yrs old and is massive. Just to think it has survived the storms is amazing. Worth the trip but go early it gets crowded. You feel like you have stepped back in time.

We are so blessed that the Angel Oak has been preserved for all of us to enjoy. The tree is indescribable. As breathtaking as the oak is, I have to say that the most amazing part of my visit here was upon departure. We saw a white squirrel in the neighboring trees. These animals are very rare and not frequently... More

We were told about this tree from our concierge and also a tour guide. We are so glad we drove the extra 15-20 minutes from the city center to see it. The tree is just magnificent with it's sprawling branches and someone has taken great care to keep it alive and well as they have placed holding blocks under the... More

I've been visiting the Charleston area for over 30 years, and this was the first time I've gone to see the Angel Oak. It was amazing! Pictures do not begin to capture the true magnificence of this tree. The location is off the beaten path, but there were only a few people there. I have heard that the crowds can... More

The tree was beautiful and wonderful sight to see if the only issue we had was that whomever was running it for the day decided to close the gates at 4 o'clock as well as the gift shop. So even though it was not supposed to close until 5 my family and I felt rushed while trying to view this... More

What an amazing site! If you are staying around Charleston, I highly recommend this site. You will be amazed with the tree. It really is great to see in person. There is no price of admission. There is a gift shop that is a little limited with limited staffing. Again, this is a great site worth the scenic drive.

This is an ancient oak tree that is simply beautiful. Loved it. They do have certain hours so check before you go, it's only about 15-20 min outside Charleston.
