I've been to Charleston a dozen times and have never driven over to see this tree. It's definitely worth the trip to see it. There is no fee and you are able to park right beside the road. It's very convenient. It's a nice place to picnic with the family since there are plenty of picnic tables. It can be... More

My wife and I tried to drive into Kiawah Island and Seabrook Island to check them out, unfortunately being turned away due to both areas being "private". While this was frustrating, one of the security ladies did inform us that we should stop by a place called Angel Oak that had a beautiful oak tree. She turned out to be... More

Very peaceful standing under this ancient oak, you can almost sense all the people who have stood in the same spot through history. Cute gift shop with local offerings.

What a fun place to visit with family. We went a few years ago and I can't wait to go back. It's also good for photo opportunities. The oaks are magnificent and huge.

Enjoyed our brief visit to see this huge live oak tree. Was very crowded on a Sunday afternoon but I guess that is to be expected on the weekend. The tree has lots of cabling and supports to support the huge branches, so that takes away from some of the trees beauty. Overall a really unique tree and worth a... More

And thank goodness for those that believe in protecting them. This tree is special. It's a thought provoking moment to stand next to it and take in it's age. It's also a fun "selfie" moment for many. Just go. Hug it. Be happy.

My daughters (age 11 and 13) and I visited the tree on January 16, 2015. The tree was magnificent. It was well worth the trip just to see the tree. However, there was not much else pleasant about the visit. The worn, broken, signs around the tree gave very little on the history of the tree. We went inside the... More

You will be stunned by this awesome tree. It is so massive and majestic. It is one of the ten top trees in the world to visit.

Take the time to stop by the Angel Oak Tree in St. John's. It is beautiful, massive, and has an interesting history. But most of all, if you stand under it, and and listen, with your mind and heart, you can hear the voices. It's just one of those seemingly haunted venues that must have hosted a plethora of scampering... More

We were only in Charleston for one night and then headed to Savannah. We made a stop at Angel Oak tree and I'm so glad we did! It was so peaceful here that I can envision taking a picnic lunch and spending more time just enjoying the area. I read in another review that it was fenced off but that... More
