What a great park! If you want some great photographs of the SC costal scenery, wildlife, shrimp boats, etc., go here !! Mainly, it's a long boardwalk thru marsh & to the creek/river, but well worth the stop !!! Bathrooms & restaurants at start.

Just the "right size" nature trail....not too short, not too long, just right. Lots of water life to see along the way, including herons, schools of fish, crabs, seagulls. Well kept boardwalk with bathrooms at the start of the path as well as a great pelican sculpture created by local school kids. Bonus: no mosquitoes!

Not a lot of features here, mostly a series of boardwalks through the marsh. It is a nice place to take a leisurely walk through the marsh and along Shem Creek and watch the activities on the water. Good place to take photos of wildlife in the marsh and boats on the creek.

I LUV walking on their boardwalk, along the waterway. The view is exceptional & I could spend hours watching the shrimp boats & watching them catch fish. Zillions of little crabs in the marsh to view. They have informative signs along the way so you can read about the birds you see & other miscellaneous things. Bring your camera! This... More

We went to Shem Creek Park while vacationing in Mount Pleasant. I'm so glad we did! It was such a beautiful walk! We saw many different kinds of wildlife including birds, crabs and snails. We did not see any dolphins though - maybe next time. We loved seeing all the boats too. Overall it was a great walk! My daughter... More

I've been to Charleston & Shem Creek many times but never took time to check out this park. What a wonderful adventure! You have to visit to fully understand what it is and what you see while walking there. We were there at sunset & it's spectacular! Search it out & visit. Good restaurants are abundant there as well.

There are all kinds of interesting restaurants and other places in this area. Bought fresh local shrimp, checked out the boats and other watercraft, lovely view from restaurants. We want to explore this area again!
