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!

This is a nice spot to see nature and maybe start to walk off a big dinner from one of the nearby restaurants. When we visited close to sunset, the lighting was great for photos. There was a fairly steady flow of boat traffic on the creek and some dolphins passing through. Fishing appeared to be allowed at least from... More

This is a nice little spot for a stroll over the marsh. We loved watching the fiddler crabs along the way!

Wonderful place to stop. We went after dinner with out three children who had a great time spotting crabs in the marsh and then watching the dolphins in the creek. A wonderful place and so beautiful.

What a nice place to take a walk and enjoy the scenery. We happened upon this after eating at R.B.'s. We spent a long time just enjoying the water and the scenery.

Take a picnic with you and enjoy the stroll in this Shem Creek Park. You will get a super view of the fishing fleet boats. There is also a picnic area in the middle of this walking area. See the beautiful wildlife along the way.

I highly recommend you visit the park at sunset if beauty and serenity are what you seek. If on the lookout for a wide variety of sea birds, the occasional dolphin and shrimp boats...a daytime visit is best. Shem Creek opens to a panoramic view of the ocean which is reached by a walk along a raised boardwalk above sea... More
