“The Indian Mound is a must see!! Great combo of nature/history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

This is a great reserve with many trails to walk. You can see gators, snakes birds and other great animals. There is a really good visitors center with friendly staff. The reason I went=the Santee Indian mound. Constructed sometime between 1200 to 1400 AD, and also serving as British Fort Watson during the Revolutionary War, it still stands and looks great. you can take steps to the top for a great view of Lake Marion. The reserve is right next to I-95. you can't see it, and it's FREE!! Go take your family for some graet nature walks, learn history and have a picnic! Enjoy, i did!!
