We visited this park on a Sunday in February. The park doesn't open till 1 pm on Sunday and we got there about 2. So let me say this first, the Rating on the Tree itself is 5. It is a spectacular specimen and well worth seeing. My rating of 3 is based on the fact that the park is... More

The tree is just amazing to see in person, pictures do not do it justice. Gift shop was sparse but there is nothing else there in the middle of the woods.

Discovered this location through geocaching. Amazed to find such a wonderful ancient tree hidden on a back dirt road. The magic was electric when I spotted an albino squirrel!

Take your guests. Porta-potties, and some vending machines, available. No pets. No spiked heels. NO CLIMBING ON IT. This is a quick thing - maybe 15mins.

What a treasure this old oak tree is. So glad it is being preserved. Kudos to Charleston County for saving and maintaining this tree

Truly a wonderful site. Everyone would enjoy seeing this historic oak tree. No charge to park and is only slightly off main roads between Charleston and Kiawah Island. Children seem amazed! Don't miss it if you can help it.

According to experts this tree is anywhere from 500 to over 1000 years old and it is massive. It's pretty cool to see this marvel of nature.

This tree is absolutely amazing! The branches are the longest I've ever seen and the photos I got were awe-inspiring! Trouble is that they hire the most dismally rude staff to run the gift shop that I've ever seen in the Carolinas. The woman in the shop was screaming at people throughout our visit about the most insane things, and... More
