we had this tree described to us and it sounded very interesting, so we had to go see it. No photos of the tree will ever match seeing it in person. I heard they wanted to cut it down years ago and I can't imagine why. It's beautiful and a wonder to see.

Don't get me wrong it is a beautiful tree. But it is really just a stop along the way. Spent about 20mins. Enough time to get some pictures. Got there early to get some without tons of people in them.

It was so nice to be present with timeless beauty such as this oak. It was so easy to find and there are picnic tables and a little souvenir shop.

I have been visiting for 17 years, I never tire of showing our guests this amazing tree. Young children are amazed at its size although they really want to climb on it and that is not permitted! It's incredible!

The tree was awesome, but I wish the gift shop was a little more interesting. Not really a big thing to complain about so overall it was cool to go check out.

What a beautiful tree. Was a wonderful way to spend with my husband on our anniversary. It's an old tree that you imagine fairy tales come from. If you love mother natures Devine beauty and creativity it is a must see.

I've taken many visitors to see the Angel Oak and this time was so different because Geechie Joe was there telling his stories. The kids got an awesome history lesson and were able to admire the tree. Best experience yet. What I love about the Angel Oak is it's an easy and quick tourist destination so if you don't have...

Loved seeing the Angel Oak! It's a quick stop, parking is off the road and the tree is behind a fence. The gift shop is also pretty neat, so make sure and check in there before leaving.
