Old Santee Canal State Park
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 4, 2014

Old Santee Canal State Park is nearly 200 acres of beautiful grounds and waterways. There are four miles of boardwalks through the surrounding swamp. The Stony Landing House, built in 1843, is located in the park and offers a glimpse of plantation life in the 1800s. Probably the most popular part of the park is the Interpretive Center. It contains a history of the area all the way back to 4000 B.C. Inside the center they have the story of the Confederate torpedo boat "Little David," which was used during the Civil War. Two theatres show films related to the history of the area and it's wildlife. Also located in the park is the Berkeley County Museum. This is one of my favorite places to visit in the park. There are lots of interesting artifacts inside the museum. Any time of year is a good time to visit the Old Santee Canal State Park.

What a great place to have so close to town! Even though we almost tipped the canoe, we had a great time. Very educational and peaceful!

I went there for a friend's wedding and it was beautiful. The ceremony was facing the lake and cocktails at the dock. dinner was under the house. Everything was perfect! I would definitely pick this location for a wedding ceremony/reception.

This small park has a nice interpretive center with good displays. The museum is really good and has a lot of items from the local history; and a nice gift shop with books etc.
The walk through the swamp is quiet and you can really see a lot of wildlife and even paddle a canoe around in the old Santee Canal.
