Shem Creek is a wonderful place to go for lunch or dinner, do or observe water activities, and to enjoy the beautiful views and way of life on Shem Creek with all its charm.

We were staying at the Shem Creek Inn which is just across the parking lot from the park and stopped by here as an afterthought. It is lovely. Parking lot and restrooms safe and clean. The walkway was fantastic. I'm not sure how long it stretches but it goes a good distance more than we anticipated. You can catch a water taxi from here... something to check into if staying in Mt. Pleasant and wanted to scoot elsewhere by boat. We stayed on the creek side in our hotel and were able to walk far beyond the sightline we'd had from our balcony.

It's newly done and in great shape. It was quiet and a great way to safely check out the marsh and creek areas.

Be sure to take the new boardwalk out to the very end prior to sunset.. Watch the shadows and beautiful sunset covers over the shrimp boats docked in Shem Creek.

Didn't walk all the way to the end but spent some down time just enjoying the walkway and grasses. There were restrooms available and the area was clean and kept up. I did see a sign to follow to catch a water taxi but again did get to that area. No cost for the beautiful park area.
