Fodor's Expert Review Old Santee Canal Park

Moncks Corner Park/Playground

Four miles of boardwalks and unpaved paths take you through Biggin Swamp and along the last portion of the country's first true canal. An interpretive center details the history of the canal, which was used to transport goods from upstate South Carolina to the port of Charleston for the first half of the 19th century. The circa-1840 Stony Landing Plantation House is furnished with period reproductions, offering a glimpse into what a planter's secondary home might have been like in that era. Also on-site (and included in admission) is the Berkeley County Museum and Heritage Center, which tells the story of the county's cultural and natural history. Prefer to explore by boat? Rent a canoe and venture up the canal for $5 per half hour.
