Congaree Tips

 Buy all of your supplies before you arrive, there are few stores in this area

 Beware of flash floods, this is a flood plain of the Congaree River.

 Biting insects are the rule, so bring plenty of repellant.

 Off trail hiking is not recommended because of the lack of landmarks.

There is an overpopulation of the Wild Boers, so be sure to be aware of them. They are not aggressive but do not approach any that have young.

Although there are not any bears here be sure to hang all food between two trees. There are plenty of other varmints vying for your food.

As always, all water must be treated before drinking.
