Recreation & Leisure

Old Santee Canal Park's 195 acres commemorate the rich history and habitat of Berkeley County. Four miles of boardwalks meander through the quiet backwaters of Biggin Creek and its surrounding swamp offering quiet glimpses of the flora and fauna. A three-mile paddle trail immerses you in a cypress swamp where alligators, wood ducks, turtles and ospreys flourish amid a thriving community of southern shield ferns and other native vegetation.
