Getting to Congaree National Park
Driving to Congaree
Due to the park’s proximity to the major urban area of Columbia, there are a large number of possible routes. Most of them lead to I-77, so we give directions from there. Take exit 5 for SC-48 (Bluff Road) and follow it east for 14 miles. Turn right onto Mt. View Road for 0.8 miles, then turn right onto Old Bluff Road for 0.6 miles to the park entrance.
If you’d like to plot directions from your location use the interactive map below. The marker shows the location of the Harry Hampton Visitor Center in Congaree.
