Getting to Congaree National Park
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.
Below you will find an interactive map showing the location of the Harry Hampton Visitor Center in Congaree. Following this are the official park maps provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file or a simple JPEG image file (some of these files can be quite large). The map links will open in a new tab.
Below you will find a list of airports most convenient for a trip to Congaree, listed in order of distance. For each airport we give useful links for further information on the airport, as well as flight and rental car bookings. These links already have the destination airport selected for your convenience. For price searches, simply enter your origin and dates.
