  • It is worth the trip out of Charleston to visit this colossal tree. We spent about an hour here, taking pictures and enjoying the shaded park. Tips - if you’re traveling out this way, visit Deep...  more »

  • The Angel Oak tree is truly a remarkable site to see but if I must be completely honest, don't plan your entire day around it. You could sit in the general area and enjoy your lunch, let the kids run around for a little bit but there is not much here to do other then take pictures of the tree and visit the gift shop. Admission is free and you don't have to go through the gift shop to go in and out of the park like you do at a lot of places. Parking is limited but because people are in and out so quickly there usually isn't much trouble finding a spot. If you do find there is no parking, circle the block or take a 3-5 min drive somewhere and come back; parking turn over is pretty quick. This is a nice place to stop before or after visiting Firefly Distillery or the Charleston Tea Plantation. Hope you enjoy it!
  • A true natural treasure! We only stopped by for about 20 minutes, but I could've easily spent an entire day there. The tree is phenomenal; pictures and words can not do justice. This is definitely something to check out if you're ever in the area!!!
  • Beautiful spot to take a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle. The tree is quite a wonder when you think about it living 400+ years through many storms and hurricanes. It has lost a few of its branches since I last visited about 20 years ago, but it still impresses and inspires. I hope to see it again in 20 years!
  • Beautiful tree!! I love trees, but wouldn't make a special trip to John's Island just for this amazing oak. It's truly a site to behold, but it's a short stop. You'll be in and out in about a half hour. My advice, go visit the Firefly distillery first. On your way back, stop by the Angel Oak for a few memorable pictures.
  • Largest oak tree I have ever seen. 400 years old. Interesting gentleman who quoted folklore, interesting facts and sang old spirituals. You won't spend a lot of time there but still an interesting place for great pictures.
