  • This is the best attraction of Charleston. It’s really good to see how Charleston authorities have maintained this beautiful tree. Park opens at 1 PM on Saturday and Sunday. There is also a gift shop inside the park where you can find everything related to angel oak tree.
  • An absolute must see if you are in the Charleston area. It's an easy drive out James Island to John's Island. It's a small park with a gift shop that supports the tree. Be prepared to stand in the presence of greatness. I just had to lay a hand on this awesome tree but I really just wanted to hug it. Words can't describe this 400+ year old tree. You simply have to see it
  • The Angel Oak Tree is absolutely magnificent. Photos will never do it justice. If you're looking for a simple, yet enchanting experience that leaves you yearning for more, visit the Angel Oak. There is ample parking and signs make the site very easy to find. We will be back with any guests who appreciate the always powerful reminder that nature can leave us speechless... and with more questions than answers!
  • Ahhh. Yes. It is a big tree. Apparently big trees can get really big, provided no one cuts them down and at some point starts actively making sure they don’t die. In theory there’s no limit to the size of a tree (other than gravitational collapse) provided that it can get sufficient nutrients. Also this particular tree has hours which you should not ignore. However, even if you miss those hours, you can see it through a chain link fence. It’s a very big tree.
  • There are not many bells and whistles in this place but there is no need for it. The place is magically looking. It made me feel like I'm in some dream. It is a must see place if you are in Charleston area. It is free to visit. It is easy to find. There is a gift shop and porta potties. It is very interesting how good artist nature can be. And even better, this tree is a very good example of life. You fall down, but you get up and keep growing.
