Our history is so valuable. We visit places like this to realise the sacrifices made to give us our freedom and form a more perfect union. A well preserved battle field. This site deserves a visit. This corridor of South Carolina and Georgia bleed the history of the war.

Great hidden historic civil war park in a beautiful swampy area. The site is way off the beaten path, but worth it for history buffs. Beware of the mosquitoes though. It is an easy path that loops around. Would be good for kids and pets.

This is a great place to walk and enjoy the nature. Dogs love it also! You need to be aware of the weather due to the bugs and mosquitoes. The area is dense with trees and marsh. Sometimes alot of standing water, so hve your bug spray ready!

Excellent picnic areas, well maintained facilities and interesting displays should mean this park is busy, but it's location makes it tough for some folks. The staff was very friendly, even the groundskeeper had a wealth of information about the park.

I admit that I consider the southwest corner of South Carolina (excluding the coast) to be sort of the end of the universe. A place I had never, ever gone out of my way to visit before. But in our quest to hit the state parks this year, and because we needed to be in Mount Pleasant, we took the... More

Lots of history here- We visited as a family on a warm day. Nice trails to see. Sort of off the beaten path but follow the signs to get there.

Interesting Civil War battleground. Trails and markers well maintained. The markers were very easy to locate and provided adequate information. Would have liked to have had a map to use.

This small park interprets and preserves a small battlefield. But, the story is a large one and the site is pristine. No visitor center but an excellent self-guided trail that well explains the battle. It's off the beaten path but certainly worth making a detour if you are interested in Civil War history.

Although this park is off the beaten track, for those who are history or War Between the States buff, this is a place you need to visit. There are several earthen fortifications which remains just like they were used in the 1865 battle. I went early in the morning before the heat on a Wednesday; had the whole park to... More

Driving between Asheville and Savannah, we wanted to find some out of the way historical sites. Rivers Bridge did not disappoint. We visited on a Thursday in March, and were the only ones at the site for our entire visit. There is a well marked trail with excellent signage, so it was easy to navigate and interpret the site on... More
