More than a tree. More like an alien life form come to earth. Stunningly picturesque. We were lucky that the ferns that grow on the branches were out when we visited. Apparently that only happens in certain climate conditions. Looks really cool.

This Oak tree is just incredible in its size and beautiful. You cannot help but be awed by it's size. Pictures don't do the tree justice! Very easy walk from parking area. Picnic benches and outhouses too. Well worth a visit.

The tree is the only thing to see. A 5-10 minute stop is more than enough time to admire the tree and take some pictures.

If you're in Charleston you have to come see this. If you can, go right before they close - easy parking and no crowds. If you appreciate nature this will be mind-numbing.

If you are in the area, the Angel Oak Tree is well worth the visit. There are very few trees this magnificent.

This behemoth is an absolute must see. Other reviews describe the awesome scope of the gigantic Live Oak. Stats are easy to find. But think about it. When this tree sprouted, there was no America. From another perspective, there was a time when you could...More

So much history around this tree. This tree has witnessed so much! Great photo op spot. Must have reservations for photography sessions with professional photographers for weddings, portraits etc.

There's not much here but a very impressive live oak tree and a small gift shop. It is a nice shaded, peaceful place worthy of a detour on the way to or from Kiawah or Seabrook Island.

And be warned: the tree has 'hours' that it's open. So if you're planning to drive 2.5 hours, make sure you arrive when the gates are open, so you can walk around the tree. Otherwise you'll be stuck admiring it from afar... More
