Congaree Swamp National Park
Congaree Swamp National Park is home of large hardwood forest. It is the largest intact tract of old-growth bottomland hardwood forest remaining in the United States. Despite the word "Swamp" in its name, the park is more accurately described as a floodplain. A swamp contains water almost year-round, while a floodplain forest experiences wet and dry periods as the river that controls it rises and falls with seasonal rains.
Location: South Carolina, USA South East
