Congaree National Park was authorized by Congress in 1976 to preserve the largest intact tract of old-growth bottomland hardwood forest remaining in the southestern United States.

Like each of its sister national parks, Congaree must balance the competing demands of its dual mission: providing for a fulfilling visitor experience and preserving the natural and cultural resources located here.
