Angel Oak Tree

The Angel Oak -- an amazing 400 year old oak tree.

[Ryan Welch, 02/18/2020]
Angel Oak

Overrated. No marked roads. No tripods. No dogs. No clean bathrooms. Overpriced, unimpressive gift shop. You will spend 15 minutes here, tops.

[Unimpressed, 04/01/2019]

We're sorry for your lousy visit, but we have to admit that any tree meriting its own bathrooms, gift shop, and human servants sounds weirdly interesting.

The Angel Oak

Turned up 9:30am Sunday and it was closed. Can "just" see it from the road through cyclone fencing. Open Monday-Saturday 9-5 and Sunday 1-5.

Very cool, old tree. Pack a lunch and eat at the nearby picnic tables.

The Angel Oak is a sight to see. Just make sure to get there before five, because they do lock the gate.
