Berkeley County

Map of Berkeley County

There is the derring-do of Francis Marion, known as the Swamp Fox, who eluded the British in the swampy woodlands that is now Francis Marion National Forest. Those on in search of transporting sojourns should venture to the majestic Moncks Corner for its Cypress Gardens and Mepkin Abbey, a Trappist monastery open to all. Elsewhere, picturesque cycling is a must along Wannamaker North Trail, and golfers will glory in Goose Creek’s popular Crowfield Golf Club.
