A beautiful spot with camping area and lots of picnic tables. There is also a Porta-potty! There are 3 big lakes and a wildflower garden on the property. We saw lots of birds. Drive slowly and leave a donation.

Beautiful forest, great walking trails, all clearly marked and there are maps at the entrance. The boardwalks are nice. There are short trails and longer ones too. Minimum 1.5hrs here at a leisurely pace.

Tripadvisor does not show this new restaurant on the ocean in Sea Pines. Open about a year ago you can have lunch overlooking the ocean. We have an excellent lunch, service is friendly and the food very good.

Great place to relax. Tons of trails that are off limits to bikes. Personally I like the boardwalk trail that goes over the marshes. Make sure to check out the Indian shellring as well. Tons of wildlife...we almost always see alligators. A must see on a visit to Sea Pines!

This beautiful Preserve is well hidden unless you go looking for it. It has two lakes, a wildflower meadow which is gorgeous in spring, picnic areas, trails, great bird watching or just peace and quiet to sit and read a book.

Good way to spend an afternoon. We saw a lot of gators and birds. Maps are available and are easy to follow. I recommend bug spray...

The entrance was tricky to find as it is hidden in plain view just after entering Sea Pines. Natural setting with lots of wild life. We saw gators, birds, fish and a snake off the protected boardwalk. The Indian Shell Circle was interesting but not essential to a relaxing hike
