Breathtaking views at this park! Definitely a must see hidden gem. The day we went it was chilling, however the views made up for the cold.

Wonderful waterway where you can view dolphins up and down the creek, paddle boarders and canoers moseying along. Nautical scenery for just enjoying the summer breeze! no need to do anything but just be there and watch all the beauty of a little known place.

Good playground for kids. Good fishing pier. Nice place for a walk. If you want a longer walk, walk the bridge to Charleston as well!

Lovely rocking chairs with a nice view to rest after you've walked on the wooden bridge over Shem's Creek. I ate my lunch here. The rest room was clean and parking spacious. Enjoyed my visit!

The walk is on piers and it's a nice park. They have nice bathrooms. It's fun watching boats come in. There were lots of couples walking dogs. It's just a wonderful place to walk and look at everything.

The Hungry Detective enjoys this little slice of heaven on Sundays in particular. Sit by the water or go for a walk and explore all the boats and wildlife on the water!!! VERDICT: A must stop when your in the area.

We happen to hit the park right as the sun was setting and it was beautiful and it was not even crowded. It is a nice little walking raised platform over the marsh and along the water, great for kids.

This is a must see when visiting the Charleston area. Having lived here, it was always good go to walking spot. There are always people fishing along here. We have seen dolphins from time to time. In addition, the pelicans are always looking for food...More

10 minutes from downtown, take the Ravenel bridge and Shem Creek is right where Vickerys, Reds, the Shelter and other restaurants are.

There might be places to crab in the Charleston area but not right on Shem Creek near the hotel. The best source for that information would be South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.
