Located in the heart of the South Carolina low-country between Columbia and Charleston, Four Holes Swamp is a 45,000-acre matrix of black water sloughs and lakes, shallow bottomland hardwoods, and deep Bald cypress and Tupelo Gum flats. Four Holes Swamp is a major tributary of the Edisto River. Over 15,000 of those acres are owned by the National Audubon Society and make up what is known as the Francis Beidler Forest. The Beidler Forest is located just north of I-26 outside the town of Harleyville, SC and can be accessed from either I-26 west or east. The visitor center is open 9am – 5pm, Tuesday – Sunday (closed Mondays and some holidays).
