Situated just outside of Charleston, the privately owned property is one of the largest privately protected reserves in the area. The Woodlands Nature Reserve is passionate about making the natural beauty and immersive outdoor experiences unique for its visitors in a way that honors the property by enriching both the land and those who experience it. We strive to accomplish this goal by pursuing best practices for the environment while establishing systems that make The Woodlands Nature Reserve financially sustainable. Through camping opportunities, weddings, public & private events, and an array of recreational activities, The Woodlands Nature Reserve is a place meant to inspire and evoke a deep sense of enjoyment for the natural outdoors.
