HOPKINS, S.C. (AP) - The Congaree National Park south of Columbia has reopened after the historic flooding earlier this month.

The park has been closed since Oct. 4 because of the flooding.

Officials say the flood waters are receding at the park.

The park encourages people to stop by the visitors’ center to determine the status of each of the trails in the park.

The park has the largest tract of old growth bottomland hardwood forest in the Southeast.
