    I'd say that the Congaree National Park is one of the best places for wilderness hiking and camping in South Carolina.

    Congaree National Park boasts gigantic trees, and so much wildlife like wild birds, bobcats, and black bears. There is also a river flowing through the park, so you'll get a chance to explore the park by canoe or kayak.

    Having said this, there are no rental facilities at the park, so you will have to rent equipment elsewhere or bring your own boats. On the bright side, you can also arrange a guided canoe tour with a park guide if you wish to.
