Second vote for Congaree. I did the loop hike with my son and camped just off the river. We ate dinner on a sand bar, and in the morning that sand bar was COVERED in animal tracks...heron, coon, boar, etc. Yeah...the boars...they've tilled up the area and I could hear one rooting around at night. Never actually saw one though, and didn't have any issues other than getting up at 2am to see how close he was to camp. Definitely a neat trip.
Which reminds me...I need to post that one on my trip reports page.
