Dingle Pond is a not a man-made pond as you might expect. It is a Carolina Bay whose origin is a mystery. This is the smallest unit of the Santee National Wildlife Refuge. A short hiking trail runs beside this pond, with a raised platform next to it which provides some wonderful views.

How to Get There

  • These directions will be a bit confusing, because of the strange way the roads are named and numbered. Take I-95 to exit #102, then go southeast on road #400 about 700 feet (200 meters). Turn left here, and you will be on Dingle Pond Road (#400). Go northeast on this road 0.5 miles (0.8 km.) and turn right. This road is still called Dingle Pond Road (#400). Go southeast and look for a small parking area on the right side of the road.
