Edisto Beach State Park, located on a remote sea island rich in Native American history, was originally developed in the 1930's by the Civilian Conservation Corps. A variety of shells dot the 1.5 mile beach and some of the tallest palmetto trees in the state can be seen throughout the park and Edisto Island.

This 1,255-acre park includes a dense maritime forest and an expansive salt marsh where visitors can explore the wonders of nature. The park offers a day-use area for beach access and a four-mile nature trail that winds through the maritime forest with beautiful vistas overlooking the salt marsh.

For overnight guests the park offers vacation cabins and a campground.

Nature Programs
With the theme "Choosing to Protect Our Coast," the Edisto Interpretive Center helps promote the wise use of coastal resources. It is headquarters for Edisto Beach State Park's interpretive programs and curriculum-based field studies, and for the S.C. Department of Natural Resources' education and research services. An exhibit in the center features interactive displays, including a touch tank, which helps visitors understand the fragile resources of the ACE Basin estuarine reserve, the largest such natural reserve on the East Coast.
Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
November 3 not a friendly place to go
We were told bad directions by the guard attendant. Mosquittos so bad we could not go outside, far from anything to do in Charleston
September 2 favorite place for a vacation by zackspopper
one of the most beautiful and relaxing places on earth the best kept secert in south carolina the beach is large and flat and a great place to gather shells just to sit and watch the sunrise it gets no better then here
June 24 One of Our Favorite Places by pharris927
My first time there on vacation in june 2008. Stayed in a 3 bedroom cabin. Loved it! Great shops. Loved looking for sea shells. The beach was little crowed for my liking. The only grocery store is the Piggly Wiggly, and the prices are sky high they should be ashamed. No Mcdonalds are anything like that, but with the cabin I cooked our meals. Went to someplace new this year in Florida & was not happy. Will be returning for june 2010 to the cabin.
