Only five minutes from I-95, this 35-acre park was originally built as a wayside park in the 1930's by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Campers, fishermen, canoeists and other outdoor enthusiasts enjoy the peaceful and relaxing blackwaters of the Edisto River.

Colleton is on a portion of the river that has been designated as an official canoe and kayak trail, which carries paddlers into a rare, natural world of wildlife and scenic beauty.

The park hosts the Edisto Riverfest, an annual weekend festival held in June, which offers numerous guided canoe trips, educational programs, workshops, exhibits and music. Guests also have the opportunity to camp, hike or picnic in this scenic regional park.
History of the Area
Colleton State Park was developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), a New Deal Program created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The program was designed to provide employment during the Great Depression while addressing national needs in conservation and recreation.

The CCC was instrumental in the development of many of South Carolina's state parks. A number of buildings built by the CCC in the 1930's are still in use at this park.
South Carolina offers a variety of Park Passports. You can read more about the South Carolina Park Passports and order online by visiting the SOUTH CAROLINA PARK PASSPORTS web page.
