With a vibrant landscape rich in Native American history, Edisto Beach State Park, located on Edisto Island, is one of just four oceanfront South Carolina State Parks and makes a great place for camping near Charlseton. At 1,255 acres in size, the park showcases a massive network of trails for hiking and biking that naturally draw you through a planned nature tour of the area’s delights. Furthermore, the park’s eco-friendly environmental education center exhibits and highlights the natural geographic history of Edisto Island, as well as the surrounding ACE Basin. If you have even a slight interest in the region, don’t skip the education center. Not only is the staff amazing, the center will teach you all about the area, utilizing interactive displays like a touch tank, as well as plenty of information on trails and attractions nearby. There’s even live sea life, which is great if you’re bringing the family along. After you’ve fully absorbed all the knowledge you can cram in, go unwind and launch a boat into Big Bay Creek. While you’re at it, enjoy a day of fishing out on the deep blue waters of the Basin. If you’d rather fish from shore, Cast a line and enjoy some of the island’s best fishing in Scott Creek Inlet. To finish off your night, wind down with a mellow stroll along the 1.5-mile, palmetto-lined beach, famed for its romantic sunsets and seashell spotted beaches. The next morning, spend some time on California’s longest wheelchair-accessible trail network, which is great for hiking and biking as well. Don’t forget to host a picnic and view some of the state’s tallest palmetto trees along the nearby flourishing wetlands. While it is hard knowing they’ll miss out, pets are not allowed in the cabins or the cabin areas. However, your four legged friends are allowed in most other outdoor areas as long as they’re on-leash and behaved. Owners will be asked to remove noisy or dangerous pets, as well as those that might threaten or harass wildlife. For overnight accommodations, furnished cabins sit nestled in the woods for rent, as well as campsites which can be found along the Edisto Island oceanfront or in the shaded maritime forest. Wifi is also available in select areas, as well as bathrooms, showers, and electrical hookups in most campsites. In fact, 120 sites can accommodate RVs or tents, with 115 sites offering 50 amp electrical service.
