We frequent Edisto Beach all summer long and decided a fall camping trip could offer a change of pace - we were right!
The campgrounds at Edisto were awesome! We stayed at one of the marsh front sites (no power no water).. it was incredible!
The trails were perfect for all 5 in our group.. adults and children. The views spectacular during the day and night!
This is a little gem we were literally driving past on the regular. I’m so happy we visited and have yet another reason to love Edisto!
Dreher Island was a great camping location! We stayed at tent sites 1&2 which was kind of like having our own private compound. If coming back again I would book tent sites 1-3 to claim the whole area! Other parts of the campgrounds seemed to be on top of each other and more sloped to access water. Access to the lake was a breeze from the site; easy to walk in the water and to get the kayaks in and out. Fishing was convenient from the shore. Bike riding was also great here although time did not allow for much of that this trip.
If interested in renting kayaks or paddle boards, I highly recommend Paddle South Outfitters. Travis was awesome and delivered kayaks right to the site and picked up too! Super nice guy!
Bathrooms were very clean and not a far walk from the campsite. Would stay beyond 2 nights next trip to explore more.
This was a timely escape for us just as COVID was spreading in the states. Unfortunately this prevented us from being able to rent kayaks. But the hiking was great! The camp sites were on the smaller side but opened up to a large field area where the kids and dog could run around and play. Shower and bathrooms were tidy and spacious too.
Hamilton Branch is amazing! The sites are all lakefront and generously sized. Plenty of paved roads for biking, and kayaking on the lake was absolute perfection! My only regret is not staying longer. Can’t wait for the next trip!
