Edisto Beach State Park

Edisto Beach State Park perfectly captures the unspoiled natural beauty of the area. There’s no roughing it here; it’s too perfect for that.


The park is situated neatly between a saltmarsh and the beach making it possible to hear the waves lapping at the shore regardless of whether you’re staying in a tent, motor home, or cabin. Located in the town of Edisto Beach, it’s just a short walk or bike ride from the grocery store, gas station, restaurants and shops.


There are seven cabins located in the park. Five of the cabins are one-bedroom units while the other two are three-bedroom units. All of the cabins are completely furnished and feature heating and air conditioning, bath and bed linens, basic cooking and eating utensils, a microwave, coffee maker, and television. Each cabin also has a screened-in porch so visitors can enjoy the sights and sounds of Edisto Beach.


Pure camping enthusiasts will appreciate the vast amount of camp sites on the property. There are 64 oceanside sites and 33 sites along the saltmarsh perfect for rv or tent camping. There is also a restroom and showering facility on the premises.


Overnight guests and day visitors can make use of the park’s two picnic shelters, playground equipment, and natural fun offered by the beach. Visit the Environmental Learning Center on the site for a chance to learn more about the area and to sign up for Loggerhead turtle walks during the nesting season.
