Due to the low river level, there are no canoe rentals on the Edisto River at this time. Park visitors are still welcome to canoe on the lakes and ponds at the park. Contact the park directly for more information.
South Carolina State Parks
Located in Aiken County, Aiken State Park sits nestled along the South Edisto River
in an outdoor-lover’s paradise. Aiken’s most notable attraction is the still, black water of the South Edisto River - fishing and canoeing are both popular here. A 1.7-mile canoe and kayak trail winds down the South Fork of the Edisto River. Fishing for bream, bass and catfish can be enjoyed from along the bank.
Aiken State Park is also as rich in its history as it is natural beauty. During the Great Depression, an African American detachment of the Civilian Conservation Corps built the park. Their work can still be seen in some of the remaining structures as well as interpretive signage.
