Edisto Beach State Park has suffered major effects from Hurricane Irma. The oceanfront campground was flooded by storm surge on the marsh side, and saltwater infiltrated and severely damaged the electrical system. The Live Oak campground is littered with downed trees and limbs after Irma, and a tornado associated with it, damaged the area.   

In order for us to clean up and make repairs to both campgrounds, they will be closed for the remainder of the 2017 calendar year. The day-use area (with beach access) and cabin area of Edisto Beach State Park will reopen on September 22. If you have camping reservations between now and the end of 2017, you will be contacted and a full refund issued. Any cabin reservations affected will also be refunded. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

Rich in Native American history, Edisto Beach on Edisto Island is one of four oceanfront state parks in South Carolina.

Edisto Beach State Park features trails for hiking and biking that provide a wonderful tour of the park. The park’s environmental education center is a “green” building with exhibits that highlight the natural history of Edisto Island and the surrounding ACE Basin.

For overnight accommodations, furnished cabins sit nestled in the woods, and campsites can be found along the Edisto Island oceanfront or in the shaded maritime forest.
