1 Park near Edisto Island, South Carolina
May 2016 - $50.00
We stayed in the Beach campground which is a narrow spit of land with campsites on it. Our site was on the "creek" side, so we saw the tides come in and recede feet from our front door. It was a great spot for nature watching! We did have a racoon visit our site each evening, so put your food away! The beach is a very, short walk away, and it is absolutely beautiful. Many, many shells on the sand. The campsite was a bit tight for our 30 foot rig. We only attached to electricity, having heeded other reviewers warnings about the water. We really liked this campground. Go to the Nature Center and take the hike to the Coastal Marker from 1850. The signage along the path and the marker itself were fascinating. - ShoreXplorers

The beach loop at Edisto offers a great view of the ocean from some sites, especially the ones right along the beach. The view out our front window was fantastic, and the beach access was only about 100' from our site. The winds are fairly constant, so keep that in mind when deploying awnings, etc. The sites are sand and sparse grass, typical of seashore most sites. The park work campers are constantly attending to sites as they become empty, cleaning out fire pits and raking the sand. The hookups are conveniently located, although hooking up to the water may not be a good idea. The water is fairly salty, although the town does treat it to make sure it's safe. There's a good water supply point nearby in town, where you can draw up to 5 gallons per day, or make sure you bring a good supply with you. The 30 amp electric at 120 volts was very stable. Our Verizon voice and data service was strong, and our open site made getting a satellite signal easy. The OTA TV signals from Charleston were also quite strong. We very much plan a return visit here in the future. - NYDutch

This is probably our sixth visit to Edisto and was not the best.
We got there after a big storm but it took them a couple of days to get some of the roads patched with gravel (piles of gravel were already there).
The site we were in (54) was not level. It wouldn't take much to level the site out.
Normally they have volunteers who clean the campsites up when people leave (we're paying $50/night and they still rely on volunteers?), and they do a great job. When there are no volunteers, the campsites are not cleaned as we found out. Someone in the site across from us departed and left a bag of trash and a bunch of other stuff in the fire pit (you have to pass the trash containers on the way out), so since there were no volunteers, the trash sat there for 2 days and when the next occupant got to the site they told the rangers and they sent someone to clean it up. Why can't the ranger or any of the workers that passed the site daily pick it up?
They installed wi-fi at the 2 bathrooms. The only problem is that they have a very limited range (like right around the bathroom). This is a great idea, but they need a more powerful transmitter/receiver.
Hopefully the next trip in the spring will be better. - jebgg
