We spent Halloween on the beach tent camping this year - this campground has dunes protecting you from the wind, but you can still hear the waves crashing in the distance it's so close to the beach! Perfect time of year to be here - mild temps and low bug population. Marsh view provided the most spacious site (can't remember the # but it's hard to pick a bad spot here). The dogs loved it and so did we :) We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Tent.

Tips for other Campers:

Fish, swim, paddle board, bike ride or hike the boardwalk after a short drive inland, or just walk/run the beaches - or you can just kick back, there's plenty of shade to laze away the day.

You're at the beach, other than that there is no draw. The bath houses are outdated. The interior, dirt roads are terrible. You cannot drink the water because of the salinity; had to supply own drinking/cooking water. Even bathing in it left a slimy after-feeling. There are no sewer hookups and you have to leave the park to use the dump station, which was about 1/2 mile away. I understand the fees are going up to $41 per night in November. The amenities do not match the price charged. There are better parks available, some putting you on the beach, in SC; around Charleston (St James Island) and Beaufort (Hunting Island State Park also on the beach) offer a better stay. Will not return to this park because the others are available. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Grocery shopping on the island is limited to one store, BiLo.

We camped here over Labor Day weekend. We were on the Beach Campground. We arrived after dark and beware the gate is locked and the office will give you a pass code to open the gate. The entrance was very difficult to find in the dark and the gate not lit at all. The road in the beach campground was just gravel so it was dusty. The nicest thing was the beach is right there! We have never stayed so close to the beach from our campsite. The park is pet friendly and dogs can go on the beach at any time! The restrooms in the beach campground are not updated and they are horrendous! The showers were backing up so only one shower was working which made for a long line. We really cannot recommend any good restaurants. Seacow was not very good and pricey. McConkey's was a little better but fried greasy food. Not much to do in the area but so nice to relax. We would come again and hope that the restrooms get updated soon! We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beach and marsh accessible park about 25 miles off the main hwy 17 about 40 miles from Charleston. It is very laid back and rustic. The bathroom building is new and in very good condition. If you don't like salty tasting water that imparts its salty flavor to your tea or coffee, bring you own drinking water or plan to bring it. Remember that is the same for ice cubes as well. Having said that, the sites in the Oaks area are fairly private. There is 50 amp available which is not at the Ocean campground--they only have 30 amp. No sites are concrete, but are fairly level. The big downfall is that the roads in and out are not being maintained AT ALL. There are potholes so big that we are hesitant to drive our rig through--it might just disappear. If you like your vehicle and rig a rockin' and a rollin' you will love this campground. It rained 2 of the 3 nights we were here and the mudholes were so deep that they held water the entire time. These roads need a lot of work. We will not come back. There are parks that are closer in to Charleston that are no more expensive and are in a lot better shape for campers. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

This park has some positive attributes, but more negatives for us. We stayed in the beach campground and not the one in the trees. The good points are the size of the sites, the proximity to the beach is close, and the utilities work well. The negatives include the really bad pot holed roads. Many holes are nearly the width of the whole road. When it rains like it did during our stay all the roads turn into a muddy mess. There is one trash bin all the way at the entry road into the park. It is quite a hike from most everywhere. The dump station for the park is not close to the park itself. It is out the front gate and down the road about 3/4 of a mile. This eliminates the ability to use a sewer tote for gray water dumping. Also the "love bugs" were swarming during our stay. While they don't bite, they are mating and are covering every surface. However the biggest drawback this park has, I was surprised that it hadn't been mentioned before. The drinking water here is literally undrinkable do to high levels of salt and minerals in the ground water. The water is bad for your appliances, and can't even be used to water plants or wash a vehicle. Bottled water is a must to stay here, and the local store sells out regularly. The citizens of Edisto voted down a Reverse Osmosis System that would have made the water usable. So if you plan to come here, bring your own drinking water. We also had difficulty driving our rig to the park due to lack of maintenance of the many overhanging trees and shrubs along highway 17 and 174. We are not looking forward to leaving and taking the same roads back out. I will not stay here again. Too many negatives for us. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

We were not able to get a site in the beach area, so we booked a spot in the Live Oaks section. DO NOT STAY THERE!! It is an over grown brushy area that has dusty dirty ground and is a mosquito haven! Also, we were not greeted in a very friendly way. We arrived early, check-in is at 2:00 & the volunteer sent us to the boat landing to wait. After finding the landing, the volunteer there, who was super nice, asked "Why didn't she send you to the beach instead?" To which I replied, "Where is the beach?" She asked if the other volunteer gave us a map. I said no, all she gave us was the "heave-ho", get out. So, the nice girl gave us directions to the beach to wait. All this time we were hauling a 5th wheel around. Not a pleasant experience. When we finally checked in at the campsite, I suggested that she send people to the beach in the future instead of the campground and she, matter of factually replied that she was just doing what she was told. We couldn't sit outside because the mosquitoes were so thick. When we left, I felt like I had been eating dust just from folding up the patio mat. Definitely not a pleasant experience. We will never stay there again. We have stayed in a few state parks in different states and, maybe it's just us but we've found them to be less accommodating than private rv parks. We will try to avoid them in the future. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Only bad thing I can say about this campground is the road into the ocean side campground is pretty rough, but you really shouldn't be driving that fast now should you? Bi-Lo grocery across the street, two restaurants nearby (we loved the Seacow), level sites, ocean right over the dunes, What's not to like! We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We camped in the beach campground. The entrance/check is on the left, across from a Piggly Wiggly grocery store (very convenient even walking). All campground roads are gravel and if not kept up could be full of ruts and pot holes, but in our recent stay, it was in great shape. There are 74 sites in this campground and another 51 in the live oak campground about 1 mile inland. The beach campground has an assortment of sunny/shady/partial shade campsites. During our recent 3 day stay we noticed the ranger was constantly driving around and the cleanup personnel were taking care of dropped palm fronds and cleaning each site as it was vacated. The restrooms were clean, heated, and with lots of hot water in the showers. Very easy beach access from any campsite. Lots of very friendly people during our stay. Lots of large dogs and for what we could tell, all were well behaved. Had 3 bars on my Verizon data access on my iPad. The RV dump site is not at either campground. As you leave Edisto Beach driving inland, the dump is 100 yds past the live oak campground on the right. This is a very popular campground so you must plan early, but it is well worth it. We look forward to our next visit. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

This review pertains mostly to the beach campground (there are two that are part of this state park). Large sites, many with adequate shade. Mostly level or near level sites. Heavy rains makes a few sites very, very muddy and wet (this is the low country of SC!) but most are elevated enough so that is not a big problem. Campground roads are not paved and maintaining them is an ongoing problem. Ranger station is located at entrance to Live Oaks part of the park where one must register and then through it to reach Beach campground. Sites in Live Oaks section seemed smaller and tighter than those closer to the ocean. Entrance road to register is HORRIBLE and really needs to be paved. There is a grocery store right across the street from the Beach campground and hardware store in nearby. Not much to do if one is not into the ocean in Edisto Beach, but found 2 small restaurants with good food (McConkeys and The Sea Cow). McConkeys is right behind grocery store and within walking distance of the campground. Great Shrimp Burgers!!! Rating reflects how this compares to other similar parks (as in State Parks without all the frills). For what it is, an excellent choice. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice area. The Piggly-Wiggly grocery store was within walking distance of our site. Lots of hiking/biking trails to enjoy. Our favorite part was that the beach on the city side of the pier was dog friendly (in the off-season). So, our little corgi dog could run free. Looking forward to returning in the early spring.

My family has been coming to this park for years, and it is a very popular park. I was a little confused where to register as you have to go to Live Oaks park first as it's now part of the state park. It's a great state park, but the roads leading into the park are terrible after it rains. As popular as this park is one would think they could do a better job maintaining the roads.

The lot size was very large and backed right up to the marsh. We had a fire pit, beautiful trees, and lots of shade. The kids had plenty of room to ride their bikes. This is definitely a true family friendly campground. We had a wonderful experience and will definitely camp here again. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Edisto has two sections for camping. The oceanfront section was full so we had to say in the Pine section. This was nice but of course the ocean area would have been better. The beach park area itself had been hit pretty hard by the waves from Hurricane Irene. The beach had a lot of erosion with exposed rebar in areas. The area close to the camping was not as beaten up. The site we had was large and easy to back into. The water at our site did not taste all that great so we used our water tank water for that. The mosquitoes were particularly bad in the pine area too. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderful in every respect. Super park with quiet, peaceful surroundings. Bathhouse/restrooms were virtually NEW. This is a fantastic destination- our only regret was we could only stay the one night. Definitely be back. Some parts of the road were a little tight and some sites appeared tight; however, we had a 42 ft motorhome right next to us. Big rig access - yes.

Great state park right on the beach. We had one of the few shaded sites at this park. Most are out in the open unless you are in a tent or a smaller unit. This is a great place to stay. With a short walk over the dunes, you are on the beach. The beach was not crowded. People were friendly and the facilities were clean. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
