Roads are not as bad as others have indicated - greatly improved in last year. Prices have gone up a lot in the past year but our site was merely yards away from the surf. Staff mostly helpful and friendly. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Cabin.

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. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

First time to visit this park. We will definitely be back. Loved Edisto Beach and the park is beautiful. Lots of trees for privacy, sites are spacious with water & electric hookup. Ocean on one side and marsh in the other--beautiful sunset over the marsh and sunrise over the ocean. Beach was nice, with piles of shells. Rangers were very helpful during check-in. People were very friendly--lots of families. Dogs are allowed on the beach, which is great. This is now one of our favorite parks. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

There are several nice restaurants in town, and the Sea Cow Eatery serves an excellent breakfast. Grocery shopping is limited to a small Bi-Lo market and a couple of gas station convenience stores, so come prepared.

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. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

There are two campgrounds, one in the woods and one at the beach. For us it is all about the beach, however, we do enjoy staying with friends at the woods campground. Many have ample shading and we always have a great time here.

The bad is the beach campground road. Terrible. Needs packed gravel not more dirt. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A few cute shops and restaurants on Edisto, Charleston is about 45 minutes away.

Do not drink the water, it is salty and will ruin your morning coffee. We always got to Edisto w a full tank of fresh water. There is one location that I understand you can get fresh water. Make sure you take containers to carry water in. We try to bring everything we need with us, however, the Bi Lo is very convenient, right across from the campground.

If you love the beach,Edisto Beach State Park is the place to camp.The staff is friendly and very helpful.The sites are always clean and everyone there works to see that you have a good time.

The beach is clean and natural. If you love shelling then it's Edisto all the way.

We have camped there in winter,spring,and summer and we are always pleased with our stay.

The Park provides many activities such as turtle watching and the Nature Center is informative.Some one is always there to answer any questions you might have.

Can't wait to get back to Edisto State Park. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed on the beach loop with a wonderful ocean view out our coach windows over the sand dunes. We parked backwards on our site to get the best view. As others have said, the road into the campground is badly pot-holed, and the water supply is virtually undrinkable due to the salinity. We had a good supply in our tank, so it was not a problem for us. The primary advantage of the park is the ocean front location of course, and the proximity to the beach town right outside the park gate makes grocery runs to the Bi-Lo and meals out at one of several nearby restaurants an easy 10 minute trip at most. You can walk for miles on the beach, but be aware of the high tide times. We did not use the bathroom or shower facilities, but the building does look somewhat dated and in need of maintenance. The campground hosts were very pleasant and helpful. Verizon voice and data was strong and solid, and the Charleston TV stations were within reach of our antenna. We also had a clear view for our Dish satellite service. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Sea Cow Eatery is a quaint little restaurant that seems to be popular with the locals. Breakfast there was particularly good, if a bit pricey. The Bi-Lo market carries a good line of typical grocery and household products, and the prices are quite reasonable for the most part, considering the nearly captive market they serve.

What a great SP! I was on the beach loop and was literally about 70 yards from the beach. Basically all the sites are that close, if you're on the beach loop. The site was level, combination of gravel and shell with a fire pit and picnic table that backed up to a protected marsh. The 30 amp worked as it should. I am winterized and did not use the water. Park host and Park Ranger's were extremely hospitable and they went out of their way to offer a ride to the other loop to view the park store since. Just a great bunch of people at this SP! ATT cell and data worked great, WiFi is only available at the ranger office. I will return! We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Local shops for area clothing, restaurant bars if you're not into cooking out at your site under the stars are within walking distance, no corporate shops in site (and that's great)! Get up early for one of the best sunrises you've seen and a lot of sea shells.

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.

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.

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.

This was our first camp experience so we rented a travel trailer and they brought it and set it up for us. However, I would agree with other reviews that the roads leading into the "Live Oak" section have big potholes. However, other than the salty tasting water, the grounds were very clean. The bath house was clean as well. We were there 4 days and saw volunteers throughout our stay raking sites and keeping things neat and clean. The proximity to the trails was great. We did drive the 1/2 mile to the beach, but that was fine. Very shady with big southern mossy trees! We can't wait to go back again! We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

There is a Bilo grocery store nearby and a pizza place called Bucks with awesome pizza!

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.

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.

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.
