We love finding those special places where our RV rental clients can relax in the beauty of nature. One such place is South Carolina’s Edisto Beach State Park. Whether you camp on the ocean or along a scenic salt marsh, an RV journey to Edisto Beach can be delightfully healing.

Traveling from the Intercoastal Waterway to South Carolina’s coast can be an awesome beginning to your trip. Edisto Beach Scenic Byway, otherwise known as SC-174, leads the way from the much-photographed Dawhoo (McKinley Washington, Jr) Bridge to Edisto Beach and the mysteries of the Lowcountry. This byway leads RV travelers past farms, marshes and plantations, with the scent of salt air becoming stronger by the minute. Treat yourself to the incomparable splendor of Edisto Beach Scenic Byway as the first stage of your South Carolina RV camping vacation.

Crossing the island, you’ll find Edisto Beach State Park on the island’s eastern shore, wrapped around the village of Edisto Beach. No crowded beachfront here; the entire island is dedicated to maintaining a peaceful, laid back atmosphere.

This oceanside state park greets visitors with an excellent interpretive center that educates about the island’s Native American history, the development of agriculture in the area and the efforts to preserve the unique environment of Edisto Island.

Camping at one of Edisto Beach State Park’s two campgrounds will make your visit even more enjoyable. The state park’s campsites are both affordable and convenient to plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities, year-round.

The warm summer months mean swimming in the waves and enjoying the crabbing for which the island is famous. Edisto’s mild winters allow RV campers to hike, bike and watch for a wonderful variety of wildlife along the interpretive trails. Venture beyond the boundaries of the state park and you’ll find Edisto Island Serpentarium in the village of Edisto Beach. Home to snakes and reptiles native to the island, it’s a fascinating way to spend an afternoon.

If you like surf fishing, Edisto Beach State Park is also an excellent playground. Edisto Island also offers excellent river fishing, especially along the north and south branches of the Edisto River. Charter a fishing guide while on the island; all you’ll need to bring is your sense of adventure!

Speaking of outdoor adventures, we need to share one more tip; kayaking the waterways surrounding Edisto Beach State Park will challenge your talents and allow you to bring back some pretty exciting vacation memories.

In winter or summer, Edisto Beach State Park opens the door to a coastal RV adventure you’ll long remember. We encourage our RV camping friends to consider a trip soon to Edisto Island. Talk to our staff;  we’ve got the RV rental you’ll need to thoroughly enjoy your camping trip to the South Carolina coast.
