Shelling!

Great shells with an easy access. They were starting refurbishing of the beach while we were there due to the hurricane but we were able to still access

This was our first visit to the area. The ocean campground is closed but the beach parking lot and picnic area is open. There are miles of heavy machinery along the beach working around the clock to restore sand after the hurricane. The beach itself cannot be accessed in front of or to the right of the picnic area. There... More

I camped here in February 2017 the ocean front campground is still closed , due to the storm damage from last fall. I stayed in the back part which is about half a mile down from the beach and sits along side a marsh. The campsites were quite large and shaded. The bathhouse was very large and extremely clean and... More

Great beach to walk, short but had lots of shells. It is recovering from Hurricane Matthew. If I got up early and went I might find something unusual. Out of State $15

We were there for 5 nights between Christmas and New Years. Very quiet place. Most of the sites are pretty good. We stayed in the Live Oak area. You can hear the ocean waves at night. But some of the sites get some road noise in 87-94. Bath house was very clean and "warm", which was nice for our time... More

We were really surprised by how nice it was and what a short walk up the beach did to give you great privacy. It's a really nice swimming beach....great visit.

...with your honey, holding hands of course :) My wife and I were on a delayed honeymoon trip, with another couple traveling with us. Water was a little too cool for her to swim, but great for walking along the edge of the surf. Shells galore if you are a collector. Park admission is $5 per adult. But there is... More

If you enjoy long strolls along the beach looking for sea shells, Edisto is the place for you. Park at the state park, walk out to the beach, turn left and enjoy! Paved parking, clean restrooms and picnic tables are a plus!

I love this park! There are plenty of picnic areas with grills, clean bathrooms, and outside shower and a couple of changing rooms. When I went in September, the beach was not crowded at all, at some times nearly deserted. It was so beautiful. I didn't go to the campground, so I don't know how that is, but the rest... More
