Introduction of Colleton State Park

Get your rig on the road and head to South Carolina! Relax at Colleton State Park in South Carolina for a peaceful getaway. This 35-acre park in the Lowcountry is a paddler’s paradise along the banks of the Edisto River, one of the country’s longest free-flowing, blackwater rivers.

Colleton is one of the state’s smallest parks, located just off I-95 along US Highway 15, near the Canady crossroads. This stretch of river is popular for fishing, kayaking, and tubing, and it also serves as a training ground for river rescue training. The park offers canoeing and first aid courses so you can learn new skills while camping.

Colleton State Park offers a variety of water sports and a welcoming staff. Finally, by strolling along the Cypress Swamp Trail, you can learn more about the many trees, plants, and animals that call Colleton home.

Colleton State Park Camping

Camp in one of Colleton State Park’s 25 RV campsites. Each location has standard 30-amp electric and water hookups. Some can accommodate RVs up to 40 feet long, while others can only accommodate RVs up to 25 feet long. There will be a fire pit and a table at your campsite.

You will have access to the campground’s bathhouse, which has clean, hot showers and flush toilets. A camp store and RV dump station are also available. Previous visitors have praised the park’s cleanliness.

From April to November, this is a popular place to camp with an RV, so make a site reservation in advance, either online or by phone. When you make your RV reservation, the state requires a two-night minimum stay.

Because the campgrounds are close to a busy road, you may want to reserve a spot on the other side of the loop to avoid traffic noise. Bring your dog along on this RV camping trip, and don’t forget to stop by the park office for a treat. With a beautiful river just a short walk away, friendly staff, and the ability to get away from it all, RV camping will be a pleasure while visiting this intimate state park.

Colleton State Park Activities


The Edisto River is a fishing paradise where you can catch your dinner of redbreast, bream, and catfish. A valid South Carolina fishing license will be required. The park does offer a Tackle Loaner Program, which is sponsored by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and provides rods and reels on loan for visitors to enjoy. The relaxing waters of the river will make you glad you stopped and cast your line, whether you are an experienced angler or this is your first time fishing.


Explore the one-of-a-kind Edisto River with your boat, canoe, or kayak on the country’s longest unimpeded blackwater river. The park provides a boat ramp about a half-mile from the park, which is ideal for paddlers of all skill levels. Travel the 21-mile canoe trail between Colleton State Park and Givhans Ferry State Park while taking in the breathtaking Lowcountry scenery. Relax and enjoy nature while floating down the river!


During your visit to Colleton State Park, take a break from RV camping to observe the unique birds of the Lowcountry. The best places to see these winged creatures are along the Edisto River or the Cypress Swamp Trail. You may see endangered species such as a Bald Eagle or a Black-Neck Stilt flying overhead due to the swamp habitat. Pack your binoculars and prepare for a relaxing afternoon away from the office!


Looking for some excitement? Geocaching allows you to participate in a worldwide modern-day treasure hunt in the unique areas of this state park. Part of the Coastal Region Challenge, this fairly easy course will add some excitement to your stay at Colleton State Park while also providing some exercise. There are four regions to explore during your hunt in the challenge. Take your camera with you to capture the various places you discover.

Colleton State Park Location

Colleton State Park is a great place to stop in South Carolina and is easily accessible from I-95. Many visitors use Colleton State Park as a stopover in their campervan on their way to Edisto Beach, Charleston, or Beaufort. There is only one paved road in the park that is easier to navigate for smaller to mid-sized RVs. Curves and trees can make it difficult for larger RVs to navigate.


Visitors rave about the park rangers who accommodate campers during their stay as an example of southern hospitality. When you arrive, you will notice that the majority of the RV camping sites are on the sand, but there is a paved road that leads to all of the campsites. The sites differ in terms of whether you will pull through or back in to the park. You can park in the large lot just past the Park Office if you are not staying at the campground.
