Colleton State Park, Walterboro

4.4
Colleton State Park is a 35acre state park located along U.S. Highway 15 between St. George and Walterboro, South Carolina, USA. One of the smallest state parks in the South Carolina, Colleton's main attraction is recreational access to the Edisto River in the form of paddling or fishing. Several campsites for RVs and tents as well as some team-sport recreation facilities are also located in the site. For many years, the park was underutilized due in part to an adjacent SCE&G coal-fire power plant, which discouraged many potential visitors from the park. The power plant was closed by SCE&G at the end of 2012. Local officials hope to potentially acquire the site and expand the park.

  • Quiet, basic, simple, easy and relaxing!! As a camper you have access to the showers and more but as a daytime visitor only access to restrooms not showers but basically all the same as the campers!! It was a close get away for the kids and I at the time!! We enjoyed our times spent their!!
  • Mostly Sandy sites, but with nicely paved roads to all camp sites. Lovely Tall Pine trees and set above a small River, with steps down to the river and quite a few trials. Excellent friendly helpful staff. Great WiFi (unheard of for a state park) with water electric sites. Good hot showers.
  • Stopped here to stretch our legs while traveling and enjoy a picnic lunch. A very nice break:)
  • Arrived late, in the rain, and very very dark. Kind Host helped us back in. Site was flat with light gravel. Next morning we realized what an awesome park this was. We will be back! Bathrooms were very very clean.
  • Just minutes off 95 so it was a great place for us to stop for the night on our way south. Next time we’ll plan to stay a couple days. Only downside is the traffic noise.
