Colleton State Park, Walterboro
(4.4/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Clean and exquisitely maintained. Great park rangers. The river is great fun for swimming or kayaking with lots of natural beauty. Walterboro isn't far away if you want to eat out or buy serious supplies. A few sites, like ours, are moderately close to US-15 (2-lane highway), but we were never once bothered by it. At night there is almost no traffic on that road. We got a site close to the highway because we have dogs and didn't want to bother anybody.
  • Shady but open campsites. Enjoyed tubing and sitting in the sandy bottomed river while the current flowed by. A cool place to be on a hot day. Our drive through site was almost level, had 30Amp electric and water. Dump station was convenient and well designed. Staff was helpful. Easy to do from I-95.
  • We were walk-ins, 5 minutes before closing but staff was very nice and gave us a spacious place and easy to get into. Campground is maintained very well. Loved it.
  • Great site right on the Edisto. They only drawback is the number of sites they offer is low, but that is also a plus as it can't get too crowded. Just would have been good to get a little more variety in settings. Grab a canoe from the place across the river and float on down the Edisto! Gorgeous!
  • Quite quaint and amazing. The park is small but has river access for swimming and canoeing. All the sites are shaded and not on top of each other. Very pretty. The Ranger is very friendly and helpful.
