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, United States. 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.

  • Although this state park is relatively small its clean and well maintained. The camp sites are fairly well spaced considering it's a small park. Not as much room as you'd get in most national forest b...  more »

  • This small South Carolina state park provided us with a clean site with generous tent pad, clean, fresh water and reliable electricity. Lovely location. Bath house was kept clean all the time. They almost rate five stars but for the micro showers; No space to rotate, and the lack of firewood. The park could make some money if they had fire wood for sale.
  • Nice small park. River access in numerous spots. Camping, trails, puppo friendly. Great wildlife. Easily accessible from the interstate.
  • Nice, small state park with new dock facilities for the Edisto River. Wooded sites and a nice 0.3-mile trail running through the woods and partially along the river. Super stay if you're a river user.
  • Very pretty area. The Edisto river runs through the park. It is close to interstate 95 on the east side. It has a large campground.
  • This park is very small if ur looking to walk, but the short trail they do have takes u to a pretty cypress swap on one side, and the Edisto river runs right on the other side. Perfect canoing or kayaking stop. The park rangers even offered advice where to be dropped off and picked up along the river. And it looked like a great rv/camper stop.
