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.

  • This is a small park but a nice place to go and relax. There is a playground for the kids, and the river is close by to do some kayaking, boating, or fishing. On a side note and think this park as wel...  read more »
  • A small park that tends to be completely booked since the locals love the place. We had a 20 ft travel trailer that would fit nicely in any space. Some of the larger RVs had difficulty manuvering the ...  read more »
  • I'm not sure there is enough to do here to merit camping, but it's a nice little stop-over for a short hike in the woods along the river and maybe a picnic lunch at one of the shelters. So, if you're ...  read more »
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The cabin here is wonderful the park only has one so booking early is a must be super clean comfortable and spacious sleeps 6
  • Lovely little park. We just stayed for one night as we were passing through. Camp staff was friendly and our stay was relaxing.
