Colleton State Park, Walterboro

#41 of 47 in Nature in South Carolina
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 a great park for weekend camping. It's on the smaller side, but the staff and facilities are really nice and well kept. It has a nice playground for the kids. It's right on the river, so a great spot if you want to canoe or kayak. Sites 6-8 are pretty close to the highway, so there is a lot of road noise if you're in a tent. Site 11 has the best view.

    Cute little State Park. Sites are nice and big enough. Not much privacy tho. Our site was not particularly level. Just know if you stay on the river side you will also have a lot of road noise. I would choose the quiet side of the park if I came back.

    Small but fun state park. Not loads of stuff to do but a nice, quiet weekend. Would happily go back.

    Small but makes up for by having excellent park rangers and being able to canoe, kayak or float down the edisto river.

    Only stayed the night on our way back north from Florida, but what a great park! One of the cleanest state parks we've visited. Friendly, dedicated and hard working Rangers and Camp Host. Will definitely return when we have more time to kayak and explore.
