State Park on the Edisto River with cypress swamp, nature trails and marks the beginning of the Edisto River Kayak and Canoe Trail

Colleton State Park overlooks the scenic EdistoRiver, one of the longest free-flowing black water rivers in the world. The park is the headquarters for the Edisto River Kayak and Canoe Trail, which is a 21-mile stretch of the Edisto River that ends in the neighboring Givhans Ferry State park. The park features the Cypress Swamp interpretive nature trails, a canoe launch boardwalk and is also a great place to spot wildlife such as birds, deer, turtles and snakes! History Trivia: The park was built by the Works Progress Administration and the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression as a wayside for picnicking travelers.
