Hurricane Matthew was almost a year ago, but that doesn’t mean its impact is over. However, slowly but surely the beach and island are returning to normal. Most recently, the Edisto Beach State Park oceanfront campground is open for business.
The beach experienced significant damage during the hurricane and was closed while repairs and renovation were underway. Now, the beach is open again so campers can visit its oceanfront sites, salt marsh sites, or stay in the park’s few cabins.
For those unaware, the Edisto Beach State Park offers campers 1255 acres of a maritime forest, salt march, and the beach itself. There are 113 camp sites, walk-in tent sites, seven rental cabins, and beach access for campers and day trippers.
If walking miles of trails, exploring the beach, and staring up into the starry night sky aren’t enough for your camping experience, the park also offers bird watching, fishing opportunities, a boat ramp, playground, picnic tables and shelter, shelters, nature center, and wifi.
Plus, this time of year is fantastic for a visit. The weather is a bit cooler, the campground isn’t as full, and guests can spend the nights and days exploring the nature of island.
So, whether you’re interested in a wooded site or staying right next to the beach, the Edisto Beach State Park has a little something for everyone.
