Firewood Alert: Because of the seriousness of a potential infestation from the Emerald Ash Borer, we are requesting that no firewood be brought into South Carolina State Parks from outside of the state.

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is a destructive invasive exotic beetle that feeds on ash trees. Park campgrounds and picnic areas are the most likely areas for EAB introduction into South Carolina. We appreciate your help in protecting the natural resources of South Carolina and our State Park System.

This 35-acre park was originally built as a wayside park in the 1930's by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Campers, fishermen, canoeists and other outdoor enthusiasts enjoy the peaceful and relaxing blackwaters of the Edisto River. Colleton is on a portion of the river that has been designated as an official canoe and kayak trail.
