“An Outdoor Lover's Paradise!”

Located in Aiken County, Aiken State Park sits nestled along the South Edisto River in an outdoor-lover’s paradise. Aiken’s most notable attraction is the still, black water of the South Edisto River - fishing and canoeing are both popular here. A 1.7-mile canoe and kayak trail winds down the South Fork of the Edisto River. Fishing for bream, bass and catfish can be enjoyed from along the bank. Aiken State Park is also as rich in its history as it is natural beauty. During the Great Depression, an African American detachment of the Civilian Conservation Corps built the park.  Their work can still be seen in some of the remaining structures as well as interpretive signage. Check out other South Carolina state parks to find the best South Carolina mountain bike trails and attractions such as Charles Towne Landing.

We stayed at the Aiken State Park and we surprised at how much we loved it! It was during the off season, so we were the only ones there (along with the campground manager), and we loved having the privacy.
The campground is full of dense pine forests. If you stay here, kayaking down the Edisto River is a must! The park ranger recommended it and we are so grateful he did. It is a windy blackwater river with a slow current which makes for a relaxing yet exciting ride.
There are drop in and pick up spots, but because it was off season the park was not running shuttles. We left the kayaks at the drop in, drove the car and left it at the pick up spot, then rode our bikes back a short mile to the drop in, and hopped in our kayaks. Once we finished kayaking, we came back with the car to pick up the bikes we left at the drop in. Easy peasy. It took us about two hours. We have our own kayaks, but the park also has canoes to rent. If we pass through to visit my grandmother again, we will be staying here!
