Edisto Beach State Park is located on the coast of South Carolina, 50 miles (80 km) south of Charleston, near the town of Edisto Beach in Colleton County.

The park offers South Carolina's longest system of handicapped accessible hiking and biking trails. The trails wind through Edisto Island's maritime forest, leading to sites such as a Native American shell midden dated to 2000 BC, and a survey monument placed by Alexander Bache in 1850.

Activities possible at the park include surf fishing for flounder, spot tail and whiting, as well as boating, birding and picnicking.

The park's education center, the Edisto Interpretive Center, hosts a number of programs and research services. The center includes an exhibit teaching visitors about the ACE Basin estuarine reserve through interactive displays.
