Colleton State Park is a 35-acre (0.14 km2) state park located along U.S. Highway 15 between St. George and Walterboro, South Carolina, United States. The smallest state park in the state of South Carolina, Colleton's main attraction is recreational access to the Edisto River in the form of paddling or fishing. Several campsites for RVs and tents as well as some team-sport recreation facilities are also located in the site. For many years, the park was underutilized due in part to an adjacent SCE&G coal-fire power plant, which discouraged many potential visitors from the park. The power plant was closed by SCE&G at the end of 2012. Local officials hope to potentially acquire the site and expand the park.Put Colleton State Park into our Walterboro road trip planning website to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Walterboro.

Wonderful canoeing and picknicking! Helpful staff. They provided complimentary shuttle service for canoeing. The only payment they would accept was a donation to the state park.

It was our first time camping here but we will definitely come back. If you love kayaking and canoeing this is the place to come. Rangers John and Andrew were amazing. We wanted to kayak down the Edisto River but weren’t sure we could kayak back due to the current. They offered to drive us and our kayaks 6 miles down the road to a private launch so we could paddle back down to the campground. Loved that the campsites were full service and the bathrooms were nice and clean.
Nice low key park. Pretty simple and a good place to relax. If you like paddling it’s right on the Edisto. There is a small cypress swamp that’s really cool too. Only drawback is that it’s close to the highway so there is some road noise.
