This 1,255-acre park includes a 1½-mile-long beachfront with some of the area's best shelling, marshland, and tidal rivers, and a lush maritime forest with a 7-mile trail running through it. The trail is hard-packed shell sand, suitable for bikes and wheelchairs. Overnight options include seven rustic, furnished cabins by the marsh. The park stays extremely busy, so you have to reserve these as far as 11 months in advance. The small ranger station has some fishing poles
to lend and firewood for sale. Pets on leashes are allowed. The park's Environmental Learning Center is an entertaining way to explore the natural history of Edisto Island and the surrounding ACE Basin. Amenities: parking; showers; toilets. Best for: solitude; sunset; swimming; walking.
