Let's Go Camping!
Take a relaxing respite from the hustle and bustle of this fast paced world, and step into the quiet, peaceful natural areas of Aiken County. Enjoy one of two SC State Parks as you camp, fish, hike or canoe down the South Fork of the Edisto River.
Aiken State Park
1145 State Park Rd., Windsor
Hours: Monday thru Sunday 9 a.m. to sunset
Office Hours: 11 a.m. – noon and 4 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Admission: $3 adults; $1.50 SC seniors; $1 children age 6-15; age 5 & younger free.
The 1, 067-acre park offers picnicking, biking, camping, fishing, boating, hiking, geocaching, and a seasonal swimming area. The 3-mile loop, Jungle Trail, is a great hike. A playground is on the park too. Several geocaches are located on the park. For more information and locations of these caches, visit the official geocaching website.
The park is a combination of a river swamp, bottomland hardwood forest and dry sandhill Longleaf pine forest. The park has four ponds on the property for recreational paddling and fishing, which are fed by artesian springs. These naturally occurring underground water sources are under sufficient pressure to maintain a constant flow of water. In addition to the ponds, artesian water flows up through two artesian wells on the park. A small selection of souvenir items can be purchased in the park office. Firewood and fishing worms are also available for purchase. Pets are allowed in most outdoor areas provided they are kept on a leash no longer than six feet.
During the Great Depression, in the early 1930’s, 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 throughout the park.
There are 25 standard campsites with electrical service and water, as well as access to a shower house. There are 3 Rustic Tent Sites available for tent camping. All campsites are able to be reserved in advance. Please call the park office to make reservations, or call 1-866-345-PARK (7275).
