Set along the South Edisto River, Aiken State Park is a haven for fishing, canoeing and kayaking.
A scenic 1.7-mile canoe and kayak trail winds its way down the south fork of the Edisto River, attracting paddlers from across the region. For other Edisto River access points, click here.
Aiken State Park has a history as notable as its natural beauty. During the Great Depression, the park was built by two Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) companies, one of which was an African-American detachment of the CCC. Their work has withstood the test of time and can still be seen in some of the remaining structures and interpretive signage.
