Plenty of hiking trails

I just found out about this state park a few months ago. It’s a South Carolina state park you may not think about. Just outside of Aiken, it has trails, fishing ponds, and it’s on the Edisto River. The Aiken State Park is part of the South Carolina State Parks.

Fishing and Relaxing

Canoeing and kayaking are popular here, and you’ll always see people fishing in one of the three fishing lakes for largemouth bass and bluegill. If you’re a camper, there are 25 camper spots here, too, and they can accommodate RVs up to 35 feet.

Picnic shelters are available, too.

If You Go…

Hours for the park are Monday through Sunday, 9 am to sunset. Admission is $3 for adults, $1.50 for SC seniors, and $1 for children 6 to 15 years of age. Children 5 and under are free.

The address for the Aiken State Park is 1145 State Park Road, Windsor, SC.

As I drove through and spent some time here, I couldn’t help but think that this place has got to be so quiet in the middle of the night. It would be a great place to take your camper for a weekend and just get away for a while.
