Due to scheduled maintenance of the standard campsites at Aiken State Park, the campground will be closed beginning January 1, 2021 through March 31, 2021.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

For Canoe Trail rental information, please contact the Park Office directly for instructions and reservations.  Renters are responsible for providing their own transportation. Due to the distance between the put-in and take-out locations, we recommend that renters bring two vehicles and park one at the take-out dock prior to beginning the paddle. No shuttle service is available from park staff, due to public health concerns.
