My name is Kyle Bullock, Park Manager at Edisto Beach State Park. My first job in the park service was at Hickory Knob State Resort Park. It was there when I realized that I wanted to be a park ranger. Working outside, helping guests and realizing the impact I could have on their experience really resonated with me. In all honesty, it helped me grow as a person.
One of the features that I personally like is the trail system here at Edisto Beach State Park. We have over 4 miles of ADA accessible trails which take you out to hammock islands, meandering through the maritime forest and all the way over to the Environmental Learning Center. The Scott Creek Trail section is my favorite by far.
The one thing a first-time visitor should do at the park is visit the Environmental Learning Center. This center has an amazing collection of fossils and has a ton of information about the island, park and ACE Basin. On top of that, we have live animals, including an alligator, and exhibits to help illustrate the wonderful resources we have here at Edisto Beach State Park.
**Our Ultimate Outsider stamps are located in various places throughout the park. These include: the Environmental Learning Center, Ranger Station, Welcome Station at the beachfront entrance, beachfront administrative office and the park kiosk found between the parking area and restrooms in the picnic area.
Rich in Native American history, Edisto Beach on Edisto Island is one of four oceanfront state parks in South Carolina.
Edisto Beach State Park features trails for hiking and biking that provide a wonderful tour of the park. The park’s environmental education center is a “green” building with exhibits that highlight the natural history of Edisto Island and the surrounding ACE Basin.
For overnight accommodations, furnished cabins sit nestled in the woods, and campsites can be found along the Edisto Island oceanfront or in the shaded maritime forest.
