A natural retreat in the Lowcountry woods, Givhans Ferry State Park sits at the end of the 23-mile long stretch of Edisto River kayaking paradise known as the Edisto River Canoe and Kayak trail that begins at Colleton State Park.

The Edisto is the longest free-flowing, blackwater river in North America, and glimpses of it can be seen from the bluffs outside the rustic, Givhans Ferry State Park cabins, as well as from the back porch of the River House, the park welcome center. A shaded campground, nature trail and picnic shelters are also available at the park.

Enjoy Edisto River kayaking, tubing, trails, fishing and more at Givhans Ferry State Park. Cabins and campsites are available–reserve yours today! Explore another Lowcountry South Carolina park at Lake Warren!
