Edisto Beach State Park – Edisto Island SC

Description

Edisto Beach State Park is located on the coast of South Carolina, 50 miles south of Charleston, near the town of Edisto Beach in Colleton County.

“Edisto Beach State Park, rich in Native American history, and was donated to the South Carolina Department of Parks and Tourism in 1935 by Edisto Company. Development of the park was completed shortly after by the Civilian Conservation Corps, which was a New Deal program created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The program was designed to provide employment during the Great Depression while addressing needs to conserve natural resources. The “CCC” played a large role in developing a lot of the state’s parks, and a number of buildings built in the 1930′s are still in use today.”   (http://www.edistobeach.com)
