Edisto Beach State Park just south of Charleston will reopen Friday, Nov. 18, after being closed for more than a month to recover from Hurricane Matthew.
The park’s beachfront day-use area surrounding its historic bathhouse, its Live Oak Campground, its marshside cabins, education center and boat ramp all will resume regular operating hours on Friday. Its oceanside campground, however, is still closed while undergoing repairs, and is expected to open in September 2017.
The park was closed in October and early November after it sustained damage from high winds and a storm surge associated with the hurricane.
Edisto Beach is one of the Park Service’s four oceanfront campgrounds and one of its most popular. In addition to its coastal beauty, Edisto Beach is historically significant as one of 16 state parks built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.
