Just a little update on a recent three night trip to Givhans Ferry State Park on the Edisto River near Ridgeville South Carolina. The park is located about 35 miles west of Charleston S.C.
Nice little state park with access to the river. It has tent and RV sites, picnic areas for families and larger groups and also a hiking trail and small gift shop.
We used Edisto River Adventures for our tubes and shuttle service. They have a little shop there at the State Park. Best to make reservations online in advance. We went on Saturday at 10:00am and they said they had over 300 tubes rentals going out that afternoon. Saturday and Sunday the park’s visitor parking lot was full.
We hit the river there at the state park access. The river level was down, so the float down to the exit point was about 3 hours. Just a nice easy cruise down the river.
We exited the river at Edisto River Adventures, where they had sandy beaches, recreation area and a Food Truck on site. There were shuttle buses standing by to take us back to the state park.
Probably next time we come, we’ll bring our own tubes and park a vehicle at a public boat ramp down below Edisto River Adventures to transport us back to the state park. It appears that a lot of folks are doing this to save expense on the rental equipment.
The weather was ok, hot days and we had a couple evenings of showers. Most of the RV sites are full hook ups and spacious sites. Bathhouse was nearby and clean. Park hosts and park staff were nice.
As a side note, if you are ever in the Ridgeville area be sure to check out Christina’s Pizza and Subs. Just a small pizza restaurant beside the railroad. Probably the best pizza I have ever had and Christina is very pleasant to talk with! She is closed on Sunday and Monday.
We enjoyed our stay and plan to come back for the tubing and pizza!
Thanks for visiting our site and please check back soon for more updates of our travels seeking fun and sun!
