I'll soon be passing through South Carolina and am considering an overnighter on the Edisto to break up the trip. Last time, I overnighted on the river upstream of Carolina Heritage Outfitters at Canadys, SC.
If I was to put in at Canadys with a destination of, say, Givhans, are there camping spots somewhere in between?
TIA for info,

there are a few nice white sandy beaches on the inside of the oxbows in several places where we used to stop to stretch our legs and have a snack. Certainly big enough to pitch a tent. There's another take out about 5 miles short of Givan's Ferry on river right. Can't miss the concrete boat ramp. Plenty of room there to pitch a tent too...
The river s/b low enough for sandbar|

camping. Should also be cold enough to camp in the woods - no skeeters.
Edisto flow is looking good.|

How far is it to Givhans? |

When we ran the treehouse section, we rented a pokey canoe from the outfitter, but if we had our own tandem, we could really cover ground. Same for solo.

sandbars are few and far between. But space scouting is even more worth doing when campsites are scarce.

My info has the Colleton to Givans section being about 21 miles. Long day trip or an overnighter.
