Edisto River - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip

Report Type: Day Trip Report
Trip Dates: Nov. 2002
Nearest City: Cottageville, SC
Difficulty: Easy
Submitted by: David Gorney

Description:

I recently had an excellent day trip on the Edisto River near Cottageville, SC (about 30-40 miles from Charleston). Started at Givhan's Ferry State Park and went to Long Creek public landing. The trip took about 4.5 hours with a break for lunch of about 30 minutes. The river is excellent in this portion, with a wide variety of scenery. Width ranges from over 100 feet to some very narrow parts. However, we nearly passed the Long Creek landing. Luckily a local boater informed us that this landing is actually back in a cove and not visible from the main river. When looking for this landing, use the large sand bar as a landmark for the point where you turn back into a cove and paddle upstream for about 5 minutes.

Directions:

From Charleston, head straight out on HW 61 past Summerville. Givhans Ferry state park is just off 61 and very well marked.

Resources:

Coastal Expeditions Map was very helpful and can be purchased online or over the phone.
