There is no mention of a weekly or monthly rate.
Lots: This is a small park. Most of the lots are back-ins with a few pull-in pull-outs. All lots are dirt and packed sand based, some are pretty un-level. This is a state park, there are ample mature trees and it is next to the Edisto River.

Positives: Price – for a State Park this is a very good price, but when we found that they also have a good internet connection, this is excellent. Location – The park is about an hour from Charleston. The Park has excellent canoeing opportunities. There is a put in at this park and a pull out at Givhan’s Ferry park down-river. I’m not sure how far the other park is but for those that like to canoe this is an excellent opportunity.
Negatives: The park is close to a major highway, if you are on that side of the park you will hear the autos and semis. Getting in and out with a large RV is white finger driving because some of the trees are extremely near the paved road.
