Edisto River – Canadys, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Colleton County Photos | Edisto River
At 206 miles, the Edisto River (named for the Edisto Indians) is the longest undammed blackwater river in North America. It begins in Saluda and Edgefield counties and flows Southeast through 10 more South Carolina counties until it reaches Edisto Beach and empties into the Atlantic Ocean.
The Edisto has many access sites and is a favorite among anglers and kayakers. The Edisto River Canoe and Kayak Trail is one of the most popular water trails in the state. The Edisto River is also one of the three South Carolina rivers that make up the ACE Basin, one of the largest protected estuarine systems on the East Coast.
