Edisto Beach Adventure

Fossil Hunting at Edisto Beach

For those wanting to find fossils from mammoths, mastodons, giant armadillos and tortoises, horses, bison, and more amazing Ice Age critters, then fossil hunting at Edisto Beach is for you. While complete elements are rare, Ashby's trained eye can identify even the smallest fossil fragment down to the animal and sometimes body part. The real treasure on these Adventures is the opportunity to discover one of these fragments from prehistoric giants!


The EBA starts in the beach area of the State Park (participants must pay separate park admission). From the parking lot, the primary hunting location is a 1.4 mile walk. However, depending on the volume of material present, nice fossils may be located within a mile.


Recommended Items: Water, sunscreen, bug spray, water shoes or sandals, snacks, raincoat, camera/cell phone, readers/Rx glasses. Collection pouches provided!
