{ CURRENT AFFAIR }

The adventure itself begins long before you reach the treehouses on the Edisto. An overnight stay at Treehouse Island (or any other camping locale on the Carolina Heritage Outfitters property) starts off with a 23-mile paddle down the Edisto River. Currents are typically mild, and guests are encouraged to set their own pace. Just be wary of fallen trees that can pop up throughout the stretch. For those seeking a less strenuous excursion, the Kennedys also offer a shorter, 10-mile day trip that casts off from the swamplands and travels down to the Carolina Heritage Outfitters outpost.
