Aiken State Park is located near Windsor, South Carolina, USA, between Augusta, Georgia and Columbia, South Carolina. The park is said to be beautiful and is popular among paddlers due to 1.7 miles (2.7 km) of canoe and kayak trails along the south fork of the Edisto river. It is also historically interesting, with structures from the Depression time, when the park was built. The park hosts picnic shelters, lakes and camp sites. An EarthSky friend wrote: “The open area between the trees has a piece of sky perfect for viewing meteor showers.”
