Not sure what to expect, but pleasantly surprised. Some camellias blooming. Gardens well laid out. Beautiful live oaks with Spanish moss. House tour was fun. Great antiques to see. Excellently restored. Trails on ground were short and easy, but not much exciting flora. Has great picnic areas. Entrance fee reasonable at $4 per vehicle. House tour $4 per person.

This was one of the most special places I've ever been to. The 600 year old wedding tree is not to be missed. its almost magical to stand under it. Seeing the trees with the Spanish moss hanging from them, its like your in another world.

This area is all about water and beach, so when the weather turns sour there is not a lot to do. Our trip to this house saved the day. Nice area overall and it stop raining long enough for us to walk around the grounds for a little while. Just a small old home well decorated for the holidays. Daily... More

We visited the house at Eden State Park during the Christmas Holiday. It was beautifully decorated. Each room had its own theme. The grounds are breath taking with all the huge trees.

This park is just beautiful. A friend recently had her wedding here and provided a gorgeous backdrop for the ceremony. If you're there at the right time of the day, walking under the live oak trees, the sun will shine through in such a special way that it makes it feel like it's enchanted. :)

There is a house to tour on this property. It is decorated very nicely and has some interesting pieces of antique furniture. The tour is worth the small admittance fee. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable about the family and the house. But the best part of the park were the ancient trees. Go on a sunny day when the... More

Drove by the turn off for Eden Garden State Park for years. I decided one day to turn down the road and visit the park. What a beautiful place for a stroll, picnic, hike, or wedding. Make sure you drive across 98 away from 30A and check out this gorgeous and quiet state park with and it's historic mansion!

We walked around the grounds and also enjoyed the tour of the home with Kara...she's a great guide. Only issue was the number of biting insects- take bug spray!
