Still Beautiful

Several hurricanes have changed to landscape of the park and beach, but it is still a great getaway.

Actually, while we walked out to the beach we didn't use it as we are local for 6 months and have a beach much closer that we use. That said, HBSP has a large parking area, many hiking trails, campgrounds, a very nice gift shop,...More

We went to the state park to visit the Atalaya Castle, where the Huntingtons lived while they built Brookgreen Gardens (on the other side of US highway 17) in the 1930s and wintered down here in the South. From the little I have learned about...More

We are in love with the SC State Park system and this one is no exception. The campground is excellent - various sites to meet everyone's needs, clean bathrooms and plenty to do in the park. In addition to the roads in the park, there...More

We made this stop partly because I had heard there might be some better shelling at the park. On the particular day we went I didn't find that it was anything particularly better than the finds you get on your average stretch of beach in...More

Not overdeveloped, and plenty of access to nature. Very nice beach, well marked hiking trails, and a boardwalk stretching into the marsh area. Well worth a visit. But a sign said "No Crabbing," so the Ranger made me go away and come back when I...More

This was our second visit to Huntington Beach State Park. We walked along the causeway, and did the Sandpiper Pond trail. We saw/heard lots of birds, and a gator across the pond. We did find parts of the trail to be confusing and ended up...More

We stayed at the campground in March 2018. Nicely spaced sites with water and electric. The water hookup and electric box at site 29 are close to the road. While our electric cord reached the box, the 20 ft water hose was too short to...More

Beautiful, beautiful beach, affordable, simple trails, plus a castle with a fascinating history. Right across from Brookgreen Gardens. If you have little ones, though, just keep an eye out because they have alligators in the marsh area. There are clear signs posted in the area,...More

To be honest, while we did not camp there I cannot say exactly how close to the marsh they are. I did notice that while mosquitoes were present during the walk down the marsh 'boardwalk, I didn't notice them at the site... More

Most of the sites are far away from trash area. Pump out is outside campground area. We have stayed in many sites. None of them are bad.
