Wild and rustic, but with plenty of walking trails. Charming gift shop with shirts, refreshments and local lore near the lighthouse. Impressive driftwood beach.

Worth going if you want some ocean side time. Some interesting history and beautiful Nature. There is a lighthouse that you can climb to the top of that gives you fabulous views.

Just an amazing park. We were there on a Sunday morning and a little rainy. Beach was so nice and was amazing to see all the devastation from the hurricanes! We climbed the lighthouse and enjoyed that so much. Would love to camp here.

walk up the light house for great views. Covered areas and great beach walks. Some prior storm damage that was being cleaned up. There is a small admission charge.

My wife and I took a drive and ended-up here on a whim. They are still rebuilding from hurricane damage but it is worth a visit at any time. Unlike Myrtle-Beach and Hilton-Head and worth the visit. A great place to take the family; the dogs; and enjoy a quieter place to relax.
