Hunting Island State Park is said to be the most popular of all the South Carolina State Parks. It is easy to see why. This semi-tropical barrier island offers 5 miles of beautiful sandy beach perfect for swimming, shore-fishing, sand castle building and long walks. You will see the most glorious sunrises from this stretch of beach so get up early!
Other activities available are the fishing and crabbing pier (they even have a loaner tackle program for free), hiking through maritime forests and along marshes, and relaxing in the campground or their fully-furnished cabin. The best activity is to climb up the only lighthouse in South Carolina that is open to the public. It's 167 steps to a grand view of the area!
Offers 178 standard sites that offer water and electric hook-ups. There are two dump-stations close by. There are restroom and shower buildings throughout the park. There is also a playground and multiple paths to the beach. You can even reach a hiking trail from within the campground. Pets are allowed on the beach and in the campground.
Ocean-backing sites: 39, 48, 47, 46, 45
There is only one fully-furnished cabin for rent. Pets are not allowed in the cabin area.
