We stopped here for a couple of hours and had a great time. We saw so many great birds including a stork. Well worth the visit.

This a beautiful state park. Visit the fort, walk on the beach, camp here. Price of admission is worth the parking, shops, and bathrooms available before or after your walk.

Great park to visit. The history of the home at Huntington Beach is fascinating and touring the home and ground is a wonderful experience. I look forward to returning to Huntington Beach State Park in the Summer to also enjoy the beach access.

We enjoyed Huntington, which is a place our family went 30 yrs ago when we were kids. The beach is nice for walking. Atalaya is interesting. The nature trail to the ponds is also nice. We were glad to be back.

We love the beach here and you can camp out. The reservations fill up very early though. Good place to go to photograph birds. Atalaya is fun to walk through and see how things used to be.

Great location, just short drive from Hubbub of Myrtle. Hiking trails, campground, beach access, long stretches of uncrowded beach. Take a nice long walk away from all the lights and crowds! Salt marsh with tons of wildlife... birds, alligators, fish, crabs, raccoons, deer, etc... Kids...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.
