This is a very popular park any time of the year as we found out. We went camping in January and I believe the campground over half full. As a matter of fact, they take reservations 13 month in advance. We were told that they...More

Loved this park, including the old Huntington residence despite its condition. Lots of history here. Heard comments about how awful it is, but you have to use some imagination and not set expectations based on the Biltmore (which is what we were hearing). They created...More

Nice place, camping available, lots of BEACH, clean changing area close to the beach, not usually too crowded: must pay to enter, or have a SC park pass

Stopped in for a hike around the park. Very low-key, at least in January. Has a small gift shop, signage for trails could be better, but finally found the Sandpiper trail, ~ 2 mis. Nice day and hike around Sandpiper Pond. Would come back again

As an annual pass holder, we like going to Hunnington because we can take Maxwell, our King Charles Spaniel. Good access with bathrooms close by. Can be crowded during peak season but off season is great for private beach access.

This park is beautiful and well maintained. We took a guided tour of Atalaya. The Ranger was interesting and knowledgeable. We had a nice hike and went out on a beautiful if somewhat chilly beach.

According to the park rangers they are separate from the guests in the marshland. We were worried about that too but never seen one on the beach. The beach is like a mile from the marshland separated by a strip of land. I... More
