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

We have been coming to this park for over 8 years. We have gone to the beach, campground, trails, (previously) nature center, and overlooks. Love!

Well if this is how the wealthy lived, I’m glad I wasn’t born into the Hyatt-Huntington family lol! Their brick and mortar castle would be for me a cold and maze-like existence. This one level home is basically room after room of cement walls and...More

We went here as a family to look fo alligators and ended up finding quite a few. This was beautiful park for a nature walk. They also have a cool castle that you can tour.

The Atalaya castle and marsh walk are awesome. The first year my boyfriend and I came here we saw a ton of alligators and some crabs. The park is very clean and it is a nice cheap way to spend a nice day in Myrtle...More

Fell in love with the Beach at Huntington. You can go anytime of year and if you go to the Northern end you will be amazed at how few people. Shells come in seasons it seems. I can never leave without picking up a few....More

Took a day while on spring break and hiked the trails in the park. Great viewing of wild life and staff was informative to let you know the best spot to see gators. They also offer camping for those looking for camping spots. Spacious sites...More

We haven't camped there but with the heat and humidity during that time of year, I imagine it might get pretty miserable. We have been through the campground and it is one that I would have no problem staying at. I would... 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.
