Huntington Beach State Park
This state park claims to be one of the finest bird watching site on the East Coast. It has a freshwater lagoon, a salt marsh, two nature trails and a beach, camping sites and cabins and coastal exploration programs at 10am, 2pm and 4pm. The boardwalks extend into the marsh for wildlife viewing, and you can fish from the jetty or the pier with equipment borrowed for free. This is also the site of Atalaya, the summer home of Archer and sculptor Anna Hyatt Huntington who established Brookgreen Gardens.
quite,clean,wide beach.love everything about the beach.disliked,lady passing judgement on my 10and7 year old grandson;s.saying out loud,for all to hear a very insulting comment about(the cracks of there butt).my grandson;s one of my grandsons is sway backed (born that way)something he cannot help so the tip of his butt without a shirt does show,normally he has a shirt on,however ,he;d been playing in the sand,he went into the store to use the restroom.so this was not a fashion statement.my son an army officer working to save her behind told her so.with no responce from her. so,i think this lady needs to be put out to paster.if she;s so offended by a little boys crack.i say fire her butt'' idisliked that.i've visited your park for33 years.i'll come back to the beach,but not to your store.all said,folks it is worth the drive and money to go there.
everything was so nice, the restrooms, the camp sites and the beautiful beach, we enjoy this park every year.i was very upset the day of our departure, we were putting the jacks up on our motorhome, when the camp host told my grandson we needed to hurry up and check out , there was someone waiting for our site. i know check-in is 2;00.i would have understood if it was 12;30 or later, but really seven mins!!!!!!!!!!. you need to treat the guest that are leaving like you treat the guest that are arriving. i just hope she is not there next year.
Clean ,Quiet and Serene , you can swim ,as well as take a long walk on the shore. If you like Alligators ,with careful searching you can spot several in the 2 freshwater ponds at the park . Clean bath houses are a plus.
Be sure to bring your own food and drinks , snack shop has a scant selection.
We camped in April, and NO bugs! The campsites are large, with open common areas and an abundance of trees. The bath facilities were ok and the staff were socialble. The beach is deep enough for kiting and shelling was great north, near the jetty. The kids enjoyed the education center - where they got to pet a stingray - and the marsh boardwalk, where they saw fiddler crabs, egrets and other birds.
Although most of the paths were for foot traffic only, there's miles of level roads for biking. We saw a dozen alligators along the causeway. The old homesite Atalaya was interesting to explore.
Huntington Beach State Park providied us with a great family vacation!
We visited in July 2010. We like everything about the Park. We camped for 6 nights. We say lots of alligators, birds and other wildlife. We saw a loggerhead turtle come in to make a nest and lay her eggs. We attended the ghost stories at the castle and it was great fun. This is a great family park and campground.
This is one of the best state parks I've been to. The camp sites are very nice and many are very private. Everything is clean and the trash and recycles are in one central location so there are no animal issues or smell. The nature center is wonderful, and they have awesome programs for the entire family. The beach its self is also terrific and a excellent walk just minutes from the campground. You just take a few steps in either direction and you have an uncrowded spacious beach to spend the day.
We return to Huntington beach every year, and really enjoy our stay there. It is really a great beach, and a quite park. However, the restrooms and shower houses need a great deal of attention/improvement. We realize the effort to stay within the "environmental context" of the park, but they could really use improvement in this area since they are at the top of the scale for campsite prices......BUT, WE ALWAYS GO BACK!!!! Love it
My family and I go to SC every year. We stay for two weeks and enjoy the nature and friendly enviorment. We meet up with friends that also come back every year. The campsites are very nice and the bugs arn't to bad. Their are animals everywhere, some people do not like this but I do not mind, I enjoy watching the wildlife. Their are many things that you can do while staying their and its beach is not crowded.
