Really great marsh with good piers and signage. Bike and hike friendly. Convenient and clean restrooms. We didn't use the camping area, but the hookups and shower houses appeared to be in great shape and were nicely situated.

I hesitate to review this beach since one of the best things about it is that it's never crowded. One of the nicest beaches on the Grand Strand!

We really enjoyed visiting this state park. We paid $5 per person to enter the park and then $2 per person to visit the mansion. The beach was pristine and the sand was so soft. The mansion was beautiful and very interesting.
