Although it's not a big park, it has all the beach front you need without paying the exorbitant beach side parking prices in Myrtle Beach. The Huntington's castle was worth the nominal fee. Interesting to imagine living here.

We camped at this Park for years but now we simply visit it when we want to relax at the beach and soak up the views of nature instead of condos!

State park with a beautiful beach. A great place to spend with family and friends. Bring your bathing suits and coolers and chairs. Plan to spend the day.

Go at low tide. Then the egrets, herons, cormorants and wood storks are fishing. Today we saw a bald eagle gliding over the marsh. Take binoculars and/or a camera with a zoom lens. Lovely nature walks. Worth the price of admission, five bucks.

A beautiful park, which includes a beach lined with nature (Dunes, foliage, trees) instead of hotels. There is a neat old 1930's property that can be viewed for an extra $2 a person (Its $5 per adult to enter the park). The property is called...More

Short walk to a beautiful beach. Our kids played in the sand and water and we fished for flounder each evening of our stay. So much fun!

It depends on what you & your mother want to do. There are some great boardwalks and paved paths to observe the birds & alligators near the causeway. The castle within the property would also be accessible. Boardwalks... More
