went on a weekend, if you live locally can get an annual pass for $55 per car at the local library if under 65. Beach is clean and plenty of room, lots of families, has outer shower area and bathrooms, small store for snacks/ice cream, very nice looking campground with electric/water hook up.

Love this beach!! No houses, high-rise hotels or condos. Looking north toward Myrtle Beach, all you see is sand and the ocean. Reminds me of some tropical beaches we have been to. Yearly pass for seniors is $37.50..a real bargain in this day and age.

Huntington Beach SP is a beautiful spot on the Atlantic Ocean with 2 beach locations, camping, store, & a variety of wildlife (including alligators in the marsh).

Spent an hour on the marsh watching the alligators and egrets prior to the arrival of a tropical storm. It was exhilarating and beautiful. Definitely will go again.

As always, the staff at SC state parks were great. And like a lot of others, the nature center was very nice (got to see a painted bunting). Had a nice trail walk and other than the fact that the guests before us were slobs, our camp site was fine (even with the 2 am visitation from a raccoon who... More

This fun ad great t take pictures of huge Legos in so many different displays. They even have a huge gator on the tour. I thought it was fake. You will see flowers, birds, butterflies, and so much more. It's a must pace to visit for kids and adults. The grounds and the art are a must see.

Beautiful beach with lifeguards, restrooms and gift shop. They do not have chairs or umbrellas so we brought our own. The beach was never crowded while we were there.
