“Bird sightings galore and Atalanta treasure ”

Huntington Beach State Park
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 October 2018 via mobile

Our family group of 12 recently enjoyed a wonderful afternoon here. We spent a lot of time in the causeway photographing a wide variety of birds, Egrets, Roseate Spoonbills, Herons, Woodstorks, gulls, and others. We were amazed at the Spoonbills with their “sweeping” feeding technique. We all walked down the straight road that used to connect it to Brookgreen Gardens, and were told by a walker a photographer had sighted an alligator crossing the path! We saw a large owl and a fast fox. We had an annual pass and some of our party went back two additional days to view the birds at the “Golden Hour” from about 5:30 - 7. In addition my husband and I toured Atalaya, a wonderful Spanish style hour built by the Huntingtons. She had her studios there and places to house animals to study for sculptures. It is a lovely wedding venue with wonderful textures in the exposed brick walls and indoor and outdoor spaces for wedding ceremony and reception. We all enjoyed so many aspects of this wonderful place.

Stopped at Huntington Beach State Park today, it is really gorgeous. The camping area was really nice! They have nice clean restrooms, plenty of parking and a nice gift shop.
On the way in we saw an alligator along the causeway and a lot of wild life.
I highly recommend you visit when in the area!

We love this campground. It has a wonderful beach access, and they have just added some full service sites that we will try on our next visit. When we got our camper stuck in a drainage ditch this year maintenance pulled us out and were so gracious about it. Heavy mosquitoes in the woodsy areas because of the recent hurricane but they are fogging for them. We like the access to restaurants and yet the SP is away from the crowds. We will come again.
