Loved the drive through " the jungle" to get to the beach which is beautiful. We walked and walked , the hurricane damage to the north end is fascinating, up rooted trees thrown all over the beach. Great place, I'm sure it is better is warmer weather, but loved it anyway.

Such a beautiful state park to visit! This park has beautiful beach access. It's clean and well taken care of. A bit of a long winding road leading in but it's worth it in the end

More bird life than I have ever seen in Florida, dolphins who appear magically at the sound of children's voices, fantastic hiking with marsh lvistas which stir the soul. Reminds us that it is nature which keeps our spirits whole.

The beach is beautiful. The lighthouse and historical runes are really interesting. The park service people were friendly.

Your review says April-October...yes, that's lovely, but so is every other month of the year. It's a priceless place.

I like the park. I thought admission was too expensive at $5 per person. Nice place to camp when available.

great ocean campground. Needs some upgrading but so close to the ocean. The beach is a great place to walk. The sand is mostly hard packed so can be walked or even biked on.

This is a "Don't Miss" attraction, if you are in the area. The beaches are extraordinarily gorgeous any time of the year. The park is populated with exquisite foliage, although trails are limited. Stop at the Light House for spectacular views, and visit the camp store for wonderful gifts. May you see the beautiful wildlife when you are on the... More

It is a nice drive from Beaufort, SC and a great spot for couples or families. There are one or two restaurants a few miles from the park if you do not take you own food.

What a beautiful Island,it's unlike any island I have ever been on.The beach is beautiful with dead wood on parts of the beach.Great seashell finds also.Beach erosion is an issue which is the cause for the trees laying on the beach.Just walking on the island was a quiet and peaceful experience.We will be back for sure!
