The camp spots are large and well maintained. The park itself is well kept and clean. We used 2 of the bath houses and one of them was considerably nicer. The beach access that is closer to the entrance is much nicer and easier to walk on, Boardwalk pretty much the entire time. The other access has many tree roots... More

This is a great family beach. Easy to get to. We were so happy we joined the state park passport plus that lets us into any SC state park. So much to do. We look forward to exploring as much as we can.

Family wanted to get away from the Myrtle Beach scene. We drove on down to Huntington Beach State Park and this was exactly what we wanted. Open sand and a good 20 yards between each set up. Well worth the entrance fee. We took the time to walk down to the peer and look out over Murrells Inlet. Could not... More

This was an awesome beach with plenty of room to relax and not be overcrowded. We enjoyed the beach as well as the picnic area. Nice bathrooms and the outside showers made it nice not to take all the sand back in our cars. My future son-in-law proposed to my daughter on the beach so this will be a place... More

Beautiful subtropical grounds and beach area with historic homesite of famous artist. Wildlife viewing is excellent, close to Brookgreen Gardens and a short drive to the commercial areas of Myrtle Beach make it a favorite spot.

Absolutely beautiful beach with nothing but the sand and ocean scenery to take in. Lots of families grilling and enjoying the sun. Clean is an understatement here. We took a day from our vacation in Cherry Grove to drive down and sure glad we did, it is breathtaking! Places to camp, games to borrow for the day, grilling and picnic... More

We love to picnic here! This is the home of the atalaya castle, which is cool to walk thru. Great photo spot. We like to take the kids to the ocean from here because they have nice bathroom facilities. We try to go every Mothers Day with family and friends.

What a beautiful place! Wow! Very glad we went here. We stayed at another local beach and decided to drive here to check it out. Not only were we blown away by the beautiful clean beach area but we also got to tour a castle. Atalaya's castle was so magical. We also drove through the campground and it looked so... More

Words cannot describe how much our family loved spending our vacation here! We stayed in Murrells Inlet and spent every day on the beach at Huntington Beach State Park. Definitely take the Atalaya tour to get more of an understanding of the beautiful area. The waves were perfect, the shells beautiful, the crabs funny and the beach clean. Hope to... More
