Beautiful state park! We spent the day at the beach with our kids, and had a great time. Searching for hermit crabs and shark teeth proved to be the best part. Very nice drive through the park as well. We will visit again before we...More

I grew up in Beaufort so I am very partial to this state park. It is peaceful and delightful . The vegetation and animals are wonderful to view. Of course the light house is a must to see.

Stopped and walked the beach to see the downed trees and enjoy the afternoon. The large mosquito population got their share of my blood. The crowd was pretty full on a Saturday but well behaved.

We had a good time at this beach. The ride through the tall palm trees was very cool. It reminded me of Jurassic park. The bathroom was clean. They had lifeguards on duty and they had outside showers. Coolers are allowed as long as you...More

There are several listings for RV rentals in the Murrells Inlet area. I'm sure if you check around the area you can find what you need. You might check with the park office to see if they can advise you of any.

Yes. But the roads are one way from the parking area to and from the entrance of the park and the off-pavement areas wouldn't be too bike friendly. Look to Google Map to see more.
