My wife and I went to Goose Creek State Park this weekend and had an amazing time. The staff and park rangers are very helpful and nice people. There are 8 miles of beautiful hiking trails that all need to be explored. You need to allow yourself 5 hours or more to walk all trails and really explore. You will see huge loblolly pine trees, huge waterfront live oaks, palmettos, and get to explore a unique swamp. There is a long boardwalk through the swamp and it is absolutely beautiful and full of life. We saw 8 snakes while on our trip, and it was exciting to see them in the wild. While walking up to my camp site for the first time, I saw a bald eagle land in a nearby tree and fly away. Goose Creek is also a great place to bring your kayaks. You have the chance to tour a practically untouched river area. Camp sites are VERY spread out and have woods in between, they have fire pits, lantern hooks, picnic tables, and level sites. Camp gets dead silent when the sun goes down so no partying! Cost is $13 a night and I would highly recommend booking ahead of time because there are only 12 or so sites available.

Beautiful state park located on the Crystal Coast. There are trails to follow or strike out on your own. Bring a picnic basket as there are few to no "fast food" restaurants on site. Pack mosquito spray also since the area is both woodsy and surrounded by water. Well worth the trip. A great day trip, one your family will remember for a long time.
