Climb all 132 feet to see amazing views. Hunting Island is a great family and dog friendly place. They keep this park spotless.

The lighthouse offers a cool vantage point to look around the beach and park. It's right next to the beach so there's really no excuse to stop by.

We liked everything. The volunteer who greeted us was charming and the trek up the stairs really fun....and we were celebrating our 46th anniversary!!!

Nice view of the ocean! There are landings every 20 steps or so if you need to rest on the way up or down. It's very windy at the top so may not be suitable for young kids. There's a fee of $5/person to enter this part of the park unless you are camping and then it's free.

This is the only lighthouse open to the public in South Carolina. Climb up to the top and you will be 132 ft above the shoreline. a view worth the effort!
