Great for families, close to the beach, several things to see and do...If you like the outdoors. Remember to see the lighthouse, boneyard beach (old trees), boardwalks, coves, trails and more. Very relaxing and plenty to do if you like the outdoors.

Hunting Island is what all the sea islands looked like before the development. It's a true treasure. Natural beauty of a beach left alone.

If you like walking on the beach this is the place to go. The camp ground is right next to the beach, within a few feet . A great place to camp for a week and bring the children. There are RV's AND tents all over the place and everyone gets on well together. it's about 16 miles from Beaufort there are a few nice sea food places to eat on the way in from town, if you don't feel like cooking at your camp sight. We enjoyed our visit, and would go again.

The Hunting Island Lighthouse is very fun to see. There is a $2 per person fee to go up into the lighthouse.The 167 stairs are easy to climb, as there are plenty of large landings for you to catch your breath. The views are spectacular. The historic “houses” near the lighthouse are full of interesting information. Parking can be rough, as it is a very popular state beach. The roads are one way which can be tricky with a lot of people. We are glad we checked out this lighthouse.

This is our favorite coastal state park. The camping is amazing - many beach view spots, wild deer, as well as miles of beaches for fishing, biking, walking, sea shell gathering, or just for relaxing. The beach has a good bit of erosion - but it actually lends to the uniqueness of this park. Your blood pressure will drop about 20 degrees just driving out there through small towns, and over the little bridges. The campground is clean and has a nice store where you can get just about anything you may have forgotten to bring or run out of. The park has nice picnic area and the lighthouse climb is amazing! It's a must because you can see for miles!
