“Beautiful photo opp on beach”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

When you arrive at the beach, best at low tide, you will find a "boneyard" of trees and rocks on the beach which has eroded and become a fascinating landscape for photography.

“Just a great place.”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Great beach, great park. There is nothing bad about this place except when there is line to get in. They are going to fix that problem. Great for picknicking, swimming, or just enjoying the beach.

“Beautiful place to visit”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Took my wife to see during the Thanksgiving break, it was beautiful as always. Forgot how much they charge to get in though, 5 bucks a head. No military discount, and not far from two installations. Guess they need a lot of dough to keep it all looking so pristine.

“Nice side trip out of Beaufort, SC”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

This is a nice side trip out of Beaufort , S.C. The pond near the visitor's center has alligators that you can watch and the visitor's center itself has a lot of info on the park and wildlife there.
