“Great walk on the Beach”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

It was a breeze day and we had a delightful walk on the beach. There was ample parking and tables for picnics. The gift shop had many items for gifts that would be great to take home to family and friends.

“$5 bargin!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

After a long 3 hour drive in the blazin sun this was a great destination. So much to do and it was really cool. We actually saw an alligator in the stream heading to the main entrance!

Was a 103 degree day so we didn't pay $2 to go up the lighthouse and get heat exhaustion, lol but definitely looked cool. Walked the beach and saw little crabs and then big ones. Awesome.

“Love it”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Hunting Island is cool. The kids love the beach area where the beach has eroded, causing the trees to fall. They love playing on & around the trees.

The lighthouse is worth the climb for a nice view. There are picnic tables too. You can fish on the south side from the pier (bait & tackle are available at the campground store). Also souvenirs are available there too.

We've been 3 times now & have enjoyed it.
