This park is pretty basic in terms of restroom facilities, etc, so don't expect a lot there. However, if you enjoy bird watching, there are usually plenty to see along the marsh walkways. The Atalaya "castle" is worth seeing once. Basically, it is the unfurnished, unrefurbished property which served as the summer home of the Hungtington's (Brookgreen Gardens benefactors). Beach walking is fun here because it's uncrowded and not cluttered with hotels/condos, etc. Walking north to the jetty, affords one a full view of the sandy beach from Murrell's Inlet up to Mrtyle Beach. We saw a huge tarpon cast to the beach by the ocean, along with lots of crabs scooting into their burrows. From the jetty point, we saw several pods of dolphin playing around. The north pavilion seems to be a haven for flies, so I don't recommend it for picnicking.
