“Beautiful Park”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We saw alligators in the nature walk. We went to the castle and it was amazing. I would recommend bringing a picnic and having it on the beach.

“Good walks”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Enjoyed the walks in the park. There was plenty of parking. Facilities were well maintained. There was also a bike trail that we did not get a chance to take.

“SKIP IT...go to marsh walk in Murrels Inlet instead.”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Wow. Talk about a huge waste of money for a large family on a tight budget this was not a good pick for us. The young ones had heard all the hype about the castle and were excited all week about it. What a let down to them when they saw that this castle more resembled an old prison. Not castle looking at all what so ever. My young boys actually cried. Just save your cash and get a pamphlet of it instead.

“South Carolina Treasure”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Huntington Beach State Park is my only choice for the beach in the Myrtle Beach area. Miles of unspoiled shoreline, great parking and restroom facilities, an amazing drive through a waterway to get to the beach, great rangers who are helpful and a lot more await you if you go to Huntington. The property was purchased by the Huntingtons back in the 30's and kept for the public now. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Huntington for preserving this place for all of us to enjoy.

“Must like wildlife”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Every time we visit, we find a vast number of lovely birds, many showing off for the visitors. We have even found wild alligators twice and baby alligators once.
At the beach last year, after a storm, we found thousands of starfish and sea anemones, many still alive, all along the beach.We like that this beach is much less crowded than the others, especially along the boardwalk. The camp/gift shop is pretty good too
