Hunting Island State Park, SC incorporates the best of the beach and camping all in one. We took our tent and two dogs on an adventure we won’t forget. The beach is feet away from the campground making it convenient to head back to camp at any time for breaks or mealtimes. Dogs are allowed in certain areas of the beach and I think our furbabies had the best time ever laying in the sand and chasing the tide.
Most parts of the beach were almost empty making this one of South Carolina’s best kept secrets for beach vacations. The campground was clean and included everything you would need, a general store, playground, picnic shelter, trails for hiking and a rental cabin for those that prefer glamping.
A short drive over to the public beach park area where there is public access to the beach, picnic tables, volleyball, biking trails, playground and a light house that you can tour for $2. The beach in this area may be more natural than you are used to, but that’s why we loved it. The vegetation and wildlife made this a beach with lots of nooks and crannies to explore.
On our way back to camp we drove past The Marsh Boardwalk and had to stop to see what we could find. It was so serene and we had a blast photographing all of the wildlife that we saw. It’s just a short walk through the marsh but we must have spent hours there.
