$2/person (cash) to go up in thepo lighthouse. Very nice, friendly staff. Beach is gorgeous. Don't forget the nature center!
This is a small but great state park. It has restrooms and beach access. They charge per person. They do offer a senior discount but only if from SC. It doesn't say that on the sign. It looks like a lush tropical jungle driving in and out. Its very clean but rustic you can find shells and watch the dolphins feed at sunset. There is a lighthouse also but it closes at 4. We will definitely go back to this park and the beach.
The beach was nice. There's a small entrance fee to get into the park, and don't forget to stop at the visitor's center. And when you do, see if you can spot the alligator that lives in the pond just outside the building.
I forgot to add to bring your own food and drinks as there are no local restaurants within about 30 min.
Amazing campground! Clean and right next to the beach. They do not have enough garbage around so we can understand the significant raccoon problem. Make sure your garbage is contained at all times!!!!! We saw lots of bags torn apart while there.
This is a GREAT spot! Beautiful beach, and cool jungle! The bathrooms could use some work. But all in all South Carolina has a gem here!
While the drive through the park is special on its own, the real gem is the Hunting Island Lighthouse. It's a mere $2 to climb the landmark and whether your a photography buff, like me, or simply like a good panoramic view - this is a must do.
When you're done with the that your head Dow. To the beach to see a landscape of beautiful driftwood.
Beautiful drive through the park...the lighthouse climb is a must and the beach is stunning
I loved this place! Nice drive, beautiful and unique forest, wonderful lighthouse to climb, great beach to walk - Driftwood forest.. 💛
Because I loved this place so much, I need to add: This part of the barrier island is one of the only left in its natural habitat... The palm tree forest is an enchanting drive to the Lighthouse and beach... This was our second stop on our trip... You can't beat the $5 per person park fee... The access to the 'driftwood tree' beach and stretch of sand is a delight... One of my favorite finds...
