Hi,
Wife and I are thinking about making a short trip to Huntington Beach State Park in South Carolina. Anyone been there and can give me your thoughts and opinions?

It appears all the full hook-up sites are reserved. We will be fine for 4 nights on the holding tanks. Any suggestions on loops or sites? How about things to do outside of Myrtle Beach?

Huntington is a great place to go. Great beach, marsh walk, or just walk around the property. They have some very nice secluded spots with plenty of shade. These are in the higher numbered spots. HBSP is directly across the street from Brookgreen Garden which as lots to do and see. Plenty of really good seafood just down the road in Muriells inlet. Laid back shopping in Pawleys Island. No real need to go near MB unless you like all that stuff.

While there drive over to MB State Park (not a long drive). We go there a lot too. Has more full hookups.

HB is a great park to be near but not within the MB congestion. I agree entirely with the comments of the previous poster. Another plus - HB originated as the home of a very wealthy New York couple. The remains of the home can be toured for a small entry fee. The home is in a Spanish style that is an interesting example of an upscale early 20th century home. Too bad it has not survived in its original glory.

Brookgreen Gardens has a lot of art displays, some of which was produced by the wife of the HB owners. You can also take a boat ride showing original rice fields as the Gardens were created from three former rice plantations. Extensive information about the culture of the slaves used to operate the plantations also exists. On one visit my wife and a couple of friends spent two days touring in the Gardens.

HB Park is devoted more to serenity and art. The MB Park is more a regular beach park. It is located very close to the ocean and at the south end of the MB beachside road. One problem is that the airport is nearby so there is jet noise. Offsetting that is a fishing pier that was free when we visited about 10 years ago. I would take a family to MB Park because it is near to more attractions; for a couple HB is definitely a better choice.

One of the best state park camp grounds we stayed in. We were there about 4 years ago and paid $18 a night for W&E. I believe we were in site 127. Very wooded and isolated which we prefer. About a 5 minute walk to the beach. They have a great nature program and nice camp store. Make sure you visit Atalaya, the former home of the Huntingtons. it's within walking distance of the campground. Right up the road is Murrel's Inlet and some good restaurants like Druken Jacks.

Awesome campground, but be prepared to go to war with ants. We were inundated with ants while visiting there a year ago. Wife went crazy for a few days after we left. Took quite a while to eliminate them all from the motor home.
Happy trails

Seriously? Was there last October and didn't see any. Oh, hang on, that's probably why they're called noseeums? [emoticon]

Nice park, sites are a bit close together in spots, nothing new there.
Would go back.

Double ditto. We like quiet and serene so HBSP is one of our faves. If you go to their website you'll find they list things to do in the area.

We live near there and enjoy spending a few days at the park. Tour Atalaya and take a bike ride across hwy 17 to Brookgreen Gardens. It is an outdoor sculpture garden and more. There are a number of really good seafood restaurants up the road in Murrells Inlet, several with live music most with outdoor seating.


Looking forward to new adventures and new friends.

I just made reservations for the March 3 - 5th. Surprising that not many sites are available. Should be a good trip to start camping for 2018.

Thanks for your responses.
