Had the opportunity to stop by for one night as we returned from Hunting Island State Park. This is a hidden little gem that is on my list to spend a couple of nights at. They coyotes howling at night were insane but to me that adds to the camping experience.
Hunting Island State Park is my favorite of the coastal state parks. The wildness at the heart of this gem is undeniable. Hurricanes have not been kind to it over the past few years but it has stood the test of time and shows us all how to adapt and roll with the storms that come through life. If you want to visit a state park that allows you to get in touch with your wild side you must check this place out.
Huntington Beach State Park is beautiful and basically being across the road from Brookgreen Gardens just adds to the beauty. Have had the opportunity to camp here twice. Not much privacy between sites but the park is nice. The birding and wildlife are amazing, especially when you consider how close you are to the rambunctiousness of Myrtle Beach. Needs to be on your list.
Having visited all of the State Parks on the coast Edisto Beach State Park ranks right up there at the top. We have had the opportunity to stay at the ocean front portion and the Live Oak portion (twice). Frankly, the Live Oak is probably our favorite. While the ocean front was nice and we happen to be just across the dune from the ocean it feels more crowded. The Live Oak offers more privacy and we love the woods and shade. We pack our stuff in the car for the day and make our way to the beach for the day then head back to our private campsite at Live Oak for a nice quiet relaxing evening. Either way you can't go wrong with Edisto Beach State Park.
First time staying in a private campground. Sites, although close together, were clean and neat. Wife very happy with clean bathrooms & shower facilities. The top portion has beautiful views but no shade at all. I would be willing to revisit.
