Welcome to Hunting Island State Park
Named One of America’s Top Ten Beaches, Hunting Island State Park, 16 miles east of Beaufort, is South Carolina's most-visited state park. The park features three miles of clean, safe beach along the Atlantic Ocean; picnic tables and camp sites with an ocean view; and an historic lighthouse -- built in 1873 – open to the public that offers a bird's eye view of the pristine island and coastal waters. But there's more to the 5000 acre Hunting Island State Park than its magnificent beaches. Miles of hiking trails meander through the subtropical forest of palmettos, pine and moss-draped oak, and may offer glimpses of the island’s abundant bird and wildlife residents. A traditional Lowcountry pier provides the perfect venue for fishing and crabbing -- and it’s also a great spot to watch dolphins do their own “fishing.” A long, ambling marsh walk reveals secrets of the tidal marsh and presents an opportunity to watch thousands of scurrying crabs. A large lagoon is the perfect staging area for launching kayaks, and the Visitors Center and Nature Center provide a wealth of information about the coastal ecology. Hunting Island is South Carolina's single most popular state park, attracting more than a million human visitors a year. Also attracted to the semi-tropical barrier island is an array of wildlife, ranging from loggerhead sea turtles to painted buntings, barracudas to sea horses, alligators, pelicans, dolphins and deer, raccoons, Eastern diamondback rattlesnakes and even the rare coral snake. Amenities include a fishing pier and some of the state's most desirable campsites.
