I have to say that this was one of my favorite places to go during our visit to Myrtle Beach. We only visited for a few hours but for campers they do have camp grounds. They also have picnic tables which we did use and really enjoyed. My favorite part was the Atalaya Castle. The story behind the home was fascinating and the grounds...especially the inner courtyard was absolutely beautiful and wonderfully maintained!! The castle is huge and we had a great time exploring it. If you love history this is definitely a great place to visit. We also walked along the beach which was very nice and while we were there it was very quiet and peaceful. The whole park is great and the Gift shop was nice...we bought several souvenirs. We would recommend anybody visiting the Myrtle Beach area to visit Huntington Beach Park while in there!

Huntington Beach State Park is a great family oriented state park. It is located in Murrells Inlet, which is conveniently located to Myrtle Beach's Grand Strand. They have primitive sites, sites with water and electricity only, and a few reservable full hook up sites. It is home to the landmark, Atalaya, the winter home of Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington, a home built in the style of Moorish architecture. It is a state treasure.

I found out about Huntington Beach State Park when I did an online search for campgrounds along the Grand Strand.

The campground at HBSP was very nice and seemed to be well maintained. Most of the sites had more than adequate shade,
but were also accommodating for even the largest of RVs. We stayed in a pop-up camper with our two dogs, a pitbull/chow cross and a German shepherd dog.

The campground is laid out very well. The sites are situated such that campers are not crammed in on top of one another, and there was plenty of room for our two dogs to be tied on 20 foot long tie outs without being in the way of other campers or getting tangled up in each other's lines. The campground appears to be extremely dog friendly, with 'poop bag stations' in several locations in case you forget to bring a bag with you when you walk your dog. There were many, many campers there with dogs. Beach access is easily accessible to everyone, including people in wheelchairs or parents with strollers, via a raised boardwalk from the campground all the way to the beach. There was a floodlight on the side of the bath house, which made me feel safe
going to the bathroom during the night, as it lit up the area very well, without being obtrusive and shining directly into the campsites.

The bath house that was near our campsite needed to be updated. There were some cracked and loose tiles on the floor, and green stuff growing in a couple of the faucet heads, both at the sinks and the showers. There was indication of mildew/mold on the benches at the showers themselves, and the tile grout in the showers needed to be scrubbed because it looked dirty. There
was also little privacy for those taking a shower. The only curtain was for the shower itself, so you had to undress and dress either in the shower behind the curtain, or out in the open for whoever walked by to see. I overheard other campers saying that the other bath house was newer and better, but I did not see it for myself. The toilets, countertops, and sinks appeared clean. We and other campers did use our Lysol spray in the shower areas, though.

Not directly related to the campground, I did want to say that the Sandpiper Pond trail needs some work. I was not impressed with it at all. The pond is grown up and so are the viewing sites, so we really only got to see the pond at the beginning of the trail, at the first raised viewing area. It's a fairly long trail, and is a bit confusing, because it was not well marked. The freshwater lagoon and saltwater marsh, on the other hand, provide excellent wildlife viewing opportunities. We saw several alligators, herons, and other birds. The Education Center at HBSP provides some good programs and 'excursions' that are fun for young and old.

PROS: Campsite spacing, dog friendly, floodlight on bath house, beach access
CONS: Lack of privacy & cleanliness in showers

If you're looking for an authentic, traditional Grand Strand beach destination, this is your place. Huntington Beach State Park is a good place to go if you want to stay away from high-rises and see nature's beauty at the ocean. It also has an old castle/mansion that is fun to explore.

Huntington Beach State Park is a remarkable place of varied habitats.

A freshwater lagoon on your way in houses alligators which when you watch carefully you can see! A salt marsh has an abundant ofplants and animals.

There is a Birdwatching area as well as an information center where you can touch a stingray or watch the aligator!

A nature trail extends through the forest and winds along boardwalks in the marsh, where visitors view alligators from observation decks.

We loved visiting Atalaya, the winter home of Anna Hyatt Huntington (American Sculptor), which is open for tours year-round and sometimes offers ghost tours!

PROS: So much to see & do!
CONS: Watch for snakes!
