This is a wonderful park on the ocean with a most beautiful beach with some of the most spectacular sunrises on the Atlantic. However, two cons are the tight fit of campgrounds but the view and locale make up for this. Plan to spend most of your time enjoying the public beach and do walk to the driftwood beach on your way to the lighthouse. The second criticism is the state of the restrooms and bathhouses. They are severely out of date and so old they are surely hard to keep clean. No way to dry your hands, for example, too. A big plus is that you can climb the lighthouse and dogs are welcome on the beach. The staff is very friendly and the grounds well kept. We stayed in a 24' motorhome, but if you have a big rig be sure to request a large enough site. Very tight quarters--but the beauty of the park makes up for it. We will make this a regular visit. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Plums in Bufort is a great place for lunch.

Great park, very clean and right on the beach, no matter which site you choose. There are two bridges you must cross prior to the park, the first one is quite narrow, and 35mph. I drove it in a 40'DP, no room, and thankfully did not meet any large rigs going the other way. The second bridge is no problem. Maneuvering throughout the park is fine, just need to go slow, but plenty of other large rigs in the park. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Convenient to the beach! 30 minutes too downtown Beaufort. Great place to relax.

What else can you say about this SP, Hunting Island is just plain great! Nice beaches, trails, camping spot felt like you were on some tropical island. I wasn't on the beach, but that is fine, I'll try the beach sites next time as this was a last minute stop for 2 nights. The lighthouse was really cool to walk up and around at the top. Great photo ops everywhere! Get up early for super sunrise pics! Bath house near my spot needs a major overhaul, but overall, no complaints. 50amp service and the 110v worked great. I will return for a longer stay. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Could be much better if they would remove many trees encroaching roads and sites, and especially removing trees in the middle of sites. Many sites are way off level and hard to access even with our 26 foot motorhome. Beach loop 1-50 is the best, coolest, and least buggy. Our site 112 was loaded with biting gnats even at midday. Beach very pretty but mostly disappears at high tide. Weak Verizon mifi and cell sgnal, but we could use them. Electric and water were good. Probably will not return.

This park is very nice but the loop we stayed at was very difficult to maneuver. We stayed in site 115 which much to our surprise was layed out so that we could not back up into it. We had to drive the loop against traffic in order to be able to get into our site. We arrived after dark and found this to be extremely difficult. You see this loop is called the gauntlet. The road is tiny and there are trees right next to you and over you on both sides. Not to mention cars that are sticking out of their sites. Lots of trees had the scars from trailers hitting them. This part of our stay was very stressful. The bathroom and showers were very outdated and for this reason it looks dirty. Raccoons and deer coming up to our site in the middle of the day! The beach was great! The beach was not very full even though it was Memorial Day weekend. The wonderful thing too was that we could take our dogs on the beach. For this reason mainly, we would stay again but we would not come in after dark and would not stay in the site 115. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We love the park, but just a heads up the bath houses are very dated. On the plus side, we had a trail leading us straight to the beach from our site. (#96) The park is always full and you have to book months in advance, but it is worth it. The park was dead quiet at night even though it was full. A very family friendly place and the beach was awesome! We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

I have been coming to this park for 10 years now. This is our favorite campground on the east coast. It is getting harder and harder to book a site here because of the popularity of the State Park, but a stay here is well worth the effort. It is not luxurious, but the natural amenities cannot be beaten. The roads are tight to extremely tight, so be careful about what site you pick and do not be afraid to have someone spot you through the tight places. Others have left scars on the trees!

Stayed in oceanfront site #46, a beautiful setting to wake up to every morning. The staff are friendly and helpful. A 10 all around. We will definitely return. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Campsites next to beach dunes are a feature of this state park. Miles of beach stretch down past the lighthouse which can be climbed ($2), to a fishing pier at the south end of the park. Miles of hiking/mountain biking trails extend through the woods. A well stocked camp store/office offers wi-fi connection with tables outside. Paved roads run through sandy sites, most are level although some in the west side of the park have elevation. Some roads are narrow and wind through the sites southwest of the office. Good AC voltage and fair broadcast TV reception from Savannah and Charleston. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice setting with beach access; however, the bathrooms left something to be desired. Also, there are no sewer hookups, which is not a problem if you are not staying longer than a few days. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of our favorite beach campgrounds. Most sites are far enough from each other for privacy. The restrooms are convenient to most sites and were always clean during our stay. The restrooms are old and the showers are not the best but they were always clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Easy access to beach depending on your site location. There are great restaurants within 10 miles and seafood to purchase within 2 miles. TV reception with HD antenna was good - 13 channels. Some folks with satellite TV had trouble getting through the trees. Wireless Internet is available near the camp store and was super fast. Sprint service was OK but not great - Internet was sometimes slow on phone. If you want the best sites you must reserve 11 months ahead on the SC web site. Great beach and local attractions if you like the outdoors and low country atmosphere. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Motorhome.

The ratings for this campground (since we are rating a campground by definition) should be different than the rating for the island itself. Note that the entire island is owned by the state park and it is absolutely beautiful and unspoiled. The campground doesn't rate nearly as well. Where the lack of development has created value in the beauty of the island, it has not created beauty or function in the campground. Roads are narrow and rutted and have trees right next to them. Campsites are huge, but have trees right in the middle of them. We saw numerous people having a very difficult time getting into their campsite. Leveling is also an issue, as is flooding. We saw no attempts at drainage; when it rained, many sites were completely underwater. The dump station has crumbling cement. As there are no sewer connections, this is particularly noteworthy. Cell phone reception is minimal, so be aware. The state park has WiFi, but you need to be within a few feet of the store for it to work. Positives are that the campground is in a beautiful forest and it fronts a wonderful beach. Check-in is aided by a wide driveway with room to park and uncouple a tow vehicle. Volunteers are plentiful and helpful. We couldn't say the same for the park rangers. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Really liked this state park. The park had the ocean view, the wood view, and 30/50 amp service. If you like quiet and peace, this is the place. Will be back. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a charming spot among the live oaks and palmetto trees. We camped right by the ocean after reserving 9 months ahead and loved it. Such a great view of the sea to wake up to. Weather was nice enough even in January to sit outside and walk on the beach to the lighthouse, though a cool, rainy front moved through. Bathrooms are old but kept clean. We got TV reception with our antenna and some 3G reception for iPad, though not strong. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Motorhome.

A great campground! We were in a waterfront lot (#54) for 2 nights that had a spectacular view. Unfortunately, the way the ocean is eroding the beach, that site may not be there next year. The park was at about 3/4 capacity but everyone was very quiet. Since it was December, the weather was cool but we had some great walks on the wide beach. The restrooms and showers were clean. We had decent cell data reception (3 bars with Verizon) and picked up 12 TV channels. The staff was very helpful, and the camp store had a large selection of grocery items. The campground has 2 dump sites, with the one by the entrance having both a left and right side dump. We look forward to a return trip to Hunting Island.
