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. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Motorhome.

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! We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Motorhome.

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 The bathroom and showers were very outdated and for this reason it looks dirty.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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

On the beach. Cold, but it was winter-can't help that. Had campfire and enjoyed just walking on the beach, etc. Went to see the lighthouse and the park rangers where very nice and helpful. They say the PARK has not changed in 100 years. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for two weeks and loved this campground. Lots of big rig friendly sites, though some of them might be a challenge to get into due to the narrow roads and the trees. Some sites are close together, but several are very spacious. Wi-fi available; strong signal near the campground store where there are tables available nearby for those who can't get a signal from their own site. Loved being close to the beach, but I'd be wary of booking a waterfront site as the shore is being slowly eroded by the sea, and some of those sites could be prone to flooding during storms or high tide. Plenty of trails to walk, and the lighthouse is now open again and can be climbed. We would definitely stay here again. 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.

Nights Stayed – 4 Nights Park Overall – The Park is large, it is well maintained. All employees go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. At busy time the park provide curbside check in. You never get out of your car, well organized. The park is large 200 plus sites. This is a beautiful beach park. RV Type Used - 5th Wheel 28Ft My Site (191) – The site is large and reasonably secluded. The gravel pad is reasonably level. Bath house are nearby. I could not connect to DTV due to the dense canopy that gave us wonderful shade. Restroom - Clean, soap provided but no towels. Average. Bath – Clean, no heat (Nov) Cell Service - Verizon worked, 3 bars and 3G at least Internet Access – Only at the Park Store but free Basic Shopping - Groceries – the park store has the basics. Firewood at the park store is $6 for an average size bundle. I found nowhere else selling it. The nearest large grocery is 17 miles (Lady Island HWY 21) Dining - Lunch at Johnson Creek Tavern just outside the park gates. Great food, with outdoor seating and a great low country view. Would I Return – Yes, but I would try to stay in following beach sites: - Sites on the beach – 45 to 48 - Sites with beach views – 62 to 88, 3 to 11 and 12, 49, 43, 40, 39 We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
