Hunting Island campground is a hidden yet easily accessible South Carolina campground with both RV and tent sites available. As an added bonus, the campgrounds are on a waterfront property with easy beach access. This is just one of many reasons why Hunting Island is South Carolina’s most popular state park.
The campgrounds are relatively small, but as an added bonus all park amenities are within walking distance from each other.
The campsite totals 101 RV and trailer sites, featuring water and electrical hookups. Most of these sites can accommodate RVs up to 40 feet. A night’s stay is about $25 plus taxes and a transaction fee. Unsure when you’ll be able to make the trip? These campsites are available all year round.
Some of South Carolina’s most stunning examples of nature can be found on Hunting Island, including alligators, egrets and herons, ospreys and bald eagles, crabs, jellyfish, and loggerhead turtles.
The park prides itself on its beautiful sunrise and sunset views, noting that each sunrise and set is unique, featuring bold and vibrant colors. The campground encourages photographers of any caliber to ensure they take a shot at capturing sunrise or sundown during their stay, and assure that even overcast days produce spectacular beach shots.
The campground is only 16 miles from Historic Beaufort, featuring antebellum homes and horse drawn carriages for those interested in Historic sites. The town also features art galleries, shopping, and various restaurants.
Leashed pets are allowed at the campsite, and fires are permitted within fire rings. Those looking for a particular sort of relaxing stay may be disappointed to learn that no alcoholic beverages are allowed, so campers should keep this in mind when booking their stay.
Reservations may be made online, while a hotline number exists for those wishing to make a reservation less than 24 hours before check-in. Check-in time is 2 PM, while check-out time is 12 PM noon. The length of stay can range from two nights to fourteen nights.
