Huntington Beach State Park Professional Review and Guide
"With 3 miles of oceanfront property, a saltwater marsh, and a freshwater lagoon, Huntington Beach State Park breeds diversity. As pelicans fly overhead, you can see American alligators basking in the sun near the Mullet Pond. Make sure you bring your binoculars, since over three hundred species of birds have been known to inhabit the park, and sea turtles
build their nests upon the shore.
Needless to say, the park gives you beach access at both the
north and south ends, and surprisingly, dogs are also welcome on the south end of the beach but must remain on a leash at all times. A 2-mile nature trail and a paved bike path allow you to explore the far reaches of the park. Take a dip in the ocean, or fish from the beach, but make sure you have a South Carolina state fishing license before casting your line. You are welcome to launch a kayak from the beach, but you must drag it down to the water."
