Huntington Beach State Park, Murrells Inlet, SC

Date of Stay:  Monday October 29 - Tuesday November 13, 2012 (15 nights)

Rate: $32/night

Website:  Huntington Beach State Park (SC)
   16148 Ocean Hwy
   Murrells Inlet, SC 29576

Description:  We have camped here many times before.  Just south of Myrtle Beach but very natural ocean front setting.  Nice nature center, hiking trails, undeveloped beach, Atalaya Castle and paved bike path next to Hwy 17.  Paved roads with sand/gravel/grass parking pads.  Most sites are water and 30A electric while there are a few FHU sites.  We stayed on site 19.  The causeway leading to the campground always has beautiful migratory birds this time of year and an occasional alligator.  I could sit for hours just watching them.  The paved bike path is a great place to ride through the woods.  All this and it’s right on the ocean!

Activities:  Lots to do here!  We came here to join several friends for the Second Carolina Clan Gathering.  We all met each other at an RV-Dreams Rally.  It is a great bunch of folks and we had a great week!  Many of us have SeaEagle kayaks and we went to a local boat launch and spent the day on the Waccamaw River Intracoastal Waterway.  Since this was such a big group of folks (about 40), many people did their own things during the day, going out for lunch with other couples, going hiking together or things like that before getting together for a campfire every night.  Our second week here was much quieter since most folks went their separate ways with smiles on their faces. 

Trash and Recycle:  Dumpsters at the exit near the dump station.  Full service recycle bin there also.
