    Beautiful beaches with pristine white sand. This is a very large large park with many areas to observe birds 'n gators. There are paved jettys leading out into the ocean for fishing, many areas to relax with or without the kids to enjoy the beach and play in the warm waves. One of the few local beaches with the feel of being out int the tropics, with no views of hotels or other signs of civilization. Many handicapped accessible areas. Plenty of clean rest rooms. Cute little "camp'' store. Wonderful friendly and helpful staff.A true gem!

    One of the cleanest beaches I have been to. It is close enough to Charleston and Myrtle Beach. A great place to stay. We were in the rustic tent section of the campground. Plenty to do here. We didn't have enough time to do all we wanted.

    I always wanted to work there and now I got my chance. My brother told me about it. He said he goes there a lot. Very clean and the workers are so helpful. I give it six stars . Oh and the real big oak trees are something to see. The biggest ones I ever saw were just as you enter the park.

    Love it here! It is mother nature at her finest. Great beach and the boardwalk or pier (not sure what it is called) that goes out into the salt swamp is fantastic to experience. We went to the nature center and the very friendly staffer allowed my daughter to accompany her while she fed all the creatures. Would highly recommend and will definately return.

    Absolutely beautiful beach. Being a State Park, there are no touristy shops cluttering up the place. There is one gift shop which is very nice. Restrooms and changing area are nice and we're very clean. Love going to this beach.
