  • South Carolina could really do a lot to turn this into a better park. There are a lot of attractions, but are somewhat run down.  more »

  • The Holiday Christmas Spirit was not in the air today at the Castle. Bev and I paid to get into the park as expected but after we parked our car and walked all the way around to the front gate we were...  more »

  • Must see when in the area! Please get the audio tour or take a guided tour. Without a guide there is not much to learn. We greatly enjoyed the audio tour! The audio tour took about an hour to complete. The cost was a reasonable $5 per person (plus admission to the State Park). The architecture is very unique and interesting. It is unlike anything I have seen before. It was fascinating learning more about Anna and Archer Huntington. Highly recommend wuthaudi tour!
  • Hidden gem! The place comes out of nowhere when walking along Huntington state beach. It has so much Historic significance to the area. It's truly a fun place for those who appreciate history. Don't bring your kids. They don't care. Also they will trip and that's not fun
  • Absolutely breathtaking with the views it's a very historical site. When you walk-through the castle you can read the plaques in every room to help explain what the room was used for. Some rooms even have some artifacts within the rooms and it's neat to see how their bathrooms were back in the day with the shower stalls and the way the plumbing work as well as the Gardens and the quarters were all the staff had lived and worked. Plus you have the wonderful ocean right there I did see people swimming and laying out on the beachfront. Plus the paths around the grounds are just absolutely gorgeous. Such positive vibes from this day trip.
  • Went here during a craft show. Really nice area. The old castle like building was really cool to walk through, even with the vendors and many other people walking inside. Definitely will come back again when it's not as crowded to take some pictures.
  • From my experiences of when I used to be a member of the yearbook staff, I highly recommend this place as the best one in South Carolina to take senior photos for their senior ads, graduation parties, etc. Amazing architecture, and great scenery, worth it all!
