  • The Festival of Lights is only $20 a carload and is well worth it. I recommend you go after 7 pm as the parking inside the park at the gift shops are full between 6 and 7 on weekends especially. The F...  more »
  • We went through the lights shortly after they opened. It was surprisingly not overcrowded. It is a wonderful display of lights. The drive-through is nice and then you can get out to eat and visit. Whe...  more »
  • This park offers a lot for the nominal entrance fee. I am a frequent visitor and love the scenic hiking/biking trails and expansive doggy park. Don't miss their annual Holiday Festival of Lights!  more »

  • The light show was truly remarkable this year, I highly recommend it if you have young kids. Make sure to stop the the sweet shoppe too. The water park is an great place during the summer too. I've also stayed at the campground and would recommend it as well. The shuttle to downtown is a great benefit to take advantage of.
  • The best most organized park I've ever seen. Prompt and helpful staff, great walking and bike paths. Good pool in warm wearher, and top ten X-mas light shows in the country. Annual pass very affordable. Gives access to Folly Beach County park parking spaces; a premium commodity.
  • Lots of things for the kids. Light show is beautiful. We enjoy it every year. I think they also have other events and things to do throughout the year. We however only go when the lights are out around Christmas time. Good time for kids and adults.
  • Highly recommend this destination. A few need to know tips. Arrive early, very early to avoid long wait to get inside. Be prepared to venture out on foot for some walking experiences. Dress and prepared to walk up to 1-2 miles. Lots of fun for the whole family.
  • Holiday Festival of Lights , what a beautiful evening ! So much to see and if you park and get out of your car you can ride a train ($3/adult) , make S'mores and so much more. What a wonderful time for $20 a car load. We were only visiting for 3 days and so glad we were able to spend a few hours here.
