Hunting Island State Park Visitors Guide
For semi-tropical fun in the sun visit Hunting Island State Park, South Carolina's most popular state park that's right next to Beaufort, SC. While there, you can go boating or paddling in the Harbor River or fishing in Johnson Creek, the lagoon or go surf fishing on the beach or from 1,120 foot pier into Fripp Inlet. There are picnic areas and a playground as well as opportunities for biking, bird watching or hiking the various trails throughout the park.
