Huntington Beach State Park, SC

Weather permitting, Saturday, we are headed to Huntington Beach State Park, SC.
Any recomendations around the area?
Thanks,
Kathy & John

If you like seafood, I'd suggest a short drive up to Myrtle Beach to dine at the Sea Captain's house. Their menu is on their website. Even closer would be a drive up to Murrell's Inlet, where there are many great seafood restaurants, though not many with the same ambiance as Sea Captain's House.

We have camped there and love it. It is one of the few beaches in SC where you can have your dog on the beach year round unrestricted. Most beaches in the state restrict dogs to non-summer months or early AM or late PM hours. Most campsites give good satellite reception. Wifi is only at the park store. There are about 20 or so sites with sewer, but the dump station is convenient at campground exit. The park is known for great bird watching and alligator viewing. The Huntington family (Huntington Bank and Huntington Beach, California is named for this family) donated the land for the park as well as Brookgreen Gardens (right across the road from park entrance). Their summer house remains is in the park and you can tour that. Brookgreen gardens is an amazing walking adventure, with beautiful gardens, wildlife,and various sculptures (Mrs. Huntington was a sculptor) throughout. I don't recall the entrance cost, but the ticket is good for 7 days so you don't have to rush through in one day. Check at park store as there is a discount if you are camping at the park. Bicycling is good in the park. Murrell's Inlet has great seafood restaurants and is only 2 miles north of the park. Further north is Surfside Beach and Myrtle Beach with many eating choices. It is still "off season" so I do not know what is open. We prefer Huntington Beach park to Myrtle Beach State Park, but both are nice.
