Huntington Beach State Park reviews
this is a very well done site: the walks, the nature center, the beach, the camp grounds all work well. You are keeping the legacy in good stead.

My parents first took me to Myrtle Beach nearly 60 years ago and this park is like a walk back in time to what it was like then. It is nestled in the middle of 2500 undeveloped acres. Therefore...

We always like visiting this state park. Beautiful beach and wildlife. The Atalaya tour is a must. There are also great facilities including restrooms and change rooms.

In my opinion, much better than Myrtle Beach or Seaside Beach. So much less crowded and a lot less things touching your legs and feet as you swim. It's a very beautiful place to go for walks on as well. Its also a really great place to dig a hole in the sand, everyone favorite beach activity. It's probably one of my favorite beaches I've been to.
Great beach and much more. The walk to the jetty however was a long one even for somebody in prime physical condition like myself 😄. It took a while so we didn't get to check out the other spots at the park. See my photos for some of the spectacular views and empty beaches. Very cool beach that is natural with dunes and no houses or condos.
This park was great and family friendly. The beach access was close enough to walk and the views were incredible. There are many large open green spaces for the children to run and play together. The oak trees are beautiful. Shore fishing was a huge perk for the family. The whole family enjoyed the self guided tour of the castle too! The only downfall was how early the park store closed when looking to purchase some fire wood.
This is a heavenly oasis for nature lovers!! Oh the birds and peaceful solitude!! The jetty is a memorable walk at the right tide level and the beach feels so private because after sunset it’s only resident campers who can go there. Some campsites can hear the ocean. It’s beautiful! The nature center offers great activities for kids! This park is a fantastic place to ride your bike! We have made many happy memories here and can’t wait to go back! Well worth the daily price of admission! One of the most wonderful special gems on the east coast.
Another favorite state park of mine Huntington Beach has the best views and picture spots to choose from. Atalaya castle sits near the beach and is fun to tour the grounds of. At Halloween they will often do ghost stories at the castle or even fun haunted tours. There is also a jetty walk that is magical to walk at sunset. Take a significant other and journey down the coast until you reach the rocks! I’ve seen sea turtles, dolphins and more. Then of course there’s the alligator trail where you can see alligators in their natural habitat. All in all a very fun place to come and spend a day in the sun.
