  • The moorish style architecture on the Huntington House is awesome. The story of the poet philanthropist and his amazing sculptor wife is great. The best is the beach with no houses. Great sand

  • 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.
  • Absolutely one of the most well maintained state parks. The staff are exceptional. The variety of activities provide something for everyone whether you want a great hike, a picnic in the shade, an afternoon of birdwatching or a day on the beach. Camping areas range from large paved sites to primitive. Restroom facilities are located throughout the park and are always spotless. The gift shop is well stocked with souvenirs, snacks and basic camping supplies. The wildlife and sealife are abundant. Huntington Beach State Park is a beautiful treasure.
