  • This was not the original destination for our trip. Hurricane Dorian caused enough damage on Hunting Island that it was not going to be open during the time of our reservation. We were able to get a spot at Huntington Beach SP for that period and had the best time. The park is very well maintained, the campsites are level and shaded, and the beach was fantastic. Definitely on our list for a repeat visit.
  • My favorite place to camp! Take you bicycles because there are plenty of places to ride! The beach is pristine and is never overcrowded. The north campground is my favorite- it's got large level campsites and clean bath houses. There are some sites with full hookup, but not many. The south campground has all the amenities with full hook up and paved sites, but the campsites are super close together.
