Huntington Beach State Park reviews
This is a very nice State Park with paths to walk on. There's a Nature Center with live creatures. The marsh is vast. You can even spot an occasional alligator. The Huntington Castle is interesting... more »
The park is very nice with lots of walkways and trails for walking (use bug spray!). We also toured Atalaya $2 each). It was very interesting. Saw tons of birds and gators as well as a little snake. more »
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.
