Huntington Beach SC

Going to Huntington Beach SP in a couple of months. Never stayed there before. We always camp at Hunting Island but, thought we'd give this campground a try. Anything special we should know before going?

Hi:

If you are talking about Hunting Beach California I would not recommend. I would go to Newport Dunes in Newport Beach. HP I think used to be a drive in. There is also so nice rv resorts in Anaheim, have a big wallet.....

Since you are from SC, I assume you are talking about the state park just below Merle's Inlet in SC??

Your profile doesn't say what kind of rv you have. So, if it is 40+ feet you will find only a few full hookups and in some areas low hanging limbs. Other than that, it's a nice place.

We were there a couple years ago, nice state park, very wooded sites with some secluded. There are some open areas for bigger rigs. At the time we had a 26' travel trailer and truck and had no problem fitting in the wooded sites.
Be aware of the ants! We had a terrible ant problem, they got in through the electric cord opening. Bring some ant dust and sprinkle it around anything that touches the ground, jacks, hose, tires etc.
Atalaya ruins were interesting, beach was wonderful, highly recommend Murrell's Inlet Seafood Market in Murrell's inlet, best seafood I've had anywhere.
Other than the ants, we had a great time.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the advice on the ants. Any special kind of powder or insecticide to use? I have seen folks using a duster or powder dispenser that appeared to be pretty efficient.
Thanks again,

I think regular old Ortho ant dust will work, the kind you buy in a canister at Lowes or Menards. Outdoor ant spray works too, that's what we used because its all we had with us. Every time I smell that stuff I get a flashback from that trip.

I think you will really like the park. Great beach, nice marsh boardwalk and nature exhibit, walking trail, across the road from Brookgreen Gardens. Brookgreen Gardens created by the folks the park is named after and their home is in the park.

You are just down the road from Murrels Inlet which is the home of many great seafood restaurants, and going the other way a short drive to Pawleys Island. If you are a golfer, Pawleys has some of the best golf courses the MB area has to offer.

They do have some full service campsites but most only have water and elec.

Have a great time.

Tom

Bet it is a lot cheaper than the 5-6 private CG's. Paid $74 a night at MB. Travel Park last summer. At a 10 night stay, it was by far the most we have ever paid.....
