Hunting Island is one of South Carolina's last undeveloped barrier islands accessible by road. It boasts white sand beaches, salt marshes, ancient forests, and abundant wildlife habitats, including nesting sites for threatened loggerhead sea turtles. Enjoy Hunting Island State Park and help us support the Park by becoming a Friend of Hunting Island.

"As per South Carolina State Parks, all state parks in South Carolina will be closed through Thursday, April 30, to support the state’s response to COVID-19. The closure is designed to keep visitors and employees as safe as possible by mitigating the spread of the Coronavirus."
