Unique Features

  • Significant Features: Perhaps the best known "studiers" of wildlife at Huntington Beach State Park are the birders who for years have been coming to see some of the more than 300 species that have been recorded here, giving the park a reputation as a top spot on the East Coast. A birding checklist is available for enthusiasts to print.

    In addition to three miles of beach, much of the park is salt marshes, one of the world’s most productive eco-systems. Much of Huntington Beach’s marsh is now registered under the South Carolina Heritage Trust Program to help preserve its unusually pristine nature.

  • Wildlife: A wide variety of wildlife can be viewed at the park. Visitors may spot pelicans, spoonbills, alligators, nesting loggerhead sea turtles and minks, among others.
