HuntingIsland– the most popular of all 47SC State Parks - w/over 1.5 Mil people visiting yearly. At their nature center are classes on alligators, fish printing, crabbing, salt marsh kayaking, reptiles, pier fishing, sea turtles, & the lighthouse tour. There is a fantastic Nature Centre with programs plus a very long fishing pier.

Hunting Island State Parkwas deemed the best family beach in the SE by the July/Aug issue of Men’s Journal.2 It’s the issue with Lance Armstrong on the cover. (Lance is a cancer survivor & 7 time tour de France winner –this year placing 3rd yesterday- He is committed to spreading cancer awareness & promoting health & fitness). About Hunting Isl the magazine wrote, “Home to the state’s only accessible lighthouse, this quiet semi-tropical island is perfect for kids, with loggerhead turtles, dolphins & deer. In the summer, families can fish off the nearby pier, which juts 1120 ft into the Fripp Inlet, and cook their catch while camping near the lighthouse.

All of the seasonal rental property guests visit the island Nature Center and many take a try at the fishing off the long pier.  A good number of the Fripp Island Property owners belong to the Friends of Hunting Island and support the activities and the education programs sponsored by the Friends for the school field trips, etc.   Many of the programs are open to the public in the nature center, so it's a good idea to put some literature - or the monthly activity calendar - in your rental property for your guests.
