We are fortunate that we can really camp all year round where we live (Southeast), but we just recently took our first few camping trips of 2016.
Our first trip was to Hunting Island State Park in South Carolina. This campground is about an 1 hour and 15 minute drive for us so it’s a very doable weekend camping trip for us. We love this campground, most of the sites are very spacious and so far both times we have camped here we have been in spot #36 – which is really spacious and located very close the bathrooms and campstore. If you stay in Loop 1 or 1A – you will be only steps away from the gorgeous beach.
Here is the view of the beach from our camper
There are some sites that back right up to the beach.
This campground as you can imagine is pretty busy and booked most of the time. So you have to be lucky and keep checking for availability but I think it’s worth the effort and a really great campground. The RV sites have water and electric and there are two dump stations at the campground. Most sites have a picnic table and fire ring. So far both times we’ve been there we have had great weather and it was not buggy at all. Off season – I believe is $23.00 – $25.00 a night and peak season is $38.00 a night. (for a Standard Site with water and electric hookups)
There is a lot to do at this State Park, you can tour the lighthouse, go the the Nature Center or hike some of the trails just to name a few things. So far both times we have camped here we have visited the lighthouse and the beach, but mostly enjoyed the relaxing campsite and hope to never have to leave.
Stay tuned and see where we camped the following weekend on our first camping trips of 2016.
