Hunting Island State Park made USA Today's list of '20 stunning state parks across the USA' for its breathtaking ocean views and for having the only publicly accessible lighthouse in the state of South Carolina.
There are more than 7,500 state parks across the U.S., all of which feature attractions that reach beyond your typical interpretation of a picturesque park.

The "single most popular" state park in South Carolina attracts more than a million visitors annually and was recently named a top 10 beach in the U.S. by TripAdvisor. On the well-preserved, 5-mile stretch of South Carolina coast you'll find a maritime forest, the only publicly accessible lighthouse in the state and the white-tipped waves of the Atlantic. southcarolinaparks.com
