Isla Mas Afuera

3 sites · RVs, Tents4 acres · Murrells Inlet, SC
3.5 acres lot, with plenty of buffer from the few neighbors in immediate vicinity, but so close to everything the inlet area has to offer. Beaches, tidal inlet with boat ramps, Waccamaw River with boat ramps, restaurants, shops, bars, State Parks, nature preserves, fun attractions and much, much more, all just moments away. I live here in a double wide by myself, two outdoor cats. Deer, fox, hawks and the like are common visitors. This is brand new to me, lots of improvements to be made in future to make a guests stay even better, so for right now it’s bare bones. Can accommodate tents or certain campers. No pump out, no electricity or running water for “sites” yet, if ever, but running water is here and available for free. Additions to come very soon: outdoor shower, available compost toilet available for rent while here, fresh herbs, vegetables, fresh local eggs, firewood, and covered gathering/ cooking area, and much more, I’m really excited. Open to idea’s and options. No fireworks/ gunfire allowed at anytime, no “parties”, but campfires, games, fun always welcome. I’d enjoy meeting guests apon arrival, I do have medical conditions that may prohibit it at times though.

The Fern Getaway

This is a place to get away and enjoy nature but you aren't too far from a local grocery store, a few restaurants and a local park. If you are here for the beach, the closest beach and also our favorite is Cherry Grove Beach, only a 30 minute drive. There are a few kayak rental companies we can connect you to if you'd like and we know all the local spots for adventure, food and shopping. Pick a hammock and relax listening to the birds, we also have an outdoor kitchen to prepare food and community firepits to gather around. We want this to be a relaxing getaway, to connect with yourself, others and nature.

The best camping near Huntington Beach State Park guide

Overview

About

One of South Carolina’s most popular beach destinations, beach bums and nature nuts alike can find loads of entertainment and leisure here. Aside from sublime bird watching outlooks and serene walks along the park’s foremost beach, The Grand Strand, outdoor lovers can also hit-up the nature center and education center to learn more about the area’s native flora and fauna.
As one of the most recognizable landmarks in the state, the vast, postcard-esque sands offer sea-breeze camping, nestled inside public campgrounds, and great surfing destinations up and down the coast. And speaking of camping, nearly 200 campsites populate the picturesque landscape, with more than half offering full hook-up services for RVs. After you’ve hooked-up the RV and/or pitched a tent, trudge along the area’s miles of hiking trails, most of which comb through the area’s 2,500-acre freshwater lagoon and shoreline itself.

Fancy yourself a die-hard art fan? Pay a visit in September for the annual, three-day Atalaya Festival. Atalaya is the former home of Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington. The Moorish-style winter home and sculpture studio was built during the Great Depression by the New York philanthropists and hosts over 100 artists and their work during the weekend of the festival. Camping...with crafts, to boot!

Winter’s are a bit icy and cold, so plan to visit around the spring and summer months.

Notable campgrounds

  • Standard Campsites: Equipped with water and electric hookups, these 107 sites offer a comfortable stay amid nature.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early, especially if you plan to visit during peak season from March through September.
  • Consider weekday camping to increase your chances of securing a spot.
  • Keep an eye on the park's website for any updates on availability and potential closures.
  • Explore nearby camping options as an alternative if the park is fully booked.

When to go

The best time to visit Huntington Beach State Park is during the off-peak months, from October to February, to avoid the frequent park closures due to high demand. The park is open daily from 6am to 6pm, with extended hours until 10pm during Daylight Saving Time.

Know before you go

  • Check the park's advisory for updates on temporary closures, especially on weekends and holidays.
  • Arrive outside peak hours, between 10am and 2pm, to ensure parking availability.
  • Remember that dogs must be leashed and are only allowed on the south end of the beach.
  • Atalaya Castle may be closed during large events; contact the park office for current information.
  • Take advantage of the available wifi and EV charging station during your visit.
