    We love to camp at Huntington Beach SP. A couple of my favorite activities is to hunt for shark's teeth on the beach and bike on the many roads going through the park. You definitely need reservations here unless you arrive on a Sunday during the off-season.

            We stayed at 17 but there was a picnic shelter right behind us lucky no one used it so we ended up nice spot. All the outside by the beach side are nice. On our next visit we would stay at 103 to 121 they are more in the woods and secluded.

                We were there from March 21 thru 29 on site 95. Ive got 95 reserved from April 10 thru the 18 next Easter. I was really surprised by the newly paved roads when I got there last spring. Brookgreen across 17 is a nice tour especially when the azaleas are in bloom. The best restuarants are right along old 17 through Murrells Inlet but we often found ourselves chowing down at K&W's cafeteria.

                  The paved road is a BIG improvement. The old dirt roads were always full of holes and DUSTY. Everyday, a tractor with a leveling blade would go around and around the campground in a futile attempt to get the roads more level.

                  Be sure to take a flashlight with you if you wander around the CG at night. The alligators from the adjacent fresh water pond sometimes wander into the CG at night. You definitely do not want to surprise them or step on them. :shocking:

                  Brookgreen Gardens is well worth going to. The admission tickets are good for seven days, so you do not have to wear yourself out trying to see it all in one day. One of our favorite spots is the Muses Garden. The pool is surrounded with trellis of Jasmine. When it is in bloom, you will think you have gone to heaven. There are benches under the trellis so you can watch the fountains and absorb the perfume in the air around you.

                  One of our favorite restaurants in Murrells Inlet is Nances. We have not been there since 2004, so I hope it is still there. All the tables had holes in the middle with garbage pails underneath. One of the favorite things to get there was baskets of oysters. The shells just got pushed down the hole in the middle of the table. My favorite was the sea scallops though. If you get there for the 'early bird', you get a break on the price.

                    Nances is still there. We have had many a meal there. Our favorite restaurant in that area is the Gulfstream Cafe in Garden City Beach. Hope to partake while we are there.

                      Now you've got my attention. Sounds like that last dog walk before bed will have me on full alert.

                      Any thoughts on site #100? I have it reserved for a couple weeks in December. I've never been there so I just picked a site out of the air.

                        I just checked the CG map and see that 100 is one of the few sewer sites. We always stayed at one of the W/E sites. All the Sewer sites are pretty good because they were made for RV's. BTW, it is not a normal occurrence for the gators to wander into the CG. But it does happen. As the ranger told us, if you see a bump in the road, there are no speed bumps in the park..... If you have never hunted for the shark teeth on the beach there, be sure to ask a ranger about it.

                          Walk by #100 number of times. It's nice spot. I though it had a few big trees for nice shade and lot of open space behind the site.
