Hunting Island is South Carolina's single most popular state park, attracting more than a million human visitors a year. Also attracted to the 5,000 acre semi-tropical barrier island is an array of wildlife, ranging from loggerhead sea turtles to painted buntings, barracudas to sea horses, alligators, pelicans, dolphins and deer, raccoons, Eastern diamondback rattlesnakes and even the rare coral snake. What they all enjoy is five miles of beach, thousands of acres of marsh, tidal creeks and maritime forest, a saltwater lagoon and ocean inlet. Its 4 miles of beach, pristine maritime forest, historic 1873 lighthouse, camping and cabin facilities makes this park one of South Carolina's largest and most visited properties.
