HUNTING ISLAND STATE PARK
This popular state park, located near historic Beaufort, is a 5,000-acre secluded barrier island of semitropical beauty.
As the name implies, the island was once used for hunting deer, raccoon, waterfowl and other small game.
As a state park, the island serves as a preserve for its abundant wildlife. With more than four miles of beach, a maritime forest and extensive saltwater marsh, the island is also a retreat for people who love a natural coastal environment.
An historic 19th-century lighthouse is Hunting Island?s most popular landmark, where guests can climb to the top for a spectacular view of the coastline. The lighthouse and its complex are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
