Frostly cookout on New Years eve was fun and the boys could bring their dogs for a run on the beach. Grills and picnic tables provided with restrooms and playground. Park closes at 5 pm. No exceptions though.

Isle of Palms County Park has many things available for those who may not want to "rough it." A parking lot rather than meter parking, restrooms, changing rooms, showers, umbrella rentals, and some light food and beverages during the peak seasons. Lifeguards are also at this portion of the beach during peak season. So if you want to visit the... More

Very nice public beach with changing rooms, showers, boardwalk, and pier. Lots of people enjoying the day with their dogs too. Our teenagers had never seen an ocean and this was a great experience for them. We visited on Saturday November 26th. It was very breezy but relatively warm to us as it was in mid 60's. We all got...

Near Ocean View condos and the pier, this nice little park is great for kids with jungle gyms and four changing stalls. Plenty of showers to wash the sand off when you come from the beach. Just big, with several nice access ways to the beach and plenty of parking! Enjoy!

On a one-day visit when usually next door at Sea Cabins, came to the Park. A lovely lady, wish I could remember her name, welcomed us. The facilities were clean and comfortable.

We walked to the beach and it was refreshing and wonderful. We rescued a star fish that was hung up ow hike the tide was going out, also saw horseshoe crabs laying around. They were dead. Watch a cargo ship coming in and lots of kids playing. Just a great morning

Visiting at the end of September was a great time because tourist season was over, but it was a beautiful day and there was plenty of parking. The beach wasn't crowded at all, but had friends, couples bicycling and parents and children playing near the water. It's very family and pet friendly. I would definitely visit again!
