by John Wod Practice Exam Questions

Families camping at Hunting Island State Park can easily spend their entire vacation at the park while enjoying the natural beauty and hands-on educational programs offered in and around the campground. For those who wish to venture out a bit, a wide variety of fun activities are a short drive away, including:

  • River Safari on Port Royal
  • Water fun and more at Wardle Family YMCA at Port Royal
  • A visit to The Chocolate Tree and large playground in Beaufort.
  • Go on a River Safari at Port Royal Near Hunting Island Campground

Campers who would enjoy a boat ride without the hassle of pulling their own watercraft might enjoy a 90-minute boat ride at Port Royal. Captain Bill offers rides on a 24-foot pontoon boat with full-sized mounted chairs for comfort. Riders can enjoy the beauty of the water and learn about Port Royal as Captain Bill tells of the various animals and plants, history of the area, and perhaps a surprise or two. He might even let one of the kids be captain for a bit.

Captain Bill provides tours seven days per week. Early morning or late evening tours tend to be more comfortable during warmer weather, and Captain Bill may be able to accommodate longer tours if requested.

Visit the Wardle Family YMCA While Camping at Hunting Island

Although Hunting Island offers the Atlantic Ocean, loggerhead turtles, a lighthouse, fishing pier, and many other water-related activities, some people may prefer to swim in a pool. At the time this article was published, the Wardle Family YMCA participates in the A.W.A.Y. (Always Welcome at the YMCA) program. This means that if a camper has a membership at their hometown YMCA, this facility will allow that member in for free. Check with the YMCA regarding the number of free visits offered during the dates of the vacation.

This facility offers an indoor and outdoor pool. If the weather does not work for swimming, the Wardle Family YMCA offers group exercise classes, including Zumba and Zumba Kids, as well as weightlifting, and other health- and fitness-oriented activities. Childcare is provided per their schedule. A playground outside encourages kids to climb, slide, and play.
