There are two state parks near Surfside Beach: Huntington Beach State Park and Myrtle Beach State Park. Huntington Beach State Park offers beach camping, fishing and bird watching. The Environmental Education Center has programs and activities for all ages. The park’s freshwater lake is home to alligators and the area is inhabited by mink and loggerhead turtles. This state park was the winter home of sculptress Anna Hyatt Huntington and philanthropist Archer Huntington who left the land, their Moorish-style home called “Atalaya” and Brookgreen Gardens in Surfside Beach as their legacy. Each year the prestigious juried Atalaya Arts and Crafts Festival is held in and around the home.
