Climb 167 Steps To The Top Of The Hunting Island Lighthouse In South Carolina And You Can See All The Way To Infinity

South Carolina’s only public accessible lighthouse is quite a sight to see – even from just the outside. The black and white conical tower looms over the northern end of Hunting Island wedged between the state park’s campground and the main beach. Known as the state’s only lighthouse you can go inside and climb to the top, this lighthouse in South Carolina is sadly temporarily closed to foot traffic as the state makes some much needed repairs for safety concerns. But when it opens back up, you’ll be able to climb the 167-step spiral staircase all the way to the top and step out on the observation tower for a view like no other.

Just to reiterate: Hunting Island Light is temporarily closed for repairs. But in the meantime, Hunting Island State Park (where the light is located) has many, many other activities making the trip here worthwhile any time of year.
