This is sort of a hidden gem of a place. I saw it while on the Gullah Tour(which was awesome!). A very historical place and definite must-see. It is a beautiful place to walk around while getting an understanding and appreciation of history.

While staying in Hilton Head, we made a quick stop here. We all loved it! It was a nice area, clean, and a very natural area to explore. The kids loved seeing all the shells and jelly fish that had washed up.

Visited beach 3 times while on vacation, It's off the beaten path but well worth the visit. Great for shelling, laying on a towel or walking. Couldn't believe all of the fiddler crabs hiding near the grass. The beach wasn't very busy so there was plenty of room to walk and look around.

Happened upon the park by accident. Went in, walked around a bit and picked up some historical tidbits. Beautiful grounds and not extremely time consuming.

The beach here is excellent and it's not crowded like the other beaches, especially Coligny. And there are lots of birds here for the birdwatcher, naturalist and photographer. Skimmers, gulls, sandpipers, godwits, eagles, pelicans, cormorants, terns, dolphins. And the upland portion of the park has a nice boardwalk through a marsh and shrubland where warblers, wrens, vireos, cardinal, ibises, herons,... More

Small quiet park on Hilton Head Island with access to tidal areas and beach. Good for observing the tidal areas, watching sea birds,looking for shells. Best of all, it is free.

Fish Haul/Mitchelville Freedom Park has beautiful views and provides some good history lessons as well. There is also a nice trail that leads to the beach. It was very peaceful to sit and watch the sun rise behind the clouds.

This is a quieter place to see birds and visit the beach. Enjoyed walking up and down the beach. Park very clean and good restrooms available.

This beach among many on Hilton Head Island, is particularly lovely because it is more isolated and therefore often empty of people. It is beautifully maintained and a great place to walk the beach, sit and admire the ocean, and sometimes catch sight of a dolphin.

Went for a lovely walk on a warm afternoon in Jan. Only saw maybe 8 others during an hour visit and most of those from a distance. Felt like I had beach to myself
