Buck Hall is a very popular place. The full-site campground is nearly always full. It is a good idea to reserve a site well in advance through Reserveamerica.com.
Tent sites are nice, as the are right on the water, but they are right next to each other in a fairly small space.
The boat launch will be active all day long, most any day of the year. Fall is the busiest time, during recreational shrimp baiting season.
Day-use activities include picnicking, wildlife viewing, fishing, boating, hiking and biking.
A premier attraction at Buck Hall is the southern terminus of The Palmetto Trail. The first passage of the trail starts at the day-use parking area on the boardwalk, and continues west for 7 miles along the intracoastal waterway, salt marshes, Awendaw Creek, and an upland forest. Unique opportunity to walk through 4 distinctly different ecosystems in a fairly short distance.
Buck hall is busy, but it's fairly quiet most of the time. Buck Hall is also a clean and safe place. There is a camp host in the campground most of the year, and the area is patrolled by the US Forest Service Law Enforcement.
