Chaplin Community Park

Address: 11 Cast Net Dr.

Chaplin isn’t just a beach park, it’s a community park with everything from basketball and tennis courts to a playground and access to Burkes Beach at the end of Burkes Beach Road. Located at 11 Cast Net Dr., Chaplin Community Park offers up all of the facilities and amenities you need for a wonderful day off. There’s even a dog-friendly park, where your furry friends can roam off-leash in the fenced-in space.

There are seasonal life guards on duty and beach equipment can be rented, as well as basketball and tennis courts, in addition to a multi-purpose field that can be used for everything from soccer and other sporting events to parties and festivities. Just be and sure to contact Beaufort County Parks & Leisure and the Island Recreation Association to schedule any events. Restrooms and outdoor showers are also available.

Trails lead around the park, to the beach and around the area, so anyone interested in exploring can take a little adventure. Or you can bring Fido and take him to the dog park, which is also a part of Chaplin.
