#4 of 9 in Nature in Coastal South Carolina
State Park Nature / Park
Pitch a tent and swim, go fishing, or hike at Myrtle Beach State Park. The beach is wide and sandy, and the absence of hotels keeps the area quiet compared to typical beach resorts. Plan a picnic, or ride horses. Children can join nature programs and visit the education center that features displays, aquariums, and reptiles. A campsite with 350 spots for tents and RVs is nestled within a maritime forest; six cabins are available for rent. Remember that there are no lifeguards at the beach.

  • Local will tell you, this beach is one of the very best. Yes, there is per person charge to get in. $5/adult, discounts for seniors and children over 5. Under 5 is free. For that price, you will find a well maintained and super clean beach. A fishing pier that won't charge you additional to go out on it like all the other ones do. The gift shop has all kinds of small things and some food. No restaurant though. The picnic grounds here are all on grass behind the dunes and under a nice shady canopy. They go quickly so plan on staking one out early. In addition to the beach, pier and picnic grounds, this park has a good number of hiking/biking trails through the woods. It also has a great campground for everything from giant RVs down to tents. Can't reserve more than 2 weeks out though.
  • This is a great place for camping. When we first pulled up we were worried about privacy, but it worked out perfectly. You cannot drink alcohol here so if you're a young party animal probably not the best option for you, but for family camping and beach going it's a great place! Awesome convenience store! Beach was crowded, and there are sharks so swim with caution. All in all its a great place and we had a great time!
  • Nice beaches that are clean. Easy access to the beach. The campground is family friendly. All sites have fire pits. All the staff I have met have been very friendly and helpful. It is quiet late at night. Very nice place to stay.
  • It was so beautiful here! We absolutely loved it! For my husband, my son, and I it was $13 to get into the park which wasn't bad. The restrooms were not air conditioned but very clean! The pier was also very clean and well maintained. We saw quite a bit of wildlife. We really enjoyed our trip here!
  • Beautiful! Awesome campground. Beach was wonderful. The kids programs were great. Should have a five star but the shower house gave our cold showers for 4 of the 7 days that I was there.
