4.5
#3 of 9 in Parks in Myrtle Beach
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.

  • Because I could see the skeleton of what would be when the trees and plants were blooming! I'm sure it's stunning! As it was it was still very interesting! There were signs explaining natural...  more »
  • A great fishing Pier and very clean park. You can rent fishing gear at the tourist shop. We did not camp but hope to in the future. The park looked very clean and comfortable for families.  more »
  • We love camping at the MBSP. We spend a month here in January. Not all sites have full hook up, choose carefully. It’s clean, convenient and just feet from the ocean. Love this place!  more »

  • Great place to go for a "Beach Day"! It helps to get an annual pass as the charge is $5 per adult to enter the State Park. Easy parking, very short walk to the beach. Bathrooms , changing rooms, picnic tables in pavilions and Showers are easily accessible. Gift shop and Pier offer fishing supplies, souvenirs and ice cream. Nature trails are interesting and fun for kids and adults alike! Have Fun!
  • Safe. Parking included in 5.00 entry fee. Clean bathrooms. Easy access to beach. Would like to see more of those beach Matt's for us to walk on to be safe getting to beach location. For the disabled would like to improve on distance from parking area or have a folding cart for transporting those with special needs. Also have availability for wheelchair bound family member to be able to enjoy water waves. Sea life. Those big high carts that gave huge wheels.
  • The campsites are awesome,very close to water. The beach is very clean. Its relaxing at the state park beach it's not busy like Myrtle Beach area. They have great programs for family camping. I would rather camp at this park then stay at the hotels in Myrtle area. It's amazing they relocate sea turtles from Myrtle area to the park,so they can have a better chance of survival.
  • First visit and very impressed! I have been to beaches from Texas to Florida and Virginia to Connecticut. Myrtle Beach is well taken care of. Great vibe, clean, and a very relaxing beach. Didn't go swimming but walked to beach and found some nice seashells.
  • Amazing youth event my church the Will of God Outreach Ministry!! We had a great she'd near a clean water source. Not far to the entrance to the beach. The children was close enough to walk and play. They were able to have a water fight and play and enjoy SC grown water melon... It was amazing. We will be back before school start.
