Second Time Is a Charm

Came back to walk on the beach and was pleasantly surprised to get a different rate and it is not even after Labor Day. They swear the rates have not been reduced so it is a mystery as to why I was charged more the first time around. Was able to enjoy some of the restaurants in the area even if we are still in the pandemic. Only wish the dumping station was expanded so the line would make faster

Packed In Like Sardines

Rigs are VERY close to each other with little privacy. The beach is nice and within walking distance, many sites with hookups, dump station, and laundry, but because the sites are so tight to get into and on top of each other, and the high price, we were disappointed. Not my idea of camping. Will not return.

Very Nice

First time here. Had a bike week here at the same time, so half the campground was bikers. Otherwise quiet and peaceful. The beach is a short walk and wonderful. Park is clean. Bathrooms ok. Site 147 just big enough for our 21' TT

Christmas Week

We stayed there for Christmas. Lots of people really decorated it up. Neat fact is that there is a paved trail for bikes and golf carts to go to the crosswalk. Across kings hwy is a grocery store huge flea market Chinese restaurant and most importantly a liquor store. They do have some sites with sewer. Very nice state park. Going again in a couple of months.

Overpriced

Granted it has Beach to walk on the sand but for about 60 per night end of October when Myrtle Beach is a “ghost town” and lots of restaurants are closed as well as most attractions. Nothing else to do but walk on the beach, nothing. This time of the year rates should be reduced by at least fifty percent considering they show about 40 percent occupancy and they would be bringing more revenue. One positive is that the Park remains open till 10pm it is too bad that no matter what time of the day or night the town has shut down due to lack of tourism and there is nothing to do

Beautiful!

This was a lovely place to stay. Most sites are back in, but we got a pull-thru. I think there are about 5. Lots of trees, and you can walk down a little path to get to the beach. There are lots of seafood restaurants, and pancake houses, as well as some well-known places to eat. They also have an abundance of putt-putt golf courses available. There are many hotels to stay in as well. Right next to our site was a nature center. It was closed when we got here, but we sat on the bench outside in their garden just enjoying the many varieties of birds at the bird feeders, and numerous squirrels under them enjoying the discards. The temp was about 66. I wish we could have stayed longer. Two things people said they had issues with are no longer issues: They give you a pass you show at the gate to get back in if you go out to eat, or something. The second thing is they give you a code to get back in the gate if you come back after 10. No problems!

Snowbirding

Great place to winter camp. Got the snowbird special and paid half price for staying 30 days. Came out to less than $20 a night for full hookups. Got out of New York cold. Nice level sites. Minutes to beach. Close to shops and restaurants without the hustle and bustle. Also was able to book a horseback riding trip on the beach. Would come again.

An Oasis In Myrtle Beach

An awesome mile of unspoiled beach! The Park includes a fishing pier, hiking trails and picnic areas. Campsites have space between them which is a nice change from the other RV parks in MB.

2018 August Trip

To begin with campsites are roomy well maintained the beach is just a short ride beautiful boardwalks, landscaping, atmosphere, bathhouses are nice the state of SC has spent a lot of dollars on there state parks prime example is the one . Only one downside if you leave during the day it's hard to get back in the campground.This is our first trip here but will not be our last.The occasional airplane wasn't that big of a deal.We really enjoyed our time here.

July 2018 Visit

Satisfied with our site and experience. Gave 4 stars because some sites would be absolutely horrible. Circles 5&6 are best for privacy and space. The other circles people are on top of each other. Bathrooms are clean and beach access is a short walk. Camp store has everything you might have forgotten which is convenient. The beach isn’t that crowded but arrival between 2-4pm expect to wait in a 45 minute line to get in. There is public access and shelters that can be rented that contribute to the long entry lines. Overall we recommend because of the easy access to the beach.

Always Wanted To See Myrtle Beach

Very close to the Boardwalk and the beach is within walking distance. But very expensive, $53+ for 30 amp eclectic and water. More for 50 amp. Dump station close. But a very popular area, people everywhere. The employees there were very friendly. Parking by the Boardwalk was $7 per hour. A nice policeman did direct us to the pay station almost immediately after parking. Later found a restaurant to eat at and city parking there was 25 cents for 8 minuets. The area around the Boardwalk and the State Park is very expensive. Too commercialized.

Bicycle Tourist

Very noisy. Right next to an airport. The park attendants were very friendly though. And in spite of being very close to the site next to you. It was pretty. Wouldn't recommend it for tent camping.

One Of The Best State Parks

We have been stopping there 4 times every year for the last 10 years on our bi annual trips down South. Quiet park, direct access to beach, access to Myrtle Beach bike path system. Food Lions within walking distance for groceries. The place suffers from every hurricane but they keep repairing and improving. Reservation highly recommended during high season.

Great Staff, Short Walk To The Beach

1st time for us & we spent the weekend there, end of February &we will return as often as possible. Rangers are very hands on, helpful, great people overall. We arrived a little after 8pm(took us longer to get there than planned) & by 7:30, the ranger called my cell to make sure we were still arriving so they could make sure they came back after closing gate to let us in & guide if needed. That took a huge stress off of us with arriving late & having no idea where our site was. We were on site#73.The sites are tight w/narrow winding roads but we managed our 36' in the dark, so not too bad. Showers were clean and so many thru park that we were always close to one. Bathroom section however...toilets...were gross. Heard many complaining to each other in those 3 days &never saw anyone clean them. Friendly campsite & pleasant to walk around, to beach, or hang out on site...day or night w/our kids. [email protected] are abundant, we had our sound machine going all night and it helped a lot.

Amazing Spot!

I originally stayed at Pirateland RV camp but the campsite was so packed, we were all packed in like sardines, to get away from it I decided to drive to the state park it was a $5 entry fee for each person and I stayed there for the majority of the day the park opens at 6 a.m. and closes at 10 p.m. So I just stayed there all day and went back to the RV park just to sleep and dump and refresh. You can park your vehicle right beside the beach just be careful because if you go far to the Southside which is closer to the RV Park do not leave your valuables out because someone's vehicle was broken into, use common sense and hide everything valuable in your vehicle. The internet near the beach not in the park is not that strong you will probably get 3Mbps down and 1Mbps up, it seems as though when it's daytime the network is really slow and then when it's after hours it picks up. Using the internet at the park it was not working you would have to use the cellular network and use your data.

Close To Beach

Really great spot to be close to the beach and close enough to town. Spots are large and fairly level. It is located south of the airport so you will hear planes rumbling overhead every few hours or so but they aren't super annoying or anything. You can book by calling the park directly instead of using reserve America and having to pay their extra fee. Lots of big rv's here. Sites have some trees to give a little privacy. Great camp store located on the property for incidentals.

Beautiful Park

Beautiful beach, beautiful park. Enjoyed the visit even though our RV's sink and shower were leaking. Had to use the park bathroom - good condition would prefer great. Parked in loop 1 space 5. Leveled area, short walk to beach, camp store, and restrooms. Would come back again April or May before summer crowds. Stayed in mid May park fairly crowded already.

Beach Fun

One of my favorites! My family returns here yearly. Sure all campgrounds are basically the same now thanks to the federal government. Well kept by the staff and a great location for a vacation. It's becoming popular so stays a bit crowded for a quiet get away anymore. Advanced reservation is highly recommended anymore. Family oriented without the distractions of arcades and other stuff like that. When I want that kind of entertainment I take a short drive to the boardwalk. A variety of attractions within an easy drive.

Great Location

Typical state park CAMPING, but what a wonderful location. Rained out for 3 of our 8 days, and some sites become a foot deep + flooded. Circle 6 has great sites, but is SWAMP HELL if it rains. Circle 5 is also quite lovely. We stayed on 2, friends and I on site 52/and 54. 52 was sucky with soft sand RAISED, so even with chocks and xchoks it became "unstable" and shifty. Even for our small 21 ft micro lite. Site 54 was a great site for their 30 ft RV. Lots of bathhouses, recently renovated, BUT needs to be cleaned more often. Would be perfect if so. There is no pool, as stated in the description. We would DEFINITELY return, choosing this over the highly populated Pirate Land, Lakewood, Ocean Lakes, etc nearby. Lovely park with plenty to do.

    Myrtle Beach State Park

    Spend a day at the Myrtle Beach State Park. The Myrtle Beach State Park is a large shaded place to enjoy the beach. It offers a great expanse of ocean front beaches and a pier for fishing. If you are there early in the morning or late into the afternoon take a walk to the end of the pier where you can usually get a look at a shark or at dolphins playing.

    Grill out in the picnic areas and just get away from it all for a while. It is a place for swimming, seashell gathering or just napping in the sun. When you need a break from the sun walk under the giant shade trees or check out the nature activities for children in their nature center. There are hiking paths through this beautiful and less touched area of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina's shoreline.

    The Myrtle Beach State Park offers camping facilities. There is a small convenience store in the park for snacks, ice cream and sodas. The pier also has a tackle shop, ice cream, gifts and souvenirs. There are public restrooms available at the park.

    (We also visited Myrtle Beach State Park in June 2019. To read more about that trip, click here.)

    In today’s age of social media, we’re constantly barraged with “perfect” images. The flood of curated and filtered content can make us believe our lives need to be Instagram-worthy to be worthwhile.

    So, as I reflected on our recent trip to Myrtle Beach State Park, I fixated on the foreboding forecast that delayed our arrival, the less than ideal weather, and the lack of sleep caused by our testy toddler. It wasn’t until we’d been home for a few days that the fog of unmet expectations lifted, and I began to see that our weekend was actually perfectly imperfect.

    The forecast got worse and worse in the days leading up to our departure. We don’t mind rain, but riding out high winds and possible tornados in a tin can is another story all together. After being racked with indecision for several days, we finally decided it would be best to wait until Friday morning to head over to the campground. Our decision was ultimately fueled by the thought of having to shelter in a bathhouse with two kids during a pandemic. The risk wasn’t worth the reward in my book.

    But, then, conditions changed and the storm shifted to the east. After carefully watching the radar, we accepted that South Carolina had dodged a bullet, which allowed us to head over Thursday night instead of waiting until morning. Hooking-up was easy since we’d already packed everything earlier in the day. Traffic was lighter than usual too, since we were leaving later in the day and many people were waiting out the weather indoors.

    We arrived at our site, and made quick work of setting up before settling in for the night. We stayed on site 295, which was on the more spacious back loop. The site was easy to navigate into, even in the dark, and had a large outdoor living area. It was also full hook-up, which is always a nice find at a state park.

    We woke to unseasonably cool temperatures and overcast skies, but thankfully the rain held off. We decided to bundle up and head to Murrell’s Inlet to explore Brookgreen Gardens with my Dad and his girlfriend Diane, who were visiting from Indiana. Brookgreen is located almost across the street from Huntington Beach State Park (which you can also visit for free, if you’re staying at MBSP). We spent several hours exploring Brookgreen’s beautiful sculpture gardens before the kiddos hit the wall. We’ll definitely visit again to see the rest of the grounds, which include a section on local history, a small zoo featuring local animals, and even an educational boat tour. (Note: Your ticket, which we found to be very reasonably priced, is actually good for seven days.)

    When we got back to the campground, we decided to embrace the weather. Steven built a roaring campfire and whipped up a delicious, five-bean venison chili. I also made a pan of cornbread in our camper oven, without burning it! In retrospect, it was nice to be able to enjoy a few more days around the campfire since the oppressive heat of summer in the South will soon be upon us.

    Saturday was chilly too, but the sun finally peaked through the clouds, which lifted our moods considerably. Since Dad and Diane were nearing the end of their trip, we spent the day soaking up the park. We visited the Nature Center, took a walk on the beach, and watched seagulls land on the pier. Everett was captivated by the challenge of completing the park’s scavenger hunts to earn a patch from the Nature Center, and Jase insisted on trying every slide on the playground.

    For dinner, Dad visited a market and stocked up on local seafood, which we boiled over the fire. The result was delicious! My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

    Our trip may have been marred by some less than ideal circumstances, but we enjoyed good fellowship, great food, and beautiful sights. Real life is messy, and sometimes it takes the storms to truly appreciate the sun. Now we’re counting down the days until our next perfectly imperfect weekend.
