Myrtle Beach State Park
The first state park in South Carolina, Myrtle Beach State Beach is in the heart of Myrtle Beach. It has 312 acres of oceanfront and is one of the last natural areas in this area. Spend just a day or rent a campsite or 2-bedroom cabin and stay for the whole summer. The Nature Center has displays of animals, fish, plants and flowers of the area and an easy-to-hike nature trail which is only 3/4 mile one way. This park also has a store, gift shop, playground, and fishing form the pier or surf. Opens daily at 6 am.
The pier is not for "ladies" or children. Foul language from locals and one guy was catching baby shark and smashing their skulls and throwing them back in. Really rough. Got home and the next day had a flat tire. Think I got it there in the camp ground. Had nightmares about the place and how the fish were treated.
I am shocked that there are so many positive reviews of this place! I guess in comparison to the other beach areas in Myrtle Beach, the state park is nice, but compared to other beaches just an hour or so north or south of Myrtle Beach, it is awful!! The airport's flight path flies directly over the park and disrupts any chance at a relaxing day at the beach! Again, perhaps it is good compared to other areas in Myrtle Beach, but the sand had cigarettes and paper litter almost wherever you looked!
We camped here for 5 nights and have never before met so many unfriendly (at best) and rude (at worst) campers and staff members! Usually campers are a friendly group, but not here! It seems that everyone goes out of their way not to say hello - or even to make eye contact!
Unless you are coming to spend your time and money on attractions and shopping, do yourself a huge favor and head an hour south to Huntington Beach State Park. Absolutely gorgeous beach - no trash, no airplane noise- and friendly people.
Don't go on the 4th of July. We went last year to camp and you had to sit in traffic to enter the park for over an hour. The park was packed and loud with no where to park or picnic. It was terrible.We will never camp or go any where near the park during the 4th of July again.
Unfortunately 3 of the 5 cabins where broke into during our stay in May 2009 windows old due to age off cabin easy assess for break in, our cabin alone they took 2 cameras & cash approximately $700.00 Furniture old, thank goodness we had air mattress to use since sofa bed was worn out, over sized chair took up a lot of room, small appliances and pots & pans need replaced as well.
this is a beutiful place but the 30 amp electric hook up should be putting out anywere from 110 to 127 volts only puts out about 95 to 100 volts and it will destroy your motorhome a/c. I told the ranger about the problem and they didnt really seem to care about it. So we could only have lights at night or air conditioning but not both. Do not stay here in a motorhome or camper go somewhere else
I have been going to this park a few times a year all my life! it is an awesome place to be! I cannot believe some of the negative remarks here about this great park! like being upset over how fish were treated on the pier! is that a joke or what??? well I can not find one bad thing to say about this park except maybe the pier could be a little longer
Just returned from 7 nights at Myrtle Beach State Park and we loved it! A couple minute walk from our campsite to the beach, which was awesome. The beach was very clean. I felt the bath houses were above-par for a state park (at least the ones we've stayed at). Campsites were smaller than we are used to, but we expected that and it was better than we thought. The park staff were very friendly. We had no problems during our stay and will definitely be back!
