Myrtle Beach State Park, SC

 myr1

Myrtle Beach SP is a large park located at the south end of Myrtle Beach, SC. There are 293 sites in the main campground, with another 43 smaller sites in an over-flow area. The CG is located in a wooded area set back a few hundred feet from the beach. We used to stop here every year on our way south, but decided we didn't care for the dark woods and now we usually stop at Huntington Beach State Park, a little further south.

Office: 843 238-5325

Site #26 was one of our favorite sites here - it gets a little more sun than most.

Most recent visit: Nov 2008

This picture is representative of camp sites throughout the park. All are shaded and offer electric and water hookups. There are a few sites with sewer connections and there is a dump station.

This is the newest of several bath-houses. It includes a laundry room along with clean reastrooms and hot showers.

Fisher-people enjoy the long fishing pier at the park.

Since the campground is the woods, we usually drive out to the parking lot by the pier to enjoy the sunshine for the day.

Just about across Highway 17 from the state park is the local airport, formerly Myrtle Beach AFB. Thus one sees and hears a lot of aircraft activity. At least they're not directly overhead!

An interesting feature of Myrtle Beach SP is the provision of a staging area for horseback riders. There's a large parking area with a trail that connects to the beach.

Miles of beach are available for walking as well as riding.

There are several nature trails within the park. Along one is a small pond where I found these ducks.
