Along the far-reaching stretch of Grand Strand coastline, Myrtle Beach State Park sits nestled among oceanfront maritime forest. A quiet, and surprisingly green, escape from the otherwise bustling beach, the park provides educational opportunities, a nature trail and some of the best surf fishing South Carolina
has to offer as well as stunning ocean views and another great fishing spot on Myrtle Beach pier
As far as Myrtle Beach campgrounds
go, the parks’ is among the most popular, providing guests with Myrtle Beach pier and shoreline access as well as cozy sites tucked away under the towering trees. If the Myrtle Beach campgrounds
aren’t for you, overnight guests may also stay in one of six rental cabins, built by the CCC in the 1930s.
