I am huge fan of parks of all kinds and wanted to head here for pictures and to enjoy a walk on the beach. I got there late in the afternoon and it was not crowded at all, however, this was due to the unusually cold weather. The place has a small $5 entrance fee which is worth it. When... More

Gorgeous white sandy beaches,nestled in a wooded entrance..this is my favorite piece of heaven in Myrtle Beach..spotless beaches,safe swimming enviroment,picnic grounds, play area for our grandchildren..this state park has it all.The entrance fee is worth the small fee..as you avoid the craziness of public beaches and have great parking with easy access to the beach.

We spent our summer vacation at Myrtle Beach. Our first order of business after our arrival was to get to the water, as we do not live near the ocean. We spent our first day at the state park and it was totally the right choice. Between the bath house, the picnic area, and the playground. We all had a... More

Wonderful place to take your family and animals (in the winter). The park is clean and the beach is beautiful at all times. We have not gone fishing on the pier, but many friends have and found it to be very reasonably priced. Parking was plentiful. The only complaint in the winter is that the entire park is not open...

The only negative for a state park is the cost per person. Even in NY it's by a car load. Parks are meant to be enjoyed by groups and families not to profit from them! Besides that an enjoyable day. We watched the dolphins play near the pier which is better then a sight seeing tour. The neatly groomed trails... More

Bought our travel trailer and wanted to do a maiden voyage with it to learn how it handled on a 5 hour drive. Myrtle Beach State Park was an easy pick. Just a skip from the boardwalk on the South end, it's close to everything. Lots to do in the park for everyone. They have a fishing pier just like... More

Thank you South Carolina for saving this piece of land and beach for a state park. It's so nice to enjoy a non-commercial section of shoreline on the Grand Strand. Huntington Beach S.P. to the south is also a gem. At $5 per person admission, I suggest considering an annual pass if you will be in SC for any length... More

South Carolina should be very proud of their state park just south of the strip at Myrtle Beach. What a beautiful beach and the cleanest campground that we have been to in recent memory. They have equestrian parking and access to the beach. Dogs are allowed on the beach in the winter months. The elevated pier is sturdy and provides... More

Nice park for a short hike or to spend some time on a beach,but wouldn't say it was anything out of the ordinary considering its location

We love to visit this park for excellent fishing and if nothing else to walk around and enjoy the surroundings. The Beach is never crowded and the Pier is always full of fish ;)
