The campground here is so well laid out you don't realize how large it is - almost 300 spaces. Pads, for the most part, are very level, well spaced, and all enjoy a great deal of shade. Unusual for a state park, there are some...More

With cooler weather, the campground was almost empty and much quieter than other times of the year. Good fishing at the pier, though the end is closed from hurricane damage.

Location is super right on the water front with a nice long fishing pier. Camp sites and cabins with loads of walking trails. Just a mile away from market commons area of Myrtle Beach and its movies theaters ,bars, restaurants and parks.

Other than the fact that it cost us $10 to enter, it was a beautiful place to visit. The pier wasn't open completely, but there were a lot of people fishing. It provided a great view of the beach and ocean.

Not that I am aware of. Go to the park's website where there is more information on the park's facilities and amenities. However, I did not see any bike rentals.

Myrtle Beach State Park vs Huntington Beach State Park (6 Replies)
Hello- I'm going to MB in late September. I've already planned for Huntington Beach State Park, Brookgreen Gardens and a kayaking trip up near North Myrtle Beach in tupelo swamps. I was an environmental geography major in college, so I naturally like to see unique landscape, flora/fauna, culture, etc. I'm not interested in most of the touristy things like laying in the sun on the beach or tacky souvenir shops. I want to do light hiking and kayaking... maybe fishing. I'd love to see...More

Myrtle Beach State Park has a fishing pier. It is definitely smaller than Huntington Beach State Park, with a less varied environment. BTW, if you don't see any alligators at Huntington Beach State Park, you can head a bit further south to check out Santee Coastal Reserve (that is south of Georgetown). It has more water (canals) than you find at Huntington Beach. We've seen alligators there every time we walk the 7 mile loop which goes out to the inter coastal. Great place to watch wildlife -...More
Staying in Myrtle Beach but would like to take a day trip (5 Replies)
Me, my husband, and two 7 year old children are coming to Myrtle Beach one week from today. We have been here many times but have never adventured out to any other parts the beach. Our hotel is close to the sky wheel. I'm looking for a different area that MAY not be as crowded.. beautiful scenery, good place to spend at least half a day and a really good place for photos. Any suggestions would be so helpful. So far I'm looking at Myrtle beach state park, cherry grove, isle of palm,...More

Trip Report for week in Pawleys Island (2 Replies)
Even though I prefer mountains to the beach, I really enjoyed Pawleys Island. (At least I got to drive through the mountains on the trip.) It is my favorite week long beach trip we have taken. We stayed at a condo in True Blue II. It was a great location for us. We could be at the ocean, grocery stores, shopping,... in a matter of minutes. On 3 of the days, my son and I played golf at area courses while my wife and daughter shopped and spent time on the beach. They discovered and fell in...More

Thanks for taking the time to share an excellent trip report, and glad to hear you enjoyed your visit. Huntington Beach St Pk and Brookgreen Gardens are truly the crown jewels of this area, and I'm always amazed at the number of folks who come to PI but never take the time to visit those places. If you have the time and inclination, I'm sure the restaurants and attractions would appreciate you writing a review. Y'all come back soon, we'll leave a light on. :-)
