My wife and I came to Myrtle Beach to get in some relaxation and do some fishing from the piers in the area. The Myrtle Beach State Park pier was the second to visit on our trip. It was shorter that the first pier we visited the day before but it has a really nice covered area at the end so you could escape the sun if you wanted to but still only be steps away from your fishing rod. Also, the baitfish was schooling at the end of the pier and the sharks were putting on a show all day. If you did catch something of size you had better get it out of the water quick or the sharks would snatch it away. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because I thought is was a little pricey to visit. First you pay $8/per adult at the front gate to enter the park and then you pay $8/per adult to fish on the pier. So $32 seemed a little overpriced compared to the other piers we fished while we were there and thankfully it was it was just two of us. It can get expensive for a family of 3 or more.

It was kind of disappointing because this was probably the only day of the year that the concession stand was closed for inventory! Bummer : (
First time to Myrtle Beach really enjoyed the ocean waves, and talking with the fishermen on the pier. Learned a whole lot about reeling in the fish from the elder-statesmen of fishing.
It was also a place to learn about the circle of life. In the matter of seconds I went from wanting to sing "Baby Shark" to
the DA-DUM,DA-DUM from the theme song from "Jaws"! Kind of scary to see. Reminds you that there are wild things out there that you need to watch out for. It is their habitat that you are visiting.

This lovely quiet state park is well worth a visit. A short drive south of Myrle Beach this quiet oasis offered walks by the beach, trails through marine forests a pier with fishing and a small gift shop. Really was worth gpoing although entry prices for a state park were steep at $8 each for seniosrs.

The campground sites are very close together. The showers were very dirty with no hot water. At least the stall I used anyway. Personal hygiene products left on the floor of the shower. This speaks more to the person that made the mess as to park personnel who can’t be everywhere! The beach is narrow and quickly got crowded on this Monday morning. Not everyone followed the no alcohol rule. No tents or canopies on the beach but umbrellas can be brought or you can rent one from beach concessions.
The park also sits at the end of one of MB International Airport runways. Pretty noisy but if you’re an aviation buff, this park could be for you.
There are nice trails in the woods and walkways to the beach with many informational signs about local flora and fauna. Many pluses and the place is better than Indiana!!

Great beach area in this park! The campsites are a little close together for our tastes, but were fine. We paid extra for a septic hookup that was not fully usable in our case because it was installed on the high point for our unlevel campsite. We could drain most of the black tank, but only half of the grey tank due to the elevation of the septic inlet. This is a site specific problem, but it caused me to have to wait in line at the dump station to completely drain our tanks when we left the park.

First, we’re not campers. So, we went just to see the pier and beach. It was all very nice, clean and now we can check it off our list that we were there! Average beach site. Nice rangers and workers. We noticed the end of the pier is being repaired. The planes were flying low to land at a nearby Myrtle Airport. All in all it was good. There’s a very cool giant Adirondack chair on the pier that we did get our photo opportunity on.
I’d definitely recommend going once even if your not a camper. Nice to see.
Here’s a note that nobody advertised but is nice to know. When you pay your $8.00 pp to get into Myrtle Beach State park that allows you to get into Huntington Beach State park too on the same day! (And visa versa-saved us $16.00) Score! So, we went to both in one day. Best kept secret!

We like this state park since it has a lot of picnic tables to choose from, offers a great place to ride a bicycle, and a great place to walk the beach. The only thing we don't like is that only SC seniors get a discount to the park. We own a condo here and visit 5 months out of the year but have to pay the full senior price since we're not "full-time" residents which is odd since we have to pay full year taxes, full year utilities, and full year cable bills. Its just not right.

Took my Parents here on vacation. Staying in this park changed my whole outlook on Myrtle Beach. I have chosen to go elsewhere for the last 20 years because I remember Myrtle being a “party town” However, the state park feels very natural and you don’t even know you are close to a city. We stayed in cabin #2 and couldn’t even see a hotel. Very private & relaxing (minus the planes from the airport). My only challenge was getting my mother (who is on a walker) to the shore. She also had difficulty getting into the handicapped accessible bathtub. The tub is regular height with a seat and bars, but the height is different for a disabled person to step into. The cabin was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for cooking. (You need your own food, cooking spices etc) will definitely return!!

This is one of the better beach experiences we have had, due to the lack of congestion on the beach. The experience is similar to when we had a VRBO right on the water (with a private beach). We will be back this year, simply because we will have space on the beach, and not be stacked up behind rows of other persons.

The campground is fantastic, as long as you are careful with your campground selections. The inner circle is packed together, with the outer row having ample space. Last year, we stayed in the few spots along the main road, near the laundry room. The site was cramped, but felt private enough. This year, we are staying at one of the big sites in the back row and renting a golf cart (which they bring to you).

We have camped a MBSP for over ten years now..at least once a year..sometimes two or three. The park is always clean and the rangers are friendly and knowledgeable. The beaches are clean and for the most part, no more crowded than your average beach. Camping area has its own entrance to the beach, not private but further up from the public. Camping prices have gone up substantially since we first started coming here, but so have improvements to the CG, and costs in general...still a good deal for my dollar.
