|About these ratings|
At Myrtle Beach State Park, you can explore your more adventurous side and rent a campsite for the night. There is plenty of nature and trees, as well as access to a nice and clean beach that tends to be less crowded than the city's main shoreline. The park covers 312 acres of land by the southern end of the city and offers walking trails, picnic tables and fishing piers. A nature center is on hand if you want to learn about the turtles, birds and more that that make their homes in the park.
Prices for campsite rentals depend on the amount of amenities you need. Writers and recent travelers both say for a park, there are plenty of bathrooms and bathing facilities. However, one reviewer on TripAdvisor says, "The bathrooms were a little dirty but definitely not as bad as some I've seen…for such a crowded campground I felt they were kept better than to be expected."
The park is open all year long, but hours are more limited from December through February. There is a small fee per person to enter the park. Discounts are available for children 15 and under and South Carolina senior citizens.
