Myrtle Beach State Park#4 in Best Things To Do in Myrtle Beach
South of the busy Myrtle Beach sands you can explore the maritime forest and rent a campsite for the night at Myrtle Beach State Park. Activities include nature trails, surf fishing and equestrian facilities, as well as access to a clean beach that's usually less crowded than the city's main shoreline.
The park covers 312 acres of land by the southern end of the city and offers fishing piers, picnic tables and plenty of campgrounds with RV compatibilities. A nature center is on hand if you want to learn about the turtles, birds and other South Carolina wildlife that call the park home. Recent visitors said the pier is a prime spot for peaceful sea fishing.
The park is open year-round from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., and closes at 8 p.m. from December to February. Admission costs $5 for adults, with discounts for seniors and children ages 6 to 15. Children younger than 5 can enter for free. Prices for campsite rentals vary depending on the amenities offered. The price for sites equipped with electricity and water cost between $21 and $42; full hookup sites (with sewer capability) range from $31 to $52. Some of the activities at the park do cost extra.
