Myrtle Beach State Park
Posted: February 07, 2019 by Faith Robertson
Whether you want to enjoy lounging on the beach or a hike through the forest, the Myrtle Beach State Park is a great place to spend the day. The park offers one mile of beautiful beach, a pier to fish from, camping, picnic areas and hiking on several trails. Myrtle Beach State Park is located near the Myrtle Beach airport just off of Rt. 17 business.
The park offers 302 campsites, most with water and electric. Accommodations include tent, RV and large RV sites. There are also 6 cabins that range in size from two bedrooms to four bedrooms. In addition, there are two apartment style accommodations as well.
There are several picnic pavilions available with grills where you can enjoy lunch and catch some shade. The pier has a store as well as a store in the campground that will supply some basic needs.
The southern end of the park is more of a natural habitat and includes a rare maritime forest. There are several trails that wind through the forest and can be accessed from the south end parking lot.
Surf fishing is allowed along the shore with an SC license, but you don't need a license to fish from the pier. Fish in the area this time of year are sea bass, speckled trout, stripers and tarpon.
There is also the addition of a boardwalk running along the shore just beyond the dunes north of the pier.
The park features nature programs, children's activities, a nature center and two playgrounds.
