SPECIAL WEATHER NOTICE: We have experienced storm-related issues at several of our state parks. We are constantly assessing the situation due to changing weather conditions and conditions of park roads, grounds and facilities. Please contact the park you plan on visiting directly, for up-to-date information.

A large portion of the fishing pier will be closed from 6 am to noon on Saturday, October 17th for our 9th annual Take a Kid Fishing day.  Pier fishermen will have to fish closer to shore during that time.  Thanks for your understanding and cooperation in helping to give kids an opportunity to fish!  If you would like to join this event, click here.

We will be camping out on the fishing pier during our annual Camping Ex-PIER-ience!  
The entire pier will be closed to the general public from 6:00PM Saturday, October 17th to until 6:00AM Sunday, October 18th.  On Sunday, October 18, a large portion of the pier will remain closed until 7:00AM to accommodate program participants who are spending the night on the pier.  For more information, click here.

Due to heavy visitation on Saturdays and Sundays, expect long lines when entering the park, especially from 11am to 4pm.  We appreciate your patience in advance!

To make sure your visit is as perfect as it can be, please be sure to check the Horry County Beach Ordinances before heading to the park. For example, tents and cabanas are prohibited on the beach. 

WI-FI! We now have complimentary wi-fi in the campground at Myrtle Beach State Park, as well as the pier gift shop and ranger station located near the campground entrance. We hope this helps to enhance your stay!

Along the far-reaching stretch of Grand Strand coastline, Myrtle Beach State Park sits nestled among oceanfront maritime forest. A quiet, and surprisingly green, escape from the otherwise bustling beach, the park provides educational opportunities, a nature trail and some of the best surf fishing South Carolina has to offer as well as stunning ocean views and another great fishing spot on Myrtle Beach pier.

As far as Myrtle Beach campgrounds go, the parks’ is among the most popular, providing guests with Myrtle Beach pier and shoreline access as well as cozy sites tucked away under the towering trees. If the Myrtle Beach campgrounds aren’t for you, overnight guests may also stay in one of six rental cabins, built by the CCC in the 1930s.
