Isla Mas Afuera

3 sites · RVs, Tents4 acres · Murrells Inlet, SC
3.5 acres lot, with plenty of buffer from the few neighbors in immediate vicinity, but so close to everything the inlet area has to offer. Beaches, tidal inlet with boat ramps, Waccamaw River with boat ramps, restaurants, shops, bars, State Parks, nature preserves, fun attractions and much, much more, all just moments away. I live here in a double wide by myself, two outdoor cats. Deer, fox, hawks and the like are common visitors. This is brand new to me, lots of improvements to be made in future to make a guests stay even better, so for right now it’s bare bones. Can accommodate tents or certain campers. No pump out, no electricity or running water for “sites” yet, if ever, but running water is here and available for free. Additions to come very soon: outdoor shower, available compost toilet available for rent while here, fresh herbs, vegetables, fresh local eggs, firewood, and covered gathering/ cooking area, and much more, I’m really excited. Open to idea’s and options. No fireworks/ gunfire allowed at anytime, no “parties”, but campfires, games, fun always welcome. I’d enjoy meeting guests apon arrival, I do have medical conditions that may prohibit it at times though.

The Fern Getaway

4 sites · Lodging, Tents7 acres · SC
This is a place to get away and enjoy nature but you aren't too far from a local grocery store, a few restaurants and a local park. If you are here for the beach, the closest beach and also our favorite is Cherry Grove Beach, only a 30 minute drive. There are a few kayak rental companies we can connect you to if you'd like and we know all the local spots for adventure, food and shopping. Pick a hammock and relax listening to the birds, we also have an outdoor kitchen to prepare food and community firepits to gather around. We want this to be a relaxing getaway, to connect with yourself, others and nature.

The best camping near Myrtle Beach State Park guide

Overview

About

With its sandy shores, fishing pier, and fringe of forest, Myrtle Beach State Park is a highlight of South Carolina’s Grand Strand coastline. Hit the mile-long beach to swim, sunbathe, and surf fish, or cast your line from the pier and fish for king mackerel, trout, and flounder. Away from the coast, the scenic nature trails are open to hikers, bike riders, and equestrians, and Myrtle Beach Campground is just a short stroll from the beach. Ample space exists for RVs and tents, with a mix of electric and full hook-up sites.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. You can reserve one of 336 campsites and six cabins via the South Carolina State Parks website. Online reservations must be made a minimum of one day in advance for camping or three days for cabins. 
  2. Campsite reservations open 13 months in advance. A minimum two-night stay is required for all campsites, while cabins are only bookable by the week.  
  3. The campground can fill up, especially on summer and holiday weekends. Book a minimum of three months in advance to avoid disappointment, especially if you have a specific site in mind.

When to go

Crowds flock to Myrtle Beach in summer, and the best time for swimming is from May through mid-September. Parking and picnic spots fill quickly on summer and holiday weekends, when wait times can be up to 45 minutes between 10am to 2pm. Camping is possible year-round, but the overflow site is only open from Easter through Labor Day. 

Know before you go

  • Myrtle Beach State Park is in Myrtle Beach, 90 miles northeast of Charleston or about a 2-hour drive. 
  • There is a per-person admission fee to visit the park, and tickets can also be used for the same-day entrance to nearby Huntington Beach State Park. Pier fishing and camping reservation fees also apply. 
  • Facilities include an activity center and nature center, a gift shop, picnic shelters, restrooms, and playgrounds. Free wifi can be found at the campground and ranger station.
  • Lifeguards patrol the north side of the beach from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Umbrellas and beach chair rentals are available from the lifeguard station. 
  • Accessible campsites, restrooms, and picnic areas are available. A beach wheelchair can be rented on a first-come, first-served basis from the gift shop.
