"WI-FI! We now have complimentary wi-fi in the campground! Located in the heart of the Grand Strand, Myrtle Beach State Park is one of the most popular public beaches along South Carolina's coast. The park includes a campground, cabins, nearly a mile of beach, picnic areas, a fishing pier and a nature center. This park is a "DiscoverCarolina Site", which provides curriculum-based science education programs for South Carolina school children. 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!"
