Camping at Myrtle Beach

The Myrtle Beach State Park campground is large, with 302 sites in the main campground. Despite the size of the campground its location, not far from the beach and under the shade of large pines, makes it a cozy place to stay. The information found here can help answer some of the questions you may have about camping in the park. If you cannot find what you need here you can call the park office at (843) 238-5325.


Myrtle Beach State Park is large, popular and typically quite busy. There are a few campsites that are held out of the reservation system to allow some drive up campers to get a site. This means it is possible you can get a site without a reservation but - especially during the summer and holiday weekends - there is a good chance you will be turned away. Your best strategy is to plan your visit well in advance and make reservations.

the entrance to the myrtle beach campground

Checking into your campsite is taken care of at the camp store. It is located at the entrance to the main campground. This office is open from 8 AM - 9:30 PM, April through September; 8 AM - 8 PM, March, October and November and during limited hours December through February. If you will be arriving late you should call ahead to confirm your reservation and to make arrangements to allow you to get through the locked park gate. The camp store has some basic supplies but they are limited, and there is not much rhyme or reason as to what they do or do not have. You can find snacks, some drinks, ice and other foods. You can also find some limited camping supplies. Fortunately if you forget your favorite camping chair or any other major camp site necessities that the store does not have you just have to head into Myrtle Beach. There are plenty of stores where you can find everything you need.
