We camped at the Myrtle Beach KOA during this trip. It was a few blocks from the beach, but the beach there was a bit lacking for us (no public washrooms, no lifeguards). We decided to pay the small entrance fee and spend our beach day at this state park. We arrived before 10am, and had no trouble finding a nice spot. In fact, we rented an umbrella and two chairs from the lifeguards and it was definitely worth it! The cost was $30, but just to have a place out of the sun was more than worth it. The beach was clean, had plenty of showers and bathrooms, and several lifeguards. The lifeguards were constantly walking around and even cleared the beach (near the fishing pier) at one point because of a shark siting.

This beach also had a nice concession stand where we got some ice cream and few small souvenirs. The fishing pier was very busy with fisherman. We also saw someone who had gotten stung by a jellyfish, but we never saw any. There are plenty of signs posted, so make sure you take note of them.

We had a group that wanted to surf fish, which is permitted or you can pier fish for an additional $5 person and a group of children. Too busy to surf fish when we were there at 8 am but fantastic for the kids. Very clean sand and water and not far from the parking lot.

Our visit was in Late June, and we went the park to see the beautiful beaches, find seashells, and explore all the areas that are posted on the pics on here....well, that didn't happen for us! We arrived around 10am on a Sunday, and before noon the beach was packed! So we left to have lunch & all the picnic areas were packed too, we ended up eating our picnic on a table someone had claimed, but their party hadn't arrived yet...not very relaxing! Not only that, but our resort was oceanfront, so we could have stayed there and saved our per person entry fee into the park to just fight more crowds. We were disappointed, but maybe it's nicer at different times of the year - I don't know, that's our only experience.

What a gem! We ended up staying almost five hours with seven kids. The kids had a ball playing in the waves, making a jellyfish pool (little ones) and seeing sandcrabs up close. The beach was clean and it was a major plus to have parking close. If you forgot something in the car, it wasn't a major deal to go get it. There are good enough bathroom facilities. Not super, but I know the attendant definitely comes by at certain times, so they hold up (and are certainly nice to have). There is a pier (with fabulous Bluebell ice cream), playground, nature center and hike. Definitely worth the price to get in ....
