May 2019 update: A portion of the Myrtle Beach State Park pier will close June 1, 2019 for construction due to damage from Hurricane Florence. The closure is expected to last through September 2019. The state park pier store will remain open during construction.
The Myrtle Beach State Park Pier is part of the first state parks to open in South Carolina back in 1936. This beautiful historic woodland state park has oceanfront camping. Built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, Myrtle Beach State Park has over 300 campsites for both RVs and tents with picnic shelters, restrooms, outdoor showers, playgrounds, and a fishing pier. There are even 6 historic cabins for rent.
This is the quietest and most natural pier setting in the Myrtle Beach area as this state park is designed for a low-key relaxation experience in lush maritime surroundings.
Enjoy fishing or crabbing from the pier, or surf fishing for flounder, king mackerel, whiting, trout, spots, Spanish mackerel, drum, and blues. Learn how to identify some of the common fish and crabs caught off of the pier and the regulations associated with certain fish and crabs.
South Carolina requires all individuals fishing from the shore/surf to purchase a saltwater fishing license. Licenses can be purchased from bait stores and major retailers or online through SC Department of Natural Resources. No license is required to fish from the pier.
Fishing rod rentals: Fishing rods can be rented from the pier gift shop for $7.50/day. A refundable $25 deposit is required for each rod rented. Rods must be returned an hour before the pier gift shop closes.
The Myrtle Beach State Park is just south of the Springmaid Pier and the Myrtle Beach Flea Market.
