Traveling safely is not only possible during a pandemic, it’s important—especially when travel takes you to sunny beaches to breathe fresh salt air, feel the sand between your toes, and make connections with family and friends. The Myrtle Beach area offers 60 miles of beautiful beaches (so there’s plenty of room to spread out), and it also offers more than 10,000 camping sites at nine campgrounds and two state parks. When I say “campground” you may picture a few tents pitched near a small grove of trees, but I’m here to tell you—some of the Grand Strand’s mega-RV parks are like towns unto themselves!
Several of our RV parks have oceanfront property, so you can choose campsites right by the beach! If you prefer shade, there are plenty of shady spots too! Most have RV, beach house, and cottage rentals available if you don’t have your own RV, camper or tent. This way you can enjoy the unique campground settings while you keep yourself socially distanced.
If it’s amenities you want, you’ll be amazed to see what our campgrounds offer. Most have their own general stores, restaurants, snack bars, pools, lazy rivers, laundromats, and waterparks. They have wi-fi and most are pet friendly. Some have coffee shops, nature centers, mini golf courses, golf cart rental, basketball courts, lawn games, and regular programming such as bingo, arts and crafts, karaoke and much, much more!
