Fall is the perfect time to reconnect with the nature around you at a campground or RV park. And if you’re like me – reconnecting with nature is going to the beach. In Myrtle Beach, the summer warmth and sunshine last a little bit longer than other places, making it the perfect place to enjoy some more summer fun before the holidays set in.

Myrtle Beach has its fair share of campground and RV parks, most with direct access to the beach. Here’s our roundup!

Myrtle Beach State Park

The first state park in South Carolina, the Myrtle Beach State Park takes up residence across one mile of coastline in the heart of Myrtle Beach. You will have direct access to the beach, restaurants, and attractions and then escape back to the campground for a quiet, tree covered park.

Carolina Pines RV Resort

Think RV Park mashed with a resort! Carolina Pines has all your favorite amenities with plenty of RV hook-ups. Located off Highway 90 near North Myrtle Beach, Carolina Pines is secluded enough for a relaxing getaway, but close enough to all the action at The Beach.
