Camping Guide to Myrtle Beach

  By  Visit Myrtle Beach
Camping by the ocean

Bringing your family to the beach to enjoy the evenings is part of what Myrtle Beach is about! Make that perfect night under the stars for everyone to enjoy. Walk the beach in the evenings with friends and family and get that inspiring "big sky" feeling of seeing thousands of twinkling stars.

The best way to experience such a wonderful star-filled night is to book the perfect place at one of our oceanfront resorts, beach houses, hotels or motels, small hotels or bring your RV or tent to one of the many full-service "city within a city" RV resorts, or campgrounds.

Here is a great overview of what our area offers in RV parks:

WillowTree is located in Longs, SC on a 36-acre lake, just minutes from Myrtle Beach. RV sites have private lakefront hot tubs, pool area, and fishing. What an experience to witness the starry nights from your hot tub each evening!

Myrtle Beach Travel Park

Apache Family Campground has over 700 sites on the oceanfront, with the famous Apache pier with nightly live music. Get under the stars for all the pier fun!

In Little River, the NMB RV Resort and Dry Dock Marina offers waterfront camping and state-of-the-art dry dock and marina with amenities including swimming pools, waterslide, boat and jet ski rentals.

The Myrtle Beach Travel Park is a half-mile-long RV park, right on the oceanfront, with full-amenity campsites, a grand pool, sports complex, family restaurant, and camp grocery store.

Clustered together are three legendary RV parks with bold views of the stars over the Atlantic Ocean:

On the south end of Myrtle Beach, Pirateland RV Resort has vacation rental homes and hundreds of RV sites to rent. There is an awesome 500-foot Lazy River pool complex designed for family enjoyment. Pirateland also has a camp grocery and a mini-golf complex.

Pirate Land Camping Resort, Myrtle Beach

KOA Camp fire

The Myrtle Beach KOA, located at the south end of Myrtle Beach offers great other amenities, including a climbing wall, jumping pillow, outdoor cinema, an arcade, and a splash pad.

Don't forget to go to the Myrtle Beach Campground Association for a list of other wonderful RV resorts and campgrounds in the Myrtle Beach area! 

At night family movies are great fun in the Myrtle Beach area outdoors, with "Movie under the Stars" programs in North Myrtle Beach's McLean Park, Valor Park at the Market Common in Myrtle Beach, and Martin Field in Surfside Beach.

There are so many ways to enjoy the nightly stars here in the Myrtle Beach area. From "under the stars" entertainment complexes like Barefoot Landing, the BoardwalkBroadway at the Beach, the Market Common, or the Marsh Walk, you'll be awestruck as you take the time to look up for that nighttime canopy of sparkling creation!
