This is one of the best kept secrets in the south. I love this place and will definitely return to enjoy the tranquility of the park.

Stopped here to check out the castle and the bike path. We visited the gift shop and took a nice walk on the beach. They charge per person, not by car so I guess it could get pricey. We enjoyed our visit. The bike path...More

I think of all the beaches in the Myrtle Beach area, this is the nicest. White sand, large broad beach, good outside showers to rinse off,plenty of picnic tables, nice restrooms and changing areas. The adjacent ruins are also interesting.

We camped for 2 nights at this campground and loved that it was just a few minutes to walk to the beach. It's a very clean campground. While the campground was full and busy, it was very quiet at night. Would stay here again if...More

Which is the best picnic shelter to reserve close to the ocean but not a long walking distance from the parking area? Looking at a small wedding in September and need a location for older guest to sit for a short ceremony in the sand prior to the event.

There are nice covered picnic tables near the boardwalk that leads to the beach from the parking lot. Not a long walk!!
What is the temp like in mid-april? Is it warm enough for the kids to enjoy swimming? Would they burn by the sun at that time of year?

The water was cold my kids got wet but it was too cold to swim. We did get some sun though so yea you can still get a burn.
can you just go there and walk around even though you are not camping?
