The entire Myrtle Beach State Park fishing pier is currently closed.  It is estimated the closure will last through Fall 2019.  The pier store will remain open during construction.  Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Due to heavy visitation on Saturdays and Sundays, expect long lines when entering the park, especially from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.  We appreciate your patience in advance!

Pets are not allowed in the cabins or the cabin areas. Pets are not allowed on the beaches from 10am until 5pm (7 days a week) May 1 through Labor Day. This is a county ordinance that is effective on all public beaches in Horry County. Pets are allowed in most other outdoor areas year round, provided they are kept under physical restraint or on a leash not longer than six feet.

Bikes are also not allowed on the beach during the same time periods as pets.

Picnic Shelters

There is no better way to enjoy Myrtle Beach State Park, than to rent one of our seven picnic shelters, and get the family together for a day at the beach. Many of our shelters are even ideal for office retreats and other organized group outings. 

Picnic shelter guests also must pay admission per person.  We have a wristband admission option available if you would like to purchase admission in advance for your group.  This must be arranged at least two weeks in advance of your arrival.

  • Picnic Shelter Information: Seven picnic shelters are available for family or other group gatherings. Each shelter may be reserved for $75-200/day. If shelters are not reserved, guests may use on a first-come, first-served basis at no charge.

    Note: Admission is not included in shelter price. Rates listed do not include applicable tax and nonrefundable reservation costs.

    Please be aware that parking is first-come, first-serve and is LIMITED. Shelter guests are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to arrive early on F, Sa and Su, as well as all holidays during the months of May-Sept. The park receives extremely heavy traffic during these times.
