PARK ADVISORY

The pier will be closed for repairs starting Monday, December 3, 2023, until further notice.  We apologize for the inconvenience.


Please be aware that parking is first-come, first-serve and is LIMITED. Shelter guests are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to arrive outside peak hours (10 a.m. - 2 p.m.) especially on weekends and holidays in the summer. The park is extremely busy during this time and may reach normal capacities and close for a period of time. Should you forget something, you may want to check our retail stores before leaving the park, as the wait to re-enter could be extensive, and you could be turned away if the park is at capacity.

This is a county ordinance that is effective on all public beaches in Horry County.
