PETS

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.
