We were staying at Myrtle Beach State Park. But noticed alot more air traffic noise. Went to Huntington State Park for day much, much quieter. Also dog friendly on South end.

Huntington Beach State Park obviously has the beautiful sprawling beaches. There are also hiking trails and lots of low country wild life to see. There are very nice camp grounds, a small store, and rest rooms near the beach accesses.

The admission cost is worth it. Go early and secure a parking space closer to the beach area, especially if you have a bunch of stuff to carry. Walking trails, clean bathrooms, picnic areas and two beach areas: one without lifeguard but less crowded and...More
