Will be in Charleston SC for a week starting 29 April. DW now wants to go to Myrtle Beach when we leave there. Want a good smaller campground on the Garden City end of town. We are not golfers! Thanks for any help

We love myrtle beach state park. close to everything but once you are in park you feel like you are secluded. huge beach area. sites are spacious, not packed on top of each other. also love huntington beach state park down at murrel's inlet. not too bad of a drive up to myrtle

The KOA in Myrtle beach is nice. The staff is very friendly and helpful but what I liked most about it, is that it feels like a campground in mountains. Nice sites, lots of trees, a lake etc. You would have no idea you are right in the mix of things. It's not on the beach so make note of that - I think it's a block or 2 away from the ocean. Personally I find the CG's on the beach nothing more than crammed parking lots with hookups. To each his own.

We are OLD. Don't need the beach and to lazy to golf + I just had a knee replaced 2 months ago. I think she has us booked into a KOA at Charleston but she mentioned the Northern part of Myrtle. Thanks so far.

There are many CG in Myrtle Beach that our good, but you are packed like sardines. We vacationed there many years ago, and hated it. Check out Emerald Isle, NC. We stopped there on the way down to Myrtle, and are now retired in the area. We love it.

The KOA I mentioned is in North Myrtle.

If being really close to MB is not a priority, and quiet, friendly relaxing atmosphere is, check out Carrollwoods Campground, part of 3 Sisters Winery in Tabor City, NC. North of MB but close enough to visit it. Family owned and operated, with level sites, nice pool, and, last time we visited (year and a half ago) Passport America and Good Sam. We love this place!
Willow Tree RV Resort is also north of MB. More expensive, more bells and whistles. Great bathhouses, large sites (some with hot tubs) and nice lake. Quiet and relaxing as well.

Go and enjoy!!

Sorry, didn't read your whole post. Best CG south of MB is Huntington Beach State Park. Some sewered sites, some tighter than others. Very popular, especially on weekends. Most sites level. Ocean not visible but easily accessible. If you stay there, visit Atalaya (historical home in the park) and Brookgreen Gardens, with boat and walking tours and great artist retreat with sculpture and artwork everywhere.
Litchfield Diner (just south of the CG) has great breakfasts, as does Applewoods. CG is near all kinds of shopping, but out of the way of the craziness of MB.

Now, to be a wet blanket. I doubt if you will get into a campground on this short of notice. Most are filled many months ago. I hope I am wrong on this.

A big Plus for this post. Yes it’s not North Myrtle but IMO much nicer. Close to great seafood in Murrels inlet. Check out Russels for a small capacity, great food place. If you can’t get a spot there, try MB State Park. You’ll be closer to MB and all the shopping you could ever want.

I hope the KOA you booked was the one in Mount Pleasant. A+.
