Myrtle Beach State Park cabins provide the perfect springboard for exploring this serene forestland. Stick close to the coast or find quiet trails that are ideal for younger kids and those just looking to relax in beautiful surroundings.
This is a superb trail for beginner hikers who love nature but need to take things a little easier. The trail is under a mile long and you can choose to extend your hike or head back to the activity center.
This leads on from the Yaupon Trail and so is excellent if you would like to extend your walk. It carries on for another half mile. Alternatively, you can join it directly from the beach or the activity center and then see more of these pretty woodlands.
Simply stick to the beach and you can hunt for shells and even sharks' teeth along the Atlantic coast. Flanked by the ocean on one side and the woods on the other, this trail offers a peaceful respite from the world.
Beyond walking and seeing the local landscape, there is a lot for families to look forward to at Myrtle Beach State Park. Myrtle Beach State Park cabins and hotels offer a haven of peace and activities that put you in contact with nature.
You don't need a state fishing licence to fish from the pier as you can simply pay a per-day fee. Spanish and king mackerel, flounder and trout are among the fish you can catch here. If you don't have your own rod you can rent one from the gift shop on the pier.
Lifeguards are on duty in the area north of the pier from mid-May to mid-September and in these summer months the conditions for enjoying the water are excellent. You can then take a break and sunbathe on the quiet beach.
This is permitted and even encouraged in the park and visiting the geocaching website will allow you to find treasures in the area. This is a great activity when hiking and is a superb idea for keeping kids entertained while you explore the area together.
