To do a little follow up, we spent last week at Huntington Beach State Park near Murrell's Inlet, SC. This is about 20 miles south of Mrytle Beach.
It is a great place to camp. There is a choice of open, wooded, or combination sites. The sites are graveled, fairly level, are roomy and not on top of other campers, and have a fire-pit and picnic table. There are only a few sites with sewer connections, but all except the tent sites have water and 30 amp service. There are 2 accesses to the beach from the campground, and we could actually hear the waves from our site. The showers are a little outdated, and 1 out of 2 were broken in the men's room on the station that we used....I did not go into the other 2 stations.
There is bike path that extends north up through "Restaurant Row" in the town of Murrell's Inlet. The missus and I biked about 6 miles, ate at Creek Ratz, and then biked the 6 miles back. I did some more mileage south along the path, which I promptly got lost in a residential area when the bike path led into. The path continues on south, but not very far. I got in a total of 27 miles that day.
Bike riding is also possible on the hard-packed beach sand on the high tide area.....I did a couple of miles on that, and it was great riding with the wind......but a chore coming back against the wind.
We also took our canoe out for a 1/2 day trip in the marsh area of Murrell's Inlet. The winter home of the Huntington's is on the Park, and that is a great self guided tour.
Overall, we really liked the campground and surrounding area, and hope to get back there, maybe next year.
Can you believe that I forgot to take pictures of the campground ?? My bad.
