Hello from Murrells Inlet, South Carolina

Hi to all.
I'm new to this forum and I just purchased a Forest River Flagstaff Hard Sided T12RB, but I'm not new to Forest River or camping. My previous camper was a 1990 Flagstaff pop up. I'm soon to be 75 years old and I was looking for something simpler to put up and tear down, which I believe I found in my new camper. If anyone has some hints and tips for me, I would greatly appreciate it, especially for my model camper. Please feel free to share your experiences both with the camper and some friendly campgrounds. (I only camp in State Parks that have water and electric hookups.) I have been camping at Little Pee Dee State Park for about the last 5 years. Nice park, friendly and helpful staff and above all, nice and quiet, especially during the week. Happy camping!
Jim

Welcome to the forum !!!

I stayed at Murrell's Inlet State Park during an early spring trip last year. We had a great stay there, and hope to get back within the next couple of years.

Hi Mtnguy:
Yes, I read your message and I replied but it didn't go through because the thread was old and I didn't click in the box to activate it.
When you bicycled from Huntington Beach State Park up to Creek Ratz, you went right passed my house. I live adjacent to the wooden bridge that crosses the marsh, only on the other side of the road which is Rt. 17. You were on Business 17. How did you like H.B.S.P? I have taken thousands of pictures there as it's a photographers paradise. Did you visit Brookgreen Gardens? Another great place for photo ops. Murrells Inlet is full of seafood restaurants, some good and some not so good, if you like seafood. Things are getting a little pricey here as we are in the middle of a "tourist trap" area. (Myrtle Beach.)
If you're ever headed this way, let me know as I would be more than happy to meet you and your wife in person. And thank you for the welcome message!
Jim

Oops, I misspoke. It was Huntington Beach State Park instead of Murrell's Inlet State Park.

It was 1 of my all time favorite camping trips. I agree that it is a photographer's paradise, especially on the causeway coming into the park.

We did visit Brookgreen Gardens, but not spend near enough time there. It was on travel home day, and I was anxious to get a couple of miles under my belt.

Atalaya was also very interesting, and well worth the tour through that.

The nature museum was great, also.

We used the public boat ramp at Murrell's Inlet to launch our canoe, and had a pleasant afternoon paddling the marsh area there.

The sand on the beach for the most part is had packed between low and high tide marks, and it was great riding my bike on the beach. Sango the wonder dog enjoyed it, also.

I will definitely give you a heads up when we make it down that way again.
