We loved the Beautiful and clean beach as we searched for shells early in the morning. Naturalist was nice and showed the girls some animals. The nature center had burned down. I didn't know this before we visited. It should be on the web page,...More

Love visiting to see the birds and alligators, hike in the wooded areas and definitely the beach which is far less crowed than Myrtle Beach itself.

The beach area is wide and not too crowded. The campground spaces are wide. There is a lot of space between you and other campers compared to a lot of campgrounds. Bathhouses are fairly clean. The downside was a lot of gnats! We would get...More

Loved this place! Have been to Myrtle Beach many times and never knew about this gem until this trip and it was amazing. Very beautiful and a lot quieter than Myrtle Beach. Highly recommend it to anybody!

If you reserved the site, then it should be yours. I have seen tents blended in with RV sites multiple times in our travels there. I don't see it should be a problem. If you are concerned, you could call them, but... More
