Dates Aug 8 thru Aug 15, 2015 Site: 118 Rating, pretty darn good -we will go back We completed the pre-registration prior to our arrival, so the check-in was fast and efficient. Our site was in the back section in the woods, recommend these sites if you prefer seclusion. The campground was full, but was quiet the entire week. There is no alcohol allowed in the park or on the beach. The bathhouses were clean but small, only two showers in the Women's side (no guys with us, so cannot comment on the mens side.) there are three bathhouses located in the campground. Raccoons were around so very important to keep your site clean and trash taken to the dumpster frequently. We had a table turned over in the middle of the night by one of the rascals looking around even though all our food was in the car and we had no trash in our site..... also saw one searching through the bed of a pickup. We had an ant problem, barrier spray worked well for them but had to treat the stabilizers, power cord, clothes line, tires and hitch. Had to make sure nothing leaned on the camper (they quickly made a trail up a beach chair leaning on the hitch). There are two beach access walkways from the campground, so could walk to the beach from our site. The beach was not crowded around the campground access point, the beach area near the day use parking lot was a bit more crowded. The water was warm and not rough. Dogs are allowed on certain sections of the beach, they must remain on leash. The park offers many activities and gives you a schedule for the week. We were busy all week and did not get to everything that was offered. We did the tour of the Huntington house, alligator tour, the nature center feeding frenzy, and the ghost tour. We biked around as well, there is a paved bike trail going into Murrell's inlet. If you are the artist type, Brookgreen Gardens is well worth a visit, the huge collection of statues through the gardens are very nice. The small zoo is also there featuring several exhibits of native species. The entry fee is good for seven days, so you can go back throughout the week as often as you like. There are alot of restaurants close by and several grocery stores within 3 miles of the park, so easy to pick up anything forgotten. The downside for us was it took 12 hours for us to get there from Baltimore and was not any better getting home. Have to find a better way to get down there.
