If Myrtle Beach is on your itinerary, then camping at the Myrtle Beach State Park is a great place to set up camp. Here in this 300 acre park you can use your camping gear or rent a cabin. And, if you want to get away from all the activity on the Myrtle Beach main strip this park offers ocean and pool swimming, surf fishing, nature trails, picnic areas, and a playground. South of Myrtle Beach you can camp at Huntington Beach State Park as well. Huntington Beach is a personal favorite of this Webmaster.
At Poinsettia State Park in Sumter, you will find 1,000 acres of mountains and swamps, liberally landscaped with Spanish moss, mountain laurel and rhododendrons. You can pitch your tent in the improved or primitive campsites or rent a cabin, then spend your time enjoying the park’s nature center, boat rentals, fishing, hiking the nature trails or dining al fresco in the picnic areas. Local attractions include the Church of the Holy Cross, the 1893 Opera House, the Sumter County Museum, the Sumter Gallery of Art and the Swan Lake Iris Gardens where the Iris Festival is held each May.
If you are soft and enjoy the luxury of a condo consider one of the thousands of condo rentals in South Carolina. Condos line the beaches and are a great way to save money on your next vacation while staying in a more friendly setting.
