The Oldest Campground In South Carolina Has Made Summertime More Magical Since 1955

The oldest campground of record in The Palmetto State is still one of the most fun places to get away for the day – or longer. The earliest mention of the campground at Myrtle Beach State Park is found here, where, in 1955, a Commission report describes the more than 50,000 campers who arrived at the seasonal campground that year.
