Myrtle Beach


South Carolina

Myrtle Beach State Park

Built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal Program, Myrtle Beach State Park was the first state park to open to the public. Because of this, the maritime forest was declared a Heritage Trust Site.

This popular, 312-acre Park includes a nature center inhabited with snakes, turtles and marine animals, as well as a backyard wildlife habitat featuring a captivating butterfly garden and birdhouses.

Both the Myrtle Beach State Park and Huntington Beach State Park are known to be among the best birdwatching locations on the East Coast. Campsites, cabins, apartments and picnic areas are available.
