We will be traveling down to Myrtle Beach State Park in December this year.  We have never camped at this park and haven't been through it in many years.  Is anyone else familiar with it?  There is a wonderful pier located there.  We are hoping to hit some of the Christmas shops in the area and also get some gift shopping done while we are there.  Would love to hear of any experiences there.
Thanks so much!!

We lived there for 19 years, moving away in 2011. Yes, the State park is fantastic. Definitely dine to the south at the fantastic seafood restaurants along the marsh walk in Murrells Inlet. Another great place to visit is Brookgreen Gardens also in Murrells Inlet. There is a nice ocean front boardwalk in downtown Myrtle Beach. Shopping is great at Broadway at the Beach. If you like ethnic cuisine, our favorite restaurant in the whole world is called Redi-Et Ethiopian Restaurant. We rate if 10 stars on a scale of 1 to 5.

Yes, we are local to the Myrtle Beach area.  Our first trip in February in our 177SE was to one of the great travel trailer camping destinations along the southern part of the Strand. It was fun camping in the dead of winter right next to the ocean, really--once you found a place to sit in the sun out of the wind!  In December, you will still have warm days to enjoy and the sites will be less crowded.  Myrtle Beach remains a great family destination and for me and my husband (semi-retired), it is like being back in high school.  So many things to do here!   To my knowledge, there are three Christmas stores you may enjoy.  The first is Christmas Mouse at 2306 S. Kings Highway (Hwy 17 business), Myrtle Beach.  This will be pretty close to your campsite; they have a second location at the Broadway at the Beach shopping area. (While at Broadway, you may want to check out the Ripley's Aquarium--they do a fairly decent Christmas tree display, one for each state, inside as part of your regular admission).  The other store, about an hour ride north, is Callahan's of Calabash, 4.5 star rating, well worth the trip just over the border in North Carolina!  Hwy 17 north to Hwy 179 in Calabash to the second traffic light gets you right there.  Plan on a FEW shopping hours here!  You did not ask, but you may also want to try some treats at Coccadotts Cake Shop, 106 Sayebrook Pkwy.  Again, this will be closer to your campsite, a Cupcake Wars winner! Enjoy your visit to Myrtle Beach, you will not be disappointed!
