I usually go to Myrtle Beach every Summer for a week or so. This year I was thinking about bringing along a tent and maybe trying to stay a night or two on the beach. I understand that they have the state park campground and pirate land, but I would like to set up my tent in a less populated portion of the beach above high tide (free). The problem I have is that I think it is illegal. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried this on a semi populated beach and gotten away with it, and some tips you can give on the subject.
