It depends on what you like. If you prefer campgrounds, Huntington Beach State Park in Murrells Inlet is really nice, though you'll likely end up with water and electric only. They do have a pumping station though. They also have fire rings, nature trails, alligators, and easy access to the beach.
OTOH, if you prefer full service parks with pull through sites, North Myrtle Beach Travel Park is hard to beat. They have sites under the trees, sites abutting a small lake (no swimming or fishing) and a bunch of sites "on" the beach. The bath houses aren't very far away from any of the sites and are kept acceptably clean, they have free cable and free wifi (some parks charge for the wifi).

There are lots of things to see, though most of the "shows" such as Legends in Concert or Midieval Times require advance reservations.
The North Myrtle Beach chamber of commerce has a very comprehensive list of all the things to do: Visit North Myrtle Beach - North Myrtle Beach Things To Do - North Myrtle Beach Attractions - North Myrtle Beach Amusement Parks – Events and Attractions

As mentioned, It all depends on what you want. If you want to be on the beach. (what other reason to go) Myrtle Beach Travel Park is very nice, on the North side. Close to Restaurant Row, Barefoot Landing, and about an hour from Wilmington NC. Also has an indoor pool.

IF you want the South. We like Pirateland. Closer to town, and Broadway on the Beach. Also has a indoor pool, as do all the oceanfront parks, except Apache.

In truth, In March, You really can't go wrong with any of the big 4 CG. Ocean Lake, Lakewood, PL, or MBTP. All are on the beach, and have full hookups.

Thing about the state parks. They only have full hookup on a few sites.

We went to Myrtle Beach in March of this year and stayed at the Myrtle Beach KOA. I personally was very happy with the CG...it was very clean and the Snow Birds were very welcoming. It's directly in the center of town and relatively convenient to most of the local attractions. If you want to be directly on the beach this isn't the campground for you. We have two dogs and the less sand the better for us.

FYI...take warm clothes. When we were there last March it wasn't much warmer than being in PA.

We stayed at a few of the campgrounds including the KOA, Lakewood and Ocean Lakes, and we prefer the KOA. We don't like the blowing sand of the campgrounds on the beach, and its great at the KOA as you can walk to many attractions, restaurants etc,

Myrtle Beach is the largest tourist trap I've even encountered. Stayed at Ocean Lakes, couldn't even walk along the streets for all the children driving(?) golf carts. Only way to access the beach was to walk 4 blocks(no place to park), renting golf cart was $50/day.
Next time we'll find an RV park further South, near Pauley's Island.
That is the reason we will not attend next years irv2.com national rally.

That's why I recommended Myrtle Beach Travel Park, limited golf carts to only the year round residents! We go there and never leave the park. Don't have to deal with the tourist trap! If you want a nice place to visit the go to Hunting Island State Park, hard to get in but worth the wait!!!
