This place has all the amenities one could ask for in a beautiful setting by the beach. Lots of different campers, has a store, trails to walk or take your golf cart, steps away from the beach, clean bathhouses, and a pier ($5 a person) with another store that sells bait, novelties, etc. What else can one ask for unless you are looking for seclusion? Just go! Note: all of the Myrtle Beach attractions are a short 5-15 min drive away. And remember, no tents on the beach and dogs on the beach during limited hours only.
Level sites with full hook-ups, some paved. Staff are polite and respectful. On-site security, potable water refill stations. Sites are reasonably spaced and the campground is next to the beach. Small store, ice cream parlor, and pizza restaurant that will deliver to your site. Events go on here often, like concerts, Halloween trick-or-treat, Christmas celebrations, Thanksgiving meals, etc. Quiet hours are perfect and enforced. Cannot beat the price on rv storage which is by the quarter, not monthly. Bathhouses are always clean. Have stayed there many times and love it. They even have a rv garage if you need work done.
When our children were young, back in the early 90s, we camped here & loved all it had to offer. We especially liked the church services & bible studies. Now 25 yrs later, we are retired & came back this week on a last minute trip. Still the same great place but bigger. I can imagine it would be quite busy in the summer but this week was perfect for us retired folks. Enjoyed the beach & the indoor pool & hot tub. Visited the coffee shop for some good coffee & biscuits & gravy. Would love to bring the grandkids back.
Ocean Lakes has it all. Great place for families and couple's alike. My wife and I are DINKS but we still have a great time here. Ample spaces. 30/50 amp, great sewer hookups, cable and a tiered WiFi plan. The staff are diligent in keeping it clean here and security is always on the patrol. Will definitely be back.
Lakewood is my favorite place to camp. It is a nice family oriented campground with 1300 campsites. Amenities include full hookup with cable and free WiFi. The campground has 2 swimming pools (indoor and outdoor) and a water park, two ice cream parlors, coffee house, bike rentals, miniature golf for no additional cost. They also have golf cart available for rent. The closest grocery is conveniently located just across the highway via a stop light. The campground offers ocean front sites and shaded sites.
One big campground with a lot of amenities. Nice people. Good size sites with concret pads and patio that accommodate larger rigs but the roads between the sites can be tight. Kid and pet friendly. Wish it had a dog park. Very large camp store, large laundry facility and water park. Very fairly price considering the he amenities. We’ll be back.
There are only 6 tent sites at this RV friendly park. We stayed in site 4 and had a cut through to the beach. Site 2 also could access the shortcut, but other sites had a slightly farther walk. Going before the bugs come out is a must. Potable water on site and a short walk to bath houses. Beach is absolutely breathtaking and not crowded.
We also went on a night hike to the beach and saw so many stars!
No long hiking trails to speak of, but a few short walks through forest and an interpretive trail are available.
Tent sites are close together. There is little visual or auditory privacy.
Raccoons are abundant and the park has provided lockers for all food. We didn’t have any problems, but neighbors who didn’t store food properly did.
Camp site is situated on a pad that I assume is set up that way for flooding, but it made the campsite feel cramped, even though there were 2-4 feet of cleared space around the raised pad before the tree line.
Pros: the facilities at this campground are nice, and it has free hot showers. There is some privacy between sites, and the camp store is convenient. There is also a short walk or drive to the beach itself, which is a nice beach.
Cons: this campground is right near the airport, so you will hear airplanes all day (and most of the night). Because of that, I wouldn't stay here again unless I was passing through.
It’s great how they pick up the trash.
What I didn’t like,
ANYWAY THEY CAN MAKE MONEY OFF THEY WILL, including YOUR VISITORS, $3per day time, if they wanna stay $5.
Mini golf costs.
One load of laundry will cost you $2, dryer $.25 for 6 minutes.
If you need to get a taxi, forget about it NO ONE is allowed on grounds without a pass.
Excessive barking of your puppy means your dog might bark for three minutes at the time. Leaving your dog in a fenced in area, while you have to use the facilities for number one( so what? About 2 minutes) is considered leaving your animal unsupervised.
Lawn WILL BE MOWED ON SUNDAYS, NO(!!!!!!!!) exceptions.
Pool is great, so is the lazy river.
Besides that the ground is old, it’s clean. Access to the Atlantic is great.
Mail will not be delivered, you have to sieve through your initials entire mail.
Quiet hours are enforced UNLESS someone starts packing up at 5.00 AM which will set your dog off and no matter that it is inside your trailer, it’s a reason to threaten you with eviction.
Best you get rid of the dog before you enter Pirateland.
Kids friendly. Youngsters seem to have fun at the splash pool. Playground seems to be deserted all the time.
Staff, cleaning and grounds keeping, is very friendly, while office won’t let you finish your sentences after paying up, nor are they willing to answer questions why breaking down a camp next to you at 5 AM loudly is okay.
Don’t attach Republican bumper stickers to your car, they’ll fall of the car at night.
The internet sucks, cable has moments when overloaded, but cell is great, so one may use personal hot spot as compensation.
Trailers also arrive at 21.00. No one can get setting up done in an hour until quiet time starts, but remember dogs aren’t allowed to bark if they hear ruckus outside.
If you ask me about my feelings, I felt like a prisoner, not being able to sleep in Monday’s, because I had to drive hubby to airport at 4 AM, due to his business trips and cabs can’t puck him up, I’m confined to the RV due to my dog barking, which had to be stopped even in your own trailer immediately.and yes, we were threatened with eviction.
We stayed here for a Martial Arts training weekend on the beach. The camping area has access to the beach and is maintained by the state park rangers. The campgrounds have garbage disposal, bathrooms and showers. The facilities were nice and you could reserve spots with electricity and water. Most all of the camping spots were sand based and of different sizes and shapes as the camping is fit into a horseshoe shaped area. It was also Bike week so there was a lot of people using the campgrounds but it did not seem loud or overwhelmed. There is a camp store and everyone is very friendly. The only facility issue we ran into was a shower head that didnt have a lot of pressure but from others in our group, this seemed to be the only one. They had RVs, tent sites and cabins.
This campground is located directly adjacent to the Intercoastal Waterway, and there is a boat ramp located nearby but there is no access to go swimming here. There are lots of oyster beds lining the rocks that are serving as a perimeter to the waterway, so scrambling through can be hazardous if you go down there. The tent campsites have a good breeze, but once you get back into the trees the mosquitoes can be very bad.
This campground is like a small city next to the beach. Spaces are large enough for camper and vehicle. The park is dog friendly with lots of activities for families, including a water park for no additional charge. We had our three Labs with us and had plenty of places to walk. Daily trash pick up is nice to have. Would definitely go back and take our granddaughters with us.
We had a great week at Buck Hall! The campground isn't very large so I definitely recommend making a reservation. During shrimp baiting season (60 days starting the Friday nearest September 15) the campground is completely booked. Plan accordingly! There is really nice boat landing and fishing/crabbing pier in the campground. We had a blast kayaking around and had some awesome dolphin encounters. The historic town of McClellanville is super cute and I definitely recommend a seafood dinner at TW Graham's! Their key lime pie is amazing as well! The nearby Sewee Visitor Center has red wolves and is free to visit. They also have RV parking! We enjoyed this, but if you have kids I think it would be a must do! You can call ahead and find out when they will be feeding the wolves. The crabbing is great at the campground and we had a delicious crab boil as a result! The only reason I am not giving this campground 5 stars is that the bathrooms were pretty gross. They were working on them while we were there so maybe there is a brighter future for these run down bath houses. Our hotspots worked great here too!
