This place is weird, but my kids LOVE it! Once you are set up you don’t have to leave Ocean Lakes until you check out. It’s on the beach, has its own water park, putt putt, arcade, community building with entertainment and Sunday church services. There are also lakes for fishing, a snack bar, and laundry facilities. We like to stay in the K section with a tree for shade. We have a pop up. The section up towards the beach is basically a parking lot with very little privacy. You can rent golf carts when you arrive, if you want, but you don’t have to. Every time I’ve been there it was clean and family friendly. No late-night drama. If you are looking for a more natural camping experience, try Huntington State Park.
…each season offers a different experience. We take kayaks in Spring and Summer.
We were there in our pop up earlier this month (February, 2021). It was chilly and windy, but we came prepared. We stayed in our pop up, with heat and we were cozy. Our first night we saw a spectacular sunset! The next day we climbed the lighthouse, and had a good conversation with the volunteer tour guide. The next day we went out to the boneyard beach end and had the place to ourselves. The bathhouse was really nice. It was always clean with plenty of hot water.
