Date of Stay: April, 2015
This used to be one of my favorite places to stay at Myrtle Beach but it seems that they are really falling down since my last stay a couple of years ago. I made reservations for a premium pull through site with a concrete pad on 12/27/2014 for five nights on my return trip from snowbirding in GA. When I checked in the young man told me that I had a premium pull through site and I just assumed that it had a pad. When I got to the assigned site it is a sand lot and if it rains I am going to be sitting in a water hole. There is Zero grass anywhere on the site. I called the front office and after five attempts I finally got someone to answer the phone. The lady said that there were no concrete pads in the row that I was in. I walked up the lane and read off the numbers of the sites with pads. Then she said they were all filled. I informed her of the three sites that were empty. Then she said that they were all filled per the computer system. I told the lady that I wanted my money back and she said no. I told her that I would stay this time but I would never return to Pirateland again. All she said was "Sorry to hear that." Now to the problems with the "Premium" site. The sewer pipe has a huge split down the side and I had to wrap it with "Duck" tape or sewer water would have spewed out the split when I attempted to dump the tanks. When I went to connect my 50Amp cord the receptacle was cracked and broken and I had to wiggle it to make a connection. My EMS says that the power is good so I just hope that it holds for my short stay. When I went to hook up the water the handle to the spigot is broken and there is just nubs to turn the water on. I attempted to report it to the staff but I guess it doesn't matter to them.

Rate is based on a monthly rate. The water pressure does tend to vary throughout the day but 40 PSI seems to be the lowest it goes. Electric is metered at $.13/Kwh for long term stays. Electric is rock solid at 120V. No cable and Sat TV can be a bit challenging. OTA channels are good...approximately 20. No pool or other kid friendly amenities. Pads are all concrete/level and the roads are all paved. Some sites are better than others and if you intend to stay for an extended time try to get an end site (#22 & #23) are the best in my opinion. Campground is quiet at night and yes there are chickens and Jasmine (owner's dog) wandering about but they generally stay around the office. Bathrooms are Unisex and have always been spotless.
Date of Stay: December, 2011
Have been here since the first of December 2011. Park host is quite nice. No amenities for children. Sites are adequate. Internet was down for a couple of weeks and when they got it back up they did not put the repeater back out in the original location when I came in. Have said they are going to put it back out in the park to improve the signal. Pet cleanup is hit and miss. More to do with poor pet owners than the staff. Laundry is clean with three washers/driers that were all operational. Rate is based on a monthly rate of $370 a month (30 amp) which includes electric and Wi-Fi. Good wintering park but might not come back if they don't resolve the Wi-Fi issue and the pet cleanup issue in the near future.

Pros: Level sites; gravel pull through sites; concrete patio; good water pressure; good electrical service; friendly staff; clean campgrounds; rate was Passport America. Cons: Wi-Fi had issues with the connectivity at times; spaces were close together.

This is an older campground so I am not quite sure if I am reviewing the same one as the previous poster albeit the website address is for the same place. The Pros: Level sites; gravel drives; friendly staff; Passport America rate; great BBQ cafe close by; WalMart about 5-8 miles away. The Cons: The mens bathroom was disgustingly filthy. If I hadn't had my own facilities, I would have left the first night. The grass was in need of mowing when I arrived but they attempted to mow it before I left. The sites that were supposed to be pull through sites had trees at the end of the site and the owner's vehicles were parked close to the exit so if you tried to pull on through, you would have been into the trees trying to make the swing out of the site. There was a permanent mobile home close to the pull through sites that had several young adults as well as small children that were quite noisy. I wouldn't dream of putting my clothes in the equipment that they had in the laundry room. Sites were narrow and if you had someone with slides beside you I don't think you could extend your awning. There was a sign posted in the laundry room that said that you were not allowed to dump your holding tanks because their system could only handle daily usage. It said that there was a free dump at the national park. I am not sure if they were referring to the black tanks or not since the sign only stated "Holding Tanks". We all know what happens though if you leave the black tank valve open to permit it to drain continually. I will not be returning.
Date of Stay: May, 2005
Stayed a week and it is a very laid back campground. Not a campground for those looking for a lot of on site activites. They do not even have a pool. A real good place to just hang your hat and relax. Also a good base camp to explore the Outer Banks. A previous review stated that the showers were small but the men's were regular fiberglass stalls like I see a lot of people have in their homes. The restroom was not elaborate but it was clean all the times that I used it. The sites were level and the internal roads were gravel but smooth. The owners were not in the office once when I went in to check on leaving the next morning but I just left a note and the lady came to my site later and talked to me.
