Our first time to Myrtle Beach and it was cold and windy. We had a site near the beach and bathhouse. The bathhouse was clean and tiled. Mostly snowbirds around, looked like. Lots of trailers around us. As someone else said, the covered shelters at each site were often screened with plastic, hung with lanterns, etc. Could be a little tacky, but I guess had I been there for a month or more I may have done the same. The beach sites (separated by the dunes from the beach) were extremely windy. Pool was closed and store too (rep. opens April 1 or so). The beach was LOVELY even in the cool weather, lots of shells. Management very nice and helpful. Good trash pickup. The seasonal areas did look a little sad as old trailers have a way of taking on some ticky tacky and mildew under the shade. But generally everything looked clean. We are returning in April for a holiday week- hope we enjoy it as much! The area is very convenient for shopping and eating out. Wal-Mart, Tanger Outlets. They have reasonable storage between visits and will tow your camper to your site. And repair company came to our site to do a little work on our trailer. Very convenient.

Our first visit here was wonderful. We had a large site in the keycard entry area for our trailer. The view onto the bay was lovely, the pool small but picturesque, the docks were great. Many kids were riding bikes, using nets off the docks. My grandkids 9 & 11 loved the sandy beach with sandbars for play, and their yellow lab loved the doggie beach and dog yard and friendliness. Bathroom was clean, really nice. Store was well stocked. We didn't even go into Ocean City, as we were only there 4 nights, and there was plenty to do on site. Really liked that the bus could have driven us into the OC area, and also to Assateque Island State Park. When I go back, I will take advantage of the kayak rental. They also have rental golf carts and cottages. Most of the sites are transient- NO ticky tacky! The cost was excessive, and I had to pay extra for the 11 year old, but it was really a lovely site, and it looks as if people with all these toys (trucks, RVs, motorcycles, boats, kayaks, golf carts) are willing to pay it. I know we will go back.

We camped here in our trailer with 4 grandkids during midweek. We had a spot at the end of a road across from the grass and stream. It was very picturesque, with cows grazing in the countryside and ducks in the stream. Of course, walking into Dutch Wonderland was the focus of our trip and just wonderful to be able to go back and forth for naps and dinner, and to return for the water park. Playground and camp store were nice. I must have used the private for-one bathroom before anyone else; it was as clean as home, and I let the management know it! We left Friday, as the extra spaces filled, the noise level grew, bicycles multiplied. But, it seemed everyone was having a good time. We just prefer it a little quieter.

This was our first trailer camping experience, and we had a fairly good time; we visited Gettysburg sites and ate in town mostly. We wanted to get to know our camper. A camping neighbor helped us out when we had a little trouble, very friendly people! Our site was pretty close to everyone, not too much privacy or shade. Our trailers were facing, with our tables about 15 feet apart, fire pits less than that, and their Saturday night guests becoming ours. I had made a reservation online a couple weeks before. Now that I have been a few places, the restrooms were okay, but had quite a few ants. I wasn't motivated to use the shower, but my husband did without issue. We didn't attend any social activities, but they have them. There was a Civil War reenactment at the campground that weekend.

This was our second camping experience, and we loved this campground. It was clean, friendly, visually pleasing, with wooded and rustic looking sites. Even though we were close to our neighbors, boulders and trees separated us very well. The pool, playground and mini golf areas were well taken care of and the flowers were beautiful. I did use the bathrooms- older but okay, but some ants around. I think they are hard to avoid in these wooded areas. They have cabins, too, but we weren't too close. The overall feeling was serenity, and there weren't too many people making loud noises. There was a nice camp store, pancake breakfast on weekend, movie night, and other offerings. We just enjoyed our peace! The sign says this was a top KOA winner, and I can see why!
