Stayed over a 3-day weekend period. Nice park with good sites. Sites were arranged so that you did not feel crowded next to your neighbor. We camped with five other campers (2 motor homes and 4 pull type) and everyone had an easy time getting level. There was an open area between campers where we could set up cooking/eating together. No Wi-Fi anywhere in park. Poor telephone signal. Roads were level. Most roads for driving were paved and those dirt roads for walking were easy to walk. Only one camper tried the swimming area and commented that it was very crowded with day visitors. There was no charge for entering the park. Part of our group enjoyed a guided moonlight kayaking trip on the lake one evening. If you are looking for a quiet get away, this is a good park to visit.

This is a beautiful campground but not one to spend a lot of time in unless you're into horses. No cable, no TV satellite signal, no Wi-Fi or ability to get signal for computer with USB key, and not much signal for cell phone. The water pressure was almost non-existent. The swimming pool was beautiful but not used much, perhaps because it was quite a walk down and back up the hill from the main campground. The signs on the door of the cafe located in the main campground advertised golf cart rentals but when we inquired about renting one we were told they were not renting golf carts this summer at all, even though the sign was still prominently displayed. A golf cart would have made it easier to use the pool. We did enjoy the tour of Loretta Lynn's plantation house, etc., but that only took about an hour and 45 minutes. I would not return except for a stopping-off overnight stay if we were traveling in that direction.

We love Lakewood Campground. We have been coming for many years. It would be nice if they could get rid of the sand spurs. We would definitely recommend it over other campgrounds at Myrtle Beach.
