We arrived at the park and were immediately taken for a tour of the facility. This park is a Thousand Trails park, which is a membership park that you can join for $450.00 a year. The park is very old and run down, and most of the sites are small. There are also a lot of steep hills and curves within the campground, making it difficult to maneuver with a large RV. We weren't impressed with the facility, so we declined the membership, but since we had made the trip, decided to stay the weekend. We were allowed to choose a campsite (no reservations are made), so we chose a site that we could access and fit our RV into. The site was "handicap" accessible, with a deck for a wheelchair, but the deck was uneven, and the ramp part had pulled away from the flat part, creating a tripping hazard. There were also very long screws sticking out from the side of the ramp. The power didn't work when we plugged in. We checked our RV, then asked someone to come out and check the box. After about an hour, they determined there was a broken wire within the box, and it could not be used. They told us we could find another site, but due to the hills and lack of other suitable sites, we couldn't find another site we could access. We decided to return home since we only lived about 45 min. away. I went to the office to ask for a refund, however, there was no one there (it was 6:30 pm). When we finally found someone, he claimed he didn't know how to do a refund on a credit card, and I'd have to wait for the office manager to do it on Monday. I reluctantly left without my refund, and have yet to get it a week later. I have camped most of my life, and have NEVER came across a situation like this. I wouldn't recommend this facility to ANYONE, and wonder who would want to spend $450 a year to stay here. Oh, and as we were leaving, a lady was attempting to check in. We got to talking, and she was supposed to be in site 100! They had given her site away to us.

We stay here each July, and sometimes in the fall/winter. We actually have been there twice in July 2011, once in our travel trailer, and while there, traded for a 5th wheel, and came back to stay on July 29. We had a nice, large site both times. All sites are pull-through...most other campgrounds in Myrtle Beach have much smaller back-in sites. Many sites near the beach are paved, but we prefer to stay in the 4000 section since it is quieter. It can get noisy at night, due to teens on golf carts (which you can bring for an extra charge...they also rent them). But overall, this is my favorite campground. I've been staying here for 20 years, first with my parents, now with my husband. As far as I'm concerned, there's no where else to stay while in Myrtle!

Breathtaking views from the top of the mountain. Very clean park, nice large sites, friendly staff. This campground would not be ideal for families with small children, since there is nothing for them to do on site, but perfect for couples looking for quiet and relaxation. Only one drawback to our mountaintop view...the wind broke our awning during a severe thunderstorm. However, the staff was helpful in getting the awning off the top of the camper so we could leave. So if you stay here, put your awning in if there is a threat of storms! Otherwise, fantastic!!
