The weather did not cooperate while we were here but the campground was nice. It's sheltered behind some dunes and there are a surprising number of trees, so don't expect to see the ocean from any of the sites. Our site was clean and level. Coming from the mountains, that was a nice surprise! This was only our second real outing with our camper, so we had to go buy a longer hose for our water hookup. The spigot was pretty far away from the site. I think we bumped up from a 10' hose to a 20' hose. The fire ring was a bit far away too. There was an evergreen tree really close to the camper that made it difficult to put our awning out, but on the plus side, it did offer shade. Our site only had water and electric, so we used the bathhouse for showers. It's a bit dated, but it is clean. Since we had rain showers on and off all weekend, the mosquitoes got vicious in the evening. I wonder if a site on the inside of the loop would have so many bugs since they're in more of a meadow; we backed up onto trees. The beach was maybe a 10-minute walk through the trees. We were there in the off-season and it was deserted, but I have a feeling that it never gets very crowded on this beach, especially when compared to the crowds at Myrtle Beach. - CaptainCurls

Great beach location and especially that the beach is dog friendly! Florida and other states should learn from this, as it draws tourist dollars. Close enough to Charleston as a day trip or Myrtle Beach if you want tshirt shops. A bit pricey for a state park but worth it for the access to the ocean. - bobnemens

This park is great! It is clean, well-maintained, and quiet. The roads are spacious enough to navigate comfortably, even when the campground is at capacity. The lot we stayed on backed up to the woods and was very spacious. The WiFi is not great; nor is Verizon cellular coverage. The bath houses were nice and clean. The only drawback worth noting is the single, two-lane rd in and out of the campground. Traffic backs up QUICK waiting on the dump stations within 2 hours of check-out time on a busy weekend. Overall, LOVED IT! We will definitely stay here again in the future. - sc_shrpshtr

This is a beautiful park, possibly the best we have ever stayed in, and we have been travelling for over 10 years. Very clean, level sites, excellent services, friendly staff, huge clean laundromat, and right on a beautiful beach! We came for a night and stayed three! - D and M

Stayed 5 nights on friends recommendation. Nice level concrete pads near the beach. Checked in after dark. Very difficult to find our site, many sharp turns. Management should have an escort to show folks that are unfamiliar with property to their site. They should also advise people to unhook towed vehicles prior to proceeding to their site. - Odieman

Loved this campground! We stayed at few sections back from the beach under some nice shade trees. The campsites are situated to face the afternoon sun, so being under a tree definitely helped as the sun is pretty strong on the camping side, even with awnings out. The site we were on had a dirt base with some roots. It was fairly level and we had no issues leveling our rig. Many of the sites had concrete pads, the details of each site (trees, whether or not there is a pad, and size) are listed when you book online.
We had good utility connections... 50 amp power, water and sewer. We also had cable TV connection. We had an issue with the cable, and told them and within minutes someone showed up to fix it.. great service!
One thing that surprised me was there was no fire pit at each campsite... we noticed some campers brought their own portable fire pit... so if you plan to cook s'mores, remember to bring your own fire pit!
We rented a golf cart and enjoyed zipping around this huge property. You can park them right at the beach entrance. There were several beach entrances, each one had a shower and ample golf cart parking. If you come here, definitely plan to rent the golf cart (or bring your own)... it is the best way to get around. They told us there were like 29 miles of streets and roads within the property.
We did use the bathroom facilities a few times ... showers were modern, clean and good water flow. I would recommend this campground in the Spring or Fall... I was told that during the summer it is quite noisy and crowded. - mshaffer

Nice park with amenities to satisfy both young and old. Site was sand with picnic table. Relatively level, but would recommend taking something to anchor any leveling you may need. - Thisuldo

Dirty and rundown. Loud, drunks on golf carts. Alcohol prohibited?? Under aged people driving golf carts. Bathrooms disgustingly dirty. Worst campground ever! - Mikey S

We were evacuated from Cape Hatteras during the blackout. We are normally Ocean Lakes campers but they were full and Lakewood had a spot at the last minute. The spot was 1 away from the beach but very narrow. I felt like I was in a hallway. We didn't much care for Lakewood but our opinion changed. The golf cart "culture" is very different. No parade to speak of. Most people walk or ride a bike. There was never a hard time to get a parking spot at the pool. The times we were at the pool, it was never crowded. The overall feeling of the park is geared toward beach activity. A little like the parks in Hatteras. There were no drunken parties near us. As tight as the spots were everyone remained in their area and kept the noise down. The roads around the park are tight and dark. It's hard to see the walkers and riders without some type of reflective material or light. The staff we interacted with seemed bored and uninterested. We would stay again but it wouldn't be our first choice. - ClackCampers

The park is OK. It is old. Power was good. Some sites are not level. The worst part is kids driving golf carts! Some think they are Dale Earnhardt! - jjensen4

We tend to stay at another park when in this area. This time, they were booked and we couldn't get a site. We called Pirateland and they told us they had a site that we would have no problem getting in (we are very careful to talk to someone before coming because our 5th wheel is 43 feet long). Having stayed here years ago, we thought we would try it again. We are very disappointed! This park is very tight! The roads use a loop system and the sites are so small, people park right next to the roads. Couple that with trees and signs, it is a recipe for disaster in a big rig. After spending nearly an hour getting into the site, we are set. However, I am not looking forward to trying to get out of the site. Sites are very soft and large rigs will sink in. This will be our last visit to this park unless we downsize to something significantly smaller! If you're in a big rig, try one of the other parks. This park isn't for you! - Roger Beasley

Campground from hell! Every night is like you are at spring break, there are golf carts coming and going with screaming, loud music and flashing lights. This is our second night here and we paid extra for being next to the beach but next time we will go to the state park, which was recommended by the locals. Do not come here if you want piece and quiet in the evenings. This goes on until 11:00 pm. The office says they are sorry but will do nothing about it. Stay away from this campground. - Carol Kannard

This park is very convenient to the main strip and to other tourist attractions near downtown Myrtle Beach. While they do not offer any beach front sites (and you cannot see or hear the beach from any of the sites), the campground is an easy walk to the beach and fishing pier. If you don't want to walk from your site, there are several parking areas that are closer. The campground was clean, the sites were very level, and the staff that we dealt with were all very friendly and helpful. Our site was on the first loop, near the campground entrance, by the campground store. There is also another small store located at the pier. There's a small educational walking path located at the campground, but also playground areas within close walking distance. - FlowerChild7275

Great location for touring Mertyle beach and Huntington beach areas. Only a 6 rating due to it is not a typical roomy "state park" RV park because they pack you in like sardines much like a typical private owned park. Couple of turns were to tight for my 41' coach and did somecurb checking. Would not consider this park big rig friendly although it can be done. Will try a different Park next time in the area. Site 85 has no room on sides for tables and chairs, you have to hang out behind your camper. - Finn

Two words describe this park best: large and busy! Unfortunately, we stayed here for quite possibly the "wettest" week in the history of vacations. It rained ALL day, EVERYDAY! Because very few people were on the beach, the park seemed over-crowded. Despite that, things went as well as could be expected. Check in was quick and easy. We were on the back loop in the woods and did NOT experience any flooding. The roads were a tad tight in certain spots but I believe that was from all of the people. The dump station was convenient to the exit and had multiple hookups for people to use so the wait wasn't too long. The camp store and gift shop at the pier were nice and sufficiently supplied. Beach access was convenient at the entrance to the campground. This park really has a ton of things to offer outside of just camping. I am sure we would have enjoyed it much more with more favorable weather to experience everything. We will definitely be back and will update my review then. - sc_shrpshtr

park dirty and nasty, bathrooms/shower have mold on walls,no security, scary looking people out all night ,watched a drug sell outside our motorhome. 4 wheels loud and running fast. no speed limit. dogs pooping everywhere, no internet even though web site says there is. cable blurry. electric knocks out outside breaker. lots of trash- old boats, old campers with tarps around. food in restaurant terrible and charge too much. service awful. Will never go back if we have to stay over night at Walmart first. - campingmanna

Small lots of permanent campers, old campers with tarps and plastic on top. Old boats not running, cars and trucks broke down, construction trailers sitting around campers. Nothing for kids to do. Office closes early, no security. People from restaurant walking around with open beer. Watched couple walk from restaurant and get on boat so drunk they had a hard time getting it running. Stayed inside because of drunks fighting at a site next door. Dogs run loose with no lead and owners don't clean up. Left early next morning. They don't give refunds of any kind, even emergency. - grandma1

Stayed here to spend a week with RV friends from Myrtle Beach. We made reservations three months prior for a buddy site. When we arrived, the office had screwed up because they didn't know the layout of the campground when the reservations were made. We were put side by side instead of a buddy site.
Speed limit is 9MPH which is not enforced. Trucks and cars were flying up and down the dirt roads throwing dust everywhere. I am surprised there wasn't an accident over the 4th of July weekend with a child riding their bike into the street.
In my opinion, a "Campground Resort" is an oxymoron. This is a campground, and an expensive one. One week, even with a Military Discount was $454. A campground that has a pool is not a resort.
One other annoying thing. This campground sits on the Intercostal Waterway right down from a swing bridge. All day and night you hear a "DING, DING, DING" from the bridge as if someone didn't put their seat belt on. Quite annoying.
The only good thing I can report is the Waterway Café. The folks are great and put on a fantastic spread on Saturday with ribs, BBQ pork chops, chicken, hot dogs, and all the fixings for $10 a head. The food was great and no one left hungry. - Big Blue

Sites are concrete pad but all lean down toward the river. Bring your leveling blocks. They have picnic tables and fire rings. There are canoes and a boat ramp. The interior roads are full of pot holes, worse than our last visit in the spring. They said the rates are going up so we will most likely find another campground. - esta34950

They have a cancellation fee! $50 if canceled within 14 days of reservation date, $25 if canceled 14+ days from reservation date.
We stayed there in June and found it very nice. We were planning a rally for October and had some trouble with the details and pricing, but when we didn't get the required 15 rig minimum each person who had made a reservation was charged to cancel their reservation. Needless to say no one was happy about this except the campground.
Don't make a reservation unless you are certain you will be going! - Mary Teeter

This was our second time here and they made a few nice changes. The Park was cleaned up a lot since our visit last year (Hurricane). Deluxe patio sites were added, including hammocks, grills and nice patio furniture. We may book a deluxe site next time! It was a little difficult making reservations but that was because their phones were busy. They also charge an extra $5 a day "Resort fee" which they say is for the "free" pancake breakfast. - dcr126

Interior roads are a little tight somewhat. This is caused by campers not getting off the road. Speed limit is 10 miles an hour but we observed maybe one in ten observing it. Sites will be tight for anything longer than 40' feet. Entrance is not clearly marked. - Bamagolfer

A great park for RVers. Best amenities we've ever seen at a KOA (and we've seen many). Great location in MB. KOA got a lot right about this park! Sites pretty level. Wooded with high canopy for great shade in this blazing hot in summer beach town! Worth paying for that! I'd have given a 10 rating if pads were paved. Dog park is a bit out of the way and a bit hard to access. No grass for the doggies . Pull thru site size is good, but length is tight if 40' with a toad. Awesome Cable- typical overloaded and intermittent RV Park wifi. Extra charge for amenities and dogs is a bummer. - americanrascal

It was not a pleasant stay. No shade to cover RV from direct sunlight, temperatures inside the camper (with 2 roof mount a/c's on coldest temps) easily reached 85°+ it was miserable living in my home. The lots are laid out in a disorganized manner, large lots, & lots of grass cuttings brought inside from the flip flops or pets. - sparksarehers

We arrived after hours and for some reason the park owners insisted on meeting us and leading us in ( I think so they could collect their money). They asked us what year our rv was for some reason, but when we got there we noticed more 70 and 80 model units there than newer ones. They parked us in the middle of a field. The hookups were placed so far away that we had to go buy extensions for everything. There is no dumpster on site and the website advertises that they have trailer side trash pickup. We were informed that we are responsible for our own trash and not to leave it outside!! They don't have a laundromat on site either so be prepared to find one. We were there during the rain so the rv floor got filthy from all of the mud! I would not recommend this park, they totally over sell it on their website. - Tyh

While this site was roomy and quiet, the roads were rough and needed graded. We had convenient hookups for a toy hauler. There are no trees for the RV sites, and the ground is very sandy, but the scenery is pretty. We never could find the trash dumpster, but a call to the owner would have taken care of that. We arrived late to check in due to two blowouts in the extreme heat. We felt our hostess was in a hurry to be paid rather than showing us some hospitality. If I were the owner, I hopefully would have been gracious enough to let the campers settle in and settle up in the morning. We stayed a week, and the rest of our stay was pleasant. - rhudyfam

Two campgrounds in the area were full for the weekend but we did find a space at Apache. To say it's tight is an understatement. The gal checking us in told us to turn at the wrong street so we had to back into our site. Fortunately there was an empty lot in front so we were able to make it. If it was more crowded, forget it. I should have looked more carefully at the diagram map before turning down the road. The space between sites once the slides are out is minimal. There are picnic tables and the sites nearer the beach do have covered tables. WSE all fine and surprisingly the Wifi is good as there are many permanent units as well as the transients. The attractions at the CG are the beach and the pier so for that you have to sacrifice space. Personal golf carts are permitted as well as rentals. The location is close to places we like to eat and the Grande Dunes golf course so we would return even with the close quarters. There is a lovely church service on Sunday on the pier. Have never been to church over the ocean before. Lots of activities for the kids as well as a nice pool.We're in a 45' motorhome. - Team Asphalt

We come here often and this was the first time this year. Pier is still being worked on after the hurricane last year,but is open and usable. Campground is in great shape and pool, store,etc is all fine. This was the first time we had a front row site and it was awesome, very spacious. Water, electric and sewer were all good and all Beach sites have nice covered picnic table. - jeffs

Park is clean & quiet. The staff were all extremely helpful from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The bathhouse facilities were clean and well-maintained. - sc_shrpshtr
