Location can't be beat. Steps away from the beach and a great pier to enjoy in the evenings. We were packed in there but everyone around us was friendly. Cable, Wi-Fi (not free) and hookups were good. - buckingthenorm

Very crowded park; especially, if you are next to a site that has a long 5th Wheel and 2 pick up trucks. People smoke everywhere. On the beach, in their campsite, in and around their pool. Just be ready to make adjustments if you are not a fan of cigarette smoke.
The campground itself is OK. Not sure if it was the wind or the mass amount of people but there was trash (plastic bottles, wrappers..etc) everywhere. - ETCTA

This campground is extremely crowded and all the sites are very close together! That said, if you want to camp very close to the ocean, then this is your place. We did enjoy our stay because of our location and had fun visiting the pier each night. The staff were super nice and friendly and we really did feel like a welcomed guest. But if you are looking for a little space and less people, this probably isn't the place to stay. - Roadschool

This is a gated membership/Coast to Coast resort but is also open to the public and honors Good Sam & Passport America. it is very neat and clean, w/paved roads, concrete pads & patios, 50 amp & free basic cable. The permanent structures and "park homes" are very well kept and neat. Several sites are undergoing lengthening & widening to accomodate today's larger rigs. The resort has mini golf, playground, basketball court, horseshoes and a large clean pool w/patio & lounge chairs. The clubhouse hosts numerous activities all year round. - rracer5

Stayed several times before. Good location in Myrtle Beach especially when kids/grandkids are staying in the area. Good paved roads. Easy turning through park. Only negative is that trash dumpsters are in pretty inconvenient spots. Power this stay was OK. Can walk to restaurants from campground. - MissingLinc

This is a good alternative to the real hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach. North Myrtle is a bit less hectic. The barefoot landing next door has so much stuff from ice cream shops to restaurants to clothing. Plenty to keep kids entertained. While the park is on the inner coastal, you can;t really see anything except the ditch of water out the back. Great pool and some social gatherings which were fun. It is a large park with lots of seasonal trailers and park models which come for long weekends etc. Plenty of room for us short term passers-by though. The price isn't cheap; I got a little Passport America discount but the area is expensive. - FrancisandRenee

If you are a fan of the confederate flag this is the rv park for you. The flag was displayed throughout the park.
The park is located between a residential subdivision and a high school.
The services as advertised were not available, i.e. shuttle service.
The park is very small and there is no secure entry into the park.
The park is not bike friendly nor is there anywhere to ride a bike outside of the park.
The park is not located near any attractions, stores, restaurants, and the beach is at least 10 miles away.
The park owner assigned an unqualified employee to fill the propane tank on my rv resulting in damages costing several hundred dollars to repair. The park owner acknowledge the mistake made while the tank was being filled and promised compensation in the form of a credit card credit, which was never processed. We selected the park because it was rated at excellent but in reality it should have been rated lower.
We will never stay there again nor will we recommend this park to anyone. - 1jimmie1

We were here over Memorial Day, lots of group parties across the street from our site. Interior roads are dirt and some gravel. We had a pull-through site, with grass around the site. This park was OK but we will try another park next trip. - 4jim

Very friendly staff, clean facilities, trash pick up from your site, lots of things for kids to do- paddle boats, canoe, arcade, fish, check out games and books. - DDD1

We found this campground by looking thru rv park reviews, it's a great place for families and pets. Very crowded but to be expected for this kind of rv camping. We are less than 500 yards from the beach. A short walk. There is a small water park with 3 slides, for big kids and 3 slides for little kid, plus a lazy river and indoor pool. This is a Christ centered camp, but not pushy. We had a great time. Great for families. We will come again. Our site is close to our neighbors, but there is over 1000 site. It is to be expected. Our plan was to hit the beach each day and we have done that. - big_country

This campground has improved alot over the years. The rate is high for this type of resort but it is an all inclusive rate. They have putt-putt, paddle/canoe boats bike rentals and a waterpark that is free to use. They also offer a country variety type show that is also included. They are a family resort and alcohol is "prohibited". They will not say anything unless you get rowdy, rule is to keep the "partying" to a minimum. They do not allow temporary campers to bring in golf carts and I have mixed feelings about this, but I guess it helps keep the cart traffic down. The security teams does a good job and enforce quiet time (11PM) strictly and safety is a priority. This is a oceanfront campground and everyone likes to have a good time, the kids have lots to do and of course they get loud, but I consider it a blessing! The sites vary in size but most are more than adequate. The one time I had a site issue they found one that was better and switched us. The summer is very busy and I suppose its possible to fill up completely and not be able to move. I have stayed at other area campgrounds and all in all this fits us very well and we call it our Beach Home. - racer93

Check-in was easy but not at all personal. We were told no personal golf carts but they can be rented. We went to our campsite and it was too tight to get in. With help from other campers we got in and got set up. Golf carts everywhere. The rules are you must be over 16 to drive carts. There were kids driving carts all over. They would not stop at signs and lower speeds were not a option for them. There was no parking for anything other than golf carts. We did not rent a cart due to price; this would have doubled the price of the stay. The beach was nice. The pool and slides were so full as you could barely move. The pool and slides are not large enough for the crowds it draws. And did I mention no parking for anything but golf carts? After dark they have concerts that we did not go to. The crowds were out the door. After everything closes the kids ride around the park on golf carts till 1:30-2:00 in the AM with radios blasting right outside. Don't get me wrong I have 2 kids that were with me on this trip but after 3 days they were ready to come home. We stayed 9. When complained about the carts and music; what we got was SORRY. The bad thing about the whole thing they don't seem to care enough about the park to enforce their own rules. The part of the park they call villas look to be in need of repair and some looked to be empty and run down. I will not be back! My kids 9 and 12 said the mountains are calling! - Chris T

Very expensive, if you have children traveling with you, it would probably be a better value, as they have lots of activities for children. Camp was clean and well maintained. Very extensive staff. "ride to beach" is a cart that takes you 3 blocks and lets you out to walk the rest of the distance. The site we were given was hard to back into for our 38' fifth wheel. - Glendaj

Campground was "OK", but too expensive, for not being on the beach. They did have a shuttle that dropped us off about a block from the beach.
Site were a little close. - JJ & CC

Everyone that works at the park was great. Campsites are in tall pine trees, which makes it cooler with the ocean breeze. The park is within walking distance to the beach, drugstore, restaurants and water park. Wi-Fi works fine most of the time, but everything else is great. If I come back to Myrtle Beach I'm staying here. - Lindas Old Man

Nice state park.
The bad - Whoever is in charge of the bathhouse and restroom renovations needs to be replaced. Excess grout all over, missing tiles and no one working on them on our loop.
We did not see any cleaning during our 4 day stay.
The good - Nice long sites, good electric, and all amenities worked well.
Close to the beach, but very crowded on the weekends, especially Saturdays.
Good location, close to main downtown attractions. - thetravelkids

We came for a weekend and wished we had booked a week! We arrived on a Friday night and were greetwd by a wonderful campground host, she even offered suggestions for dinner.
On Saturday we were able to attend 2 Ranger led activities, both kept our 4 and 5 year old engaged! They offer a patch program, complete 3 activities and earn a patch. Also, be sure to ask about their Junior Ranger Program.
On Sunday we finally managed to get to the beach...it it very clean.
Everything was in great working order - bathrooms, trash receptacles, etc.
The only downfalls were the line to get into the park is very long on weekends due to people coming in for picnics and some portions of the road.
We were on site 195 which didn't offer a much privacy - it was right on a turn. Also, no place to hang our clothes line.
Regardless, this still gets a 10 for Ranger programs! - MVP

This state park is one of the best I go to. The long curving entrance is wonderful! The fee station is painted and the employees there have always been top notch. The other employees and volunteers are top notch too. Our site was well groomed and ready when we got there. Security rates well here too. I noticed a hint of security with out it being overwhelming. Their facilities are all in good working order. The main bathhouse we used was cleaned twice a day. And, all showers sinks and toilets were in good repair. The site (114) we had was level and very large. The picnic table was in good repair and there were plenty of shade trees. The laundry room was large and the camp store offered almost every item you might need. The beach was just a short walk or there were plenty of parking spaces to drive your vehicle to. There were hiking trails, a nature center, and an activity center. The only items lacking were a basketball goal, tennis courts, and an arcade. This campground has a ocean pier. This pier is great for fishing. Their nature programs are great for children. Pets are very welcome here at this campground. WIFI is available at this campground. This campground is very family friendly. They have signs announcing no alcoholic drinks allowed. Lastly, the main roads into and out of were in good shape. - mudhound

We have spent a week here for three years in a row. Since last year, the kiddie pool has been upgraded with a new splash area / water feature which is a nice edition. As always, the bathhouses and showers were meticulously cleaned and nice. The pool stays very busy every afternoon, but you are still able to find an empty lounge chair which is consistently at problem at some of the neighboring campgrounds we tried out. We do miss the shaved ice counter that used to be located below the camp store. The food at the Oasis pool counter is cooked upon order and quite good for grill fare.
Overall, this campground has a very nice, relaxed feel to it. Lots of kiddies on bikes and families walking dogs in the evening. Golf carts are limited to those with seasonal spaces so no pre-teens going crazy all evening and running little ones over. There isn't an abundance of parking (for vehicles or golf carts) so a bike is the best option for getting around.
Our few improvements would be upgrading the website to allow online reservations and giving more of a guarantee as to location- maybe not a certain site, but a general area perhaps. The wifi is basically a joke and unusable except to download a Kindle book, but that is status quo at most campgrounds it seems and par for the course with the others in town. We'd be willing to pay an extra fee for wifi that actually connected with speeds that were usable for downloading. Our MiFi card served its purpose for attending to necessary work matters.
Of the three large campgrounds in the Myrtle Beach area, this one offers the most relaxed atmosphere. - Kelsey Ledare

MBTP is a grade A facility all around. We stayed near the beach, good level sites and no problem for my 41' Fifth Wheel. The pool, the beach, the store - all top notch. Lots of kids, but they were no problem. Rest rooms were A/C'd and clean. We would stay here again. - bbnh2000

Best of the best.. Its a magnificent resort. Spacious, comfortable, great. And why I agree with the memorial day weekend. We liked a lot.We are going to be three days and stayed a week. We will not repeat. Perfectly clean and spacious pool. RV service equally attentive. - gofion

This was our first visit and we absolutely loved it! We already booked our stay for next year and the best part we got to ride through the park to pick the perfect site for next year!! Our site this year #3021 was concrete and roomy. One downfall of this particular site was the wind gusts streaming off of the high rise just above us so we couldn't use our awning a lot. I love the recycling areas! We didn't use the bathhouse, but did peak in one and they are super nice! We are beach goers, but did take a peek at the pool and it seemed small. They are building a water park for next year. Oh and Sandy's Pizza ROCKS!! We had an overall fabulous experience and can't wait for next year! - PKNewton

Absolutely a great place to stay, site 3172; 120-30 and 50 amp service; water, sewer, and cable hookup at no extra charge. Total daily charge was about 51 or so bucks per night. My site was a concrete pad with picnic table. I didn't use the showers/restrooms, as I'm self contained. FYI, you have to bring your own fire pit, they do not supply them in any shape or form, you bring your own or you do not have a campfire. Grounds are clean, close to the beach, nice pool, etc. Can't say enough about Ocena Lakes. I'm sure I didn't see everything they have to offer as this was primarily a "much needed rest" type of weekend even though I did go to the beach for a few hours and road my bike around. I'm in the process of changing out the old tube TV's to flat screens, took the new TV, new roll of cable but forgot to take the cable connections. The staff was extremely helpful in supplying and fitting the connections to my supplied cable and at no charge for any of it. The only negative is the RV service area, the guy just didn't want to help with cross referencing a gas strut part number for me. Seemed like he would if I had purchased my Class A from him.....I won't return to "service", but will return to the campground. - gsc66

Have been to this park a couple of times. The site was 933 which backs up to one of the small lakes. We were about half way between the beach and the pool, that was nice. We were with our son and his family with small kids. All hook ups worked great and was happy about that. The interior roads are narrow with all the vehicles parked but we still got backed in. Everything was great, but the showers, restrooms were old, outdated, and very dirty. Need to spend some money on them. The park could do a better job of policing the golf cart traffic. Many young kids, not old enough to drive, driving around the park at high rates of speed. Had a couple of them run in to each other in front of our site. - belanga

We have been staying at Pirateland every summer for 7 years. We love it. It is interesting to read the negative reviews about golf carts everywhere. That is how everyone gets around in a resort this large. Golf carts are both to get to where you need to go, and also for "sightseeing" within the campground. For us it is part of the experience. The beachfront lots closest to the beach are noisy and busy, especially at night up until quiet time at 11PM. If you like the loud music, high energy scene in the evening, camp in those areas. If you want more quiet and less hustle and bustle, stay in spots further from the beach, or in the "Inland" wooded area lots. Also avoid spots on any of the main roads (Pirateland Trail and Market St) for less traffic. Just keep in mind the Inland wooded area lots can be a tight fit. We enjoy the lazy river and pool. It's busy in the afternoon. If you want less of a crowd, go when it opens at 10AM. It is true that the rules are not being enforced as much as they should be. Kids driving golf carts is the biggest complaint we have. Quiet hour of 11PM is strictly enforced, however, as it should be. There are also too many little kids wandering around unattended, but that's something parents need to better consider. I would not recommend arriving after 6PM. Around that time, the golf carts start roaming ahead of the nightly golf cart parade on the strip and it makes it extremely difficult to navigate and park your camper. I feel very bad for folks I see arriving late. Again, we love it at Pirateland and plan to continue our yearly summer trips here. We have already booked for next year. - aj3u

Love this campground. We stayed in the beach front premium pull-through sites. Clean and well maintained. Great, convenient beach access. Great pool area with lazy river. My kids love the day camp. Workers are friendly and camp store has all you need. Great overall experience 2 years in a row. - C-C
