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
Stayed here while passing through. Had stayed here in the past and had a problem with the messes dogs would leave every where. Glad to see they have a new policy, but saw they didn't enforce it. Seen many dog owners walk away when their dog finished their business. Ordered propane from the front desk when we checked in. We were told it would arrive between 11 and 1 the next day. Waited around till 2 and called the office. The truck had been delayed and would not be there till the next day. Even in the off season, the golf carts are everywhere. If you are out walking, get out of their way. Not sure if we will stay here again. - shell5
Well maintained, easy access, level spaces, great laundry facilities. Would return. - Barry & Annie
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
Price reflects C2C membership. Definitely “urban camping”, it sits in the middle of Myrtle Beach, SC. Resort is close to many attractions, including the beach. Good paved internal roads throughout. Sites are concrete and each have a concrete patio with a picnic table. There are grass and trees between the sites. Big Rigs will be fine. Sites are average size. Our site was not large enough for RV, truck and jeep; however, there are additional parking areas throughout the campground. Sites are very level. There is a very nice pool area that overlooks Intracoastal Waterway. There are two nice laundry rooms. Good Verizon cell phone coverage and easy to get DirecTV satellite connection. - GLPColorado
Roads are dirt and lots are close together. On concrete pads that are level. Was OK, only thing that was real negative was the 12 midnight curfew. - J Brown
Not a bad campground. Wi-Fi advertised but it did not work. Office staff will direct you to a library less than a mile away with great Wi-Fi. Concrete pads are nice but only as wide as your RV, so when you step out it's into dirt. Rained the first day of the week we were there and the muddy site and roads lasted for days. Looks like roads were paved at one time but they are covered with dirt and sand now. I suspect they were covered on purpose to fill in the deep pot holes. Four dirty washers and dryers for the whole park. Take something to clean the washes out with. We washed clothes twice and needed to clean the washers both times. Its not something the park seems to do. Other than what was noted its an OK park with easy access and a good location. - Igotjam
This is a quite RV Park, even though it is by a main road and a school. The sites are long enough, but there's no space in between for privacy. Cable is available for a $2.00 fee, which we took, but I feel should have been included. We were not offered the free wi-fi access so did not use. Our Verizon 3G card worked great and had 4 bars on the phone. The laundry room need some TLC and we did not use the private showers. Trash is picked up at site daily which is nice. We will stay at this RV Park again if in the area. Motorcycles can be parked at your RV site which was a plus for us. Other RV Parks in the area have to park outside their gates. - kgkaroonie
Great campground for families with children because there are lots of activities. Lots of kids on bikes. Lots of walking to many of the amenities so you can rent golf carts at a high daily rate. No personal golf carts or motorized bikes. No Segways. Believe me, you can bearly walk because of so many golf carts. Lots of places for food on property. This is a Christian campground so no alcohol. Beach is beautiful. Pools are busy. If I return to Myrtle Beach, I would stay here, however, the whole town is too busy for a relaxing vacation. - BPowell
This was our first trip in our new travel trailer and it did not disappoint. Our site was directly across from the beach and we could hear the ocean which was wonderful. The indoor pool was warm and clean. Laundry facility was good and open 24 hours. Outside pool, water park, restaurants and store were closed for the season. There were two basketball courts, bocce ball and shuffleboard as well as a play ground. We will be returning for sure. - Jamclaughlin
Our time at this campground is one to remember. We found Lakewood Camping Resort had many amenities we enjoyed; mini golf, trade store, food station, golf cart rental, fishing, waterpark, great access to the beach and much more. Our site needed some minor leveling. Campsite didn't include a fire-pit, but your personal fire-pit is allowed. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. Verizon phones were able to maintain a 4g signal. Pull-thru sites are available. Campground and roads are big rig friendly. Campground within 1 mile of gas stations, food, freeway access and grocery store. In fact, a small Walmart store is across the street. This campground is located between two other large campgrounds. But, after visiting the other campgrounds, we found Lakewood Camping Resort was our favorite. - HappyCampers227
We looked at some other places on the beach and they were parking lots. This KOA is a beautiful campground and it's only a few blocks from the beach. The staff is super friendly and helpful. You are close to lots of things like Broadway and Market common, etc. However being that close to everything and it's still very quiet. It's a small oasis and you start to forget you are in a commercialized beach strip. If we head back to Myrtle Beach we will definitely book here. - Way2Roll
Staff friendly and courteous. We had reserved a six night stay at the published rate, but upon arrival we were informed that a special was in effect and we would receive two nights for free! We were given a welcome packet with recommendations on nearby restaurants and other information. Sites larger than most KOAs. We had a 30A/20A pull through. It did not have a fire ring but we asked a staff member and one was promptly delivered. Cable TV worked well, WiFi worked mostly but was occasionally weak. Park clean and well maintained. Would stay here again. - Frequenthinker
Staff is 24/7 and very friendly. The agility course was a fantastic feature for dogs large and small. Clean sites, and facilities. - Forged Footprints
This campground is very good for it's location, but not so much for a good "camping experience". The good - proximity to the beach and attractions in the area, a good fishing pier, and it's rate as compared to other upper end campgrounds in the area. The laundrymat machines looked new. The bad - the sites are small and crowded. There are a limited number of full hookup sites, and most sites are water and electric only. And yet, there is only ONE dump station for 300 sites! We saw waiting lines each morning around checkout time. Also, the dump station was flooded for a while after a rain. They really need to upgrade the dump station. Bring plenty of electrical extension cable, the utilities are not well spaced in the sites.
I recommend this CG to use as a base camp to visit attractions in the area and not for just camping. - Bama Camper
We always stay at the state park for the value. You can't beat the price for camping at the beach and the actual beach in front of the campground has always been well kept and clean when we go. Some of the bathrooms are really outdated but the volunteers and staff stay on top of them. They are really pretty accommodating, especially with concerns. Very shaded sites that we have been on and I love that you can choose your site online and see a pic of It. Not many places offer that. - Melmel383
Stayed here for 4 nights. Good paved narrow roads. Sites are close to each other and mostly dirt. Short walk to beach from loop 5. - philandterri35
This was our 2nd stay here and we would stay again if we have the opportunity. I have a 41 foot 5th wheel and the spot I was in was a little tricky because of other campers vehicles parked close to the road but I was able to get in okay. There are many rows that had plenty of room to manuver but we happened to have a site near the water that was tight. The facilities are well maintained and all the employees that we interacted with were friendly and knowledgeable. - namgrunt51
This was our second visit to the Myrtle Beach Travel Park in two years. Professional and always friendly Check-In. The park was about 60% + occupied. We again found the park and facilities very clean and organized with daily trash pick-up. Good mix of middle age/older campers this time of the year. We like to travel to Myrtle Beach when children are back in school … Totally relaxing beachfront camping with a beautiful wide clean beach. Myrtle Beach has tons of year round attractions, restaurants and shopping! The only negative is the very s-l-o-w internet connection. I know, I know, we’re here to relax, not spending beach time on the internet. We again toured/drove through the other “Big Name Camping Resorts” and again decided that Myrtle Beach Travel Park is what we really like … No speeding, out of control, parading golf carts with young teenage boys chasing teenage girls. We will definitely return again. Thank You again Myrtle Beach Travel Park! - Travelholicdog
We've stayed here several times and continue to enjoy it. We've been fortunate enough to get a site close to the ocean so that at nite we can hear the waves breaking. The sites are not spacious but adequate and have a covered picnic table. They are a combination of sand and grass. It's the perfect location for us near golf, restaurants we like, and good shopping. The only drawback is slow or non existent WiFi even though a router was installed on our pavilion. Maneuvering in our 45' coach can be a little tricky as there are many fifth wheels and the trucks have just enough room to get off the road. If the occupants aren't diligent about staying on their site, the turns are tight. Lord willing, we'll be back. - Team Asphalt
We had a great stay, good 50 amp, water pressure and cable. We really enjoyed the campground church service. This is a great, well run campground. The only problem is the fireworks every night at 10 pm or later. One night it was still going on at 11:45. I called security and was told they can't do anything that I should call 911. I believe it is called "Pass the Buck". - sportscoach 1
Nice place. This is our first experience at a 'Mega Park' so we didn't know what to expect. This place is HUGE! Heck, this place might even be big enough to have it's own zipcode. It's definitely a full service place, you'd never have to leave. We came early in April so some of the facilities weren't fully operating which is to be expected. I expect this place is crazy busy in the middle of summer. There are some other comments here about security but in our 4 night stay, I can say that security was very good. Great place, we'll certainly be back. - FamilyJ
Second time there. Upon arrival the site we reserved on line was smaller that we thought (corner site small yard); checked with office and they gave us a list of sites that were open and we were able to change sites but this was off season. Most camp sites are a short walk to the beach. - The Stephens
Disappointed... we booked here based on reviews and the kids' splash pad is what sold us! We stayed for 10 days and only got a warm shower once unless we walked to a different bath house. The bathrooms were always dirty, no ventilation so it was always steamy, and toilet paper was always missing. When we called to let them know they told us to just go to a different bath house (on more than 1 occasion). Some of the staff was great but a lot were rude and acted like they just didn't care. The only thing stopping us from packing up and going somewhere else was not getting our money back and the hassle. We wondered why there were only a few campers on our whole row, but maybe that's why. The splash pad was great but my daughter and I came out of the pool with a mysterious rash. - Melmel383
This used to be one of my favorite places to stay at Myrtle Beach but it seems that they are really falling down since my last stay a couple of years ago. I made reservations for a premium pull through site with a concrete pad on 12/27/2014 for five nights on my return trip from snowbirding in GA. When I checked in the young man told me that I had a premium pull through site and I just assumed that it had a pad.
When I got to the assigned site it is a sand lot and if it rains I am going to be sitting in a water hole. There is Zero grass anywhere on the site. I called the front office and after five attempts I finally got someone to answer the phone. The lady said that there were no concrete pads in the row that I was in. I walked up the lane and read off the numbers of the sites with pads. Then she said they were all filled. I informed her of the three sites that were empty. Then she said that they were all filled per the computer system.
I told the lady that I wanted my money back and she said no. I told her that I would stay this time but I would never return to Pirateland again. All she said was "Sorry to hear that." Now to the problems with the "Premium" site. The sewer pipe has a huge split down the side and I had to wrap it with "Duck" tape or sewer water would have spewed out the split when I attempted to dump the tanks.
When I went to connect my 50Amp cord the receptacle was cracked and broken and I had to wiggle it to make a connection. My EMS says that the power is good so I just hope that it holds for my short stay. When I went to hook up the water the handle to the spigot is broken and there is just nubs to turn the water on. I attempted to report it to the staff but I guess it doesn't matter to them. - WVA3185
I have camped at this CG for over 30 years. The complaints I have are far exceeded by the compliments I would give this location. The sites are huge. You can reserve a year ahead if you pay in full.
I think there are some rules that need enforcing, like speed limits, use of motorized ride on toys by children, and non-licensed drivers driving golf carts. The place is well-cared for, the staff is polite and helpful. Public restrooms are cleaned 2-3 times a day. They have beefed up he internet. Cable tv and full hook ups at EVERY site. Beach area includes a shelter over picnic table. - Momtotwo
