Stayed here 2 nights in September. The nights I stayed were over the Labor Day weekend, the campground was full to the brim. This is a great place to bring the kids, the beach, a huge pool complex with nice lazy river, putt putt golf, game rooms, ice cream parlors, pizza , BBQ, seafood, they have whatever you want. The interior roads are all dirt, sand and tree roots. Some of the turns are pretty tight. On the negative side you had to watch where you put your feet down or you would step in dog poop, there was a lot of it, I just don't know how that is when everyone I listen to picks up after their dogs. I also wish the park would enforce their own rules about operating golf carts, I saw a number of kids under the age of 16 driving them. Overall we had a good time here and I will come back. We camped at Pirateland Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here because it was a good stopping point on our trip to the Adirondacks from Florida and the resort offered many amenities for children. Is located on the beach with easy access. It was a three night minimum stay. Unfortunately, it rained heavily and caused flooding on many of the sites. This is not a good choice if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing campground. Extremely crowded and sites are close together. You will be cozy with all of your neighbors. Kids played mini golf, went to beach, fished in pond, lazy river, pool and water playground. We had fun but it was not for us. Site was dirty and poorly cared for. We camped at Pirateland Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Have been staying at this facility for almost 30 years and have watched it steadily go down hill. I understand summer is a busy time but I wish they would at least enforce the quiet time rules. Lots of golf cart traffic well after midnight with radios blaring. Also fireworks continually going off after hours. Several of the roads have become almost impassable due to low hanging branches. Cable tv did not wok for several of us in the area we were in and the WIFI was hit or miss. Can definitely say this has become a last resort place to camp for us. The only good thing I see about it is they do have a splash pool and lazy river to help keep the kids entertained. We camped at Pirateland Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

When we called we told them we have a 41 ft fifth wheel and an extra vehicle and were assured that the site was large enough to accommodate our camper and vehicles. The check in process was quick and efficient but not overly friendly. The campground was FULL of kids on bikes and people in golf carts! While trying to maneuver on narrow roads to our site a young child on a bicycle came flying past our camper on the right side. Had I not noticed her and alerted my husband he could have easily hit her! We stayed at an inland site. Besides being narrow the road turns are tight, a lot of trees close to the roads, and some uneven spots in the road where tree roots are pushing up. Our site was in the middle of a row. We had trees, bushes, and neighboring vehicles to contend with trying to back in. We were fortunate enough to have 3 fellows come help guide us in. The back of our camper was literally parked 5 inches from the camper and vehicle in the site behind us. Had to park our tow vehicle and car right along the door side of our camper leaving no room to sit out or use a picnic table. When we went out with our car there were hedges on both sides of Schooner Rd. that intersects with the main road. These made it very difficult and unsafe to try to turn left with all of the golf cart and bicycle traffic going both directions on the main road. Getting out of our site was also a nightmare. In order to hook up our tow vehicle had to block the entire road and had to be at an angle in order to make the swing out of the site without hitting vehicles and coaches on the other side of the road. All in all it was an unpleasant getting in and out and we will not stay there again with this size rig! We camped at Pirateland Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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! We camped at Pirateland Family Campground in a Motorhome.

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! We camped at Pirateland Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Pirateland Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground, easily the largest I've ever stayed in, but it didn't seen congested. Stayed in a beach site, which was actually quite roomy compared to other places I've stayed. Out site had a wood shelter over the picnic table which was nice. Can be a challenge to get into the sites as there were a lot of trucks parked close to the road, but was doable. They had a nice pool, lazy river and splash/play area, also an indoor pool. Large camp store and laundry room, and a nice selection of food places on the guprounds. We camped at Pirateland Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Large beachfront park with pool and splash park. Generally well run with on-site food, store, mini golf, paddle Boats, etc. Crowd tended to be families, though tended toward a lot of loud driving around on golf carts, smoking, etc. Sites near beach are very tight--could only see other campers out all windows. Felt very crowded in the campsite. Enjoyed our stay. Not the kind of place where smaller kids can ride bikes or play outside though. No place for them to go safely. Maybe a site on the inside would have worked better. We like the campground and the amenities but the constant smell of smoke from the other campers which were around us on all sides and lack of play space near the site for the kids was a detractor. The patrol does a good job though and promptly shuts down all the revelers at 11pm. We would stay again, though we would probably check out other places first. We camped at Pirateland Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Like all RV resorts in Myrtle Beach, this place is "yuuge", hundred and hundreds of sites. We were assigned a site that was a very tight 90 degree back-in, if not for the vacancy of the sites opposite us, it would have been a very difficult place. Thank goodness we visited in April, a rather light month, can't imagine what this place is like in the thick of summer. Site utilities were in good shape. Each site had its own covered shelter with picnic table, though added to the complexity of backing in. But, upon successful setup you are literally seconds away from beautiful Myrtle Beach. Absolutely fantastic, one of the top five beaches along the Atlantic coast for sure. We camped at Pirateland Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

First time heading down to Myrtle Beach and Pirateland was a great campground to call home base while there for a week during spring break. Campground has amazing access to the beach, just a few feet from our site. Pool, lazy river, and kids splash areas were great. Food trucks were on site at the campground everyday and were very good. Verizon Wireless signal was marginal at best, and wifi was very spotty. Cable connection was poor on the lower channels but got better the higher the channel. Able to get satellite signal in the site. The wooden shelter on the site was very worn and LOW, caution if you are tall you will be ducking the whole time you are around them, and watch as they really hurt when you run into them. Cannot wait till we can go back, I would highly recommend Pirateland! We camped at Pirateland Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We usually spend a couple of weeks in Myrtle Beach on the way home from Texas at Ocean Lakes, however, could not get in there this year. Pirateland does not have the same appeal as Ocean Lakes, however, has full amenities. We were close to the beach which is very nice. Hookups are a bit strange which water and sewer on one side towards back and electric, cable on the other side. Also, we were told we had to back our unit in from the passenger side which is very difficult. There are side huts for picnic tables which are in pretty bad shape. Laundry is cold water wash only, but there are lots of machines and price is comparable to other parks. If possible in the future we would prefer a stay at Ocean Lakes, but Pirateland is not a bad park just not as nice as Ocean Lakes. We camped at Pirateland Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nothing was open yet they charge full price $800 a month Tons of Ferrell cats running around along with 100's of Canadian geese and ducks. Watch where you walk! They don't allow golf carts only rent them $50.00 a day. This isn't a resort more like the owner is greedy.

Internal roads are wide and paved, sites are grass/sand, mostly level (needed one leveling board) and fairly easy to back into, facilities worked well, but are located at the back of the site so you will need longer cords/hoses, site was satellite friendly. Staff were friendly, park WiFi is free/unsecured and worked well most of the time, T-Mobile cell service was fair to good 4G LTE. The park was quiet. We would stay here again.
