We don't like Myrtle Beach.

Myrtle Beach Travel Park. We've gone every year at least once since 2005. We love it. Big campground, lots of spots, easy beach access. nice big pool. wooded lots as well as ocean front. Can get a little crowded near the beach accesses, but if you get out early and are willing to walk up beach a short distance you can have beach practically to yourself. Never had an issue!

Been watching this thread as we have been to MB several times with my daughters dance competitions. This is her last year and at the last minute we decided to take the RV and camp at one of the beach campgrounds. Took the advice and booked 6 nights at the Travel Park. Luckily they had a spot still available in June. The others were all booked up.
In our previous trips we were always in a condo, looking forward to being in our own place.

We've been at Ocean Lakes for a the last 9 days, and heading home tomorrow before the holiday rush. Picked Myrte as a pre-season week at the beach, that was a day's drive from home.

I would never come to Myrtle in the summer, much less any holiday weekend. We are not into the shopping / tourist attractions, so we really just wanted to spend some nice beach time, which we have been able to do every day. At high tide, the beach gets narrow, and they now only allow beach umbrellas less than 6'2" round to ensure that everyone has some space, and it does not become full of pop up canopies.

Our impressions as new RVers:

The campground and facilities are very well kept, and clean. About 1/2 the place is permanent homes (yes, s&bs) and / or permanent RVs. I would say most are very well kept. The beach is also very clean.

We are on a concrete pad about 8 rows from the beach. There are a few trees, and we have identified a few spots that have a strategically located tree that would provide some morning shade if we come back. Some sites have a little more grassy areas than others. There are shaded spots futher back (most not concrete pads) if you prefer. Yes, it is a high density park, but it did not really feel too bad when it was full over the past weekend (lots of empty spaces during the week, being pre-season which of course is nice).

Very quiet considering park layout too, again, even over the weekend when it was more crowded and with kids aroiund. It was bike week last week, and they do not allow motorcycles past the front entrance (Lakewood's sign noted that you could ride to your site....... Ugh.)

They are going to expand the pool facilities starting this fall, taking some of the spaces just to the north of the pool for a "splash park".

As for the golf carts, they have very strict rules that are well posted about under age driving, and I did not see any kids driving them. We did find the evening golf cart parade an interesting spectacle.

We did decide to drive around a bit yesterday, and checked out the area up to North Myrtle Beach. Yes, it is a classic "tourist destination" with all the shops, mini golf, and restaurants you could imagine, ready to take your money.

Also drove though Myrtle Beach state park to check out the campground. Very wooded, limited hook ups. You would be hard pressed to get a satellite connection. Sites were kind of cramped space wise, but a very pretty setting with easy beach access.

Pirate Land is a similar concept to OL, but just did not seem nearly as nice as OL to us. The facilities seemed dated, the permanent RVs / homes not as nice, and the camping areas near the beach had only some concrete pads, and it really seemed like you would be camping in an open field. Yes, it would be OK, but think OL is worth the premium to us.

We did not check out Lakewood.

In closing, we will probably return to OL in the future, for an easy pre or post summer beach trip. And, as noted, if you don't like the "tourist" part of Myrtle, you can just ignore it like we did, and enjoy the beach.

I'll 2nd Myrtle Beach Travel Park. (Pictures from a few years past at MBTP) I would say it's a little more low key. Surely not as many golf carts as the ones South of Myrtle. No matter when you go in the summer, it will be busy. But, things die down about Aug 10th or 15th. The kids in SC. start school early in that region. So the last two weeks in Aug or the first 3 in Sept. the water will still be like bath water. Close to Restaurant Row and Broadway on the Beach.

As for the golf carts at MBTP, they are fairly restrictive. Only the full time residence, handicapped (and this doesn't mean a mirror tag from your dmv), and the camp/staff that clean the facilities are allowed carts. No motorcycles in the campground period, and they close the gates at 10:00 to most traffic. The store always has the little fill in things you need, be it rv or cooking related, and if not....Wally World and Bass Pro are right around the corner.
There are two Camping Worlds a short drive south, closer to the Ocean Lakes and Pirate Land campgrounds. Lowes and Home Depot a short drive north.
We will be there the 19th of June for one of our regular visits. Look for our old Rambler on the beach side.....you can't miss us. The staff is awesome too by the way.
