Ocean lakes, Lakewood and pirateland are very similar and right on the ocean south of myrtle beach. Myrtle beach travel park is nice to and is closer to the heart of myrtle beach. At pirateland most of the sites have wooden pavilion s and a nice lazy river, indoor and outdoor pools and hot tub. Lakewood has an indoor and out door pool hot tub and lazy river. Ocean lakes every site is a pull thru and no hot tub. All the big parks on the ocean are really nice. Summertime is the busy season be prepared for tons of kids and golf carts.

It really depends on how much privacy you prefer. I've only stayed at Lakewood and Ocean Lakes but have driven through Pirate land and the state park. If you wanted a wooded private more traditional type of campsite, I would suggest the state park. The other 3 are mega parks and you will be amongst many other campers so privacy will not be achieved. Ocean lakes caters to golf carts and looks like Times Square in NY when everyone starts cruisin up and down the ocean front road. Lots of fun if that's what you like. If you are up front near the beach, you need to be a friendly person who doesn't mind lots of passers by. The sites at OL are pretty tight as well.
Lakewood sites are a little bigger and the crowd there seems to be a little more laid back than at OL. You will still have the golf cart parades but nothing like at OL. There are some really nice areas that are more quiet and secluded from the oceanfront area as well. Pirate land is similar to Lakewood but I've never stayed there.
Really depends on what you like. I suggest to pick one and visit the others while there to see for yourself! Also please understand I have only been to Myrtle Beach during the summer months. I'm sure that off season all of these places are much nicer.

Personally Huntington Beach State Park is the best of all the Myrtle Beach campgrounds. Unfortunately, it's going to be difficult to get reservations this late. It is further out, but still easy to get into town, and a beautiful beach. The parks in Myrtle Beach are huge, everyone camped very close to each other. Yes, they have all the amenities, but absolutely no privacy. Just my opinion.

We usually use Myrtle Beach Travel Park if we are looking for a full service RV park. Otherwise we will be at either Huntington Beach or Myrtle Beach State park. Nothing wrong with Ocean Lakes, Apache or the others, just our preference. This late in the season it is going to be a challenge to find reservable space.

Over the last 20 years we have stayed at the 4 major RV parks. The last 3-4 times at Myrtle Beach Travel Park. We have found MB Travel Park a little more low key. Not as many golf carts buzzing around. Close to shopping, entertainment and Restaurant Row. Because we had a hybrid tt, we always opted for the shady sites near the pool. Here are a few pics from 2010 MB 2010

We're currently at Myrtle Beach Travel Park til the 1st week of April. The sites are easy in & out, they all seem to have a covered picnic table, 50amp w/w&s. It's a huge park but currently a lot of open spaces to get in. Don't know how it would be in the busy season, but I would expect it to be pretty crazy if it was full. Conveniently located for shopping, a super WalMart is just up the street, and of course more restaurants than you can shake a stick at are close by. Oh, and I've never seen so many miniature golf places in one area in my life. I would rule out Briarcliffe RV Resort, Wayyyy too expensive for what they offer, which isn't much. They wanted $1400 for the month of March. That's just crazy!!!

As already noted none of the commercial RV parks in MB offer much 'privacy'. They do offer the beach experience. We love to go to MB but would never consider going during the summer months.... too crowded, too much traffic.

Ocean Lakes is our favorite and if you can get a space in the back of the 4000 section, that would offer more 'privacy' than the other sections..... there are some trees in that section and it is farther from the ocean. Myrtle Beach Travel Park on the north end is a fine park. If you don't have to be on the beach, Willow Tree in Long's SC is a beautiful RV park with a large lake with a man made beach, pool, and large beautiful sites. It offers much more peace and quiet than anything in Myrtle Beach.
