Myrtle Beach advice needed

Would like to go to Myrtle beach end of June for a week with my Class A. Where is the best campground to stay?

My priorities, in order:

1) Beach or close to beach camping with 50 AMP service, water, and sewer
2) Close to places to go at night (will be renting car)
3) Wooded or private campsite (not crucial but nice to have.

Just tried to book lakewood but very expensive and want to be paid in full up front. Low cancellation fees but sheesh, I was hoping my poor Canadian dollar would appreciate a little before getting hit upside the head.

yep

They are all good and set up the same way Travel park is the one we stay at yearly and like it, seems to be more geared to adults in the off season, close to attractions on the north end of south Myrtle IMOP the cleanest and largest bath houses. Lakewood on the south end of south Myrtle Like I said they are all set up the same so No, 3 isn`t going to be there. If you pick Travel Park backed up to the lake is the most private but still right in there with other people.

Ocean Lakes has won campground of the year for several years.
the state Park is the best one for trees. These campgrounds are huge. Good luck with the privacy. We like to get the last or next to last spot at the end of the row, At Ocean Lakes, to have a ocean view.

We have stayed at Ocean Lakes. This is a huge (900+sites) place
with a lot going on, especially on summer weekends. It is right
on the ocean, and has all the amenities. We felt it was a very good
option, most of the full hookup places in the area are very big
operations, with much to do. Easy to get to, and easy in and out,
no problems for big rigs. I would suggest you make your reservations
NOW. The place is likely very sold-out by now. If you avoid the
weekend, you will have a better chance of getting a site.

Ocean Lakes Family Campground

Ocean Lakes Family Campground hosted the 2014 iRV2.com National Rally with more than 125 members in attendance.

We had a blast!

I view Ocean Lakes as my "home" park since we live out in Conway.

The options are too numerous to list here however for shopping, dining and entertainment, Myrtle Beach is very hard to beat. Ocean Lakes offers beach front sites and all the amenities. New for 2016 is a NEW and expanded water park. The new feature should be in commission by June.

Up front I'll say that the park is going to be busy in the summer months but it's a small city however it continues to be very popular with campers.

"Today, Ocean Lakes features 859 campsites and 2,560 annual lease sites on 310 oceanfront acres with nearly one mile of beachfront, five bathhouses, and more than 450 employees in the height of the camping season. It is the largest campground on the east coast and one of the largest in the United States."

While I'm not really into campgrounds the 2014 rally at Ocean Lakes mentioned by Mike was great. Outstanding campground.

Also, check out North Myrtle Beach. Can't remember campground, but they are right on the beach and have probably 300+or- sites. Dave

Depending on the size rig, most are going to be full. I had a reservation for our 36' DP from July 1-10 and tried to change sites for our new (picking up Saturday) 43' 5er. No sites available for tha duration of stay from beginning of June through last week of July. We ended up booking July 29-August 7.

In our search, MBTB, Lakewood, and Apache had space, but most of them required you to rent a golf cart (couldn't bring your own).

Ocean Lakes is not for everyone, but if you can tolerate the crowd and golf carts then it really is a good place to be. We only leave the park on the golf cart to eat breakfast (once per visit) and pick up needed supplies at the Walmart across the street.
