Hi! We have camped at Pirate Land, but it has been several years ago. While we were there we took a walk down the beach and strolled through Ocean Lakes and LakeWood just to see what it looked like. All three campgrounds appeared to be very similar in their layout.

I was wondering if there was anyone here that has spent time camping at all three and how they would compare them with both the pros and cons of each.

Thanks.

Haven't camped at all three but have been to Ocean Lakes. Can't imagine any nicer facility in Myrtle Beach, unless you are looking for something more like a state park. They have everything, great security, they keep it clean, new store, laundromat, restaurant, golf car rentals.

You might want to check RVparkreviews.com for more reviews.

We have only camped at Myrtle Beach RV Travel Park on Kings Road. It is incredibly clean, nice size pull thru spaces and helpful/frinedly people.

We will have spent a total of six weeks here at Ocean Lakes. I can't think of a better place to have done it.

This place keeps getting better and improving every year. OL is also a 4 time reciepient of the (large) "Campground of the Year" award.

I consider them similar. Very large campgrounds. Pirate land has the covered picnic table but has sand dumes blocking view of ocean. Ocean Lakes does offer some ocean front spots.
If you go to State Parks, Huntington Beach State Park can not be beat. Short walk to ocean and very large private camping spots. Kinda hard to get a reservation at times.
If you want to stay on North Myrtle Beach and not wanting on the beach. Briarcliffe RV Resort is great. Shady paved spots, clean, friendly and you can ride your bicycle to Barefoot Landing to eat or shop without going on the highway. The two have a cut thru connecting them and some of the sites in the rear are on the Intercoastal.
Lots of choices in Myrtle Beach.

We have stayed at both OceanLakes and LakeWood,both are similiar but we prefer OceanLakes.We just stayed there last week and even though we didn't have reservations and was unable to get an "ocean front" campsite we could still see the ocean(5 sites back) while in the rv and we could hear the ocean all night long! We are retired and prefer to go the end of April and Oct.-great weather,no crowds and not many golfcarts!

Agree 100 percent!!

We've stayed many times at both Ocean Lakes and Lakewood,don't care for Pirateland.
First choice is always Ocean Lakes,but couldn't get particular week in June on way back from Fort Wildermickey,so we're Lakewooding it after Mickey.

Will try the State Park one of these days too I guess... I'm 40' and pulling a Chevy TrailBlazer this trip though..

I'm currently at Apache in MB. I visited all the on the beach campgrounds in MB and in my opinion Apache gives me the most bang for my camping buck. $550 a month electric included for beach front in the off season and access to the longest fishing pier on the east coast is included. There is a super Walmart and a Murphys gas station within a mile.

I'm currently at Apache on lot #79, stop in and say hi. I will be here until after Thanksgiving.

We are planning a 'get out of the house' trip for just after the first of the year. Current plan is Ocean Lakes. Last year we were there for 5 days beginning New Year's eve, but the weather was unseasonably warm. We don't expect that to happen again so may go later this time. When does Myrtle Beach start getting busy? Would late February or early March beat the crowds?
