We have stayed at Pirate Land and think it is a good CG. Located on the Beach, sites are back in, each has a covered picnic table. For an August stay make sure you have reservations.
It is located on the southern part of MB and could be a long ride to Calabash if you are commuting.
There is a new CG opened in Longs, SC, close to the NC Border, have not been there but pictures look nice,
I do not know the Hughes Family CG

Rick & Robin:

I would highly recomend Ocean Lakes Campgrounds which is very close to Pirate Land. We have been going to Ocean Lakes for years and really enjoy it. Take a look at their website at

Carrollwoods LOOKS fantastic. Going to have to try it out. Rates aren't too bad either.

I also like ocean lakes better because concrete spaces if you have slides on both sides they may touch the picnic table hut also alot nicer park and you can bring your on golf cart

I have been to Pirate land several times; the kids loved it when they were younger. I like Ocean lakes and Myrtle Beach state park too. I don’t go in the summer time tho because the crowds.
I am going to try the Carrollwoods campground, which looks interesting. A winery at the campground, wohoo!

Over the last 20 some years we have tried all of them for 1 week stays. Over the last 3-4 trips we really like Myrtle Beach Travel Park because they are located in North Myrtle Beach near Restaurant Row and Boardway on the Beach, more relaxed, low key, super modern showerhouses. The other southern campgrounds (Ocean Lakes, Lakewood and Pirate Land) I just felt it was golf cart city. way too busy..... At MBTP we like the campsites away from the beach near the pool area that are in the big pine forest. You get a nice ocean breeze because your elevated about 15-20 feet higher than the campsites in the sunny "closer to the beach" area. We like the sites in the 500's near the pool.

Golf Cart City….is a good description Superslif! Kids seem to love cruising around in these souped up golf cards with music blaring. That annoyed the crap out of me.

In that area I prefer Ocean Lakes, Pirate Land was looking a little run down, and the Canopies over the picnic tables were in bad shape. The last thing they looked like they put money in was the lazy river pool which I have to say was real nice. I have never been to Myrtle Beach travel park and would like to try it, and the one wiht the winery is on my List!!

I grew up going to Pirateland for summer vacations....every year we made the trip from WV to Myrtle Beach, always Pirateland. We still go back to Myrtle Beach because my dad is retired in Briarcliffe in North Myrtle.

He bought in to Briarcliffe after growing to hate Pirateland. The reservation system changed, and it just seemed like they knew they were always going to be full in the Summer, so they didn't care much about how they treated folks.

I haven't actually been inside the gates of Pirateland in 30 years or more. I'm sure there isn't anything that would resemble the old Pirateland I remember.

We've been going to Lakewood for probably 40 yrs or more at Easter time and love it there. Helps that we meet the kids and grandkids there after not seeing them all winter. We avoid the golf carts by getting sites almost on the border with Pirate Land and as close to the beach as possible. Have to get our sun tan before heading back north for the summer.
