The camping spots were big rig friendly with most offering pull-though paved parking, 50 amps, water, sewer and cable TV. There are those beach campgrounds where we have been crammed camper to camper with little space between. That is not the case at Ocean Lakes. We had ample space to not only have our awning and seating, but space to park the truck as well. We use cell data for Internet, both AT&T and Verizon provided reasonable bandwidth along with campground provided Internet. And if that wasn’t enough, the campground also provides the Starfish Radio station that played much of our favorite beach music.
About Ocean Lakes Family Campground
This family oriented campground started with the Jackson family almost 50 years ago. With a humble beginning of 30 campsites, Ocean Lakes has grown to 859 campsites on 310 acres offering an enjoyable family experience to thousands of guests each year. Still owned and operated by the Jackson family, we were impressed with the high level of customer service and the facilities overall. But, this is not your normal campground. There’s so much more to experience.
Of course there’s the beautify Myrtle Beach. Depending on the location in the campground, the beach is a short walk through the dunes. This is a typical of southern east coast beach with firm sand, large open area to the water’s edge and great places to play and sun for the day.
The southeastern corner of the campground has large playgrounds with basketball courts, shuffleboard, kid’s playgrounds and more. Plenty of space to ride bikes. There’s a fun center with hundreds of coin operated arcade games and café.
Of course you can walk throughout the campground, but with this amount of amenities and 859 campground spots, a golf cart would be nice. Ocean Lakes thought of that too. Golf cart rentals are available along with service and sales. Plus, Ocean Lakes has a RV sales and service facility on site, in case you want to upgrade or need repairs.
Then we have the water park. This is not your typical small swimming pool in the corner of the campground. This is a full featured water park with large lap pool, indoor pool for the cooler months, lazy river, tube slides, mat slides, kiddy pool, splash area and putt putt golf.
The camp store had a small grocery with food and all things for the beach. A Laundromat with 100 machines, Sandy’s Meet and Eat for breakfast, dinner and ice cream. And if that wasn’t enough, the campground hosts musical acts throughout the year.
