I'm hoping this will be THE beach campground for us. We're hoping to leave the trailer there and come the following two weekends. They only charge $45 for a month of storage, that is a deal. We've been to Pirateland, Lakewood, and stayed in a house several years back at Ocean Lakes. Just came back from our second visit to HTP Emerald Isle. So far, HTP is the nicest, although smallest with least amount of amenities for the kids. I don't count $9 go cart rides as an amenity. MBTP has a fishing pond, a huge pool, and a lazy river. I also like the MBTP is at the northern end of MB.
Wow you got lucky. it's hard to get into. and as for the min stay. I remember reading. You can book a shorter stay IF you do it less than 2 weeks before you want to go, and they have a site avalable. After all. Two nights rent is better than letting it sit empty. you'l ;love it.
Have fun. We arrive on the 15th at OL. Our camper is stored there now, but we will be taking it with us. We will leave on the 20th and will head to Wilmington and stay at the KOA there a couple nights. Then we hope to hit campgrounds closer to us for the rest of the year. We are really missing Stone Mountain State Park!
While you are at the KOA. Do yourself a big favor, and take 421 to Carolina Beach. Get a bunch of Britt Donuts. They are the very best in the world, and well worth the trip.
Hey, we're a Mike and Michelle family with two kids!! If that place was on the beach, I'd be there. I recommend you try Dick's Last Resort restaurant if you haven't been. They're rude and condescending on purpose, it's a blast! (depending on the age of your kids, it can be a little nasty)

Our kids are 18(son) and 14 (daughter), well guess my 18 is not a kid anymore. We will try that place, I am looking for a place that have chargrilled oysters like they do in New Orleans but not finding many places.
We have camped at other MB parks and for some weird reason Willow Tree fits us. My kids don't really like the ocean and they love the lake at Willow Tree with the inflatables they have. So they go between the beach/lake and the pool all day and they are happy. We do try to get them to the ocean at least once but last time after about 1 hour they were ready to go back to the campground.
We have camped in Destin and they spend all their time at the pool and we have to drag them to the ocean. Guess they have been stung by jellyfish to many times and watched Jaws to much So with that being said Willow Tree gives up the activities of Myrtle Beach and I can sit and put my toes in the samd at the lake and everyone is happy.
I noticed your profile says you play the drums well the 18 year old has been playing the drums since he was 5. He plays in the praise band at our church. Rock On!!!!!!!
