We are planning to take the TT to Myrtle Beach next year. Was wondering if anyone had some recomendations for good family friendly RV parks with full hookups on the ocean. Would like one that is not run down but also one that you don't need to bring your tax returns and proof of income to prove you belong there either.

We will be visiting MB this year but staying a beach house as we booked before we bought the trailer. We plan to visit a few parks to see which one to book for next year.

I would look at Ocean Lakes, Pirateland, and Myrtle Beach Travel Park...in that order.

Ocean Lakes is our favorite place to go there. It is family friendly, with enough things to do, see, eat, etc., that you don't really need to leave the park! I hear ya about 'fitting in'. We first went there with our vintage Palomino popup with its original crudy canvas and paint job...not close to an elite rig!! Its really cool that rigs like ours, folks in tents, and more typical rigs, were all interspersed with big coaches, monster fivers and more. Everybody is friendly and having a good time. They have a great reservation system - you get site-specific details. A couple other campgrounds near there only give you reservations in a general area, not a specific site.

Pirateland was nice too, just not quite as large and amenity-filled as Ocean Lakes. We stayed at a campground-rental trailer at MBTP...it was a nice place too.

Have a great trip!

We stayed at Myrtle Beach Travel Park and liked it. our site was spitting distance from the ocean (across the road). They have all the things you need as well, large store, pool with lazy river, little snack shop etc.

Another vote for Ocean Lakes....... IMO, it's a must for your first visit to MB.

Any of the big four campgrounds at Myrtle Beach --

Myrtle Beach Travel Park
Ocean Lakes
Pirateland
Lakewood

would very likely fit all your requirements. As far as which is the best--everyone has their opinion but in truth they're all pretty nice and you will almost certainly have a great time wherever you choose. We vastly prefer MBTP for several reasons, the main ones being location and lack of golf carts.

All of the ocean front Resorts are pretty good. some larger, and busier than others. We like PirateLand in South Myrtle. Seems like secruity is more on top of things, and they have a Lazy river It's quieter, than the other 2 in the south. Also has huge "Beach" fornt site, with shelters. However. The sites are much smaller back in the trees. You don't want back there.

and we like Myrtle Beach Travel Park in North Myrtle. Also quieter, with no rental golf carts, and huge pull thru sites, with picnic table shelters. and also a lazy river.

As for OL, and LW. Very Nice as well, no lazy river, and no picnic shelters, and somewhat more busy.

Ocean Lakes for us. We have had our camper stored there this spring/summer saving on gas. We will be there next week and we are calling it quits for the beach for the year when we leave and take the camper with us. I can't speak for MBTP, but of the big 3 in the surf side area (Ocean Lakes, Lakewood, and Pirateland), Ocean Lakes is the niciest and most modern. Most of it sites have paved pads and all sites are pull through. They do allow you to bring your personal golf cart. They are the only one of them that do. Other places have rentals except MBTP. Lakewood allows there permanents to have personal golf carts and campers can too, but the campers must store and leave there at the campground. I was just made aware that MBTP roads are not paved. We were going to check it out, but once we heard that, we decided not too. We prefer the paved roads and paved pads of Ocean Lakes. They are level and you don't have to worry as much about sand and dirt. And when it rains it does not get muddy outside your doorstep.
