My family and I are looking at spending a week at the Pirateland Camping Resort over Spring Break. We will be staying in our travel trailer and camping there. We will have two young teenage boys with us. Would enjoy hearing any comments on the good, bad or ugly of this resort.

Thanks in advance for your comments

I'm a local but know a lot about the CG. The sites are tight, but they all are in the "Big 3" in MB! The CG is as advertised, with everything they promise. Pools are great and it is really right on the ocean front. Many, many use golf carts and many drive them like they are race cars. You're going there at the busiest time of the year - please advise exactly when your Spring Break is. Believe it should be in April - after the craziness of all the motorcycle rallies! The worst thing about the CG is how tight the sites are. That is commonplace all over the Grand Strand area particularly when you are on the ocean. Think Pirateland's sites area actually just a little bigger than the other 2 (Lakewood and Ocean Lakes) but defiinitely not by much. The campground, like every other large cg, is loud and crowded during peak time. Most campers though are very friendly. Hopefully the weather will be warm enough to enjoy the pools and the ocean, although in the Spring the ocean can be a bit cool. Try to avoid buying food/supplies inside the campground. There is a WalMart and other stores within 2 miles so that shouldn't be a problem. There is much to do there and the CG is located so you are close to everything there is to do in MB, including a really good municipal golf course (Whispering Pines, just north) and any number of restaurants and activities. If you would like to know more about the area, feel free to PM.

Piratelannd is great. April between Easter, and Memorial Day should be just about perfect. Harley week is in MAY, and Atlantic Bike week is over Men Day. So really you will fall into the inbetween times.

Do get an "beach" area site. the "beach" area sites are in truth very large. Big enough so that you can actually stay hooked up to the TV, IF you want. The sites off the beach are really pretty small.

As mentioned there are grocery stores nearby. Taking a RIGHT out of the campground will get you to the closest, and easiest to reach grocery store. WalMart CAN be a pain to get to and from.
Besides the many things to do in the CG. There is a pile of stuff to do. Minigolf every where you look, and a amusement park not too far up, in Myrtle Beach.

BTW. IF you call, and make a reservation. You can pick your site, IF you pay for 7 or more nights in addvance.

We stayed there in June in one of the inland sites. If you do an inland site, you might want to list your trailer a little longer as the sites can be very small/tight inland. We have a 30 ft TT and were backed up to the very back of the site and had literally about 2 feet to the front of the site. The sites were narrow so putting the TV next to the TT took up a lot of the site also. Many inland sites have trees that you have to be creative to back around to park. Also the inland sites have a very narrow road that would have made backing in interesting if the sites across from us were occupied when we pulled in and out. The beach sites are very open and long. I would probably still stay in an inland site because I liked the shade and being halfway between the pool and the beach. The CG was nice and even in june not very crowded. The lazy river was my favorite, the kiddie pool really cold, big pool was nice. The beach was beautiful, the mini golf a little tired. They have an indoor pool that we didn't check out. The paddle boat was fun. They had a decent arcade and a little snack shop. As stated above there are a lot of golf carts but I understand that is true of all of the big 3 in myrtle beach. We would stay at pirateland again. We had a good time going into myrtle beach and looking around. The skywheel isn't cheap but was a beautiful view.

I booked my trip for June 30th for a week. I heard a lot of good things about this CG. I booked a beach front site and did tell them my TT was a little longer that it actually is. I am looking forward to it....I have 4 kids ages 7-15

Terryallan is right about the Walmart. It's not so much as a pain getting there and back, but it's a pain inside. This has to be the busiest Walmart I have ever seen. Prepare to stand in line at check out for a good while.

AS Terryallan also mentioned, if you turn right out of any of the big 3 and go down a mile or so, there is a Food Lion on the left side. We found this to be just about the best place to buy groceries that is not too crowded.

One thing I forgot, make sure you bring some ant spray to spray around your site. Lots of ants. We were warned ahead of time and sprayed around everywheret he TT touched the ground. Also sprayed a few anthills. No problems after that. Getting into walmart isn't a problem, its getting out. There is a cmping world on the same road as walmart (it is between walmart and pirateland). Great place to go for BBQ is sticky fingers (and yes I know they are a southern chain but we love them).

We love Pirateland! Many things to do there without even leaving the park! Great location for other area attractions. Go down to Murrell's Inlet and eat at Drunken Jacks! It's the best!!!!!

As mentioned the sites are larger at the beach area, #84A would be my pick but I have never been able to get it. I have never stayed inland nor at Lakewood but the sites at Oceanlakes are smaller than Pirateland in my opinion.
