direct oceanfront? --yes

a short drive to the beach? --no stinkin' way

I'd take any of the ocean front CGs in Myrtle Beach for that money any day.

Yes. Direct oceanfront may be better for certain things, and when I take extended vacations, I like those towns too.

But I am a weekend warrior. I can sneak out of work early on Friday, be in OC in a couple of hours, and get in 9 holes and have a good diner. Eighteen holes on Saturday, still have time to enjoy the beach life, get up late, have brunch, take a leisurly drive home on Sunday, and be ready for work on Monday. OBX is over 6 hours, Mytrle is over 8. Not good for quicky weekend trips.

It's all what you're looking for, and what you need. To each his/her their own.

I was just looking at their site. During PEAK season: $114/night direct waterfront. $108/night island oasis. Plus.... If you want a site with your awning facing the water, its an extra $5/night.

Below are Pirateland in MB rates
CAMPSITE NIGHTLY RATES: 2013
Premium w/ Pad & Shelter Premium with Pad Oceanfront Premium
Beach Area Inland Area
Jan 1-Mar 26
$39 $34 $29 $29 $29
Mar 27- May23 $57 $52 $47 $46 $44
May 24 -Sep 1 $78 $73 $68 $66 $64
Sep 2 - Oct 31 $53 $48 $43 $42 $41
Nov 1 - Feb 28,'14 $41 $36 $31 $30 $29

Sites #84A and #613 are $3 more per night than the Premium w/pad and
The formatting did not work as I wanted but the data is still there.
Note the highest price is $68.00 nothing over $90.00 never less $100.00.
Pirate land offers true ocean beach front camping . Not bat front camping.
Frontiertowne which is in the same geographic location is not as expensive either.

As I said earlier I don't fault Castaway's for charging the rate. I assume they believe the market will accept the prices.

Personally I am familiar with Castaways and they have a decent facility however I now believed they have overpriced the market.
In the end time will tell. I'm sure they know the OC,MD camping market place and their own profit margins better than I do.

In this populated state, you'll always find a couple of fools to pay the price. Then they realize later that they could've stayed elsewhere for half the price.

Went there for a bluegrass festival last Sep. Off season rate not too bad. Sorry, $100PN no way. Nice but nowhere near that nice.

Assateague is just down the road. Much nicer at a fraction of the cost.

I want to know how you call a $100 a night park a "campground"? At what point does it become a "rv park" ?
At that price, it's not even rv park, more like resort prices. Personnally, there's nothing that a CG/RV Park (anywhere)has, that makes it worth that much to me.
