Like most have said, its a really nice campground. But it can be crowded specially on beach and pool. They remodeled the onsite general store over the winter. Has a nice pavilon with sunday church services plus nice little cafe with ice cream. There is a ChicFilet on site too. The large pool has a lazy river we love plus daily activities like karoake, pool dj and more. You have the choice of a site either close to beach or next to lake which is more wooded. The beach sites are all drive thru with covered picnic tables. Actual waterfront sites are usually reserved months ahead.
There is a walmart just minutes up from it plus a Tanger Outlet that my wife likes on those rainy days. Plus a mall with Bass Pro Shops I like. We found the Kroger to be less crowded for last minute grocery items which is to left of park while Walmart is to right. There is a CVS almost directly across from park real easy to get to plus if you like golf, there is Arcadian Shores next door.
Crabby Mikes is great if you want a big priced buffet meal, we usually go there once a trip as I love their fresh boiled seafood bar. If you want some more laid back local flavor, hit Biminis Oyster bar just up from park, across from Kroger. Go early as its a local hang out but well worth the experience. There is also a nice little deck bar just down the beach toward the pier if you want some adult time within walking distance.
The real good thing about MB park is that if you like to walk or have some quiet time on the beach, just go left on the beach past the Land End condos to an area on the beach that is part of SC nature perserve. If you gonna do alot of MB activities including eating out, and such as One Show, get the big coupon book found free at most store entrances. The One show is great, and not sure if its Monday or Tuesday, but kids were free with paid adult on that nite. May wanna check that.
OK, I'm getting long here but as you can tell...we love the area. Our last visit was last week. Been going down there regularly for 10 yrs, so if have any more questions on area, glad to help if can.
