Are you driving straight thru, or making a layover? We just got home a hour ago from the state park in myrtle, we live in new jersey along the delaware river, trip took 13 hours, we were lucky tho, no accidents enroute. We have been as long as 15 hours because of accidents. Are you going early am or driving night?
If you drive night, you won't have any delays, we did one trip in 11i/2 hrs.

We like Myrtle Beach Travel Park. Take a drive through there while you're down there. Stop and check out the shower rooms, I think you'll be impressed. We prefer May & September, way less people, everywhere.

Highly recommend Ocean Lakes if you're going to MB. Travel park is nice and so is Lake Wood. Ocean lakes is almost entirely concrete pads, Lake Wood only has concrete on the Ocean Front spots, Travel Park has none. I hope you enjoy Pirate Land, I won't go back. They pack you in pretty tight there, and there is also a sign at the south end of the beach about toxic water at high tide due to a small water way that gets backed up at low tide.

If being on the ocean is not entirely important, I HIGHLY recommend Willow Tree Camping Resort. It's 12 miles inland, but amazing. I posted some pictures in the Eastern USA threads of Willow Tree. Coming from CT, I can understand why you would want to be on the Ocean. We only go to MB in the fall, but I live 3 hours away. MB this time of year is packed, prepare for massive beach traffic, it usually starts to calm down after Labor day. We're going to Ocean Lakes for 8 days the first week in October. It's usually mid 70's and the place looks like a ghost town.

I said all that to say this... have fun. You'll still enjoy it. Take lot's of sunscreen, it's about $10 to $14 a bottle down here.

We stayed at Lakewood one year and Pirateland the next. Pirateland has a nice little lazy river, but Lakewood sites were larger and just seemed like a nicer CG. Really though, I think you can't go wrong either way. We love Myrtle Beach

...and all of Ocean Lakes and most of Travel Park are pull through sites. Pirate Land and Lake Wood are all back in sites. If you have kids, Ocean Lakes and Lake Wood is the way to go. All the campgrounds there stay pretty much booked up, so they're doing something right.
