Myrtle beach

We are planning a trip to myrtle beach in June. We've narrowed it down to 2 CGs. Ocean lakes or Mrytle beach travel park. Who has any recommendations? I have a 42' 5er so
I need something that will fit. Thanks

I've never been to either (or Myrtle Beach at all, in fact)- but from reading forums, here's what I think I remember:

If I recall correctly, MBTP has a "no alcohol" rule but I don't think it is enforced (nor am I finding any mention of it on their site). ON EDIT AFTER Bryan2503S' post: Per the rules- alcohol appears to be allowed.

I know there is at least 1 park in Myrtle Beach that doesn't allow campfires. I thought it was MBTP, but I'm not finding any mention to it on their site.

If I remember reading other forums, people have complained about the abundance of golf carts at Ocean Lakes.

I couldn't find their rules and policies posted - I think you have to call them to ask questions.

For me, I'd have more of an issue with no campfires.

We prefer Ocean Lakes. The grand kids love the pools, both indoor and outdoor. We often rent a golf cart and take the kids to see all the ducks, geese, and swans in the many small lakes within the park. They have food available for the ducks which is fun for the kids.

We will be there next week, for a week, without the kids. We get as close to the ocen as possible and always get a site with a concrete pad, which helps keep dirt and sand out of the rig.

Alcohol is no issue, you just cannot take it off your site. Also, motorcycles are not allowed. The must be park outside the front gate.

If you book online, you will be able to see the site size, both lenght and width, which will be important for your large rig. Free WiFi and cable TV are also nice.

you will need to make your reservations early with a long trailer. Most of the campsites are considerably smaller. My daughter and family and my wife and I have trailers 36' and it was very cramped. They do have some larger sites but you need early reservations. If you are not tied to those 2 camp grounds the Huntington Beach state park is very nice. Beware they do not allow alcohol. They are great otherwise. I think if you are prudent you could get away with the alcohol.

Agreed. I edited my post to reflect that.

Can someone explain this rule:
"Singles are not allowed to stay in your R.V. if you leave before checkout time."
I'm not even sure what that's saying...

That is a weird rule... I spoke with both CG's, ocean lakes has less available that I would fit on, but some availability. I planned on making the reservation later this afternoon. Just wanted some first hand experience for this who have been there.
