Myrtle Beach at Thanksgiving - looking for FHU

FHU = full hook ups (electric/water/sewer). That's the easy part.

Now here's where the conflicts come:
1) I'd like something a little roomy from my neighbors rigs
2) I'd like to be close to the beach (walking distance is ideal)

Right now, I'm leaning towards Myrtle Beach Travel Park Campground - it has the FHU and close to the beach. It doesn't have the roominess around the sites, I assume (never been there).

Any thoughts?

I go to Myrtle Beach Travel Park nearly every February, but never have been at Thanksgiving. It's right on the beach, with just a large sand dune between the camping area and the beach proper.

There's not a lot of space between campsites, but this is a large campground that's not very crowded at all in winter, but don't know about Thanksgiving. We like it because it's located in the area that's between Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach, so you're not very far away from attractions in either direction.

Agreed. We camped coming back from Florida at the end of December last year and it was chilly (30s-40s). I'm hopeful that it won't end up that cold and if it does, we may consider cancelling the trip or shortening it or something. We'll see.

We go to Ocean Lakes Campground in Myrtle Beach every Thanksgiving Some years warm mid 70s , some cool but when you are with family that's what is important. Totally different campground than during the summer. It is warm on the ocean than inland a few miles......

Nice thing is you can get concrete pads.

Just got back from there & had a great time.............

Agree with the weather, we live straight west and a little north, some times the weather is great and other times @ Thanksgiving it is miserable, but that's just camping. You have to take what old Mother Nature delivers and be happy.

Have you been in/seen MBTP? Any pros/cons either way?

Hate to say it but we have been going to Ocean Lakes for years & not been in MBTP . The only campground that I have been told to avoid is Apache (but I am sure there are some that like it too........)

That's fair! We'll likely pick one of the two and be happy with it.
