Myrtle Beach..July..CG suggestions?

My daughter moved up a level in cheer this year (competitve cheer) and they made nationals which is in July in Myrtle Beach.

Figure might as well make it the family vacation and it's easier to take the dog, and there fore the camper, but a hotel is still not ruled out.

My wife isn't to excited as she figures the traffic and congestion will suck.

So any suggestions on campgrounds around myrtle beach area? I don't have the info on the exact location of the competition but it's a day out of a week's vaca so not too critical where it is.

We love Lakewood Campground. Right on the beach, many nice amenities. This will be our 4th year going down. Looking forward to it already, especially after just getting around 30" of snow!
There are a couple others right next door, which I'm sure many people will tell you their favorites.

Ocean Lakes is our favorite campground, a little pricey in the summer

We stayed at pirateland a couple years ago and really liked it. From what I understand ocean lakes, myrtle beach travel park, and myrtle beach state park are all popular choices as well.

Where ever you stay they are all OK, we do like Ocean Lakes but they are booking up fast or may already be booked up for July.

I know for the most part the 850 sites at Ocean Lakes are booked up for July. We made our July reservations last July.

Good Luck !!!!

Huge fan of Myrtle Beach Travel Park. The DH and I went there for the first time 2 years ago and absolutely fell in love with the place. They have full hookups, but I did find myself using the shower/bath house because it was so nice! We pretty much were beach bums the whole time and enjoyed every minute of it. FYI, if you want to hang at the beach, get up early and set up you umbrella and chairs, then head back to your camper until you're ready to actually go. Everyone does it, and we never had an issue with someone moving our stuff or anything like that. And we were there in mid-July. We plan on heading back sometime this year!!! Good luck!!

We have done Pirateland numerous times. We have also visted Ocean Lake and Myrtle Beach Travel Park several times. My kids prefer Pirateland but our neighbors prefer MBTP

We like both State Parks (Myrtle Beach & Huntington) but like the others they fill up pretty quick. We prefer Huntington down in Murrels Inlet area, a smaller park and a little detached from the "strip" and all the traffic, but not really too far.
Of course, as with most state parks everywhere there are no "resort activities" just good old nature to keep you entertained!

If your event location is in North Myrtle Beach there is Willow Tree RV Resort about 15 mins out of town. Absolutely beautiful park with a little more to do (pool, lake, canoes,game room, etc) Myrtle Beach Campgrounds - WillowTree RV Resort

Good luck in your search!

We've stayed at Ocean Lakes and Myrtle Beach State Park. Completely different experiences.

Ocean Lakes had my skin crawling the first day. It felt like New York city at the beach. The sites are so tight that you will hear conversations (music) from all of your neighbors. It is a party atmosphere for people that like to be around people. However, it grew on me a bit. The kids loved it. I suspect your daughter would too, depending on age. If she is of age that you give her some freedom to roam, I suspect you won't see much of her!

MBSP was typical state park. Quiet, shady. Neighbors keep to themselves. The beach is a little bit of a walk, but it is a nicer beach.
