Route 95 South to Ocean Lakes Cmpg Myrtle Beach

Okay...Forest River Viper 5th wheel that measures 13'2" HIGH! Best route from 95 South to Myrtle Beach...Ocean Lakes Family Cmpg? We are VERY concerned about lower over passes. We have never traveled to Myrtle Beach...not familiar with the roads. Looks like Route 501 is most direct, but is it good for basically a tractor trailer..LOL! Any help would be appreciated

You will be fine on 501 to myrtle beach. You will probably take 95 to a little town called latte which is hwy 38 which will run you over to 501. Thousands of campers run those roads each year so you will be fine. I'm over 13' with my 5er too

Get ready for traffic! The red light at ocean lakes backs up terribly. The last two miles had taken me an hour before. There is no better way, just be ready if your travelling on a Saturday.

Take 501 to Ocean Lakes twice a year with 41ft 13 high fiver with no problems. As Moorecrew said traffic can we awful depending on the day and time you arrive, have a great time.

We are ending to Ocean Lakes April 18 for a week and that's the route we take. Traffic starts to get bad around April because of spring break vacations from schools.

We usually end up there about 1130. We come from atlanta so it just ends up that way. However, not sure it gets any better until later afternoon. Maybe 3ish. That's one reason we started staying at myrtle beach travel park. It's north myrtle. NO TRAFFIC. Drive right in.

We go from Emerald Isle to Ocean Lakes several times a year. Next trip Memorial Day. It is actually Hwy 544 that goes straight into Ocean Lakes. Shouldn't be a problem with traffic until Easter. I'm right at 13' and no problems on Hwy17, 31 and 544. Have FUN!

We normally go down mid day Friday arriving around noon in the middle of July and stay until Saturday night usually leave around 6 the next weekend just to miss the traffic.
