Please feel free to keep the food suggestions coming, we like to eat
You can do the same thing at Pirate Land, and you won`t trip over your car/truck when coming out of the RV.

Better to have a bad day of camping than a good day at work!

Traffic shouldn't be bad at the time you are going.

So, the next steps are:

Take the I-20 East exit towards Florence. This is a right exit off of I-26, careful, it is a tight loop to the right and you have traffic from I-20 trying to merge onto I-26 so getting off I-26 can be a pain. You'll stay on I-20 East for about 77 miles.

Take the I-95 North exit toward Fayetteville. This exit will be before you get to Florence and it is a left lane exit. When you merge into I-95 you'll be merging from the left so watch the traffic on your right.

Go about 9 miles on I-95, exit right off of I-95 onto SC 327 (exit 170).

Go about 3 miles on SC327 and turn left onto state rd S-21-24. (don't worry, if you miss this turn, just keep going straight, it goes directly to US301/76, you'd then turn left onto 301/76)

Go about 6 miles, turn LEFT onto US301/76.

Go about 10 miles, stay RIGHT on US 576

Go about 4 miles, US 576 will merge with US 501

Go about 32 miles on US 501, turn right onto SC 544. (you'll go through a few towns on 501, when you get to Conway you aren't too far away. It's congested through there so be careful. You'll cross over the Intracoastal just after Conway. SC 544 is about 3 or so miles from the power plant(huge place). You'll turn right on SC544)

You'll go about 13 miles on 544 and it takes you directly to Hwy 17 Business. Again, it can get very congested in that area. You'll cross under Bypass 17 but just keep going. 544 goes directly into Business 17. When you get to 17, Ocean Lakes is directly across from the traffic signal. Google maps shows you taking a right onto 17, then a U turn, then turn right into the campground. Last time we were there you could just go straight across at the light directly into the campground. I haven't been there in a couple years so I'm not sure.

Just wanted to say thanks for this info, it was spot on.

If you are into Mexican food, go north to Market Commons, about 2 miles up from OL, turn left off of 17 and in the middle of the development on the right is a place called NACHO HIPPO. Fantastic food. If you go south you can find the best burger joint in the area at a place called River City Cafe in Surfside Beach about 6 miles from where you are. Diagonally from that is Bubba's Fish Shack and the best fried grouper and hush puppies around. Also, up in MB is a new place called 2nd Avenue Pier..Great steaks. Dang, now I'm hungry and it's time for bed!!!
We didn't make it to Nacho Hippo but did meet some friends at River City Cafe. That was probably top 3 in the hamburgers I have eaten. I wanted to get back a second time but just couldn't find the time.

This was the one place we forgot to drive through and check out. I can safely say that next time we are in MB we will check it out. We had a pretty good time and it will likely be a somewhat regular trip for us.

Glad to hear you had a good time. We were there last week of July/ first of Aug but we had already booked a condo. (Inlet Pointe, 2.1 mi south of Garden City Pier) The condo is directly across from the restaurants at Murrells Inlet. It is one of the best condo deals on the beach.

Also, since it is in Georgetown county, you can still use an EZ up on the beach. Beaches on that end are nowhere near as crowded as Dirty Myrtle, so they haven't had a problem with them. We left our frame up all week and just carried the cover back and forth. We chained our beach chairs to the boardwalk that crosses the dunes so as to not have to carry them. All we took back and forth were the coolers. Some folks didn't even chain their chairs, usually no one will mess with them.

Yep, I like RCC too, good stuff there.

That area has a lot of stuff to do and we have always enjoyed it. We may check out Litchfield next year since we now have a camper.

The condo we stayed in has a dock on Murrell's inlet and that Friday of our stay we really got into the flounder. We caught a ton of them right off the pier. That was the most fun fishing I've had in a long time. We're going to fry them up this weekend.

I know they have barefoot landing with all the shops up near North Myrtle, but there's also a big flea market down at Garden City. It's a lot of fun to go there.
