Ocean Lakes is much newer and I really like it more than my wife. She likes the pavilions, the lakes and the lazy river at Pirateland. I liked the laundry service at Ocean Lakes. A couple years ago we were leaving Ocean Lakes and stopping for a couple days in North Carolina on the way home and we needed to do laundry. We hit the service at OL and they delivered our laundry clean, folded and wrapped to our site the night before we were leaving and it was cheap. I also liked the RV dealer/shop at Ocean Lakes. I realized my then TT had a broken tail light, so I jumped in the golf cart and rode to the shop, looked around and left with a new lens. All without starting the truck. Another note, Ocean Lakes has the express check-in where PirateLand does not.

That would be Lakewood. Quickly scratched them off my list.

Thanks for the responses. We are excited to check it out. This will be the furthest we have traveled with the camper.

We have camped at Ocean Lakes, Myrtle Beach Travel Park as well as PirateLand. My children prefer going to PirateLand. Take bicycles or rent a golf cart ($$$$) It is a large campground. I <3 the Lazy River there. The pool area was remodeled last year adding a splash park for small children.
Traffic can be heavy making the left off of 544 (I think that is the road number) onto US17 Business

We were last at pirateland in 2011. We stayed at an inland site because we had wanted a little shade. Be careful in these sites as they are very tight. We had a 30' tt at the time and barely fit in the site (rear bumper of tt as far back as possible, front tip of hitch less than a foot off the road. Had there been a rig directly across from us when parking and leaving we would have had a lot of trouble. The beach area sites are much nicer. To be fair I was warned that I would probably like the other sites better. The nice thing about the inland sites was it was a short walk to the beach and a short walk to the pool/gameroom areas. We didn't need a golf cart with these sites.

Cancel your reservations and go to Lakewood next to Pirateland. Lots more to do and the kids will love it.

We were there last summer, the week after 4th of July. It was busy, but not crowded for what is considered a destination area. Pireatand was perfect we had an ocean front site that was a nice size! The beaches were perfect and not overly crowded. Yes get a golf cart and bring some stuff to decorate it for the nightly golf cart parade. The nice thing about PL is all golf cart traffic stops at 11, you cannot drive a golf cart after 11. So all you here is the waves from the ocean.

Plenty to do at PL. The pool area is great, arcade and mini golf are nice too.

Enjoy your trip!
