Over Easter break, we decided to make the trip south to Myrtle Beach in search of the ocean and sunshine. After some research, we selected Lakewood Camping Resort. The campground is located on the beach, just a few miles south of the main area of Myrtle Beach. An important thing to note about this campground is it is huge! Literally thousands of sites. When you book, you choose the area you wish to be in. We choose beach block one, and were assigned to site 1205. I really loved this area of the campground, as it was close to the beach and waterpark, but still had a good amount of trees and was quiet. We were also right next to the parking lot for the waterpark so had no neighbors on one side which was nice for some extra privacy. We also loved the price of this campground, $59/night for oceanblock which included all amenities.
The best part of this campground was the fabulous location beachfront! Although the campground was busy, people were able to spread out on the beach. The beach was also dog friendly this time of year (until May 1). We were in a great location close to beach access, but if you choose to stay in a different area of the park a golf cart or bikes might be needed to get to the beach.
Another big hit with our kids was the waterpark! This typically opens the beginning of April. There are slides with tubes, a spray ground and a pool to enjoy. All included with your stay.
In addition, there is an indoor pool located in the back of the campground next to the beach. This pool is heated! There is also a hot tub inside. This can get busy when it’s cooler but is a great option for when it’s not quite warm enough to be outside.
In addition to the water areas, the campground has lots of other activities included in the price of your stay. Bicycle rentals, mini golf, paddle boat rentals at the lake areas are all included. There are also basketball courts, playgrounds, and cornhole for your enjoyment.
The campground also had an extensive activity schedule, with things such as concerts, egg hunts, basketball competitions, and much more!
In addition, numerous bathhouses and a large laundry facility near the store make it so you never have to wait for a shower or a machine.
There were food trucks in the campground, as well as an icecream shop, coffee house, and well stocked store. Honestly you could have a great time and never set foot out of the campground!
