Ocean Lakes Family Campground – Myrtle Beach, SC


This is a huge campground… with nearly one mile of sandy beach right on the Atlantic Ocean! Ocean Lakes has lots of amenities. “Sandy Harbor Family Fun Center” is part of a 2 acre recreation complex and includes a pool area with sun decks, a game center, a mini-golf course and an indoor/outdoor Cafe. Their “Camptown Center” is in the heart of the campground and features a store, a laundromat, “Center Stage” and “Sandy’s Meet n’ Eat”. They even have an RV Center, a large RV supply store and a service and parts department.

Right at the campground is the “Ocean Lakes Nature Center” that offers exhibits and information on shells, fossils, sea life, wildlife and ecology of coastal South Carolina.

Along the campground’s oceanfront there are large playgrounds and outdoor recreation games like volleyball in the sand, shuffleboard or basketball. You can get the equipment in the recreation office. The Recreation Building is only feet from the ocean and features many activities too! You could actually spend your entire vacation right at the campground… there’s so much to see and do.

If you’re looking for peace and quiet, this is not the place to go. Ocean Lakes can be extremely busy during the summer. Campsites are really quite small, with little privacy. The pool can be packed and traffic is coming in all day and night and golf carts are everywhere. At night the oceanfront area becomes “the strip”, and everyone heads their in their golf carts.

Ocean Lakes Campground is in a great location that’s central to Myrtle Beach destinations including “Broadway at the Beach, “Surfside” and the downtown area.

Overall this is great campground for families and campers who don’t mind giving up some privacy for a lot of activity. We did enjoy it and will return… but it does also make you appreciate those peace and quiet campgrounds too!


  1. I am a member of this park and I beg to differ. I bring my family to this park all the time and happened to be out the same weekend as this with the big event going on. I thought the staff, sites and recreation was exceptional we love coming here and would refer anyone we know here to buy a membership. Membership has its privledges and that is why we have benefits that the public may not have. The manager was asked by my wife if they could possibly do anything about the noise and he did take care of it. We were out enjoying our campfire til 11pm and at that time we no longer had any problems with the noise. I am offended by this review because I feel being a member this is also my park. We love the park and encourage anyone and everyone to come and enjoy this Ocean Canyon Properties park as well as there other wonderful location. Hopefully one persons opinion does not change the way the person whom is reading this opinion on this park Tres Rios River Resort an Ocean Canyon Properties Private Membership Park.

    Very Proudy Member of Tres Rios and the Ocean Canyon Family!
