Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) September 21, 2012
Summer 2012's record heat and scarce rainfall have finally come to an end. Temperatures are dropping, the leaves are starting to turn, fall is finally here—and there's no better way to enjoy this time of year than to camp out with the family. Ocean Lakes Family Campground in Myrtle Beach, S.C., is the perfect location to make these kinds of lifelong memories.
Well-known as the largest campground on the East Coast—as well as one of the largest in the United States—Ocean Lakes is a 310-acre oceanfront park that offers the relaxation vacationers are searching for while also maintaining a close proximity to Myrtle Beach area attractions.
This private oceanfront campground has all the amenities of a high-priced resort without the expenses. It is the 2011-2012 National “Park of the Year” (in the Mega Park category) and it offers 3,447 sites, 893 of which are large and pull-through to accommodate larger RV's.
On an average seasonal day, Ocean Lakes accommodates 25,000 - 30,000 guests. Once the summer crowds wind down, however, the campground becomes a relaxing fall vacation spot with a wide range of amenities: a mile-long pristine beach, two-acre Recreation Center, indoor pool, mini-golf, skate park, marine life Nature Center, freshwater lakes for fishing, 24-hour courtesy/security patrol, showers, laundry services, a snack shack, and boathouses. Everything a family on vacation would need is available within the campground.
In addition to its many amenities, the campground offers a variety of year-round family-friendly activities.
The annual “Halloween Spooktacular Weekend” had such an impressive turnout last year that it had to be split into two weekends for 2012: Oct. 19-21 and 26-28. Everyone staying at Ocean Lakes is invited to decorate and join in the festivities of The Great Pumpkin Search, pumpkin carving/decorating contests, Spooktacular Magic Shows (on Fridays), kids' costume contests, Halloween games, pet costume contests, Creepy Site Crawls, Evening Monster Mash Balls with adult and group costume contests (on Saturdays), and Trick o' Treats (on Saturdays). Have those candy bags and pumpkins ready; now's the time to make plans to attend.
