Oceanfront Campground Is the Only Campground on the Grand Strand to Make List

With the addition of spectacular summer events from the Carolina Country Music Fest in June through the Beach, Boogie and BBQ Festival on Labor Day Weekend, we're hoping that more people discover all the Grand Strand and Ocean Lakes has to offer.

Ocean Lakes Family Campground, in Myrtle Beach, S.C., has been named to About.com's "Top 5 South Carolina RV Parks You Must Visit" list. The list features five RV parks from various regions of South Carolina. Ocean Lakes is the only campground in the Grand Strand area to appear on the list.

“We were excited to get this unsolicited recognition and see Ocean Lakes included on a list with the best South Carolina has to offer,” said Barb Krumm, Director of Marketing and PR for Ocean Lakes Family Campground. “We work hard to give our guests a great experience and our amenities are second to none. Even though we have nearly one mile of oceanfront, we're looking forward to spring 2016, when we will be able to offer our guests a new two-acre water park as an additional amenity.”
