South Carolina Beach CG???

Looking for a great recommendation on a beach CG in South Carolina to take the family for my kids spring break in late April. The DW is searching around, but recommendations are always the best way to go. Any help would be appreciated.

In the Myrtle Beach area, try Ocean Lakes or Myrtle Beach Travel Park for commercial CG's. Further south, we enjoy Huntington Beach SP and Edisto SP. For visiting Charleston, there is a nice KOA in Mt Pleasant.

I would add that it entirely depends on your wants/needs. If you want 'relative' quiet, try one of the state parks. If you want to be able to ride around in a golf cart, putt-putt, on-site pools/waterslides, etc., try one of the more commercial campgrounds. There is plenty to choose from in that area.

We like ocean lakes campgrond. I generally avoid ocean campgrounds because I hate salt spray testing my camper and truck so we always try to get as far off the beach as possible when picking a spot.

If you are looking to be on the beach, there are several to chose from. There are 2 state parks on the beach. Myrtle Beach State Park and Huntington Beach State Park. If you want one of these you better start looking at reservations now. They fill up quickly. Also on the beach, but privately owned, there are 4 that I can think of. Apache CG, in North Myrtle. Longest pier on the east coast. Never stayed there, but have driven through. My least favorite of the 4. A world record 1700 pound shark was once caught from that pier. Down on the other side of Myrtle Beach, there are 3 more CG's. Here is my take on these. Ocean Lakes, by far the most popular. Huge place, with tons of kids, golf carts and people. Easy to get lost in the place. Teens will love it, if you have smaller kids, one of the other 2 may be better suited. Lakewood is right there as well. Never stayed but have walked through. It is a Christian based CG. Lots of rules on alcohol etc. Golf carts and kids galore. Any time I asked to drive through and look, I was always told that it was not allowed. Probably the most strict of the 3 in that area. PirateLand is right there as well, and is where I store my TT, and stay. About the same size as Lakewood. Relaxed environment. Plenty of teens and younger kids. I have been going there for years. I always felt better about my kids there than Ocean Lakes. They rent golf carts(which are everywhere)(in all 3). All 3 are expensive in season and book fast. If you don't want to deal with golf carts, kids and teens, go with the State Parks. If you have kids and teens you will probably enjoy the other 3. Just my 2 cents on them all.

Word of advice about the state parks. They are literally littered with copperhead snakes. They even will tell you that up front on their homepage of the websites. Major reason we will not stay there. We get enough of those on our farm. I don't really plan to vacation with them at the beach if I can help it. Just my opinion.

I have camped in many SC state parks and all in the MyBh area many times. Never seen a snake.

I'm at Myrtle Beach CG now. Enjoying it like many other campers here. ... have done a lot of dog walking - no snakes seen.

We will surely put MBCG in our future plans.

We stayed at Lakewood often, it's nice pool is near the beach, good grills, putt putt, safe place. Not as many Golf carts zooming around as Ocean Lakes. Lots of programs and games for the kids. Great place. Also stayed at Myrtle beach campground, we liked it too, but the kids always wanted to go back to Lakewood.
