It Could Be The Best Family Vacation Ever, Even If “Camping” Has Never Been A Consideration

June 30, 2009, Myrtle Beach, S.C. — Families who have always dreamed of a fabulous beach vacation, but aren’t willing to pay the big bucks an oceanfront resort usually requires should try a family vacation at Ocean Lakes Family Campground. You don’t have to be into camping. This  private oceanfront campground is a resort that has all the amenities of a high-priced resort without the expenses. With hundreds of rental homes available. Visitors can experience a world so many others have loved for years, without even having to own an RV.

Handled by Ocean Lakes Properties, rentals consist of traditional two-story beach houses, mobile homes and unique cottages that began as trailer homes and have been built into quaint getaways. Rental sites can accommodate 4-21 guests. The rental units are located throughout the Campground and the prices start at $116 a night for a 2-bedroom, 2-bath home.

Compared to thousands of dollars a week at a traditional beach house on the ocean, that’s a steal! Plus, each Ocean Lakes Property is fully furnished including air-conditioning, color, cable TV, and complete kitchen facilities. Guests only need to bring sheets, towels and paper products.

At Ocean Lakes Family Campground visitors have access to nearly a mile of beachfront on the Atlantic Ocean with showers, a snack shack and nearby restrooms and bathhouses. Other amenities include a two-acre Recreation Center with year round planned activities, pools, mini-golf, skate park, a marine life Nature Center, eight freshwater lakes for fishing, and a 24-hour courtesy/security patrol. Guests never have to leave the campground, allowing for control over extra costs that can creep in and drive up the cost of vacation.

Awarded the title of 2008-2009 National “RV Park of the Year” by the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds, Ocean Lakes is the largest campground on the East Coast and one of the largest in the United States with over 310 acres of campsites.
