Bluegrass in May only 14 miles from Ocean Lakes – Official Website: Bluegrass on the Waccamaw


strangerWacLocated about 14 miles from Ocean Lakes Family Campground is historic downtown Conway, South Carolina.  The streets are lined with sprawling live oak trees covered in moss and filled with history.  The Waccamaw River, dark as tea, meanders along beside the railroad tracks, together they once provided the mode of transportation that helped Conway grow and its people prosper.  The history and culture of this friendly little town can be seen and felt as guests stroll through the downtown area.  One of the best days of the year to hear the culture is in May at the old Peanut Warehouse….
