This family owned ocean-front campground was built in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in 1959. At 19 years old, Don suggested to his dad that they build a campground. The state park was overflowing. So, they were the first campground in Myrtle Beach of its kind as it offered electric and water at the sites. Now Lakewood Camping Resort has about 1900 sites of all types and offers water parks, entertainment, miniature golf, paddle boats on their pond, and all kinds of wonderful amenities as well as a lot of ocean front to enjoy.
Every campground has a personality of its own. At the historic Sou’Wester Lodge, you have the opportunity to take part in a unique camping experience.
This well-chosen location also includes activities such as boating and kayaking, plus a kids playground. Group potluck style meal preparation with everyone pitching in is great fun with family and friends close by. And the RV awning and kitchens help make the process more comfortable. Long-term experience helps the families with herding the cats for this event. This kind of family RVing event can be a lifelong tradition.
