We got back from a fun-filled trip to Myrtle Beach, SC a couple of weeks ago.
We camped in my Mom’s motor home, like always, but this time we camped at Apache Campground. You can read about the other campgrounds we’ve camped in at Myrtle Beach here and here. I’ll also add a few thoughts on which ones I prefer at the end of the post.
Here’s an onslaught of pictures of the highlights of our trip…
We got all dressed up and went out to the Japanese Steakhouse to celebrate Mom’s birthday!
And then we surprised her with an ice cream cake when we got back to the Camper. She’s going to kill me for posting this picture of her in her “housecoat.”
The girls and I spent an afternoon at Wonderworks at Broadway at the Beach.
Now for my thoughts on where to camp in Myrtle Beach, SC.
If you like to shop and are going to have more people with you than your camper’s bathroom can handle…I would recommend Myrtle Beach Travel Park. They are close to the outlets, are ocean front and have really nice and clean bath houses.
If you have children and like to vacation in one spot (i.e. not leave the campground much), then I would recommend Lakewood. It has a ton of amenities (Water slides, Shows, Miniature golf, paddle boats, bikes etc.) all in the campground. The downside of Lakewood is that it is so large it is almost impossible to walk from place to place.
I would recommend Apache if you have kids and still want to be close to the outlets. I didn’t go in the bathhouses this time as they were renovating the one closest to our spot. The girls enjoyed the pool and splash area (although there was no lifeguard on duty) and we also enjoyed the Pier which had live music nightly.
